Inserting Videos

You can insert videos to be played for everyone in the room. The video file must be hosted on Youtube or another 3rd-party server. Vyew does not directly host videos because of their size.

Note: Videos and animations embedded in a powerpoint do not survive the import into Vyew. You must insert them separately, as described here.

Inserting YouTube videos

For videos you’ve uploaded to, or found on, YouTube:

  • You can search YouTube directly within Vyew.
  • You can copy the full YouTube URL (e.g., ““) into our video player.
Note: You must use the full URL of the video from your browser’s address bar. YouTube “share” links (e.g., ““) do not work.
Note: YouTube videos with embedding disabled cannot be inserted into Vyew.
Note: YouTube videos disallowed in certain geographical areas (many music videos are like this) will not be visible by meeting participants in those geographical areas.

Inserting 3rd-party-hosted FLV videos

You can host your own FLV video files on your own, or another, 3rd-party server. You will need the direct URI for that file to insert it into your Vyew room.

Sync Mode and Videos

If in Sync Mode, when you play, pause or reposition a Youtube video, it will for your attendees too.
3rd-party-hosted FLV videos, however, are not syncable. You attendees will need to play or pause the video player themselves.

You can set automatic control options for the player.
The 3rd-party FLV video player is resizable. The Youtube video player is not.
