Adjusting Broadcast Settings

Once live, the broadcast mode can be altered using the «Speak» button. To modify webcam and microphone preferences, select "Webcam & Microphone" from the menu icon situated at the upper right corner.

During the webinar, use this button if you wish to momentarily mute your microphone and then switch it back on to resume broadcasting.

Ensure your devices are properly connected and functioning.
Check if another application is using the webcam or microphone.

Ensure the website has the necessary permissions.
Update the browser to its latest version or try a different browser.
