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 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 evaluate capture devices (volume levels, webcam availability), connectivity (in general and in terms of statistics, loss, etc.), and quality of experience (recording a message that can then be replayed and evaluated by the user without worrying about echo cancellation), all taking into account concurrent streams that are usually involved in a Meetecho session.
You can choose to save a report of the test results, and make it available to both yourself and us for ex post analysis and troubleshooting.
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
