All audio/video functionality in Meetecho is WebRTC based, which means that, while we provide a few alternatives (check the Non-Interactive Links here), you'll need a WebRTC compliant web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Opera; Edge currently NOT supported) if you want to participate effectively. That said, a compliant browser is sometimes not enough, as your network may employ filters or firewalls that may affect a successful WebRTC connectivity.
In order to check whether or not you'll be able to make use of WebRTC for the purpose, we prepared a simple self-test web application that you can find here:
Selt-test web application
If the link above does not appear to bring you anywhere, the self-test application is not yet available. It is usually made available on the Saturday before the meeting.
This test will attempt to start an echo test that will try and capture your audio and video, and bounce them back to you: if you can see yourself in both boxes and hear you back, it means that everything's fine. If not, please let us know in advance, as fixing things during the session could disrupt the natural flow of the meeting.
IMPORTANT: In case you've scheduled a remote presentation, please try this from where you'll actually make your presentation, and NOT from somewhere else: e.g., if you're going to present from the office, don't test at home, as network constraints will likely be different.
Please also remember to wear a headset
, both during this test and when presenting, to make sure there won't be any noise or echo in case you have to present remotely or stream your audio in a virtual queue
session. Besides, it will make the test much easier as you'll be immediately aware of the remote audio.
In case the test is successful, you'll be able to see yourself in both video boxes, and listen to your own audio as well.
