Hi, my name is Sethi and welcome back to the channel

where we make educational technology easy for you.

In today's video, I'm going to show you how you can share

a video or present a slideshow that has video material

in it in Google Meet. So let's dive into it with another

Flipped Classroom tutorial. Now, sharing videos via Google

Meet has been a bit of an issue sometimes and I keep seeing

the same question in the comment section on this channel.

"How do I share my videos in a Google Meet?"

Now, in order for us to do this, we're going to have to

not screen share, but we're going to have to use something

called casting. Now, casting means that you're sending a

signal to an external device. In this case, that external

device will be Google Meet. Now, there are three steps

we're going to have to take in order for us to be able to

do this. Now, in the description, you'll find time stamps

to these steps, so if anything goes wrong, make sure to

just jump back into that description and you'll find the

steps. Now, the first thing we'll have to do is make sure

that we're using Chrome. Now, when you're using Google

Chrome, go ahead and open it up, and then find your menu.

Now, in order for you to find that menu, you're going to

click on the three dots in the top right corner. Now, once

you've clicked on those three dots, what you're going to

see is that one of the options there is "Cast". Now go

ahead and click on "Cast". Now, casting a website or a tab

means that you are sending it to an external device.

If you've heard of Chromecasts before, it's a way of

sending this to your television. If you've used an Amazon

speaker or any other external speaker, you can cast things

to those speakers. You can also cast to smart TVs.

Now, here, we're going to be casting to a Google Meet.

You can see I now have this icon at the top and I'm going

to right-click on that icon, because what I want to do is

I want to make sure that I always see this icon. So go

ahead and click on "Always show icon". This has now prepared

our browser to start using Google Cast, but our applications

are not yet talking to each other. So go ahead and go back

to that icon and right-click on the icon. Once you've right-

clicked, you're going to enable cloud services. Now, cloud

services, that's where applications are now able to talk

to each other. So our Chrome browser is going to be able

to talk to Google Meet. Our Meet is going to be able to

talk to other applications. Now, these two steps are the

two most important steps. Step number three is all about

the meeting itself. Now, we cannot cast a website with a

video or a slideshow with a video into a meeting unless

that meeting was scheduled in our calendar. So let's go

ahead and open up Google Calendar. We're going to click on

those nine dots, and we're going to find the Calendar.

Now, in order for you to be able to cast, it has to be an

active meeting. So you cannot cast into a meeting that

takes place the next day or next week. So let's go ahead

and create a new event, and attach a meeting to that.

I'm going to click on this time here, and we're going to

create a new event. Now, I do want this event to be an

ongoing event, so I'm going to start it in the past and

Watch video from 03:00 - 6:00

call this "Demo Event with Casting". And then, in order

for us to add a meeting, we're going to add a conferencing

call. Go ahead and click on "Add conferencing", and we

now have a Google Meet. So go ahead and save this event,

and there we go. Now, casting a website is fairly easy,

so let's go ahead and open up our Google meeting. Now,

we're going to go ahead and join this meet, and you can

see that the camera is now on. We are in the Google Meet,

and we're going to join this room. Now, I am going to

turn off my microphone, and we're going to join the room.

Now, here, I can just start running my meeting, no problem,

but now I want to cast a video into that meeting. So let's

open up a separate tab – it's important that it is in a

separate tab, and let's search for that video. Now, let's

say that we want to cast this website with this video into

our Google Meet now. Well, once everything is activated,

we're going to open this tab and find the icon in the

top-right corner. I'm going to click on that and you will

see that one of the available devices is now that Google

Meet. That's because it's an ongoing meeting, and it was

scheduled using the Calendar. So go ahead and select that,

and you will see in the meeting, this is now being

presented. Now, as soon as I start playing this video

here, you're going to see that it also plays very smoothly

in that Google Meeting. That means we don't have to worry

about lag. We don't have to worry about poor audio or any

of the other issues you would see when you're simply

sharing your screen. So in order for you to use audio and

video in Google Meet, you're going to be screen casting

rather than screen sharing. So remember three steps.

The first step is to make sure that you have the Cast

icon enabled. The second step, enable your cloud services,

and the third step is to schedule your meetings using

Google Calendar. These three steps will enable you to use

audio and video in Google Meet.

I hope you found this helpful. If you did, dive into that

comment section below, and let me know how you are using

video in your lessons, what your preferred video platform

or format is, and how your students are responding to this.

Now, what else are you trying to do in Google Meet?

Let me know in the comment section below, and I will do my

best to make a video on that topic as well. Now, once you've

left your comments, scroll back up, make sure to hit

subscribe, bell notifications, so you can be notified

of future videos. In the meantime, thank you for watching,

and I'll see you in the next one.

Answering a question I often get in the comments: How do I share a video with Audio in Google Meet. In this video I go through the steps needed to enable this.

Step 1: Using Google Chrome browser, Enable the Google Cast button (0:53)

Step 2: Enable the Google Cloud services to allow apps to 'talk' to each other. (2:05)

Step 3: Schedule your Meeting via Classroom. (Add conferencing Call)

Finally: Cast the Tab with video and audio to your Active MEET (This is important. The Meet has to be active.

  1. I understand the need to "cast." It is the calendar part that is confusing and frustrating. My studetns log into our Google Meet sessions via a link on their Google Classroom page. The casting does not seem to work with the Google Classroom login link to Google Meet.

  2. Helpful video. However I landed here by accident. I am desparately trying to fix this issue: I am having trouble with a teacher who loses her audio output to other members as they join the meet. The other members just hear buzzing. It is a Windows10 computer.

  3. I guess Google is trying to utilize its other applications like Google Cast and Google calendar thru this method. I guess during the development, the developers just integrated their existing casting service to their newly developed app, that is, Google Meet. That way, they're giving more leads to 2 other apps while making their development easier. Yes, Zoom is way better in terms of screen sharing. That's given. I guess the developers sacrificed the 'user-friendliness' of GM over their ease of development.
