Share video and audio during meetings
During meetings we need to be able to share an online video with team members. Videos could be in Stream or Youtube or Vimeo or others. And this includes sharing the video sound. Currently we use normal Teams screen sharing, but all team members on the call can either hear or see, the video/audio are always asynchronous.
We are happy to announce this feature is released on Windows. We are working on support for Mac and will update as we have more details.
Please refer to this page for more info on this feature: https://support.office.com/article/share-system-audio-in-a-teams-meeting-dddede9f-e3d0-4330-873a-fa061a0d8e3b.
We are a music production team considering incorporating Teams into our collaboration. I am unable to find any information on whether MS Teams can deliver stereo audio. We need raw stereo for it to be functional and so far we have found only Zoom delivers that. The knowledge base delivers a million responses to Stereo but after reviewing several pages of unrelated audio conversation I give up. Does anyone know if I can get Teams to share in Stereo ?
IT - "Yeah the Teams rooms system is soooo easy just plug in the HDMI cable and go."
User - "I showed a YouTube video of my work to my colleagues and there was no audio."
IT - "Are you sure? etc etc" *goes onto uservoice to check for bugs*
> Teams devices allow you to share content using cables connected to the room console. Unfortunately, we do not yet support sharing system audio this way.
When will this be possible on surface hubs and live events?
Hi, I updated my local Teams version, shared desktop and participant could not hear youtube audio. is there something else to change on the tenant?

why is in only in meetings, we were waiting for it in Live events where showing recorded content is essential. How can you have very advanced features, and miss a lot of basics !!
not sure if we can continue to wait with no committed time frame

Any news on adding the audio to video presentation. Very important to have it....
Could you keep me updated as well. Very keen on this feature as we use teams to offer online English lessons. Let me know if you have a beta version. As mentioned the system audio feature is not working.
I still cannot play an embedded video in powerpoint :(

I'd like to be able to use include system audio for videos and audio in meetings on Surface Hub and Mac like you can in Windows.

I created a live Broadcast to see if I could get audio to Attendees. The Attendees we're able to see the video, but know audio was present. Is Teams able to have audio with the video in the live broadcast? If so, how does that get setup? Appreciate any feedback or input you have on this.

Just early this month (AUGUST), I was able to broadcast my video presentation as a presenter with no problems.
But 2 weeks after my presentation, the audio of my video presentation suddenly stopped working.
I hope this get's resolved the soonest as I will have another town hall meeting in SEPT which I really loved the way I was able to present last time. Thank you.
I am still not able to share audio with video. Does anyone have an idea?
looks likes its being rolled out already,

Has there been any further progress with this feature? It really is essential to be able to share video sound in Teams. An update would be greatly appreciated.

This is a necessary function for the monthly update presentations.
While this feature is being tested, if you need to show a video clip in a TEAMS or TEAMS Live Event, here is what I do:
I have a Black Magic Web presenter that I use regularly to incorporate the feeds from an A/V panel and a HD camera into TEAMS and Webex meetings. The web presenter treats the feed as a USB source replacing the webcam and USB headset. It also synchs the audio up with the video playback eliminating the latency issue.
I take an HDMI out from a second laptop into my presenter laptop via the web presenter. I play the video clip back (sometimes the second laptop is a Mac playing back sing Playback Pro, sometimes it is a PC playing back using Windows Media app)
Using this method avoids problems with low bandwidth attendees joining from home over home wi-fi (with a VPN running) because the size of the playback screen can be controlled to some degree by the attendee. It works, but the web presenter is not especially cheap.
