Schmidt Library: Multimedia

Streaming Video Notice

While streaming through the "screen-capture" functionality in Zoom or other video-conferencing platforms may seem like an adequate replacement for in-classroom screenings of video materials, this method is not recommended by the Library and will likely result in poor audio and video quality for students viewing the material.

Additionally, some streaming platforms apply copyright protection and encryption to their content which disables any images or sound being shared between screens.

For "in-classroom screenings" conducted via Zoom or other video-conferencing platforms, the recommended procedure is to direct students to view materials on their own, in a separate window and with their Zoom audio muted, and then return to the main meeting for discussion, analysis, etc.

   Personal streaming vendors such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu do not grant rights for institutional or educational use. That means faculty may not show videos from these services in class. This is why the Library offers streaming videos through institutional subscription vendors like Academic Video Online. Netflix makes an exception for a small number of Original documentaries, which do grant permission for one-time educational screenings. Go to to find out which titles are available for educational use. You must have a personal Netflix account in order to show these titles. Always double check the details page for each title before showing in the classroom to ensure that the Grant of Permission is still applicable.
