Frequently asked questions about Studio
What are the bandwidth requirements for Studio?
We recommend 20mbps for both upload and download speed. You can use fast.com to check your internet connection. See other technical requirements and recommendations.
If you can, you may want to try switching to a wired connection. If you are speaking or presenting at an event, check out our more in-depth guide.
Is Studio supported on iPads?
Studio is currently supported only on desktop Chrome-based browsers, such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge (79+), Opera or Brave.
Can I stream from an RTMPS endpoint into Studio?
Only webcams are supported as a video input for Studio. To add advanced graphics we recommend using RTMPS streaming and tools such as OBS.
How much does Studio cost?
Studio is available to all SpotMe Anywhere customers at no additional cost.
How many speakers can be in Studio at a given time?
Up to 9 speakers can be in the Studio at any time. Hosts and moderators count toward that limit.
What happens when a tenth speaker joins Studio?
The tenth person to join will receive an error message and will be prevented from joining. Hosts in the room will receive a notification.
How can I mute or unmute a speaker?
As a host, you cannot directly mute or unmute speakers to due technical and privacy limitations. You can however, use Studio to ask a speaker to mute/unmute themselves or start their camera. To do that:
- Click on the ... icon on the speaker thumbnail (in the Speakers section).
- Click on Ask to mute/unmute or Ask to start/stop webcam in the dropdown
After sending a request, the speaker will see a full-screen popup asking them to toggle their settings.
Can I play pre-recorded videos or run simu-live sessions?
Studio does not currently support playing pre-recorded videos with audio or running simu-live sessions. To do this you may want to use RTMPS streaming with 3rd party tools like OBS or StreamYard.
Alternatively, you can play pre-recorded videos via screensharing functionality but audio from the video won't be captured.
How can speakers and hosts while they are not on the video?
Currently we recommend using another chat solution alongside Studio if you need a way to coordinate your presentation between multiple stakeholders.
A built-in text chat for speakers, moderators and hosts will be available in early 2021.
How secure are Studio links?
Studio links for speakers contain a unique 32 character random token that identifies a specific room.
Unlike Zoom or other meeting software where tokens are 9-digit numeric codes, Studio links are not subject to Zoombombing.
