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.
This feature is currently in internal testing. We will keep you updated as it gets closer to release. Thanks.

We can see video but not hear it. What the heck!?! What kind of functionality is that?
Yes, please! We have multiple buildings and when doing training the people remotely can't hear the audio of what we are playing.
Teams: when sharing a window, need AUDIO WITH the video! ZOOM does this (for free), Webex does this. Should be an easy fix. If a window or screen is selected for the group to view then they get the audio with the video on that window/screen.
Imagine Satya gives his quarterly earnings call and all anyone sees is slides, not audio. Would he find that to be an effect way to communicate?
Fix ASAP pls - huge whiff
This functionality would be great when trying to coordinate teams meetings and a video is helpful to illustrate a point or to inform users this is needed.

Our groups need this for improved communication and to focus on a single solution for remote meetings. Please add this feature ASAP..... Thanks
One of the most important aspects of group training. Our team is spread across multiple states and across country borders. Until this function is available, Zoom is our go-to online meeting platform. Would love to be able to use Teams exclusively.
We recently had to play parts of an Digital Rights Management (DRM) protected Office 365 Video in a meeting. Unable to use the PowerPoint work around because of DRM.

This is essential for us. We are a large organisation where we host meetings on a global basis. We just recently switched from Skype to Teams but now missing out the possibility to share sound when playing videos. In Skype, there where delays when playing content but we could live with that.

This would definitely put Teams up over Zoom in the opinion of some people in our organization

We are rolling out Microsoft teams here for a small trial, it would be great to see this feature added as it would certainly put Teams Video meetings above the rest. Everyone seems to have problems trying to share a video, in-context of a meeting so that everyone can watch simultaneously

This is a must, as there are several scenarios where it would be useful to be able to share audio from the host machine. Pre-recorded video introductions, demo presentations, YouTube videos and so on.
