While TelSpanWeb is designed to use bandwidth efficiently, and even though it does try to degrade gracefully, it is still a broadband platform. For best possible and most reliable experience do not use WiFi equipment and use a high-grade, dedicated, low-latency broadband internet access. Use our System Check application to test your connection before attending a conference. Please consider packet loss, latency in round trips and jitter value of connections used.
This answer is based on the type of license you currently have. If you have a 25-seat license, then you can have 25 people in the webinar at a time. This includes you, your speakers, and audience members. If at any point you need more capacity, please contact us; firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 800-898-2315, and we will adjust the account license accordingly.

If a PPT/PPTX file either takes a long period of time to convert, does not upload, or they receive a message to “Convert File” after it went through the conversion process try the following. Check the title of the file to see if there are any symbols or if the title is excessively long. Re-title the file without symbols or shorten the file name and try to re-upload. Should this fail, convert the PPT/PPTX file to a PowerPoint Picture Presentation or PDF and then upload it. This solution is usually the quickest if the meeting is about to start or has started already. If the user continues to experience issues have them forward the file to firstname.lastname@example.org to troubleshoot.
HTML5 is a bit different from Flash and does limit the dynamic elements we are able to convert from the original media source. To keep these added elements, use the screenshare feature. Screensharing is an efficient way to share media rich applications and content. It will allow all transitions, animations, and even sound to play.
The presentation may have timings or automated animations built into the file. These must be removed from the file in PowerPoint and then re-uploaded into the Content Library.
You will need to check your internet connection. This is a sign that your connection has dropped or is very poor.
There are no additional downloads necessary to utilize the screen share function.
TelSpanWeb is firewall-friendly and attempts to pass through the firewall using 3 separate attempts. In the event that you receive an “Unable to Establish a Connection” error message, please verify that the internet connection is working properly. To check for issues, use the TelSpanWeb System Check http://web.telspan.com/systemcheck. If the system check fails in the Connectivity section, it is possible that the firewall is blocking access to TelSpanWeb which may require you to contact your IT department.
