Run a short test recording to ensure the full session goes smoothly. We especially recommend this if you have a first-time Guest or if someone is using a microphone or camera on Riverside for the first time.
This feature is in Beta and is being released gradually to all users.
Run a Test Recording
- Using a computer, join a Studio as a Host.
- Invite participants to join the Studio.
- At the bottom of the page, hover over the Record button.
- On the menu, click Run test recording.
- When the test recording ends, click each participant's video to review it.
- Click (Input & Output) to see each participant's
- selected camera and video resolution,
- selected audio input and frequency, and
- video frame rate.
- On the left, click Test again or End test.
Guests and Producers can also see the preview videos, but Producers are not recorded.
After reviewing the footage, you may want to make some of these adjustments:
- If you hear an echo:
- Turn individual Echo Cancellation on (usually for the participant who is not heard on the echo).
- If a participant sounds too loud or too quiet:
- Ask them to adjust their device's microphone input sensitivity.
- If a participant has a video that appears to lag:
- Lower the Studio's default video recording quality (its video resolution) to reduce the processing power required by their computer.
- If they are using a webcam, ask them to turn off its auto-exposure or auto-balance features. For example, with a Logitech camera, they can turn off auto-exposure in Logi Tune.
