    If I want to be in a Zoom call, and in that call show my students a video, what’s the best way to do that and make sure they get clear audio? Do I screen share and turn up my volume really high? Are there any alternatives?

    We had people do this during our PD days and the video was clear but the audio made it almost impossible to watch/hear.

    When you share your sceeen there should be two checkboxes one for optimizing for video and another for playing audio. Those have to be checked.

    Thanks, I’ve never seen those before, I’ll look for them. I’m using a Chromebook, which is not ideal, so some of the functions are not available.

    Make sure that you have permission to stream the video. Otherwise the legality gets pretty tricky.
