2020 Important Notices


 

Important Notice for VidyoReplay™ Customers: Please Read

 

 

 

 

On-Premises and Hybrid VidyoReplay™ Customers Must Upgrade to Version 20.2.0 by December 31, 2020

What Is the Issue?  

On December 31, 2020, Adobe® will no longer support Flash® Player. Versions of VidyoReplay prior to 20.2.0 rely on Flash; therefore, you must immediately upgrade your VidyoReplay to version 20.2.0 or you will no longer be able to play back recorded videos.

As a reminder, Enghouse Vidyo released VidyoReplay version 20.2.0 on September 21, 2020 to proactively replace Flash Player with the HTML5 Player. For more information about VidyoReplay version 20.2.0 and about Adobe’s deprecation of Flash Player, refer to the following:

Which Versions Have Already Resolved the Issue?

If you have already upgraded to VidyoReplay version 20.2.0, which uses the HTML5 Player, you do not need to take any action.

Which Versions Are Still Impacted? 

VidyoReplay versions 20.1.0 and earlier rely on Flash, and therefore, are impacted by its End of Life. All of these versions must be upgraded by December 31, 2020.

What Actions Can I Take Now?

  • If you are an on-premises or hybrid customer, you must upgrade by downloading version 20.2.0 from theVidyoReplay Packages article on the Vidyo Help Center.
  • If you are cloud customer, you will be automatically upgraded to version 20.2.0 in the coming weeks.

April 1, 2020

 

 

 

Attention System Administrators:
Monitor Your Vidyo Call Capacity During the COVID-19 Usage Surge

We understand your organization may be experiencing high-volume Vidyo usage surges due to COVID-19. Therefore, we want to provide you with some tools and tips for monitoring your capacity to ensure your organization can meet these increased demands.

As an on-premises Vidyo customer, this important notice is intended to help you easily and quickly: 

  • Generate call usage reports in Microsoft® Excel (Windows® customers only).
  • Set up email notifications to alert you when your licenses are running low or expiring.
  • Verify the number of licenses you have.
  • Understand the different types of Vidyo licenses. 

Note: If you are a cloud customer, refer to the Viewing Analytics in the VidyoCloud Usage Dashboard article.

Generating Call Usage Reports

If you are a Windows user, you can easily create VidyoPortal™ call usage reports (by day and by hour) to analyze your high-volume business call usage data.

Setting Up Email Notifications and Verifying the Number of Licenses 

As described in the table below, you can use the VidyoPortal to set up email notifications to alert you when your licenses run low and to verify the number of licenses in your organization.

Understanding Install Licenses and Line Licenses

As described in the table below, Enghouse Vidyo uses two types of licenses: Install licenses and Line licenses:

License Description
Install Licenses
  • A one-time license consumed by each device (e.g., laptop, PC, tablet, smartphone) that joins a conference for the first time from the VidyoPortal.
  • Endpoints used: VidyoConnect™ for Desktop, VidyoConnect for Mobile, VidyoDesktop™, VidyoWeb™, and VidyoMobile™.
Line Licenses
  • A perpetual software license through the VidyoRouter – either point-to-point or multipoint.
  • Allows concurrent endpoint connections that can join a conference or call at any given time.
  • When the endpoint disconnects from the call, the line becomes available for use.
