Why can't I stream a video from Kanopy to my class over Zoom?


The library's streaming film database, Kanopy, requires users to authenticate by logging in to Kanopy through the library in order to stream a video. 

When you share your screen in Zoom to share a video with your class, you are the only person who has been authenticated by Kanopy, so everyone else only sees a blank screen instead of the film.

Instead of sharing your screen through Zoom, you can send out a link to the video you would like everyone to watch and ask them to watch on their own.  Then everyone can meet over zoom after watching to discuss.
