You can use screen-sharing programs like Camtwist or Manycam. Once those programs are running, log into VOKLE, set up your event and click on any of those applications when you're choosing your video in your camera settings. Use the Hardware Wizard if your camera is having trouble connecting (click on the Setup button left of the liveplayer)

You can find the programs mentioned above here:


Manycam

Camtwist

Can two video sources be set up on same system, so that the desktop is like a cohost? Is there a way to have a PIP in addition to multishot. Would be nice for online classes, where slides, etc. are part of the group dynamic.

Greg, having picture in picture would be a feature that is most likely inside the desktop sharing program that you are using :)

I have Camtasia, but I do not understand how this allows me to share my screen. Any guidance on this?

My experience with Camtasia is just to record my screen, but this article seems to suggest that I could share my screen using camtasia.

I would very much like to be able to have a computer that is the video and a computer for the presentation, and then have the webinar showing both of those. And it seems I might be able to do this with Camtasia but I do not see how. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Adele,

After joining in your event, click on the "setup" button (under the "START EVENT" button, to the right of your video). Go to step three of the hardware wizard and click "select another video". If you have Camtasia open already you should see it as an option next to your webcam.
