I can repurpose Zoom videos?

Absolutely - one on one or multi-person Zomo videos you've already recorded are great content to leverage for future automated webinars. It may be video from a Zoom Live Webinar you've recently run. With eWebinar you can repurpose the video and make it engaging by adding interactions. With a few interactions across your video you can increase viewer retention many times over. For some videos we've seen retention rates jump fro 30% to 80%.

Connecting Zoom and eWebinar

Connecting the two platforms couldn't be simpler. From within eWebinar, select the Integrations menu under your profile picture on the upper-right corner. At the bottom fo the screen you will see a list of integration service cards. Click on Zoom and when it opens press Connect.

At this point Zoom will potentially ask you to sign in and then ask you to allow eWebinar access to your cloud video recordings. Click Authorize. That's it, you're done!

Using your Zoom videos

Start using your Zoom in cloud recordings either by creating a new webinar or going to an existing eWebinar, choosing the Interactions tab and clicking the Upload Video button. You will see this dialog asking you for the video:

Upload Video Dialog

Press on the Zoom button. It will load all your recent recordings. Click on one of the recordings and press Continue. Done! Your video will start uploading to the eWebinar platform and transcoding. When its done you'll be able to publish the eWebinar on a recurring schedule of your liking.

Uninstalling eWebinar from Zoom

Disconnecting the two services is simple:

  • Login to your Zoom Account and navigate to the Zoom App Marketplace
  • Click Manage > Installed Apps or search for the eWebinar app
  • Click the eWebinar app
  • Click Uninstall

That's it - you'll no longer be able to see or select Zoom videos when choose videos to upload for your eWebinars.
