Here are instructions and tips for adjusting your video settings during your videoconference if you are using our One-Click platform on a Mac or Windows computer.  

 

 

Answer

 

 

Change camera or microphone device

The camera and microphone used by One-Click can be changed within the One-Click interface. The speaker used is your default computer speaker, and will need to be changed within your system settings.

 

1. Click on the "Settings" icon in the lower left hand corner of the window (while in a session).

Arrow pointing at Settings icon

 

2. A menu will appear. You can change the selected microphone or camera by clicking one of the devices listed in the microphone or camera section. 

Arrow pointing at the start of the microphone and camera sections

 

 

Turn off/on camera

1. Click on the camera icon to toggle between enabling and disabling the selected camera. If you see a white icon that says "Stop Video", that means your camera is currently turned on (image on the left). If you see a red icon that says "Start Video", that means your camera is currently turned off (image on the right).

Arrow pointing at "Stop Video"          Arrow pointing at Start Video

 

 

Turn off/on microphone

1. Click on the microphone icon to toggle between enabling and disabling the selected microhpone. If you see a white icon that says "Mute", that means your microphone is currently turned on (image on the left). If you see a red icon that says "Unmute", that means your microphone is currently turned off (image on the right).

Arrow pointing at Mute icon          Arrow pointing at Unmute icon

 

 

Blur video background/Remove blur from video background

1. Click on the "Settings" icon in the lower left hand corner of the window (while in a session).

Arrow pointing at Settings icon

 

2. Click on "Blur Video Background" to start blurring your video background (image on the left) or "Remove Video Background Blur" to stop blurring your video background (image on the right).

Arrow pointing at Blur Video Background           Arrow pointing at Remove Video Background Blur

 

 

A background blur will make your background indistinct. (If you are moving fast, there may be a slight delay as the blur catches up.)

Blur example

 

 

Dashboard button (minimize video)

1. Click on the "Dashboard" button at the bottom of the video window. 

Arrow pointing at Dashboard button

 

 

2. The video window will shrink up to the top of the page so that you can view your dashboard and navigate through the rest of your SecureVideo account. Click the Dashboard button again (now red) when you want to return the video window to its normal size.

Example of a minimized video 

 

 

Share Screen

1. Click the "Share Screen" button. 

Arrow pointing at the Share Screen button 

 

2. Select what you would like to share. 

  • Entire Screen: this will share the entire screen. (If you have multiple monitors, you can select which monitor to share.) This may be useful if you want to share multiple windows at a time and/or share from different programs at the same time. Please note that any desktop notifications appearing on the desktop you share will be shared as well.
  • Window: this will share the entire window selected. If it is a browser window, all tabs will also be shared.
  • Chrome Tab: this will share a single tab from the window you currently have open, without sharing the names or contents of any other tab, even if you click on another tab. 

Arrow pointing at the 3 options and the Save button

 

 

3. Use the "Stop Sharing" button to stop the share.

Arrow pointing at Stop Sharing button

 

 

Leave meeting/End meeting for all
