The Video Direct feature streams a video directly from a video platform (such as YouTube) or from your device and network to the room's displays.
The video will only be played on the room's TV or Projector screen, freeing up your device for simultaneous use during play.
Copy a URL from YouTube (or the location of your desired video), return to the Vivi software and paste it into the blank field that says Paste video link here. When you press Play, the video will start playing on the room's TV or Projector screen.
Or, if wanting to play something from your device, select the folder icon, use the explorer to find the location of the file and select it. The video will then play automatically to the screen.
Once the video is playing, you can use the Pause and Stop features on Vivi, from your own device, to control video play. If the video supports it, you can Enable Subtitles by clicking the subtitles tick box.
You can control the video from any device you have connected to the room, provided you are logged in with the same account. For example, if you start video play from your laptop at the front of the room, you can pause it from your tablet, from the back of the room.
You can also use Video direct to play music, either place a URL of the song into the blank field or browse it locally from your device and Vivi will then send it across. A visualizer will then appear as the music plays.
