ARCHIVED: Using video in an Adobe Connect meeting

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.

In an Adobe Connect meeting, you have the option to share live video of yourself with meeting attendees. To do this, you'll need a USB web camera connected to your computer. For meeting attendees to share video of themselves, they'll also need USB web cameras connected to their computers.

Opening multiple webcams will dramatically increase the bandwidth requirements for meeting attendees. Allowing no more than six unpaused cameras at a time is recommended. To conserve bandwidth, a user can start a camera feed and then pause it; others in the Connect meeting will see a still image of that user.

Sharing your webcam video

To share video from your webcam with meeting attendees:

  1. In the toolbar at the top of the Connect meeting window, click the Start My Webcam icon. A Video pod will display a preview image so you can adjust the camera position.
  2. To pause or stop the video, hover your mouse over the Video pod and click the appropriate icon.

Enabling video for meeting attendees

For instructions on enabling video for one or more meeting attendees, see ARCHIVED: Elevating attendee permissions.

For instructions on sharing your screen with meeting participants, see ARCHIVED: Sharing your screen in Adobe Connect.
