Zoom Teleconferencing Software
SEGL TV is powered by teleconferencing software called Zoom. You do not need to sign up for Zoom or install the Zoom software to participate in our conversations, though there are a few limitations if you do not–namely, you will only be able to see the hosts during the conversation. If you do not want to sign up for and install Zoom, skip down to the appropriate instructions below.
Smartphone: To participate in a show using a smartphone (Android or iOS), install and sign up for Zoom using the app on your phone. Go back to your phone’s browser, and click the “Join the Conversation” logo above. It will open Zoom on your phone and take you directly to the conversation.
Computer: To participate in a show using a computer, you can sign up for and install Zoom here. If you already use Google products (like GMail), you can sign up using the “Sign In with Google” button. Once you’re done, click the logo above, and install Zoom using the “download and run Zoom” button. It will then take you to the conversation.
If you do not want to sign up for and install Zoom: Click the logo above, then click “start from your browser.” It will look like the image below. Then, enter your name in the correct prompt. No need to install Zoom!
Using Zoom: Once you’re in the conference room, you’ll receive a prompt to “Join Audio by Computer.” Click that link.
If you are using a web browser, Zoom will now ask to access your microphone. Allow it to do so by clicking “allow” on the prompt that appears. Now, click on the camera in the lower left hand corner. Zoom will now ask to access your webcam; allow it to do so. You should only have to do this once:
Your microphone will be muted once you enter the conversation, but the hosts and the other guests will be able to see you. You may turn your webcam off by clicking the camera in the lower left hand corner again. If a host has invited you to speak during a conversation, you’ll need to turn your microphone on by clicking the microphone button, also at the lower left corner of your screen.
