Connecting to Vidyo
- Using a computer
Make sure your computer has
- robust internet connection.
- microphone (echo-canceling best, noise-canceling good. Relatively new computers and software typically have these built in. But that can sometime be defeated by plugging in separate speakers or microphones).
- speakers with enough amplification that all in your room can hear.
