Using the WebRTC Client

Application Areas

The WebRTC client is broken up into several functional areas. The look mimics that of the desktop client. 

At the top of the application is an auto-hiding bar that appears on mouse-over which contains application controls for the camera, microphone, etc. Below the application controls lies the video tile and chat areas. Below the chat area is the chat input. To the right of the chat message area is the camera Self View.

Application Controls

The Application Controls allow the user to enable and disable different components.

From left to right the buttons are: Camera Enable, Microphone Enable, Speaker (sound) Enable, Desktop Sharing, Show / Hide Chat, Show / Hide Self View, and Exit Room beside the application logo.

A red slash through any control will indicate that that feature is disabled.

Desk Share

Desk Share works in Chrome only. If you have not previously installed the desktop streamer Chrome Plugin then you will be prompted to do so. After installing the plugin, Chrome will need to restart.

If you have previously installed the plugin you’ll be prompted to share one of your screens or share a particular application. Click on the ‘Your Entire Screen’ or ‘Application Window’ buttons at the top of the ‘Share Your Screen’ dialog box.

When a desktop is being shared into a meeting, the participant videos will be displayed on the right and the last person to share their desktop will have their desktop displayed in the large video window.
