Broadcast with Video

Brother Jeffrey Nye, Wolf Creek Ward did the normal Sacrament Meeting broadcast and showed a video in the chapel and on the broadcast. Here is how he did it.

November 29, 2020

Just to follow up with you as to how we provided the Primary Program Video via Zoom and in the chapel -

We used two laptops

Laptop #1

Connected to USB Zoom video camera feed

Connected to RCA (Audio) input in the chapel via the USB connection

Standard Zoom/Church’s feed through zoom using the weekly codes

Laptop #2

Connected to LCD projector via HDMI

Connected to chapel audio using the crab box and the laptop speaker output

We used laptop #1 to provide the feed to all attending at home. Once we were ready to start the video portion, laptop #1 shared it’s screen (and selected share computer video and audio)

Sharing Screen and Audio

  1. Click the Share Screen button in the toolbar.

  2. Check the box to Share computer sound at the bottom of the Share Screen pop-up window. ...

  3. on the same ... on zoom select "hide video" so the broadcast does not see your zoom window on screen.

  4. Make sure your volume is an appropriate level.

  5. If you are trying to share a video (such as YouTube), make sure the screen is visible to participants

Laptop #1 - disconnected the laptop to chapel audio feed (via the 3.5mm RCA connection) by simply unplugging the RCA connection in the USB audio adapter). We also started the screen share slightly ahead of laptop #2

Laptop #2 – Played the video through the LCD projector (HDMI) to the screen on the stand and the audio was fed into the chapel’s mic input using the crab box connected to the laptop RCA/speaker output.

With the 10-20 second time difference between laptop #1 and Laptop #2, it allowed us to set laptop #1 back up for the audio and video inputs for the rest of the meeting prior to the video ending on Laptop #2 in the chapel. Each laptop had a separate copy of the video on the desktop, making it easy for the video’s to be started as needed.

I hope this is helpful and thank you for offering to put it up on the Stake’s website,

Bro. Nye
