When i'm connect to vMix call by default chat windows is open...

How to set for OFF chat window in browser on start call ?


Sometimes it’s very difficult for people who call to explain how to remove the chat window that covers part of the picture. Also, how to turn off the window for viewing your camera by default?

+1 for sure. I don't think there is currently a way to do it, but it would be great to be able to send the vmix.at link with a url parameter such as ?chat=off or something so chat would be closed by default on the client vmixcall browser session.

Absolutely +1 and also the option to hide the camera. If these could simply be URL parameters, that would be user easy to adjust before sending it out to a presenter.

+1 Absolutely!

Having the same issue here with this default. If you forget to explain to the caller how to remove the window, a lot of them just think the image is cropped and don't mention it. We had a whole client presentation with a lot of visuals and we only found out at close to the end, when the client mentioned he couldn't see a logo on the right side that I was talking about!
With the current COVID related explosion of remote presentations, do you think this small modification could be done quickly, as a patch? That would be a godsend ! :))

Best regards

We've just hidden the chat by default on a trial basis to see if this is what most users prefer.

Looking forward to trying it out today. Trying to explain to my parents how to turn off the chat window, after explaining that it's a chat window and not a broken feed, was ... difficult :)

+1 brilliant having chat window off. Can the camera start off by default or a URL that turns it off as suggested above.
