  • Hi, we are starting to use BBB, still in experimental level. One thing I noticed is that when a meeting is recorded, the audio part takes a lot of disk, sometimes up to 10 times the space used for video. Is there any possibility to set BBB to use some compression capable format? I understand
  • Hi Nicholas, Polling is only available to the current presenter. If you have joined as a moderator, you can make yourself presenter by clicking the icon to the left of your name in the User's list. Otherwise, another moderator can make you presenter by doing the same for you. Regards,... Fred

  • I do not know. Moderator said that Record button was start and stop. Can I check it after the end of the webinar? Can I do something, if the button is not pressed? There is one thing: The webinar was not completed. But the recording is stopped (not sure). After a while the server is hung and began
  • Hi Makkunty, The 'R' is actually for whether the meeting was marked for recording. Was the meeting set to be recorded? Did a moderator press the Start/Stop Record button to specify segments of the recording to be processed into a playback file? Regards,... Fred On Thu, Oct 20, 2016 at 2:18

  • If the connection is timing out that means it's not getting to the BBB server so I would recheck the networking setup. If the request was reaching the server you would see either "Welcome to nginx" or the BBB landing page. On Monday, October 17, 2016 at 5:44:08 PM UTC-4, Jack Massalski wrote: > >
