Due to some recent updates, any Chrome based browser (Brave and Microsoft Edge) now give you the ability to share audio within the browser during an event. When sharing a Chrome based tab or entire screen, you can tick a "share audio" button and your attendees will hear the sound from any pre-recorded video hosted on any site. You also have the option to share an mp3 or mp4 from your own computer.

Here are a few other ways to share a pre-recorded video or music through the browser

Virtualize your webcam using third party software:

By virtualizing your webcam you are selecting the third party software as a source for your webcam from within Crowdcast. Then all of the screen sharing happens from within that software.
