  • High frame rate content share is supported for Windows®, macOS®, Android™, and iOS.

Waiting Room

  • The Waiting Room feature prevents meeting participants from seeing or hearing each other until the room owner joins the meeting or the moderator selects a presenter.

    • If Presenter mode is enabled, all the participants’ microphones will remain muted.

Presenter Mode

  • When Presenter mode is enabled:
    • All the participants remain in Waiting Room mode until the moderator selects the presenter.
    • The microphones of all the participants are muted, and they must use the Raise Hand button to request to be unmuted.
    • The conference moderator sees the Raise Hand requests and can select who to unmute.

Call Moderation

  • The moderator can control many aspects of the video call, such as:
    • Invite new participants.
    • Mute and unmute individual or all participants' microphones and cameras.
    • Lock and unlock the room.
    • Switch to Presenter mode.
    • Start, stop, pause, and resume recording.
    • Disconnect participants and end the call.
  • If you are not the room owner, you must enter the moderator PIN to become the moderator.

VidyoClient API Version 20.2.0: General Availability Release

 

 

 

VidyoClient API Version 20.2.0 

What's New in This Release?

Multiple Enhancements for Custom Layout 

  • Multiple enhancements have been added to the Custom Layout in order to provide a better user experience. These enhancements include APIs that the application can use to reduce the chance of getting black video tiles as well as to reduce the receive bandwidth usage.
  • The VidyoConnector Sample has also been updated to include a new layout where all the tiles are equal-sized.

Disabling Video Under Prolonged Low Bandwidth Conditions

  • If an individual user in a call experiences prolonged low network bandwidth, their video feed will automatically shut off. By doing so, their limited bandwidth can be used to transmit their audio.
  • Whenever the VidyoClient API shuts off a video stream due to prolonged low bandwidth, it will notify the application.
  • This feature is disabled by default. For information about how to enable it, contact Enghouse Vidyo as listed in the Contact Us article.

Automatically Reconnecting to Conferences

  • Calls will now automatically attempt to reconnect if they were disconnected under conditions where Enghouse Vidyo determines a reconnection attempt may be successful.
  • If this occurs, the affected users will be notified of the following:
    • When a reconnection is being attempted.
    • The number of attempts at reconnection.
    • Whether the reconnection is successful or not.
  • This feature is disabled by default. For information about how to enable it, contact Enghouse Vidyo as listed in the Contact Us article.

Support for Additional Processors

  • We can now detect newer processors including the Intel Cannon Lake, Intel Ice Lake, and Apple A13, thereby enabling our customers to achieve top-level performance.

Disabling the Default Install License Behavior

  • By default, an install license is consumed whenever a VidyoClient-based app is installed on a new machine. However, an Advanced option is now available that enables you to disable the default install license behavior.
  • This feature is disabled by default. For information about how to enable it, contact Enghouse Vidyo as listed in the Contact Us article.

Pinning and Unpinning One Video Tile at a Time

  • The ability to pin and unpin one video tile at a time on a composite layout has been added.
  • Support for pinning multiple participant tiles is not yet available.

Number of Encoded Spatial Layers Added to Statistics

  • For easier debugging, the statistics now identify the number of spatial layers received, decoded, or rendered by the receiving client.

New and Updated APIs

  • VidyoConnectorSetPool API for guests
    • The VidyoConnectorSetPool API can now be used for guest users. This API enables the application to determine which VidyoRouter in the network will be used for the call by the client.
  • New API to lock orientation of mobile devices
    • The new VidyoLocalCameraSetOrientation API enables the application to lock the orientation of the video rendering window.
