Videos are a great way to inspire, inform or simply entertain your participants. Whatever you're looking to do, we've made it super easy by having YouTube integrated directly inside Butter!

🎥 Video explainer: Butter Video Tool

Here’s a 60-second tour of how to play YouTube videos in Butter.

1. Preparing Video before session

You can prepare all the videos you want to launch before the session in the Room Setup menu. Go to the Toolbox tab, select Add Tool, select Video, and then paste a link from either YouTube, Vimeo or an MP4 hosting service.

You’re now able to launch a video directly from the Toolbox during the session.

2. Launching Video during the session

When you’re in the session, you can launch the video directly from the Toolbox. Click the Toolbox icon on the right hand side, and select the video that you’ve saved in your Toolbox

You can also add a video during the session. Just click New Tool instead and follow the same procedure as mentioned above.

Are videos synchronized for all participants?

Yes, the facilitator has the ability to control where everyone should be watching. This is great when you only want to show a few minutes from a longer video or just make sure that everyone is getting the same information!

Only the facilitator can pause the video.

More integrations

YouTube is just one of the many Butter integrations. Here’s an overview of all them:
