Introduction to Screen Sharing
- Broadcast all or a cropped portion of your desktop to everyone in your room.
- Allow any other user in the room to broadcast their desktop.
- Users can see the broadcaster’s mouse cursor.
- Broadcast image will be auto-panned for users with smaller screens or lower screen resolutions.
- Use Vyew’s push-to-talk VoIP while sharing your desktop.
- Click the Screen Share tab.
- Click Start Sharing Screen.
- If a Java security pop-up appears, click Run. (Shown here is the pop-up on Windows 7. It may appear different on your computer.)
- The Vyew Screen Share applet will appear. You are now broadcasting. Select FullScreen or Crop mode.
Once your screen is sharing, you can minimize Vyew and navigate to any programs or websites you wish to show.
Take into account that there can be a 2 to 4 second lag between the image you broadcast and when it is received. Allow 3 or 4 seconds after screen changes when speaking. Also, move your mouse slower than normal to account for your viewers’ auto-panning.
- Click Stop Sharing when done.
If you want users to see only a portion of your screen, select Crop Mode.
You will then be presented with a screenshot of your desktop. Drag a box around the area you wish to crop and confirm the selection.
