Make sure you are logged into the Zoom account that is set up for streaming. Anytime you'd like you can start your Zoom and then click the "More" button down in the lower right hand corner and then click on "Live on Customs Live Streaming Service":

Once it says you are streaming there is a 15-20 second delay between what happens within the Zoom and what shows up in Filo.

If someone is sharing their screen only one person's camera will show up at a time. If no one is sharing their screen anyone with a camera on will show up in the livestream.

If you have any questions about setting this up, or would like to do a walkthrough please let us know. Contact support@filo.co!
