Embeddable Players

  • 1 for the ability to have embedded meetings.  We are planning a client portal and will have this feature as a requirement.  Hoping Zoom can make it happen!   

@randy - can you elaborate what you did exactly? 

I would like to echo this request. Embedding is coming (see for instance WebinarJam), and I would love for Zoom to be on the forefront of this. 

You can do this with the webinar feature

YouTube and Facebook are great options for extending the audience reach, but the drawback is that you don’t get the full tracking of attendees. Our organization issues CE credits for attendance, and it’s based on percentage watched; and this tracking is not available for those who watch on YouTube or Facebook. So our desire is to embed the webinar, yet keep the sign-in functionality so that engagement tracking remains in place. This feature is available on for example uStream (Enterprise plan), where the Registration/SignIn is available even in the embedded player, and thus tracking is also maintained no matter where the viewer consumes the content. 

You can embed those players into your website

Yes, we can embed the Facebook or YouTube players on our site, but unless our attendees log into the traditional Zoom URL, we cannot track their engagement. Ideally, you would also offer your own HTML5 version of a webinar that can be embedded on other site, and where such embed retains the ability for attendees to sign with with name/email so that full tracking is in place.

The viewers who watch a webinar via YouTube or Facebook embeds can only be tracked via the metrics provided by those two platforms. 

Joshua, that is a good suggestion. Thank you. Do you know if you can make those livestreams private on either YouTube or Facebook?

Not really. On YouTube we can make it “unlisted”, so that you cannot access the webinar unless you know the URL. However, tracking would need to be added on top of that somehow, as we otherwise would have to require users to have a YouTube account (and even then, YouTube does not track things like “attendee xx@yy.com watched 77%”). We have considered using this approach and adding a custom tracker (js using HTML5 video events), but would much rather use Zoom for that :slight_smile:

Hi Peter,

With the live streaming to facebook/youtube the intent is to share the broadcast with anonymous users (not able to participate in q&a or polls).

Otherwise, based on your last comments, what you are seeking is available with zoom webinar as is, not required to be embedded into a webpage. You can provide potential participants with a registration page, require that they register to attend the webinar, and get participation analytics you seek via https://zoom.github.io/api/#get-ended-webinar-attendees

There is still a disconnect in the ask. What we would like to see is the following: 

  1. A user goes to a webpage on our domain, say xyz.com/webinars
  2. On that page, there is an embedded Zoom player (not YouTube, not Facebook - Zoom HTML5(
  3. User clicks a Join Webinar button inside the embedded Zoom player
  4. User enters Name & Email
  5. User participates in the webinar directly on xyz.com/webinars, via the embed
  6. Chat should be available, but polls etc. not necessary
  7. After the webinar is over, the attendee metrics are the same if you watched it in the embed as they would have been if you had entered the full Zoom app, at least as far as attendance goes. 

Hopefully that clarifies matters

Is already possible use embedded player in browser to meeting?

Hi, me and my team is planning to make a web Application using zoom SDK. can we just do that white labeling the name of the zoom.

are there any updates on this? i would really like to use this feature before looking into another webinar company.

Hi, this is on our radar but we do not have a time frame yet - sorry.

 

Still requesting this feature, after originally desiring it and asking about it several years ago on a sales call. This is a huge value add and deeply needed by many of us using the platform.

We also really need this feature.  We want to offer this as an integration option for our platform.  We will drive more users to create zoom accounts…but we need a direct embed option.  How can we get this prioritized?

We tried using this:  https://github.com/zoom/sample-app-web

…but when we embed it into an iFrame, you cannot use the audio via the computer…only dial in.  Has anyone found a way around that? If not, its a non-starter solution.

So I need to test this, but it would seem that the host could use the client for the meeting, but embed the “view in browser” webpage in an iframe on another page for all attendees… I say this with a use case where I do not expect the attendees to be able to speak or use their computer audio. Will see if it works. But in general, an embed should be part of the solution.

Please be sure to make Zoom Oembed capable when creating the code for the iframe embed feature for websites. It works great through YouTube but as some have pointed out in this thread it would be even better for tracking traffic on our actual websites/pages.

This is an article about oembed and zoom and youtube: : https://youtube-eng.googleblog.com/2009/10/oembed-support_9.html

Hey everyone, here is how to embed the Zoom Web Client into an iFrame:
