„ Host Controlled
The standard setting for meetings, requires a Host to manually play the videos / webcams for the specific
meeting. Useful when the meeting is used for a number of purposes and you don't always want the videos
to play automatically when people join.
„ Always On For Hosts And Presenters
Whenever a Host or Presenter joins (or gets promoted), the video will be automatically played. However,
a Host will still have to manually play any Participant's video.
„ Always On For Everyone
Configures the specific meeting so that all videos / webcams are played when anyone joins the meeting.

A Host can change the resolution (size) of the videos either for everyone in the meeting or just for a specific
individual. This can sometimes be useful if you want to have larger or better quality videos. As a rule of thumb,
the higher the video resolutions, the more bandwidth you will use.
OmniJoin uses the resolutions that the webcam or video device provides and as such - can support
resolutions up to High-Definition (HD)!

OmniJoin provides a great deal of flexibility and control with videos in a meeting and also offers several
'presets' for video quality - Low, Medium and High. The higher the video quality, the more bandwidth is used.
A Host may want to change the video quality to free up bandwidth. This can (in extreme cases) help improve
audio quality if a attendee's internet connection is poor.

If you are intending to use external speakers and a microphone in a web meeting, we recommended you
configure your audio as described in this article.

Layouts
2
Depending on the type of meeting you are in, you may want to change the layout to suit your requirements.
A great example is using the "Video only" layout, when all you're after is a video meeting call with other
colleagues.
Meeting Layouts
2
2
Overview...
2
You can change the layout of the meeting by selecting the Layout tab and clicking any of the layouts provided.
"Style 1" is the standard layout in OmniJoin.
The following article will guide you through how to change the layout and what they're often used for.
Step-by-Step...

While in an OmniJoin meeting...
Select the Layout tab
Select a Layout style
My Video and Share Layout
2
„ Style 1
The standard (or default) layout in OmniJoin and is typically the most common and versatile for most
people's needs. Any live videos, chat conversations and the user list will be displayed on the left with any
shared material on the right.
„ Style 2
Essentially a mirror of the "Style 1" layout; where you have any live videos, chat and user list on the righthand side, with any shared files appearing on the left.
„ Style 3
Aligns all live webcams / videos horizontally across the top of the screen with any chats (if used) and the
user list on the right-hand side. Any files that are being shared will be shown underneath the horizontal
videos.
„ Webinar
Similar to the traditional broadcast or seminar - this layout will hide the user list and will just display any
live videos or webcams and the shared application, PowerPoint®, document or media file.
154
OmniJoin Meeting
„ Share Only
Will hide all videos, chats, the user list and will only show what is currently being shared.
NOTE: Floating videos will not be hidden; only the video panel will be hidden.
2
„ Video Only
Useful for the more traditional video meeting calls, when you're not interesting in collaborating or sharing
files. Only videos / webcams will be shown in the meeting (and audio - if enabled and unmuted).
„ Full Screen
Will maximize the OmniJoin meeting to the full size of your screen.
My Video Layout
2
„ Best Fit
The Best Fit video style is generally the standard video layout and suits most needs. It will automatically
resize the videos as people join or leave the meeting.
„ Tabs
With a tabbed video style in use, it will only display one video at a time - depending on what video tab is
selected. Useful if you're in a meeting where everyone needs to give an update to the group or team. The
Host of the meeting can switch between the videos depending on who's speaking / presenting.
„ Floating
If you want to float all videos on your screen - to have the flexibility to resize them or move them around;
you can select the Floating video style.
„ Picture in Picture
Choose an attendee to be the larger "active" video and all other live videos will automatically appear inset,
in the bottom-right corner.
„ Composition
A fantastic style for videos where you want the main Host or Presenter of the meeting to be the larger
"active" video. All other videos will then be neatly arranged around the edge.
