To host and participate in Spreed Web Meetings you simply need a web browser. There is no additional software required. However, to meet without any problems, please make sure that your system complies with the requirements:
A good and stable Internet connection is important for successful web meetings. Please make sure that your upload is at least 250 kbit/s and your download is at least 512 kbit/s when using Spreed.
Also, please ask all participants to test their connection before the meeting starts, so to prevent problems. A connection test is provided here.
Please take note, that with some firewall settings the communication between your desktop and the server goes through a "HTTP proxy" server. Depending on your available Internet bandwidth and the speed of the Proxy server, audio and video can be delayed. If the latency (the delay) is higher than 200ms you should speak with your system administrator to enable TCP port 1935 (outgoing only) to let Spreed communicating faster. In rare cases "stateful firewalls" may interrupt the Spreed connection after some amount of data has been transferred. Contact your system administrator in this case.
There is no additional software required to host and take part in Spreed Web Meetings. The following requirements on your system should be fulfilled:
Use a headset or a conference system (e.g. Yamaha PJP) to transmit audio. Do not use a microphone in combination with loud speakers (e.g. on a notebook) due to the lack of echo canceling.
Recommended conference systems
To enable video in a Spreed Web Meeting you will need a web-cam. We recommend integrated web-cams, as is Apple iSight, as well as Logitech web-cams (e.g. Quickcam Pro 9000, Logitech Quickcam Pro for notebooks). If using a logitec, please try not to install the additional software but only use the web-cam's driver.
