Adobe Connect: Screen Sharing- Share Computer Audio

Community Beginner ,

While hosing a webinar in Adobe Connect, I would like to share my computer's audio during a screen share but I do not see an option. For instance, if I am sharing a youtube video, I would like my attendees to both see and hear the video through their own computer.

 

I know Zoom provides this option for its hosts. I would appreciate any information if this is a feature available for Adobe Connect and if so, how to enable the feature.

 

Thank you.

There are two primary ways of sharing Video in Adobe Connect:

- upload a video to the room like any other document and the Host/Presenter can manage the playback

- use a youtube player custom pod found here: https://www.adobe.com/products/adobeconnect/apps/youtube-player.html

 

There are some other options which I will be glad to discuss if you like.

If you know of any ways to share audio off of a live website that would be great as well. Thank you.

Dear Mr.zweigle,

Greeting from Tehran, I’m a teacher at an internatinal school in Tehran, and we’ve been using adobe connect since the upcomming circumistance has happened,
We have a serius problom of sharing audio while we are sharing a youtube movie, the only person who is a host can hear the audio. I read what you suggest, like uploading a video but it takes a lot of time for us( because of Iran’s internet connection), you suggested another way which is downloading a youtube video downloader as a default downloder then the voice is being shared, but I have a problom with downloading it, I couldn’t find it anywhere to download for free, so I can not use it, You said that there are some other ways to share the audio aswell, I would be glad if you can explain them to me. Unfortunatly the problom has influenced all of us. So your help means alot to all of us.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you,

Regards,
G.teacher

We are in the same boat. unfortunately, I had a problem like yours that I had to shift to Zoom application despite my willingness.I think this is a big deal for a big company like adobe.

There are some other ways of bringing youtube video into a meeting (with audio) but each user controls playback (both in the live and archived session).

 

While screen sharing in Adobe Connect is just that, 'Document' sharing in Adobe Connect is so much more.
Adobe Connect allows for upload and playback of pre-authored video with audio in both the live and archived sessions, this includes video and audio embedded in asynchronous interactive content such as a Captivate Scenario based training.

 

If you need more feel free to contact me, I'll be glad to help.

This should be added to the app as a new feature.  The ability to share PC audio would improve the flexibility of the tool and allow for a more organic, less planned way of presenting information.

The same here. I am not so interested in youtube videos, I very seldom play them in my lessons anyway, I prefer to give the links for my students to listen at home. Instead, I have a need to do eg listening exercises from live webpages (BBC Learning English, British council just to name a few). Ok, some of them can be downloaded as MP3 and then brought to adobe connect through document share, but not all and I think it is too much hassle. So, if this feature of sharing audio from websites is not possible in adobe connect, I have to opt for Zoom, too.

Ok, this can be done and it isn't actually that difficult.

You need some 3rd party software. I use something called ManyCam, although I have heard others who have used Open Broadcast Software (OBS).

What these do is to allow you to create a "Virtual Webcam" that can mix down desktop captures, IP cameras, multiple webcams etc. Not quite what you want, however...

They can also capture multiple audio sources (including desktop audio) and make them available as the audio from the "Virtual Webvcam". So you can mix your headset microphone with your desktop audio and then use that as your "Microphone" in Adobe Connect. Then any audio you hear, your attendees will too....

Note, this software also includes a basic mixer to allow you to set the audio levels and independantly mute each audio source if required.

I use this method on a daily basis.

This is a great suggestion, but only for those with the technical expertise. Adobe needs to add the ability to share system audio in a screen share in the same way you can do this in other platforms e.g. Zoom and Teams. Many presenters would not be able to install and configure OBS, or want to.

Hello,
I have installed ManyCam on my laptop and your post interested me in.
Actually I would like to share a video in Adobe Connect - no matter if it is playing directly from my device or online sources - and for sure I am eager my attendees to hear the audio as well. 

 

Will you please explain step-by-step how you use ManyCam to share video file include it`s audio?
That would be very kind if you help me.

 

Thanks
Amir Norouz

Apologies for the delayed response, but in case you are still interested / need to know!

Firstly, please realize that this isn't about video playback specifically, it doesn't matter what you are sharing, you are sharing your screen and audio. (So, could be a locally playing video file, could be an online video, could be a game. Doesn't matter!)

To share the audio, in Adobe Connect, set your microphone to be "ManyCam Virtual Webcam"
In ManyCam, on the far right, select the second icon from the top, which is Audio. You need 2 audio sources (so add if needed.) One is you actual microphone (that you previously selected in Adobe Connect) and the other is "System Sound". You can then set levels / mute independantly.

Word of warning, though. I highly rcommend using a headset, not setting the System Sound to the headset, but selecting it in Adobe Connect as your "Speakers". This is because, if you don't, the above setup can lead to a "feedback / echo loop" where if your attendees speak, the audio (for you) comes out of the System Ausio which Mancam will pick up and re-transmit to the attendees. With a delay. Making it AWFUL!!! Alternatively, make sure you mute System Audio (in ManyCam) unless you are actually needing to share audio (like when playing a video.)

HTH and again, sorry for th delayed response!

I am having a similar but different issue. I am trying to play mp4 video's in a file share pod while connected to audio converence. I am not hearing any audio over the audio conference. My microphone and speakers work fine. But, no video audio outside me hering it live off my computer.

 

Could this be a flash issue?

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

This is expected behavior. Content in the Share pod with audio will not have audio broadcast over telephone connections.

While there are many reasons for this, but the biggest is that there is no way to manage the latency of the audio on the phone bridge so if it were rebroadcast over the phone it would almost always be out of sync to some degree with the visuals of the video. When the audio is through the computer, along with the video, then it can all be delivered in sync.
