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.
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., “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtX8nswnUKU“) into our video player.
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.

Searching on Youtube
In the Search for Videos tab, enter the search term.

Paste or type into the Insert from URL tab the direct URL to the Youtube video, or the URI of your 3rd-party hosted FLV file. Click Insert Video.
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.
Video Player Options
You can set automatic control options for the player.
The 3rd-party FLV video player is resizable. The Youtube video player is not.
