How much bandwidth do I need for ClickMeeting?

The free trial account allows you to host events with one additional presenter. This means that there are two camera feeds (as well as two seats) available for the organizer of the event and the presenter.

Paid accounts allow you to have up to 8 video camera feeds during a webinar and 25 video camera feeds during a meeting.

ClickMeeting works with all laptop built-in cameras and most of the webcams. A more advanced or professional camera may need installing additional software or hardware and must be consulted with our Sales Team. To test the camera compatibility, we recommend creating a free trial account.

You can purchase up to 14 presenter seats; however, only up to 8 presenters will be able to turn on their microphones and cameras during a webinar. Please note that additional presenter seats are available only during webinars, not meetings. To ensure the optimum stream quality, we recommend that each event participant use a separate network.

To achieve the best possible video quality, each event participant should make sure they have a strong and stable Internet connection. It is best to use a private WIFI or an Ethernet Cable and keep unnecessary apps from running in the background while hosting an event. Same goes for unnecessary browser tabs and windows.

Please postpone any updates and avoid uploading/downloading large files.

Feel free to test your microphone and camera by running an AV test in the account panel (for hosts) or in email invitations (for attendees).
