Share Video in a Webex Meeting


Optimizing for motion and video requires Cisco Webex video platform version 2.0. To find out which version you’re using, see Find Your Cisco Webex Meetings Version Number. The feature also requires that your site settings permit joining meetings from video systems. If you don't see the optimization menu, contact your system administrator.
