I am using my webcam and see an image in the preview image window, but when I click 'Start Sharing', the video pod displays black?
If the preview image works, but the image does not work once you start sharing, you need to update the browser which the meeting room is running.

Share Content

Can you share a presentation with embedded audio?
Yes, if you use the Share My Screen - Share Document, the audio is heard in the meeting room.  If you share through 'My Screen', the audio is not shared.
Can you share a video in the share pod and be seen on mobile devices?
In the current version of ACP, if you share a video in the share pod, such as an .mp4, it will work for individuals on computers, but individuals on mobile devices will not be able to see or hear the video. They get a message such as 'Unsupported content'.

Can I allow my participants to page through the documents (PDFs or PPTS) that I have loaded in my Share pod?
Yes, participants can move through your documents separately from you, if you turn off the Sync function.  You can do this by clicking 'Sync' in the bottom RH corner of your Share pod (Sync tab will not be shown in gray).  Click 'Sync' again so that participants will see the same page as the Presenter.  The Share pod is defaulted to 'Sync' mode.
When Weblinks are used during a session, will the webpages being visited be captured in the recording?
Weblinks launch your default browser with a new window or tab. If you want to capture the webpages, you will need to use the Share My Screen feature and go to that browser window or tab.
