How to Share Screen in Live Meeting for Free

As we all know, real demonstration speaks louder than specified instruction in words, which also applies to an online meeting for attendees from different places. Hence, EZTalks provides you with 3 modes of free online meeting screen sharing.

First of all, login EZTalks with your account and click “Start Meeting” on the main interface to proceed to the interface of virtual meeting room. Then click “Share Screen” and a window would pop up asking you to choose a mode to share screen.

Mode 1: Share Your Whole Desktop

Click “Share Desktop” to start desktop screen sharing and attendees can see everything on your desktop.

Mode 2: Share the Window of Selected Application

Click “Share Application” and select an application you’re running in the drop-down menu, then attendees can see just selected application instead of everything on your desktop screen.

Mode 3: Share the Window of Selected Area

Click “Share Area” and attendees can see a rectangle-size screen on your desktop screen. You can drag or alter the rectangle to share your desired area with attendees.

Note. Whichever mode you choose, there’ll be a screen share toolbar in the top as the picture below.

① Click “Stop” to stop webinar screen sharing.

② Click “Pause” to pause sharing screen and click “Start” to restart screen sharing conference.

③ Click “Share Screen” to freely switch screen sharing mode mentioned above.

④ Click “Control by” and select attendees in the drop-down menu to request/share control in live meeting.

⑤ Click “Annotate” and a list of drawing tools would pop up allowing you to make annotation on the desktop screen/application/selected screen you’re sharing. Click “unannotate” to stop annotating.

⑥ Click “Chat” to open chat window and a second click on it would make the window disappear.

I ve already showed you the basics of green screen videography with pre-recorded footage in iMovie or Premiere How to Do Green Screen Video in iMovie and Adobe Premiere How to Do Green Screen Video in iMovie and Adobe Premiere Technically known as chroma-keying, green screening is the process of masking a video using color – removing specific parts so you can overlay one video on top of another. An obvious example is the weather. Read More. so you could superimpose yourself onto any video or background. Wouldn t it be cool if we could use this green screen effect for a live broadcast like on Google Hangouts, or Skype?

Yes indeed it would be, James is the answer you re looking for there, and you re in luck because I ve been having a go at doing that very same thing. Read on to join the cool kids club as we play with live green screen broadcasting on Mac or Windows.

Like many times before, Google has turned a good idea into something incredibly useful, while preserving simplicity and ease of use and thus making it fantastic. In this. Read More ; read those, then come back and wow them all with your green screen skills.

Mac OS X: CamTwist (Free)

CamTwist is remarkably useful considering it s completely free. Unfortunately, it s also about non-user-friendly as they come. Upon first launching the app, you ll be greeted with this interface, which is only slightly less intimidating than a spreadsheet from the 80s.

First, hit CMD-P to open up the preview window.

The premise of CamTwist is that you add input sources, and effects, and end up with a composite video you can then feed into other applications a DIY webcam, if you like.

Double-click on a video source your webcam would be an easy place to start at then double-click some effects to add them. Effects stack, though your results will vary of course depending on what you choose. I quite like this dot screen and earthquake effect.

Now, onto our green screen. For this we ll need a background source your desktop is probably the easiest for testing, but you could also use a pre-recorded video source (I could only get .MOV formats to work). another webcam, or just a slideshow of images. Double click to add your chosen source to the scene.

Next, highlight Webcam and select the PIP (picture in picture) button from the bottom of the list. This will overlay your webcam onto the scene. To setup the Chroma-key, select the PIP Webcam from the Step 3 column to open the settings screen.

Check the box next to Chroma key, and choose the colour. The easiest way to find the colour is using the magnifying glass in the top left of the colour popup. Adjust the threshold to tweak results as you can see above, mine turned out pretty badly thanks to poor (uneven) lighting.

One caveat here: CamTwist won t work with 64-bit applications, which the latest Flash player and most web browsers are so if you re unable to find the virtual CamTwist video source in Hangouts or otherwise, you ll be stumbling up against this issue. To get around this, you should try running the app in 32-bit mode by right clicking on the application and checking the relevant box. If that doesn t work, the CamTwist developers suggest installing an older version of Flash also 10.3 should be fine which also still runs in 32-bit.

Hopefully someone will deal with this 64-bit incompatibility at some point.

Windows: SparkoCam ($20)

I can t find a free solution do to this on Windows, but SparkoCam is the cheapest and also lets you use a DSLR camera as a live video input source, which is fantastic and will give you far better quality than a webcam this alone makes it worth the price, I think.

Start by selecting your video source on the initial screen. To use a DSLR, plug in the supplied USB cable and switch the camera to video mode. You might want to disable auto-focus, or you ll end up with annoying scratching sounds as its tries to focus every 3 seconds.

To add the green screen, move over to the Effects tab (next one along). Select a background first or you won t know when it s working. By clicking on Detect the app was able to automatically add the right colour, and the quality of the screening was actually real good no tweaking necessary this time. Unfortunately, it s slightly limited in that you can only use a static background image you can t broadcast your desktop, or overlay on top of another video.

The Bottom Line

Green screen video is just great fun, live or pre-recorded. It can be a bit fiddly getting drivers to work correctly for CamTwist, especially considering that running an older version of Flash can be a serious security risk, but with enough tweaking you should get there in the end and the forums are full of users ready to help.
