Does stream have the ability for a group to have a "watch party" like Netflix?

 

My company is hosting a training session that they're recording. Unfortunately my entire team will be unavailable at that time due to other training conflicts. I would like the ability to invite my team to a "watch party", where I can start the video and everyone is watching it at the same time. If I pause the video to discuss something, it pauses for everyone. Does that make sense? 

 

The only way I thought I could do it, would be to host a live event where I play the video, but I'm not sure how well playing a recorded video through a live event would work. Would it be choppy? Just curious if anyone else has tried to accomplish this same thing or not.

 

Thanks.
