Playing Audio/Video on the Go

NOTE: The easiest way to bring media into your session is by preparing a button in your agenda ahead of time. Check out Create your own Agenda and Edit an agenda in the CirclesSpace™️ for more info. However, sometimes you need to quickly add in some work music or a birthday song.

Playing audio, like a song or a guided mediation, with your participants is very easy:

  1. Copy the URL of the YouTube video you want to listen to by clicking ‘Share‘ and copying the link.
  1. In the CircleSpace™️, open the Tools menu in the top right above the agenda and select ‘Play Video/Music..’ from the list
  1. In the panel that appears paste the link that you’ve copied from YouTube. You also have the option to:
    • Set a global volume for everyone in case the default is too high or too low
    • Add to Library – this keeps the track in your circle’s Quick Play library so you can easily access it in future
    • Play in the spotlight
    • Play as audio only
  1. Press the ‘Start Playing’ button to start your video or audio.

NOTE: You can control the video or audio from the media panel that appears under the agenda while it is playing.

Add an Audio or Music Button to Your Agenda

Music is a great way to connect people. Doing a guided breathing exercise can center us, while being together and a happy tune can accompany us while reading or brainstorming. Are you ready to add some music to your Circles sessions? Here is how you do it:

  1. Copy the URL of the YouTube video you want to show by clicking ‘Share’ underneath the video.

  1. Click ‘Copy’ next to the link.

  1. In your My.Circles agenda editing space, click the magic wand icon to display a list of possible button functions.

  1. Click ‘Choose song’.

  1. Here you will be prompted to:

a) Enter a title for the button. This will appear as the text within the button.
b) Enter a URL  (YouTube link): Enter the video URL that you copied earlier.

  1. Click ‘Save’. You’ll now see the button appear within your agenda space.

  1. Click ‘Save’ once you’re happy with the agenda page.

  1. To play the song in the Circles meeting space, click the button you just created. To pause the song, press the button again.

*NOTE* Add buttons like this to your agenda, while you are in the CircleSpace™️ the same way. Check out step 5 of this article.
