When it comes to choosing a video conferencing software, there’s really only two choices for most people: Zoom and StreamYard.
Both platforms have taken off during COVID-19, but if you’re looking for an easy way to combine the best features of both platforms, then it’s important to know how they work together.
In this article, we’ll look at some of the key features of each platform and how well they work together.
Here’s How Well StreamYard & Zoom Work Together:
You can use StreamYard with Zoom. StreamYard and Zoom greatly combine tools if you’re trying to stream your live events. Zoom is great for scheduling and monitoring, as well as sharing videos from your event after it’s over. StreamYard offers an easy way to create a streaming schedule.
It also provides you with some basic analytics so that you can see how many people are watching your stream at any given time, which helps with planning future events or making changes based on audience feedback.
Do StreamYard Work with Zoom Right Out of the Box?
StreamYard is a cloud-based streaming service that works with Zoom (and lots of other platforms), while Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing and webinar software that you can use on its own, but also with StreamYard.
If you want to join meetings at your office or other locations, then you’ll need both services.
If you’re looking for the best option, we recommend using both services together:
- Use Zoom for video conferencing at your locations.
- Use StreamYard for recording audio and/or video from remote locations.
Can Non-Techies Figure Out How to Use StreamYard with Zoom?
If you are non-technical, but want to use an online meeting tool, then both StreamYard and Zoom are a great fit.
Both have their own strengths and weaknesses, but no matter which one you choose, the process of getting started and using them will be painless. You don’t need to be tech savvy or even have formal training in order to use either of these tools.
The first thing you’ll do when setting up an account for either service is provide your email address, which then creates an account for you automatically once that email address has been verified by its owner (the email provider).
This is all done through an easy web form that anyone can fill out without any problems whatsoever!

What Are the Typical Issues People Face?
- Difficulty setting up the camera: If you’re using one of those old-school cameras, then chances are you’ve run into some issues. Just like the camera itself, streaming software can have its own set of quirks and bugs. For example, Twitch has a known issue where users can’t log in because their accounts have been reported as compromised. To fix this issue, simply click on “Reset Password.”
- Difficulty setting up Zoom: There is no shortage of video chat platforms available online today—but only one truly stands out from all others: Zoom. With Zoom’s simple interface and reliable service, your online meetings will be smooth sailing from start to finish—and that includes having an easy time with setup.
- Difficulty setting up StreamYard: Setting up StreamYard isn’t hard at all if you follow these steps carefully (and don’t miss any!). Here’s how we do it step-by-step: First off go ahead and install the program onto your computer or laptop by clicking “Get It Now” button above; Next create user account by going through registration process (you will need email address); After creating user account go ahead now enter credentials provided during registration process into login field; Finally after entering credentials hit Login button located right above login field and enjoy using new application.
How Well Do They Work Together?
Both StreamYard and Zoom are great tools that can help you share your content with a wide audience. However, they each have their own limitations.
StreamYard is built for presenting live content, so it doesn’t have the same level of customization as Zoom.
The basic features in StreamYard may not be enough to meet all your needs, but they do make it easy to broadcast a presentation without any technical knowledge required.
On the other hand, Zoom has many advanced features that let you customize your meeting room experience however you want—including adding files from cloud storage services such as Dropbox or Google Drive so people can collaborate on documents together during meetings.
Scheduling and Monitoring
In the scheduling and monitoring section, we’ll go over how Zoom and StreamYard work together to help you create a calendar of events that can be remotely accessed by your audience.
Zoom has been built with the idea of “everyone has a screen,” which means that everyone can access it at any time. That’s why they also provide a calendar view so you can see all your upcoming events in one place, no matter where they are being held.
This makes it easy for you to keep track of everything on your calendar without having to switch between apps or tabs all day long.
StreamYard has an event manager built into their software so that if you’re using multiple platforms, like Zoom or YouTube Live, then StreamYard will automatically sync them up so there aren’t any mistakes made when setting up future events (or rescheduling ones that have already happened).
It also provides live streams from different cameras throughout the set-up process until everything is ready for real broadcasting later down the road; this means less time spent editing footage later on because everything was recorded beforehand as well!
Features for Videos
Video conferencing, live streaming and recording, video chat and messaging are all standard features in both StreamYard and Zoom. However, the two services also have a few extras that set them apart from one another.
Zoom has a built-in screen sharing feature that allows you to share your screen with up to 15 people at once in real time.
On top of this, you can even record meetings so that you can review them later on or share recordings with other members of your team (up to 100). This can be especially useful if someone missed an important meeting due to illness or travel arrangements—you won’t miss anything if it was recorded!
StreamYard offers similar functionality but with limitations: it only allows for viewing of up to five screens simultaneously (not counting yours) and doesn’t allow recording capabilities.
In StreamYard, you can share videos in various ways. You can:
- Share with other users via a private message.
- Publicly share the details of your video by posting a link to it on social media or emailing it to people.
- Privately share videos with specific users either within StreamYard or via email (this feature is only available if your account is connected to Zoom).
- If you want to invite others into a particular Zoom room while also sharing their video feed in StreamYard, use this link: https://zoom.us/j/[your_zoom_room_id]. Or click the share icon and copy the link that they will provide.
In this article, I’ve given you the lay of the land so you can quickly understand how well StreamYard and Zoom work together.
They are both great programs that work well together and complement each other.
