How to Make a Video Call with NetMeeting ?!

Posted by OurTech Team | Thursday, September 30, 2010 | Category: |

Receiving Video

To receive video, all of the following conditions must exist:

  • There must be a user capable of sending video.
  • The user capable of sending video must be sending video to you.
  • If you are receiving the video, the status in the video window should read "Receiving." If the status reads "Paused," you will not receive live video until you click the Play button to resume play.
To automatically receive video at the beginning of every call, follow these steps:



  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Video tab, click the Automatically receive video at the start of each call check box to select it.

Sending Video

To send video, all of the following conditions must exist:



  • You must have appropriate video hardware that is compatible with NetMeeting: a camera or a video capture board.
  • The user sending the video should see the "Sending" status in the My Video window. Video is not sent if the status is "Paused."
If you want to send video automatically at the beginning of every call, follow these steps:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Video tab, click the Automatically send video at the start of each call check box to select it.

Making an Audio and Video Connection

NetMeeting establishes a video connection automatically at the beginning of the call if the Automatically send video at the start of each call check box is selected.

If you are in a data conference and do not have an audio and video connection established, you can right-click a user on the Current Call tab, and then click Switch Audio And Video.

You can also click Switch on the toolbar, and then click to select the user with whom you want to establish an audio and video connection. Note that the Switch button is available only when the Current Call tab is selected.

NOTE: The Audio and Video switching feature has been removed in NetMeeting 3.0 included in Windows 98 Second Edition.
