Tutorial #37 - How to attach a video to your presentations

If you are the owner of a Tacticsboard or are an author of a Tacticsboard and the Tacticsboard owner has a club license then you can attach videos from YouTube to your presentations.

Having the ability to attach videos to your presentations for your Tacticsboard users has many benefits when you want to show a video sequence to demonstrate the message you are trying to get across, or show the topic of a discussion you are having on your Tacticsboard.

You can also import the frames of the video directly into your Tacticsboard so when you have live discussions, everyone can see the same frame you are talking about.

To access the coach locker, click the coach locker button below



You should now see the coach locker window appear (as below)



Note: The Tacticsboard owner must own a club license for you to see the video and audio features.

Attaching a YouTube video to your presentation
Click the Video Clip button to bring up the video feature (as below)



How to get the video ID,
When you view a YouTube video, you will see a link similar to the one below in your address bar of the browser.

Quote::
www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZkR5Wb2KQs&feature=player_embedded

The video id is the text that appears after the v=, and before the &.

So in our example, the video id we are using is NZkR5Wb2KQs.

Simply Paste in the video ID of the YouTube video into the YouTube video id box. Doing so should bring up the video in the display box (as below)



You can now close the coach locker.

You and your viewers will now see a video icon appear on your Tacticsboard indicating that there is a video attached to the presentation (as below)



If you click the icon above, then the window below will appear showing your attached video which your viewers can play.



You can change the video id any time you wish.
