    Hi,

    Can we imagine a webpage with a selftesting service to see if webmeeting is going to work well on your device (connection quality, web browser compatibility, OS, etc.)
    Some webconferencing services offers it (GoTo Webinar, etc.) and there's a webrtc test : https://test.webrtc.org/


    Regards,
    Julien.

    Hi jb-itd,

    All connection/camera/other checks are done upon logging in to a Meeting. The user is notified IF there are any problems. We see it important not to interrupt the user's experience with unnecessary congratulatory bells and whistles on how his system is running in top-top condition.

    -Connection quality: You're already shown your connection quality in-meeting. If you are experiencing general internet connectivity issues you'l notice this before you try to enter a meeting.

    -Web browser Compatibility: The moment you try to use WebMeeting on an incompatible browser, you're instantly told your browser is incompatible and also told what browser to use. This IS the test.

    -OS, etc: There is no O/S restriction for WebMeeting(Within logic, e.g no Windows 95). Thus no need to be told if your O/S is compatible. We could tell you that it's compatible, but it's unnecessary. GotoMeeting/GotoWebinar and most other conferencing solutions require a ton of installable apps to even work and need to check if they'l work on your system first. That's why they have a test visible to the end user.

    Based on my replies above, the need for a WebRTC test page is for the most part unnecessary for the moment, but will be considered for the future as at least something similar to the generic webrtc test page you can find online.
