Electric Scotland's Video/Audio Conferencing
Help Guide

How it works...
  • Web videoconferencing allows you to easily and quickly connect to anyone in the world via the Internet with live, interactive video, audio and text messaging.
  • Unless you are an existing user, you will need to sign up as a new user.
  • You will then receive the small software download that enables your PC to use it (it will ask you to approve of the download in two steps).
  • You will then arrive in a “conference room” (also called a connection center), where either you or the other party can place a call to each other by double-clicking on the user name of the person they wish to connect to.
  • After you are connected in a videoconference call, click “Send Video” and/or “Send Audio” to enable your video/audio sending. You can also send text messages by typing into the textbox at the bottom and clicking Send (or Enter).

Minimum technical requirements...

Minimum requirements include a Windows-based PC (minimum 166mhz) and an Internet connection (minimum 56K modem). If you will be sending video, you will need a webcam (these are inexpensive and can be found at any computer store). If you will be sending audio, you will need a microphone or headset.  To send and receive audio at the same time, your computer will need a full duplex sound card (these are standard on most recent PC’s). 

Modem users should ensure they don't select LIGHT compression in setup.  For modem users it must always be in FULL compression otherwise you will only get 1 frame per minute. 

FULL compression = good.  LIGHT compression = bad.
