This guide will demonstrate how to connect QLab to Zoom, so that collaborators in your meeting can hear audio and see video straight from QLab.
Zoom continually updates their software, so some features and controls in this guide may disappear or move in a future Zoom update. This guide uses the most up-to-date version of Zoom as of August 25, 2020. If something isn’t working quite right, please reach out to us for some help: firstname.lastname@example.org
You’ll need to set up everything in Zoom before launching QLab. You’ll also need to be sure that your meeting host has allowed participants to share their screens. It might be handy for them to allow multiple participants to share screens, although it’s not strictly necessary.
If you want to listen to something but not send it to Zoom do the following:
The following requires a second connected display for your Mac. An HDMI-capable TV would work, or a computer monitor.
This setup does not require a secondary display or any additional hardware for your Mac. It does require a free program that you will need to download and install on your Mac. It’s called Syphon Virtual Webcam, and you can click here to download it.
This is a bit quicker.
Once this is set up, you can add, delete, or edit cues in QLab without closing or rearranging anything. Each time you join a Zoom call, you’ll need to repeat the steps that you took within Zoom, but not the other steps. You’ll only need to repeat the setup steps in QLab when you create a new QLab workspace.
