YouTube Sharing Tips

  • If the video is Private, it will not play for other users. The video must be Public or Unlisted. Also, if you do not allow embedding, it won't play in BigMarker's conference room either. Here is more help in regards to YouTube privacy and embedding.
  • If you are using "adult" content, people with "Safety Mode" on will not be able to watch it. This is tricky to fix. Basically, the attendee needs to go into their personal YouTube settings and turn off "Safety Mode".
  • If your Mic is on, it will still be going as the video goes. So, if you talk, you will talk over the video. However, this may cause echo, so you will need to turn down your volume on your computer.
