VidyoReplay Version 20.2.0: General Availability Release

 

VidyoReplay Version 20.2.0: General Availability Release 

 

VidyoReplay™ Version 20.2.0

What's New? 

HTML5 Player Replacing Flash® Player

  • Starting with this release, VidyoReplay will use an HTML5 player instead of a Flash player to play videos.
  • Why did we switch to HTML5?
    • Flash-based streaming is now being deprecated on most major browsers, and after 2020, it will become blocked by default.
    • All modern, popular browsers support HTML5 videos (including Chrome™, Firefox®, Safari®, and more). Unlike with Flash, you do not have to install any browser plugin or video player. Your browser is your player.
    • HTML5 is lightweight, fast, and takes less CPU time to render content than Flash does.

Ability to Enable and Disable Audio-Only Avatars

  • You now have the ability to enable or disable the avatar that displays when a participant has their video source muted (only when the participant is in audio-only mode).
    • When enabled, if a participant’s video source is muted during a call, an avatar with the first three letters of their name appears on their tile.
    • When disabled, if a participant’s video source is muted during a call, their video tile does not display at all.
  • You can easily configure this setting using the new "Use Avatar" checkbox on the Recorder > Configuration page. 

New Icon to Indicate When All Participants Have Muted Video

  • When all the participants in a video call have their video sources muted, this icon now appears on the full screen: 
  • This icon lets you know that the reason you’re not seeing video is because the participants have chosen not to display it rather than because of a video problem.

Audio Quality Improvements

  • We've added support for recordings of up to 48 kHz.

System Updates

  • For added security and stability, updates for multiple third-party packages and libraries are included as part of this release.

Resolved Issues

  • In this release, we've resolved a number of issues for improved stability and usability.

When?

VidyoReplay™ Version 20.1.0

What's New in This Release? 

Opus Support with VidyoConnect™
