You can not not share a You Tube inside an Adobe Connect meeting room and have consistently, reliable results.
Two options are:
- You can use the Web Links pod to force attendees’ browsers to open a designated URL.

- You will need to convert the YouTube to an MP4, then upload the MP4 file to a Share pod and play the file.
To successfully convert a YouTube video and a MP4 so that it can be played AND recorded inside an Adobe Connect Meeting Room, go to youtubedownloader.com, Install the Free YouTube Downloader program.
- Enter the YouTube URL or selected file, and select Output format: No Conversion (MP4)
- Click Download
- Go to Adobe Connect Meeting Room
- Open Share Pod
- Browse for File, Upload and Done!
