At MyOwnConference, there are 2 variants of holding webinars. The first one is just using your web browser with no application installed locally, and the second one implies using a plugin to be downloaded to your computer. The second one is called Alternative technology.
Advantages of broadcasting using alternative technology:
- More stable connection even when the Internet connectivity speed is low
- Possibility to host webinars in case of failure to do so using your web browser (the WebRTC technology is blocked or non-working)
This guide offer steps to enabled Alternative technology.
