# Verified Browser

  • Google Chrome latest stable version (v81 or higher)
  • Firefox latest stable version (v75 or higher)
  • Safari latest stable version (v13 or higher)
  • Microsoft Edge latest stable version ( Chromium version v79 or higher)

Android Chrome and Mobile Safari (iOS, iPadOS) can also be used, but the screen is not optimized for mobile devices and may be difficult to use.

# What you need to use

# Speaker Microphone.

It is possible to use a built-in PC, but it is recommended to use an earphone microphone or headset because the user experience will deteriorate if there is a howl or keyboard typing sound. We recommend using a conference microphone with an echo canceller if you are meeting with multiple people.

注: Please note that you cannot enter the conference room on a PC that does not have microphone input (an error will occur and you will not be able to enter the room).

# Camera.

Please prepare a built-in PC or an external USB camera. If you don't have a camera, you can also use voice only.

# Usage.

# Frequently Asked Questions

# Q. How many people can I join?

In the case of ROOM TYPE: sfu, there are about 15 people per room using a PC. When the video is muted, the load on the PC is reduced, so a meeting can be held with a larger number of people. In the case of ROOM TYPE: mesh, please think of it as about 4 people.

# Q. Do I need to make a ROOM reservation in advance?

It's not necessary. Just enter the room with a unique ROOM ID and you're ready to go.

# Q. Is it possible to share the screen while displaying the camera image?

I can't. Camera images and screen sharing are optional.

Is the microphone unmuted? You can unlock the microphone by clicking on the microphone icon when you enter the room or after you enter the room.

# Q. What do you use the statistics and media information for?

This application also serves as a test for various functions related to WebRTC. This information is used to check the usage and communication status for troubleshooting and other purposes. You don't need to be aware of this when using it as a web conference.
