ARCHIVED: Known issues with Adobe Connect at IU

This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Information here may no longer be accurate, and links may no longer be available or reliable.

Adobe Connect, IU's previous web collaboration and conferencing system, became read-only on August 31, 2017, and was fully retired on December 28, 2017. After a comprehensive pilot evaluation, Zoom was selected as its replacement.

UITS converted Adobe Connect recordings to MP4 format, but Adobe Presenter files were not automatically converted. UITS offers a content migration service for faculty who need assistance moving Presenter content to other platforms. To take advantage of this service, complete the Adobe Presenter Migration Support form.

Windows 8.1 screen share freezes intermittently
When a Host/Presenter shares his or her entire desktop from a Windows 8.1 computer, after a period of time, the screen share may freeze for the remote meeting attendees. If the Host/Presenter stops sharing and starts sharing again, meeting attendees will see a black share window. When the screen share is frozen, the rest of the Connect meeting (audio, video, text chat) will continue working.
The Host/Presenter must leave the Connect meeting, rejoin the meeting, and initiate the screen share again.

Audio missing from Connect meeting recording
The audio in a Connect recording may stop broadcasting during playback of the recording. In such cases, the audio worked normally during the live meeting, but during playback of the recording, the audio cuts out, always at the same point.
Contact UITS Collaboration Technologies (, 812-856-2020) who will attempt to repair the recording and restore the audio.
