most of our conferences are 1:1 sessions. We feature a custom firefox browser warning, but still many people use firefox. If one participant uses firefox, videoquality is very poor. Disabling simulcast seems to significally improve videoquality for both users (at least with low bandwidth)
Do I understand the concept of simulcast correct if I assume, that with 1:1 conferences simulcast is unnecessary?
Is there a way to disable simulcast when there are only two participants?
Thank you for your answer.
Doesn’t the adaption to low bandwidth get handled by the adaptive abilities of JVB anyway?
Since nearly all of our sessions are 1:1 and “testing evidence” shows significant improvement for firefox users without simulcast, we are inclined to turn it off.
But we don’t know wether there are any pitfalls that might make it a bad idea to do so. I did read quite some resources about simulcast, but still don’t know.
Unfortunately not. Unknown (to us) not technically experienced users with high privacy concerns and little flexibility.
We tell them not to use firefox and give them information about more privacy concerned chromium browsers, but things like that usually don’t help much.
