Need to present a video to a group of people online, but when you play it on your computer and share your desktop, it’s laggy and dropping frames for others in a Microsoft Teams meeting, or maybe it’s missing the audio track?

In this remote and hybrid working tip, Jeremy Chapman from the Microsoft 365 team at Microsoft will show you a simple trick that will avoid those issues using web streaming along with PowerPoint Live as part of a Microsoft Teams presentation, so everyone can watch your video without lag or missing audio.
