Technology: Sharing Videos in your Lync Meetings

I recently got a customer request that they wanted to show a video through their Lync meetings.  With Lync, you can share presentations, whiteboard, your desktop, but sharing videos in the past has been a challenge.

Great News!  

Lync 2013 adds the capability to share videos during the meeting.

How Do You Do It?

You embed the video inside the presentation. The video file must be a mp4 format.

To perform this procedure, execute the following steps

  • Launch PowerPoint
  • Create a new slide
  • Select Insert from the Menu
