ZOOM Integration

  • 1.  ZOOM Integration

    Hello;  Looking for feedback from other event planners that have used the ZOOM Integration with CVent Platform for uploading pre recorded videos of sessions speakers presentations.   How did you avoid the buffering or lag time?

    Is your whole event pre-recorded or will part of it be live as well? You can have your video downloaded to your device to eliminate lag timing possibly, rather than streaming it.

    Hi Susan, 

    We are asking all of our live presenters to be hard wired into their internet, instead of relying on WiFi. We have also included a similar recommendation in our FAQ's/Trouble Shooting for our attendees to do the same where possible and also making suggestions like ensuring they limit the amount of devices connected to the wifi during the conference, avoiding downloading large files whilst streaming and all those general tips for keeping wifi running as smoothly as possible. Unfortunately, it's not perfect but we are hopeful that we don't have issues once we officially go live in two weeks!

    Hi Susan,
    Is the buffering due to where you are hosting your video? Perhaps try some different host options to see if that alleviates the buffering. We do have the Zoom integration, but other than if you are hosting on the Zoom platform, I don't think this issue would have anything to do with the Zoom/Cvent integration and is more a bandwidth issue.
