Zoom Live Streaming

Zoom Live Streaming

Zoom allows for the ability to live stream Zoom meetings or webinars.
This creates a stream from the Zoom meeting or webinar to the external streaming service.
Zoom meetings are limited to 300 participants, and Zoom Webinars are typically limited to 1,000 participants. There are several options for live streaming from a Zoom meeting or webinar: Facebook, YouTube and now Twitch. These services can provide the host additional resources to allow for more participants to view the Zoom meeting or webinar over the live stream.

Note: Participants that are joining the live stream of Zoom Meetings will be receiving the audio and video (and content if present) and not be able to participate in the Zoom meeting.
