Stream WebEx Meetings to Social Media

The COVID-19 pandemic made online meetings a must have tool for businesses worldwide. Using WebEx requires the download and installation of the WebEx 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.


WebEx just added the ability to send a RTMP stream out. The advantage of this feature are:


1. Ability to expand your WebEx audience to a much larger number of viewers.

2. Ability to add closed captioning to a WebEx meeting.


Grow the audience of WebEx meetings by publishing a meeting to Videolinq and using the Videolinq platform to live stream to add closed captioning to your WebEx meeting, and to distribute the broadcast to multiple social media platforms or 3rd party streaming services!
