Amazon Chime does not natively offer the ability to stream a video from your computer using screen share.

Windows options:

  • Enable stereo mix
    • Open Sound Settings.
    • Under the Input section, click Manage sound devices.
    • At the bottom of the window, click Stereo Mix, then Enable.
  • Have audio play through laptop speakers
    • Open Sound Settings.
    • Under the Advanced sound options section, click App volume and device preferences.
    • At the top of the windows, under the Output dropdown, select your device built in speakers (e.g. "Speakers (Conexant)" or "Speakers (Realtek audio)").
    • Make sure the app you want to play audio through is visible in this window. If it isn't, open the application and try playing audio. Then, reopen the App volume and device preferences window.
  • Play audio during Amazon Chime meeting
    • You'll control when audio clips are heard during an Amazon Chime meeting through the selected microphone.
    • When you need to speak during a meeting, make sure your microphone is selected. Do so by clicking the ^ icon next to the microphone at the bottom of the Amazon Chime window.
    • When you need to play an audio clip, click the ^ icon next to the microphone at the bottom of the Amazon Chime window, then select Stereo Mix from the available microphones.
    • When Stereo Mix is selected, audio clips will be heard by all meeting attendees, but your microphone will not work. To re-activate your microphone, you'll need to reselect it using the appropriate steps above.

There are some software tools available that let you stream video content and audio to Amazon Chime.
