Zoom: Multiple cameras


During a Zoom meeting, you may want to use a second camera. This will allow you to remain on-camera while showing something relevant to what you're discussing, such an artifact or lab demo. Some classrooms also have multiple cameras, one which you might want to designate as the primary feed and the other as the secondary feed.

Use a second camera on Zoom

  1. Connect the external camera to your computer.
  2. Log into your Zoom meeting, and click the Screen Share button.
  3. Click the Advanced tab.
  4. Choose Content from 2nd Camera.
  5. Click Share.
  6. Zoom will automatically place the shared camera in full-screen mode. Click Switch Camera in the top left to switch to your other video.

Note: If your camera Is not listed as an option, try Zoom's recommended troubleshooting tips.
