We've published our 2nd edition today; please have a peek and get involved (see last section :).

And if you want to be added to the list to receive this by email let Diane know (diane@mozilla).

Vidyo 3.0 Portal upgrade is now live!

The latest version of Vidyo Desktop (3.0.4) has been pushed to the Vidyo Portal (see [1] for new features). That means the next time you open the Vidyo Desktop client, you’ll be prompted to update to the latest version - please select “Update Now”. The download will start and you’ll see a confirmation message when it's done installing. You will then need to enter your LDAP password to log into the new client to complete the setup process.

Please note all Vidyo calls are now managed through the Vidyo Desktop client (by clicking on the Vidyo icon on your desktop) and are no longer managed through the web portal (https://v.mozilla.com).

Thanks again to all who provided feedback over the past couple months to help test and provide feedback on version 3 of Vidyo Desktop.

Some Notes:

  • [1] Support Documentation: https://mana.mozilla.org/wiki/display/SD/Vidyo+Desktop+3
  • Linux Users: The update will only download the client to the home directory, but you will need to install the package manually to update.
  • Ample notice will be provide before v2 of Vidyo Desktop is no longer supported.
  • If a direct download of the Vidyo client is needed, browse to https://v.mozilla.com


If you have any questions or run into any issues, please reach out to ServiceDesk:

IRC: #servicedesk Phone: x7911 eMail: servicedesk@mozilla.com


MozConf QR.jpg

Conference Room Survey QR's are coming! (and we want YOUR feedback!)

Coming to a conference room near you will be QR codes that when scanned open a quick Google survey for feedback on your conference room experience. The QR codes are readable on any smartphone with a QR scanner installed. EUS wants to make sure your conference room experience is the best it can be, and giving us feedback is key.

Speakers

The limit is 3 minutes per speaker. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation. If you plan on showing a video, you need to contact the Air Mozilla team before the day of the meeting or you will be deferred to the next week.
