Will Webcam image be out of sync with audio from another computer?


Hi.  Thanks for taking my question. 


Can I use a movable webcam (no audio) attached to the host computer that is showing the speaker during their slideshow presentation and then use the speaker's computer slideshow and microphone during a share?  Both computers are in the same room and I can not attach the webcam to their computer.  


Will the webcam image be out of sync with the audio for remote attendees?


Thanks for you help.

Hey, @Italiangen2022 –


Whenever the audio and video are coming from different source/computer, there is potential for sync mismatch. If both computers are connected to the same network via wired connections, I think any sync issues will be small and likely not noticed by most viewers. (Sometimes you’ll get out of sync when both audio and video are coming from the same computer – as the Zoom app tries to balance and prioritize limited bandwidth.)  Noticeable issues are more likely if the source audio and video are injected into Zoom from computers on different networks, especially far apart. 


 Your best bet is to test it and see what happens.
