What content can I share in an Adobe Connect web conference?

Hosts and presenters (and participants who have been given rights) use the Share pod to display content to attendees.

Content you can share:

  • Selected items on your computer screen, including one or more windows, one or more open applications, or the entire desktop. See Share your screen.

  • A document, such as a presentation, Adobe PDF file, FLV file, a JPEG, or other file format. See Share a document or PDF.

  • A whiteboard with various writing and drawing tools. You can share a stand-alone whiteboard, or a whiteboard overlay that appears on top of other shared content. See Share a whiteboard.

Except for PDF files, attendees can view all documents shared in the Share pod but cannot download them. To enable attendees to download non-PDF documents, a host or presenter must instead use the File Share pod.

Installing the Adobe Connect Add-in

Presenters and hosts must install the Adobe Connect add‑in the first time they attempt to upload content or share a screen. The add‑in is a special version of Flash Player with additional features for hosts and presenters. The add‑in provides support for uploading PPTX files to the server and sharing screens during a meeting. You can install the latest add-in (and other updates) from the Downloads and Updates page.

Note: Installing the add-in is not necessary to upload files of all the supported types, except PPTX files. Former can be uploaded from the browser too.
