Click Test My Browser to check whether your browser is properly set up for running meetings. Clicking this button will open a meeting in a new window, in which you can try out various tools (including audio and video feeds, if you are using them).
If the meeting window opens and you see the new meeting, then your browser is setup correctly for running new meetings.
After you click this button, you may see security warnings informing you that you are about to download a program (the Sametime Meeting Room). Accept these warnings or you will not be able to test the meeting.
If the meeting room does not open, follow the instructions in the messages to correct any problems. After correcting any problems, you may need to close the window and click the button again to restart the test.
Checking system settings
To check your system settings, and see if you need to make any changes to your browser set-up, choose View - Startup Messages in the meeting room.
Checking connection information
To check whether there are any connection issues, choose View - Meeting Room Status Log from the meeting room menus.
Testing audio and video tools
If you want to use your computer's audio or video capabilities in a meeting, you should test these tools in the meeting room by speaking into the microphone and checking your picture in the video tab (if you have a Web camera). Your computer must include a supported sound card and camera to use these facilities. Note that you can attend a meeting that uses video even if you do not have a camera.
If your browser uses a pop-up blocker, some capabilities in the meeting room will not be available. See the help for your browser or for your installed pop-up blocker to determine how to turn off pop-up blockers for the computer that runs online meetings.
