Stream Zoom Meetings to Social Media

Zoom is the leader in modern enterprise video communications, with an easy, reliable cloud platform for video and audio conferencing, collaboration, chat, and webinars across mobile devices, desktops, telephones, and room systems. Zoom Rooms is the original software-based conference room solution used around the world in board, conference, huddle, and training rooms, as well as executive offices and classrooms.

The COVID-19 pandemic made Zoom so popular that people refer to online conferencing today as a "Zoom meeting". Using Zoom requires the download and installation of the Zoom application on a computer or mobile device. The application helps participants see or listen to each other in real time. This is a typical "online conference meetings". Other scenarios require a small group or "presenters" to be able to communicate, when many other viewers are passively watching them. Looking to produce this kind of large broadcast and stream the "online meeting" to large audience on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and perhaps on your own website? Videolinq can help. Read further.

Zoom added recently the ability to publish a Zoom meeting to Facebook and Youtube (one at a time), or to a RTMP streaming service. When you use your Videolinq account you can publish a Zoom meeting to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Vimeo, or to any streaming video provider at the same time!.
