Note: This article contains illustrations. You may need to refresh your browser to render them viewable.
To enable WebRTC in a Meeting, make sure the the option Enhanced Audio/Video Experience is selected in Adobe Connect Central under the Meeting information:
In a WebRTC-enabled Adobe Connect Meeting, the Camera Video Pod offers the following details about the performance of the stream.
- For the video publisher it is FLBR referring to Frame rate, Packet loss, Bitrate, and Round Trip Time or RTT).
- For video subscribers it is FLDB referring to Frame rate, Packet loss, Packet Drop, Bitrate.
- Packet drop is relevant only to the downstream subscriber
- That is why the data is different for the publisher verses the subscriber
When an Adobe Connect Meeting Host first opens a Meeting room, the numbers will all read zero. Performance data only appears when a participant joins the Meeting. This corresponds with the data offered by the Meeting Bandwidth indicator:
When you click on the bandwidth indicator with the camera off in a WebRTC enabled Meeting, then you will only see a general status.
For details on bandwidth and latency in this case, you may refer to the Adobe Connect Meeting Application logs on the client in the Documents folder.
