Re: Virtual Backgrounds

@PAI931  [Update]  This is now fully supported in desktop GoToWebinar environments.  Please keep in mind that there will be added CPU demand when creating a virtual background, so you may want to test the functionality while in session before you go live with an audience. 

 

Support documentation can be found here: https://support.goto.com/webinar/help/how-do-i-change-my-webcam-background

Re: Custom Background

There are other virtual meeting software that will allow you to do this, but GoTo does not. 

 

Some webcams come with software that allows you to add a background. There might be third-party software that will let you add a background to your webcam that could be seen by GoTo.

Re: Custom Background

I talked to Support earlier this week and was told that GoToWebinar has partnered with Chromacam.me . However, you have to purchase from Chromacam.me.  I contacted them, but it took 4 days for them to return my request for information. They do not offer a phone number on their site. GoToWebinar also offered SnapCamera.snapchat.com, but I thought that was too playful and not for professional use.

When can we expect virtual backgrounds in GTW?

Webcam background on GoToWebinar

Hi, 

 

I have had a request from a panelist at one of my webinars about whether they are able to change their webcam background on GoToWebinar like you can do on Zoom or Teams - does GoToWebinar webcam have this functionality? 

 

Thanks,

Libby

Re: Webcam background on GoToWebinar

GoToWebinar will use the Chromocam software. Please note that Chromocam has had several issues and updates, since we purchased it. It can be frustrating.

Re: Webcam background on GoToWebinar

@Golder  Sorry, can you say what issues you've experienced while integrating ChromaCam with your GoTo webcam feed?

Re: Virtual Backgrounds

We have had several clients request an integrated virtual background for GoToWebinar so much so there have been requests to switch to Zoom or WebEx Events.  I do not want to switch!  Unfortunately, the third party apps do not work for most of our panelists .  Does anyone have an update on the progress of adding one in GoToWebinar?
