Microphone & Webcam
You must accept the webcam use as well as microphone use by the browser. If you refuse, you may need to use an incognito window to re-trigger the prompt. You will need to adjust your microphone settings inside your chosen browser prior to entering the game.
You can switch these settings during the onboarding process, however this requires a refresh of the browser
In Mac OS in particular, we find that sometimes the webcam can not be found. This is typically fixed by rebooting the computer.
On Windows OS, you can not share the webcam with another application. This includes a Zoom application that may be running in the background even if not connected to a room.
We recommend that you attend Go Remote events on a laptop or desktop computer. Mobile devices, including phones and tablets, are not generally recommended. The use of mobile devices will result in degraded attendee experiences, and may prevent attendees from joining at all, depending on the device, its age, etc.
If using a mobile device as a last resort, we recommend using the following browsers:
- Chrome on all Android devices
- Safari on all Apple devices (including iPhones and iPads)
VPN or Firewall
In rare cases, your company VPN or Firewall security settings may prevent your computer from accessing our video conferencing system, known as Twilio. To troubleshoot:
- Try connecting with VPN off
- Try connecting on another network, perhaps through a phone hotspot
- Contact IT department to whitelist Twilio server. We are using the gll, or Global Low Latency server, which means ALL servers need to be on the whitelist.
Whitelist (or have your tech team whitelist) the following domains prior to your event:
