Screen sharing in Demio is simple, and anyone who has Presenter controls (Hosts/Presenters) can share their screen.


If you plan on using screen sharing to share presentation slides, we highly suggest uploading them as to Demio as a Material.

We also recommend downgrading the screen resolution to 720p to achieve the best possible streaming quality. (Steps for Windows and for MacOS).

Starting a Screen Share

From your webinar room, you'll want to click on View Sharing Options in the bottom.

You'll see the Admin Backstage Panel appear with a few sharing options, including the ability to Share Your Screen.

Sharing your Screen

You'll want to select Share Your Screen from your Sharing Options.

Depending on the browser you're using, you'll be prompted with a pop-up modal that allows you to select exactly which screen, window or tab you'd like to share.

With Chrome, you'll have the option to share a tab. With other browsers, you will need to choose between Your Entire Screens or Application.

Note: If you share your entire screen, your Attendees will be able to see whatever you can see, including the Demio application.

Once you start sharing a window or screen, you'll see it being broadcasted in the viewer area. In your view, there will be a dark overlay and a message to let you know that your screen is being shared.

Swapping Screens

You can also switch between which window was being shared.

While sharing your screen, you'll see a Change Window option that'll re-prompt you with the screen selection window.

You will be able to select another application window or screen that will automatically stop the shared screen and start sharing the newly selected choice.

Stopping a Screen Share

To stop sharing your screen, simply click the same Stop Sharing option that appears in the video control panel:

Or you can use the bar that shows at the top (for tab sharing):

Or the button at the bottom (for full screen sharing) :

Enabling permissions on MacOS:

If you're running on Mac OS v.10 or higher, you'd need to allow the browser you use to access to screen share.
From System Preferences > Security&Privacy > Screen Recording make sure that the box next to the browser is checked:
