Re: Virtual Webcam Background

Hi @AshC  - thank you for the link.  I have downloaded the software.  I have questions however. 

Is there a way of only downloading this application just once and bringing in the backgrounds into GoToWebinar for the panelists/co-organisers to choose a background within the system? 

 

Or does everyone need to download their own copy, some colleagues/external speakers may not be able to do this? 

 

I also note that many of the backgrounds required a paid licence, which is unfortunate.

 

Is there a way of bringing this facility within the GoToWebinar system in one place?  Perhaps this is the case already, and I am missing something?

 

Many thanks for your help with this.

Re: Virtual Webcam Background

@Rach1  Attendees do not need to download Chromacam. 

 

There may be additional benefits to paid subscriptions, but you do not need one for the functionality here.  You should be able to use your own pictures as backgrounds. 

 

I haven't heard of any developments to add backgrounds to the GoTo webcam functionality, but we'll update the Community should a timeline become available.

Re: Virtual Webcam Background

Dear @AshC 

Thank you for your update. I will investigate the personalised backgrounds in the app.

It would be ideal if the background functionality could be incorporated within the system.  This would eliminate the need for panelists, external speakers, etc having to download the software themselves, some may not be permitted to for instance.

Please keep me posted if this can happen in the future.

Best wishes
