Re: Play video embedded in PowerPoint and mix multiple computers and cameras to a GoToWebinar -

AshC

One more thing I forgot about...because I have to compile 3-5 videos into one video and now have multiple topics and multiple talking from my compiled video, I now have to take numerous screen shots at different points in the compiled video and cut and paste those screen shots into my PPT. Uploaded video only offers play and stop, no rewind...can you believe that. I have to cut and past because that is the only way to focus and discuss a particular point within the video. And...I have to generate talking points for each screen shot. Secondly, because a composite video now includes multiple topics, cutting and pasting gives me some chance (not enough) to keep my audience organized and on the same topic. Man-o-man is that labor intensive. It stinks and I'm doing the best I can putting a square peg into a round hole. Again...this isn't something anyone should expect from a professional business solution company.

Re: Play video embedded in PowerPoint and mix multiple computers and cameras to a GoToWebinar -

This was accepted as a solution a bit too soon.  Have not been able to connect the ATEM Mini to either GoToTraining or GoToMeeting.  I'm not a GoToWebinar subscriber.  Have tried two different computers - 1 that installed all of the ATEM driver software, and one that had not.  Both systems see Blackmagic Design as a webcam option, but neither work.  Just a black circle with a rotating flower of infinite waiting.

 

If anyone has had success, please speak up.  I'm headed to support to see what can be done.

Atem Mini - with GTW / GTM

Hi everyone,

 

I am doing some tests with Atem Mini and GTW, but the video is croping in the VC with the same  changing the formats 4:3 / 16:9.

 

I had been contact Black Magic support for try to understand what can be genereting this issue.

 

Please, someone have some idea?

 

FIY

Atem Mini works with 1080p native resolution and seting up Cam Twist with 720p of resolution solved the issue, but Cam Twist generated a poor quality of video.

Re: Atem Mini - with GTW / GTM

 I did a test  to see if th ATEM Mini worked, but did not pay attention to the cropping. I'll set it up again and run a full webinar.

 

Are you doing this on a Mac or on Windows?

 

Have you seen my ATME Mini writeup here?  https://community.logmein.com/t5/GoToWebinar-Discussions/Play-video-embedded-in-PowerPoint-and-mix-m...

Somone on that other discussion tried it on Windows and could not get the ATEM Mini to work with GoTo at all.

I'll look at the overscan issue sometime soon.

Same issue as above regarding the Mini not showing footage, only a spinning wheel as GTW tries to find the feed. 

Any luck or updated software from GTW?

No fix that I'm aware of.  I had to change vendors.  I'm not going to promote anyone specific, but every other vendor I tried worked effortlessly with the ATEM.

 

GoTo support told me I had to go to a professional networking specialist to make changes to Win10 registry files to make my system compatible with GoTo.  Switching vendors was a lot easier and cheaper.

Re: Play video embedded in PowerPoint and mix multiple computers and cameras to a GoToWebinar -

In all my forum research, the ATEM Mini will only work with GTW or GTM with a Mac, albeit a potentially cropped image. 
Blackmagic says all they are doing is providing a signal and it is up to the software to accept that. 
Every other service recognizes the ATEM Mini except GTW/GTM.
LogMeIn says it is too "Professional" and say you need to change some settings that most IT teams won't make. 

@AshC  are there any plans for LogMeIn to update the software for GoToWebinar or GoToMeeting to accept what is becoming a wildy popular and powerful piece of equipment? 
Please tell us this is in the works... maybe post-pandemic.

Re: Play video embedded in PowerPoint and mix multiple computers and cameras to a GoToWebinar -

OK. The majority of my spring presentations are over; now have to get ready for my summer presentations. I haven't heard from LogMeIn wrt LogMeIn solving my PowerPoint embedded video problems and the problems that were spawned from that. LogMwIn said there were working on a "fix" but I've heard nothing, even after repeated requests. Time to move on. Checking out other Webinar business solution providers. First up...Zoom. Signed up for an account a few days ago. Started playing around with it and so far it seems like it might work. The biggie....my MAJOR PPT embedded video problem seems to be gone (Great!!). PPT embedded video seems  to play well (video and audio). The video is smooth, not choppy.There is an about a one quarter to one half second delay between the presenter and the participant. That's not a big deal to me and is a great trade for improved video quality. Control panel is about the same as LOGMeIn and its intuative enough for an easy and acceptable transition. I thought LogMeIn's response to my problem was terrible and indicative of their lack of interest in keeping their small business Customer base.
