  • Title: Flash Meeting
    Descriptive info: Main Screen.. |.. FlashBoard.. Keys.. Here are a few helpful tips for those new to FlashMeeting.. If you want a more detailed explanation or technical help, see the main.. page.. FlashMeeting has been designed to be easy to use!.. FlashMeeting runs in a normal web page, so if you have a modern web browser with the Flash 8 (or greater) plugin correctly installed you can use FlashMeeting.. If you have a properly installed web cam and microphone you will be able to communicate with friends and colleagues anywhere in the world.. The Welcome Screen.. The password input field on the title screen should be filled in automatically in most circumstances and normally you will not need to do anything on this screen.. However, if you have to enter the password, use the information given to you by the meeting organizer and click the 'Enter' button to continue.. The Sign In Screen.. To enter the meeting 'Signed In', enter your FlashMeeting account details into the input boxes.. You can tick one or both of the 'Remember' boxes, so that you don't have to do this each time you enter a new FlashMeeting.. Make sure the 'Enter meeting Signed In' radio button is selected and click the 'continue' button.. To enter as a Guest choose the 'Enter meeting as a guest' radio button and click the continue button.. You do not need to enter any details for this.. If you want to register for a 'Sign In' account click the 'Apply' button (this does not appear on the FlashMeeting demo).. If you do not have a FlashMeeting 'Sign In' account, you can visit the meeting before the start time or use.. this.. link and request an account.. A password will be automatically emailed to you, so you need to leave time for this to take place.. Note:.. a 'Sign In' account does.. not.. allow you to book meetings.. See.. this page.. for the differences between account types.. The Title Screen.. Enter the name you want to appear on your image into the text field and click the ENTER button.. If you did not Sign In to the meeting, click the round button at the bottom left if you wish to 'Sign In' to the meeting from this screen.. You must tick the box that confirms you agree to the FlashMeeting.. terms.. before you may enter.. You will see displayed either how long you have to wait for the meeting to start, or how long to the meeting's end if it has already begun.. If you arrive early, 'Sign In' and you can 'check' the tick box to enter the meeting automatically when the start time is reached.. Make sure you enter your name as this will.. work if the name field is left blank.. If the meeting organizer has chosen to record the meeting, you will see a 'notice' indicating that this is the case.. Use this screen to check your camera and microphone before entering the meeting!.. Your web cam image should appear in the box to the left and lights should appear on the audio 'ladder' when you speak.. If not, click the 'Open Test Application' button to test your set-up, or right click on FlashMeeting to open the Flash settings panel.. Here you can select your camera or microphone from the 'drop down' menu and make any adjustments required.. The Main Screen.. The 'standard' interface is described below.. The 'presenter' interface contains the same controls and functions but with an integrated FlashBoard, go.. to see a screen shot.. 1.. The countdown timer shows the time remaining to the end of the meeting.. In addition it shows a green 'flag' with 5 minutes to go, orange with 3 minutes remaining and red when the meeting enters its final minute.. Each colour change is accompanied by an audible warning.. 2.. The name of the first person in the 'queue', and therefore the next person to automatically begin broadcasting, appears here.. 3.. This is where the main broadcast images appear.. The broadcaster's name appears at the bottom left.. If the broadcaster only has a microphone, no image will appear but their audio will still be heard.. 4.. This area normally shows the total number of people participating in the meeting, however, if you 'rollover' a person's image with the mouse their name will appear here.. This is useful when the images are reduced in size because of the increasing number participants.. 5.. Private text chat: If you are 'Signed In', by clicking on a thumbnail or list item you can enlarge the person's image.. Clicking the 'X' in the top corner of the image will close it.. If both you and they are 'Signed In', clicking the 'T' will open a private text chat between the two of you.. If you receive a private text message, an envelope appears on the sender's thumbnail to indicate a new message.. Click the thumbnail to read it.. In addition, an envelope appears above the image list, in case the thumbnail has been scrolled out of view.. Clicking on this envelope shows a list of people from which you have new private messages.. You can select one from the list to view their message.. 6.. Use the 'names' and 'images' tabs to switch between the names and images views.. The images tab: shows the meeting's participants as a list of image 'thumbnails' with their name shown at the top left.. If they join the broadcast queue a hand appears on their picture with the queue position on it.. Also the broadcaster's image border turns green.. The images reduce in size as more people join.. The names tag: lists participants as a text list.. This is useful for slow internet connections and/or computers.. 7.. The audio level from your microphone appears here as coloured bars.. Green coloured bars, with the occasional red bar, should be fine.. If you get the red bar at the top continuously you probably sound distorted to listeners.. Use the 'audio' button in the 'prefs' tab to open a panel allowing you to adjust the sound level.. 8.. If you just have to say something and can't wait for a turn in the queue, clicking this button will immediately replace the person currently broadcasting with you!.. If you wish to return them after you have spoken you can Ctrl+click (Cmd+Click Macs) their image or name from the list, to 'force' them back to broadcasting.. This 'technique' is only possible for the current broadcaster who has also 'Signed In'.. 9.. If you click on the broadcast button.. (1).. , and no one is already 'broadcasting' you will broadcast your audio and video to the meeting until you click the button again  ...   over.. Text Chat History: Clear your text chat history window.. This only clears it on your machine but may save you a lot of scrolling!.. Port Connection: When you first use FlashMeeting it searches for a valid port and then stores it to save time the next time you enter a meeting.. Click the Clear button to clear the saved port and FlashMeeting will check again for valid ports next time you enter.. Warning Sounds: Tick the box if you want to hear the warning sounds at the end of the meeting.. You can also set the volume by choosing between 100, 50 and 25 percent.. The Final Screen.. When the meeting reaches its end the 'final screen' appears.. Unless the meeting is being recorded none of the information, video or text etc.. is kept.. Keep an eye on the countdown timer if you want to 'save' any meeting details.. Click the 'go to' button to go to the main FlashMeeting web page, or if the meeting was recorded click the 'click' button to go the meeting page containing a link to the replay, or if you have finished close the browser window.. If you wish to leave the meeting before the end, simply close the browser window.. FlashBoard - the shared whiteboard.. People who 'Sign In' to a FlashMeeting can create content on the FlashBoard.. Everybody sees and has access to the contents of the whiteboard simultaneously, although 'Guests' can only view it.. The controls are situated at the bottom of the window, with the whiteboard above.. Described from left to right:.. Pins:.. To create one of the three types of 'pin', simply drag one onto the whiteboard area.. Click and drag it to a new position as desired.. Freehand Drawing :.. Open the freehand drawing window to draw lines with your mouse.. Your drawing will not be seen by others until you press the Send button.. Your 'ink' supply will diminish as you draw.. It will refresh after you press the Send button.. Key to image below - from left to right: Select a line thickness from 1 to 6; Select a colour; Cancel and return to FlashBoard; Clear all of the drawing; Undo last line drawn (repeat to delete multiple lines); Send the drawing to the FlashBoard to be seen by all.. Text:.. You can create text 'boxes' with or without a coloured background by dragging either one of the two 'A' boxes onto the whiteboard.. Select the text and type your own content into the newly created 'box'.. If you wish to change to a different text size click on the button below the two 'A' boxes, before you drag one onto the whiteboard.. When a text box that is already on the whiteboard is 'selected', you can drag the grey arrow that appears to the top left of it when you want to reposition it, or click on the 'plus' or 'minus' buttons to change its size.. If you have been creating or editing text you must deselect it to send your changes to everyone else.. Click on the 'background' or another object, its arrow and size buttons will disappear to confirm its de-selection.. Shapes:.. Click on a shape button once then click on the whiteboard and drag the mouse to create the size of the shape you have chosen and release the mouse button.. If you want to create more than one of the same shape, double click a shape button (it will have a bold border) and you will continue to draw that shape until you click a shape button again.. Hold the shift key down as you draw to constrain the shape to a circle or square.. Click the vertical button to the right of the shape buttons to choose a line thickness for the shapes.. Colour Pallet:.. Click on a colour button to change the colour of a selected item, or subsequent items that you create.. Snaps:.. Click this button to open the Snapshot panel.. Here you can either save a 'Snapshot' of the whiteboard in its current state (you can rename its title if you wish), or load a previously saved Snapshot.. Snapshots are automatically saved periodically if the whiteboard is altered.. You can choose whether to list these 'automatic' Snapshots or not.. Images:.. Click the image button to choose a jpg image file from your computer to load on to the whiteboard.. This always appears beneath other objects and text that are on the whiteboard at the same time.. Only one background image can be loaded at any one time.. We recommend 800x600 pixels as the maximum size for jpgs.. Local Lock:.. You can lock 'types' of objects into position so that you do not inadvertently move them when drawing or moving other objects on top of them.. Note that this only works locally on.. your.. computer.. Other people can still move them.. Print:.. Click to open your operating system's print dialogue box, to print what's on the FlashBoard.. Colours:.. If you want a different colour to one shown on the colour pallet (5), click this button to open a colour mixing panel.. Move the sliders until you have the colour you want.. Click on one of the six boxes to the right of the sliders if you wish to save the colour to use again in the meeting.. Click on a box with a saved colour already in it to choose the colour again.. If you Alt+Click on a box with a previously saved colour in it, the new colour replaces it.. 11.. Lists:.. Load a Presentation List of pre-saved slides.. Navigate through the slides using the floating pallet that appears when you load a 'List'.. Click on the title of an individual slide to load it into the FlashBoard.. You can also use the arrow buttons (or the arrows on the keyboard) to navigate through the slides.. Click the minimize button at the top right of the pallet to expand or minimize it, you can also drag it around the FlashBoard to a more convenient position.. Click the 'T' button next to a title to preview a small 'thumbnail' of the slide that only you will see.. For some tips on creating Presentation Lists.. click here.. 12.. Delete:.. Click this button to delete the selected item.. Note that you can also delete most items by dragging them to the grey background of the control area at the bottom and releasing the mouse.. 13.. xDelete:.. Click this to open a panel with a set of buttons that allow you to delete all objects, or certain types of objects, at once.. Keyboard shortcuts.. See the.. Commands page.. for the details of the keyboard and 'command line' shortcuts..

  • Title: Flash Meeting
    Descriptive info: Entering FlashMeeting.. Interface.. Making Bookings.. Administration.. Memo Replay.. Sign In.. FAQ.. Troubleshooting.. You should run the tests below before further troubleshooting if you are having problems.. Remember you.. must.. have the Flash Plugin version 8 or greater installed:.. You can try this.. test.. application to check your current version of Flash.. Use.. application to check and adjust the speakers, microphone and camera connected to your computer, when using Flash.. A Basic Check List:.. 1).. Are both your web browser and the Macromedia Flash 8 or greater plugin correctly installed?.. 2).. Are all plugs and cables correctly connected?.. 3).. Have you installed your web camera's drivers correctly and selected it from the list of video devices within Flash?.. 4).. If you use a separate microphone is it selected and the level set correctly in your operating system's audio mixer? If it is built into your web camera you may still need to select it from the Flash Audio panel (it is sometimes 'helpfully' labelled 'Unknown USB Audio Device'!).. 5).. Is your speaker or headphone volume correctly selected and set?.. 6).. Are you running conflicting software? - You may have to shut down any software that is or has been using your web camera.. 7).. Do you have a 'very restrictive' firewall running or other 'bottle-neck' on your network that will only allow poor performance or none at all; or are you using a modem or a slow 'wireless' connection? Try setting the quality to LOW in the preferences panel.. 8).. Are your browser security settings too restrictive? For example you must have Javascript enabled to see FlashMeeting.. Flash version:.. We recommend you install/update to the latest version of both Flash and your browser before you try FlashMeeting.. At the very least you must have Flash Player 8.. application to check your current version.. Setting Up:.. Use the 'prefs' tab at the bottom of the FlashMeeting interface to optimize the Flash settings for your video and audio.. Choosing between HIGH or LOW as a connection speed, also alters the video and audio quality and therefore processor usage.. This may be a problem on lower speed systems if FlashMeeting seems to be 'running' slowly or poorly and you have chosen too high a quality setting for your system.. No picture? Make sure that:.. a).. you have closed any other applications that use your camera!.. b).. you double check the settings: clicking on the 'prefs' tab allows you to change the standard Macromedia Flash video, audio and other options.. The Privacy setting, for example, enables local access to your media input devices (mic, web cam), and this setting can be saved so that this warning box doesn't come up each time you run FlashMeeting.. c).. you choose the camera tab from the Flash settings panel.. Choose your camera from the drop-down list, the 'thumbnail' view should show the 'live' image from your camera.. If not sometimes clicking on the thumbnail 'forces' it to appear.. If it still does not appear your camera is not working with Flash applications.. Camera and Microphone:.. You can use FlashMeeting without any media 'input' devices to just 'view' the meeting.. However, you should have a properly installed web cam and microphone to participate and get the most from FlashMeeting.. Of course Flash and FlashMeeting will only 'find' your web cam and microphone if they are already correctly installed and recognized by your operating system and you have them plugged into the correct (and working) socket on your computer.. Clearly, you won't be 'seen' unless you have a working camera, and won't be 'heard' unless you have a working microphone! Note that unfortunately some makes of camera are inflexible to the changes in resolution required by FlashMeeting and show only part of the total image.. Check your Camera and Microphone before entering the meeting!.. There is a facility to check both input devices on the 'Title' screen (where you enter your name).. Look to see that you have an image from your web cam and 'bars' appearing on the audio 'ladder' when you speak.. If not use the 'open test application button' to open a test application to help you with your diagnosis.. If you find that you don't have sound when you broadcast within a meeting use the 'Audio' button from the 'prefs' tab to open the Flash audio settings and choose your microphone and set the volume.. If you still don't get any sound you may have to open your operating system's control panel and find the audio mixer controls and make sure that the volume level sliders are 'up' and also not 'muted' for microphone inputs.. Of course for this to work at all, you have to have a working microphone plugged in to the correct (and working) socket on your computer!.. If you use the microphone in your web cam, this may still need to be selected from the list of audio devices in the Flash audio settings 'pop up' window, independently from choosing the web cam from the video settings 'pop up' window.. Sharing a URL:.. When broadcasting, if you 'share' a URL your sound may be interrupted under certain circumstances and you may even appear to 'skip' or 'speed up' to the others watching.. Broadcasters using 'mid' to 'high' end 'Window's PC's' should experience no problems.. Mac users using 'high speed' machines should also have few problems but if using 'mid range' Mac machines your broadcast may be 'interrupted.. For example, if you have the window containing the URL in front of the FlashMeeting window, or when you hold down the mouse to drag the scroll bar, or if you drag the window around the screen.. Also, depending on the page content, a small interruption may occur as the page downloads on both platforms.. Firewall issues:.. You will need two.. port.. s 'open' to run FlashMeeting successfully, Port 80 and also either 443 or 1935.. HTTP 'tunneling' on port 80 will also work.. FlashMeeting automatically attempts to find these ports.. There may be a few seconds delay while it is doing this.. The successful port is stored on your computer to make connecting to a FlashMeeting quicker next time.. If you need to delete the 'saved' port number (for example, if you connect the computer to a different ISP that uses a different port from the one stored), click on the 'Clear Port' text at the bottom of the 'Title' screen and FlashMeeting will automatically scan through the ports the next time that you connect (refresh your browser window to do so immediately).. Slow connections:.. When using a modem (i.. e.. slow connection) use of the broadcast button may seem 'sluggish' -click once and wait for the appropriate action rather than repeatedly click the button, as this may cause the meeting to become 'out of sync'.. Take note of the 'hourglass' that appears near the broadcast button when FlashMeeting is communicating with the server.. If one person has problems due to a slow connection it may help if all users use the 'low' speed setting.. Flash Player Settings Panel:.. The Flash Player Settings Panel contains a number of useful settings and options.. Open it either by 'right-clicking' on FlashMeeting, or clicking the appropriate button on the FlashMeeting 'prefs' tab.. The 'Privacy' panel enables local access to your media input devices (mic, web cam), and this setting can be saved (click the 'remember' tick box) so that the 'warning' box doesn't come up each time you run FlashMeeting.. If the Flash settings panel appears when you first load FlashMeeting and you have to choose between 'Allow' or 'Deny', choose 'Allow' to enable both your sound and video.. If this causes Flash to 'hang', restart the browser and choose 'deny' to use FlashMeeting in a limited way without your sound and video.. This obviously means there is some video or sound 'set-up' problem between your system and Flash.. The 'Local Storage' panel allows you to set the amount of data FlashMeeting can store on your hard disk for a particular web domain.. The default size is 100KB which should be fine for FlashMeeting.. If you find that your FlashMeeting preferences and settings are not being 'remembered' between sessions, check that the size is not set to zero KB.. The 'Camera' panel allows you to choose your video input device from a drop-down menu.. You may have to click on the small 'picture' rectangle to get an image to appear.. If you don't see an image here either you haven't chosen your camera correctly from the menu, or Flash cannot find your camera software.. The 'Microphone' panel allows you to chose your audio input device from a drop-down menu and set the sound level.. Adjust the level so that you see a 'green and yellow' bar when you speak.. Tip:.. Take a look at the.. QuickStart.. page for simple help and advice on using the interface.. Flash Popups:.. If a 'Flash Player Settings' alert box appears when you run the application, you will need to answer 'Allow' to use your camera and microphone with FlashMeeting.. You can open this 'Privacy' panel from within FlashMeeting ('prefs' tab) and click the 'Remember' check box so that it won't appear each time you start a FlashMeeting.. The initial 'log in' screen:.. This is automatically filled in if the user uses the 'link' provided by the booking system.. Otherwise enter the password and click 'Enter'.. The Sign In screen:.. You can also choose to 'Sign In' to the FlashMeeting from this screen.. Enter your FlashMeeting account details into the input boxes and click the 'Continue' button.. If you don't have a 'Sign In' account you can request one by clicking on the 'Apply' button (this does not appear in some versions of FlashMeeting).. You will be sent a password by email and you can use this to 'Sign In'.. You can choose to have your 'Sign In' details remembered by selecting the check box, so that you will always automatically enter a FlashMeeting with the advantages of being 'Signed In'.. Or you can just save your email and type in your password for each individual meeting.. Advantages of being 'Signed In' to a meeting include; you can text chat to another person privately; use the whiteboard; upload and delete files for the meeting; directly access your administration web pages.. If you automatically 'Sign In' to meetings and you don't want to, deselect the remember password check box and refresh the web page.. To clear your email address, deselect the remember email check box and refresh the web page.. Notes on Requesting a new 'Sign In' account (where available).. You only need to create a new 'Sign In' account once.. You can do this:.. From within the FlashMeeting you are attending - but you will have to wait for an email containing your new password (you could still enter the meeting as a guest and then 'Sign In' from within the meeting when the email arrives).. From the.. Sign In.. web page.. The 'Title' screen:.. The meeting 'Title' screen showing title and description taken from the booking form.. Enter the name you wish to appear on screen and click 'Enter'.. Also use this screen to check that your microphone and camera are working before you enter the meeting.. If you see an image your video is working.. If green and yellow bars appear in the 'ladder' when you speak your sound is working.. If not click on the 'Open Test Application' button, or right click and open the Flash settings panel.. You must tick the box to agree to the FlashMeeting.. before you can enter the meeting.. Pre-meeting Timer:.. If you try to join a meeting before it has started you will not be able to get farther than the 'Title' screen.. A timer will show you how long you have to wait.. You can either leave and join again nearer the start time or wait for the meeting to start.. If you are 'Signed In' and wish to enter the meeting automatically when it begins, click on the check box to make the tick appear.. As soon as the meeting starts (and the 'name' field is.. blank), you will enter.. Ending a FlashMeeting:.. When the meeting time period reaches its end, you will be shown the 'Final' screen.. Any URLs you may have 'saved' within FlashMeeting are shown, so that you may copy and save them permanently if you wish.. If you want to leave a meeting before the end, simply close the browser window and FlashMeeting will automatically remove your thumbnail from all of the remaining participant's screen.. The Interface.. The Broadcast Button (9):.. If no one is broadcasting clicking the button labeled 'Start Broadcasting' means your video and sound will be broadcast to all those joined to the meeting.. If another person is already broadcasting this button shows a hand and some text.. If you click on it you will be added to the queue and wait for your turn, a hand will appear on your thumbnail to indicate that you want to speak.. The first person in the queue.. automatically.. starts broadcasting when the current speaker stops.. The numbers on the button indicate where you are in the queue.. As an example if you were second in a queue of four people it would show 2(4).. The first number.. (note: this doesn't appear if you are not in the queue).. indicates your position in the queue and the number in parenthesis shows the total number in the queue.. When the person broadcasting clicks the button again to end their broadcast whoever is first in the queue takes over automatically.. Pressing the 'Page Up' or 'Page Down' key is the same as clicking the 'Broadcast' button.. a slow connection) use of the Broadcast button my seem 'sluggish' - click and wait for the appropriate action rather than repeatedly click the button (look for the 'hourglass' to check for any delay).. The Interrupt Button (8):.. If you wish to interrupt a broadcast click the 'Interrupt' button.. This will force any broadcast to stop and you will take over.. If you want to hand back to the original speaker, simply Ctrl+left click (Cmd+click Macs) on their thumbnail image or name from the list view and it will force that person to begin broadcasting again, ignoring any queue positions.. You must be 'Signed In' to do this.. Note: If there is just two people in the meeting, simply using the Interrupt button to quickly alternate between the two of you is a good way to keep the conversation flowing.. When using a modem (slow connection) use of the Interrupt button my seem 'sluggish' - click and wait for the appropriate action rather than repeatedly click the button.. Image and Names Tab Views (6):.. By using the two tabs situated at the top right of the interface, you have a choice between viewing a list of all the people in the meeting by their name or their image.. Choose the 'images' tab and a number of small images appear showing each person in the meeting (this may be slow to update at first):.. When a person is broadcasting their thumbnail's border turns green.. A hand appears on the thumbnail if they are in the queue, the number indicating their position.. Any Vote, Private text and Emoticon icons appear at the bottom of each thumbnail image.. If there are too many people to see all the thumbnails at once, use the two scroll buttons to the right of the list to scroll through them.. If you are 'Signed In' and the broadcaster, Ctrl+left clicking (Cmd+clicking Macs) on a thumbnail from the list will force that person to begin broadcasting, ignoring any queue positions.. Choose the 'names' tab and the people at the meeting will be shown as a simple text list:.. This is a useful choice for people using a slow connection, as it means the thumbnail images do not use up your bandwidth.. When a person is broadcasting their text 'line' will turn green.. A hand appears to the left of their name if they are in the queue, the number indicating their position.. If there are too many people to see all at once, use the two scroll buttons to the right of the list to scroll through them.. Any Vote and Emoticon icons appear next to a person's name.. If you are 'Signed In' and the broadcaster, Ctrl+left clicking (Cmd+clicking Macs) on a name from the list will force that person to begin broadcasting, ignoring any queue positions.. Private text chat (5):.. If you are 'Signed In', by clicking on a thumbnail or list item you can enlarge the person's image.. You can also enter some 'Commands' into private chat.. Vote Tab (10):.. Click on the small square buttons to chose between 'Yes', 'No' or 'Abstain' to have your vote counted.. Click on the button again to remove your vote, or on a different button to change your vote.. The 'Emoticons' can be used at any time to display one of five indicators on your thumbnail.. Click on an icon to display or remove an Emoticon.. Apart from the 'time' Emoticon, all automatically disappear after about 10 seconds.. Text Chat Tab (10):.. Click the 'chat' tab to see the text chat panel.. Type some text into the chat input box and click the 'Send' button to send the text to everyone (you can also press 'Enter').. 'Alt'+click on the 'Send' button if you want to clear your chat window.. The chat tab turns green when a new message is received and you have another tab window open.. Typing @@ at the begining of a message tells FlashMeeting that you are entering a 'Command' line instruction instead of a text message.. See the commands.. for details.. You can also create 'minutes' within the meeting.. If you type ### at the start of a text chat message, it is recognized as an 'annotation'  ...   box of a specific person, your name will display as a 'link' to your email when they look at their own 'My Contacts' list.. If you later decide not to share your email with them, un-tick the box again.. If you don't wish to see a particular person in your list, tick the 'Hidden' box to hide them.. Use the 'Hidden' radio button to display the list of people you have hidden.. Un-tick the 'Hidden' box to include them in the main list again.. Click the 'View' link to see a list of FlashMeetings that you and the person have both entered.. Store:.. Use this page to upload your own personal collection of individual images (jpgs only at the present time) that you want to use in FlashBoard.. You can then use these to create 'collections' of slides called presentations (use the 'Presentations' link at the top of your personal FlashMeeting web pages to see these).. You can still use the 'Images' button on FlashBoard within a FlashMeeting, to load individual pictures directly from your hard drive if and when the need arises.. Click the 'add new item' button to choose a new image to upload it to the FlashMeeting server.. Enter a title for the image and a description if you wish.. Each image has buttons to allow you to edit it (change details or swap for a new image), or delete it.. Images larger than 800 x 600 pixels will be resized down to 800x600.. Presentations:.. You can sort individual images from your 'Store', into any number of 'Presentation Lists', to enable you to load only the ones you require for a specific FlashMeeting.. This web page displays all of your Presentation Lists.. You can create a new 'List' here, or edit or delete an existing one.. When you create or edit a 'List', the screen divides in two, with all of your 'Stored' images at the bottom and the images in the presentation at the top.. 'Tick' the 'check boxes' on the left of the rows of individual images in your store that you wish to appear in the presentation you are editing and click the 'add to presentation' button to add them.. The images 'physically' remain in your store of course for you to use in other presentations, this just allows you to make different 'sets' of images for individual FlashMeetings.. Images in a list can be re-ordered or edited - click on the round 'check button' to the left of an image to select it, or click the 'dustbin' button to delete it.. Deleted images will still be in your 'Store', just removed from this particular 'Presentation List'.. You access your Presentation Lists from within FlashMeeting by using the 'Lists' button on FlashBoard (you must have 'Signed In' to the meeting to do this).. FlashMeeting Memo Replay.. FlashMeeting Replays are provided by the application 'Memo' which is based on the same 'Flash' technology as FlashMeeting.. Recordings are accessed using a special 'direct' URL link, which can be kept as secret or 'open' as required.. If this URL is not used, the meeting's password will have to be entered into the text field on the Memo 'start' screen, before the replay can be viewed.. Full details can be seen on the FlashMeeting.. Memo.. Frequently Asked Questions.. What did you use to create FlashMeeting?.. FlashMeeting is written in Flash, an application that creates programs that 'run' using a standard web browser plug in which is used throughout the world.. What do I need to use it?.. A correctly set-up and working computer connected to the internet, running a modern web browser with the Flash 8 (or greater) plug in installed.. Windows PC and Mac based computers work fine.. Why do I have to register to get all the features?.. Some of the more powerful features of FlashMeeting need to have some 'accountability' in case they are misused.. Most people behave 'properly' within a FlashMeeting, however any 'inappropriate' behaviour will result in the perpetrator being banned.. In addition to this safeguard our research requires us to collect data on the use of FlashMeeting.. What are the differences between the account types?.. Look at.. account types.. web page to find out.. What can I do to make FlashMeeting run more smoothly?.. Quit all other applications you have running, leaving maximum resources for your browser.. You can also switch the FlashMeeting quality setting to 'Low', found on the 'prefs' tab panel.. Why does my camera not work with FlashMeeting, as it is working in another application?.. Some web cams do not seem to be able to 'share' video 'between' applications.. If this happens shut down the other application and reload FlashMeeting.. Will it work on Linux, Mac OS9, Solaris, Windows 95 or NT based machines?.. Only when Flash 8 or greater is released for these systems.. Is FlashMeeting secure?.. Each newly booked FlashMeeting is given an automatically created security code which is included in the URL for the meeting.. Only those people given this unique URL, are able to enter the meeting.. What's the idea behind broadcasting?.. People take turns 'broadcasting' their video and audio to all the other people in the meeting.. No one can speak 'over' someone else.. How do I broadcast?.. If no one else is already broadcasting clicking once on the large button labelled 'Start Broadcasting', will begin broadcasting your image and sound to everyone else connected to the meeting.. Click the button again to stop your broadcast.. Click once - to broadcast.. Click again - to stop.. Simple!.. Do I have to 'click' on the Broadcast button each time using the mouse?.. No, pressing either the 'Page Up' or 'Page Down' key is the same as clicking the 'Broadcast' button.. What is the Interrupt button for?.. If you really need to speak and can't wait for the queue or the broadcaster to stop, click the 'interrupt' button and you will begin broadcasting immediately.. I feel bad about interrupting someone if there is a queue?.. If you are the broadcaster you can click on a person's thumbnail whilst holding down the Ctrl (Cmd) key, to 'force' that person to broadcast.. This is the polite way to return them to being the 'broadcaster' after you have interrupted them.. Otherwise they would have no other option but to join the end of the queue (or click the 'interrupt' button themselves).. What is the Queue?.. If someone is already broadcasting and you click the 'large' button displaying the words 'Join Queue' and a number in brackets (indicating the length of the queue), you will be put on to the end of the 'queue' and the button will change to display your position within it.. For example 3(3) means that you are third out of three people in the queue.. A small hand with a number on it also appears on your thumbnail, to indicate to other people that you are in the queue and your position within it.. If you are first in the queue, when the person broadcasting finishes, you will automatically take over and begin broadcasting yourself, you don't need to press the 'broadcast' button in this case.. Why do you use a low frame rate?.. FlashMeeting is designed with a low but useful video frame rate, to allow better audio over 'normal' web connections and in preparation for the many possible connections spread over separate but simultaneous meetings.. How do I leave or quit Flashmeeting?.. Simply close the browser window.. Will I have problems using FlashMeeting with a Firewall?.. FlashMeeting works with most Firewalls.. Normally port 80 must be 'open' and also either port 1935 or 443.. But if required 'http tunneling' on port 80 will also work.. When you first use FlashMeeting it will automatically search for ports.. If you fail to get a connection ask your network administrator to open the required port numbers.. Where can I find the port that FlashMeeting has chosen to use for the connection?.. The port number is displayed at the bottom right of the 'prefs' screen.. If 't' for 'tunneling' is shown it may help to set the quality to 'Low', otherwise your broadcast may be 'choppy', as 'tunneling' is a technique that allows FlashMeeting to work with some firewalls but may also introduce some delay.. If you think you can get a 'better' port, you can clear your saved port and reload FlashMeeting, to make it search again through the ports available to you.. Can I use FlashMeeting without a web cam and/or microphone?.. Yes, you will still see other people's images and you can use the text chat to communicate.. Will FlashMeeting work with a modem?.. Yes, FlashMeeting is low data rate friendly.. Choose the 'Low' connection setting from the preferences tab.. The broadcast might 'breakup' sometimes, depending on the quality of your connection.. Note that it has been commented that if one person is having difficulty on a low bandwidth/poor connection, it may help the meeting overall, if everyone switches to the 'Low' setting.. What do the beeps and flashing colours towards the end of a meeting indicate?.. At intervals of five, three and one minute before the end of the meeting an audible warning is played and the countdown timer in the top left corner is 'coloured', as an indicator that the meeting time limit is nearing the end.. You can adjust the volume of the sounds or turn them off.. Is the meeting recorded?.. Yes.. However the person booking the meeting may have the option to not record a meeting.. A notification appears on the title screen if the meeting is set to record.. The replay is viewed using the application 'FlashMeeting Memo'.. The URL to the replay is given at the time of booking the meeting and is 'secure' as it can only be viewed by those given this specific URL.. The replay can be edited, for example, if an individual broadcast needed to be removed and also annotations can be added.. Can I annotate the meeting live?.. Yes, you can create 'minutes'.. If you type ### at the start of a text chat message, it is recognized as an annotation remark and not just a text chat message.. It will appear in the meeting's replay as an annotation.. Alternatively you can type *** at the start for a 'silent' annotation, this will not appear in the meeting's text chat window but will appear in the replay.. Or use the command @@a or @@as (annotation or silent annotation respectively) before your message.. How can I make sure my camera and microphone are working before I enter the meeting?.. You should see the image from your camera and see indicator bars on the 'audio ladder' as you speak, on the FlashMeeting 'title' page.. Either click the 'open test application' button, or right click on FlashMeeting and open the Flash settings panels.. Open the appropriate Flash panel that lets you choose your media input 'devices' and make adjustments.. If your device does not appear in the list it is not installed properly on your computer and Flash can't find it.. See the manual that came with the device.. Will I get sound problems if there are two of us separately joined to a meeting in the same room?.. If one of you makes a broadcast and the other has speakers instead of headphones, the sound will probably 'feedback', producing an undesirable looping 'screeching' type sound.. You should both use headphones, turn the speakers off, or to a very low volume.. Can I use headsets?.. Yes properly set up headphone/microphone combinations can work well, but be aware that the close proximity of the microphone to your mouth may 'fool' the indicator 'ladder', and your sound may be louder and more distorted than you expect.. Do I have to remember the password to a meeting?.. No.. Most people joining a meeting will simply click on a link in an email message (provided to them by the person who booked the meeting) that already contains the password.. When using such a link the details are entered automatically.. You just 'Sign In' (or not), fill in your name and press the 'Enter' button.. The FlashMeeting 'URL link' in the email I received doesn't seem to work when I click on it?.. Does it 'run over' two or more lines? If so sometimes it doesn't include the complete URL when it opens in a browser window.. You will have to copy and paste the complete URL from the email into the address line of your browser window.. How can I quickly agree or disagree with someone without interrupting them?.. Open the 'vote' tab and click on the 'Emoticon' conveying your feeling at the time! This appears on your thumbnail on all machines connected to the meeting for approximately ten seconds.. The 'Clock' Emoticon stays 'on' until the button is clicked again.. This can be used, amongst other things, to indicate that you are temporarily away.. How can I clear the vote?.. Only the person who is broadcasting can 'clear' (reset to 0) the current vote.. Go to the 'Vote' tab and click the 'Clear ALL Votes' button.. What does the 'hourglass' mean when I click the Broadcast button?.. The 'hourglass' appears when your copy of FlashMeeting is making the 'connection' to the FlashMeeting server after you have clicked the Broadcast button.. When using a modem or a slow connection, use of the Broadcast button my seem 'sluggish' - click once and wait for the appropriate action rather than repeatedly clicking the button.. Why would I want to choose the 'names' tab?.. The 'names' tab displays the people connected to the meeting in a text form, as opposed to the display of thumbnails.. If you have a slow connection this will help as the thumbnail images won't have to continually update, taking up your connection bandwidth.. You will still get to see Emoticons and who's in the queue etc.. Of course you may just prefer seeing the names in the larger type size.. Why does my broadcast seem to cut-out occasionally?.. On Apple Macs, if you are broadcasting and you make the window containing FlashMeeting go to the 'background', because for example you open a URL in a new window, be aware that your broadcast may break-up.. This doesn't seem to be a problem on a Windows PC.. A slow connection or processor can also be a cause of intermittent broadcasts.. How can I stop the Flash 'Privacy' popup box appearing each time I start FlashMeeting?.. Click on the 'Privacy' button on the FlashMeeting preferences 'tab' to open the Flash preferences popup.. 'Check' the 'Remember' option, so that a tick appears in the square next to 'Remember'.. The privacy box should not appear again.. When someone makes a long broadcast it seems to be split up?.. If the length of a single broadcast within a recorded meeting is greater than 5 minutes, it is automatically 'split' to keep the sections 'manageable' when viewed later in FlashMeeting Memo.. Can I edit or cancel a meeting?.. Use the 'Login' or 'Book' link at the top of the page and log in using your email and password.. Use the 'My Events' link at the top of the new page to see a list of the meetings you have booked.. Click on the appropriate icon accociated with the meeting you wish to change to alter or delete it.. The help page contains a chart to explain the administration icons.. Can I edit my personal details?.. Use the 'Login' link on the main page and log in using your email and password.. Use the 'My Details' link at the top of the new page to see and alter your details.. Someone shared a URL but I didn't see it?.. You will not see it if your browser blocks pop-ups.. When a URL is sent it appears in a new window on everyone's machine.. However, if your web browser is set to block 'pop-ups' it will not appear.. Depending on which browser you use, you should see a warning and you can 'allow' your browser to display the window.. On a Windows PC every subsequent 'launch' (if not blocked) should appear in the same window.. If you close the window, then another will open.. Apple Macs open a new window for each URL sent.. The FlashMeeting preferences tab contains a setting that allows you to turn off this feature if you do not wish to view any shared URLs within the meeting.. Do other people see the same as me?.. Everyone will see the same interface during the meeting - the same broadcast, text chat, URLs for example.. The only minor differences will be the top left 'thumbnail' will always show the user's own image and a different 'tab' may be chosen (i.. the chat tab rather than the URL tab).. Do I have to 'Sign In' to a FlashMeeting?.. No, but you will be missing out on a lot of features!.. Can I disconnect or bar a person from within a FlashMeeting?.. If you are the booker of a meeting and have also 'Signed In', Alt+Click a person's thumbnail or 'list' name to see a panel that allows you to either disconnect that person, or bar them from the meeting.. Alternatively you can also type a 'Command' into a person's private text chat.. This could be for 'technical' reasons, as well as the more obvious 'social' reasons.. What is a FlashMeeting Command?.. You can control FlashMeeting by entering a valid 'command' into either the main text chat, or private text chat.. FlashMeeting recognizes a Command when @@ is used at the beginning of the text chat line.. The first Command you should learn is @@help, to open the Command help.. !.. Must I have Javascript enabled?.. Yes, you must have Javascript enabled for your browser.. If you can't see FlashMeeting when you click on a link you may have Javascript disabled in your browser settings..

  • Title: FlashMeeting Presenter
    Descriptive info: |.. FlashMeeting Presenter.. When booking a FlashMeeting you can choose between the 'standard' style interface and the 'presentation' style interface.. The main difference between the two is that the 'presentation' interface contains the FlashBoard.. within it.. , rather than opening in a separate pop-up window.. If you are making a presentation or think you will use the FlashBoard a lot, it may be the better choice.. However, note  ...   chat may be difficult to read on a small monitor.. The controls and functions work in the same way as the 'standard' interface.. If the 'presentation' style interface is chosen, the Memo replay will automatically appear in a similar style, with the integrated FlashBoard.. Note that you.. be 'Signed In' to a FlashMeeting (whichever type is chosen), to be able to use the FlashBoard.. Guests can only view it..

  • Title: FlashMeeting Presentation Lists Help
    Descriptive info: FlashMeeting Presentation Lists Help.. Here are some instructions and tips for presenting slides in FlashMeeting.. PowerPoint is often the starting point for many people's slide presentations.. You can t upload *.. ppt slides directly into FlashMeeting, but you can convert your PowerPoint presentation into a format that can be used with FlashMeeting (only.. jpg files can be used within FlashMeeting).. These are some steps you can follow:.. Open your.. ppt in the Powerpoint application, and go to File-- save as and choose JPEG File Interchange (*.. jpg) from the save as type drop-down menu, and Powerpoint will save your presentation as.. jpg.. Maybe the text won t be of perfect quality, as Powerpoint has converted it to.. jpg.. Try it with a slide and if you think the quality is not good enough, you can try and re-create the slides in another application such as Photoshop.. Now to add your slides as a FlashMeeting presentation.. Go to the address.. http://flashmeeting.. open.. ac.. uk/mxbooking/mf_obj.. php.. and click on store , you will then be asked to add a title and description for each slide and then you can click on browse to add each slide.. (I m afraid you ll have to add each slide separately ) and then click  ...   URL and start your presentation, (remember to 'Sign In' with your details so you will have access to all FlashMeeting's features).. Once you are in the meeting, click on xtras -- FlashBoard , to open the FlashBoard.. On the bottom right of the FlashBoard you will see some buttons, you can click on either the list button (which will load all of your slides as a presentation), or the images button (to load each slide separately).. If you choose to load the presentation as a list , a 'floating pallet' containing a menu showing all the slides is created, which you can navigate using either your mouse or the arrows from your keyboard.. So, maybe it s a better option than loading individual images if you have many slides to show.. When viewing the Memo replay , you should click on the open snaps button (in the middle of the page, right hand side) and your slides will be opened in another window, so the video and slides can be seen at the same time as they appeared in the 'live' meeting.. If there is no video, you can maximize the open snaps window and hear the audio playing 'beneath' the slide presentation, or just view the slides changing..
