Share movie and screen simultaneously

Hi all,

I am trying to play an audio file (mp3 converted to mp4 so it can be shared as a video) and share a powerpoint document simultaneously. Does anyone know A) if this is possible and B) If not, is there a workaround?

I was thinking about using something like Soundflower to route audio from the computer into Bluejeans along with the mic but am hoping there is a way within BlueJeans to do this.

Thanks!

Hi Team,

I checked with our audio engineers and there is nothing currently in the works around your idea. They also mentioned trying software like http://manycam.com/ to play audio into your camera source while sharing your document.  On a side note we do have requests in to our product team to support sound file uploads into our video share capability.

Stay Tuned

Any time estimate when audio uploads will be allowed?

Hello,

You can  try using VAC (Virtual Audio Cable) software on Windows {similar to Soundflower for mac}
and you can achieve what you want ie share Video and present content on same call.
Currently doing both the task with help of BJN isnt possible.
Let me know if you need help with VAC.

Regards

Hi,

Thanks for the reply's guys.

I have it working with Soundflower on a mac. But no luck with VAC because I ran out of time to set it up and my PC internal audio skills are sub par. End result, the quality was not good, computer audio cut out during the call several times and I had to revert to good old fashioned holding a speaker with audio file playing up to mic. This could have been due to something on my end (although I don't think it was) but was frustrating nonetheless. So yes, please do add this to your feature set asap :-)

Have a nice day!

Thanks for posting your results! We will share this with the product team to hopefully support that set up. I'll have @Vikram weigh in if he has any other recommendations specific to the VAC set up.
