VidyoWeb™ makes it easy for guest participants to join conferences from within a web browser on desktop and laptop computers. VidyoWeb is designed especially for guest participants who simply want an easy way to join a conference.
You don’t pay extra for VidyoWeb; it’s built into your VidyoPortal™. However, when a new user connects to your VidyoPortal via VidyoWeb for the first time, one of your licenses is consumed.
"VidyoWeb" only appears in the Settings > Feature Settings submenu when the Super Admin enables it from their Super Admin portal. If you are using VidyoPortal version 17.3.0 or a later version, "VidyoWeb" disappears from the Feature Settings submenu when the Super Admin enables VidyoConnect for WebRTC for the Tenant Admin.
User licenses apply to either VidyoWeb or VidyoDesktop™, but not both at the same time. Therefore, when using VidyoWeb, users should close VidyoDesktop if it’s open.
To enable VidyoWeb:
- Log in to the Admin portal using your Admin account.
For more information, see Logging in to the Admin interface.
The Users page displays by default.
