Your input source menus are available regardless whether a Web RTC call is active or not.
Audio Output Source's device menu, on the other hand, will only populate while a call is active.
The Broadcast to Others menu controls whether or not you broadcast Video and Voice, Video only, Voice only, or Nothing(disable) to other players in the game.
If you’re lacking a webcam or microphone device, you typically don't need to change these broadcast setting for Web RTC to work; however, it can help speed up the initial connection process to other players if you specifically tell Roll20 to skip over attempting to connect to a device that is not available.
It will activate the browser's default speaker choice (which is often dictated by your Operating System) initially, but then populate the option menu to every speaker device available.
This device menu selection ONLY takes into account the voice audio received through Web RTC.
The very first option here is a drop down menu labeled Chat Tech:.This will force Roll20 to skip attempting to locate and activate a webcam that doesn’t exist on your device.Another example would be if you are player with a limited internet connection.There are not many people online on here but you can still find some friends if you would like chat on silent chat rooms.It’s a free servcice and no registration required at all. The Receive From Others menu controls whether or not you will receive Video and Voice, Video only, Voice only, or Nothing(disable) from other players, if they are broadcasting at all.If you want to disable Web RTC entirely for you personally, adjust Broadcast and Receive settings to Nothing(disable).Roll20’s in-browser video and voice feature doesn’t require any plugins or widgets to install in order to use your microphone/webcam to communicate with other players in a game.Instead, we utilize a component, called Web RTC (Web Real-Time Communication), to natively run in your Chrome or Firefox browser.If for some reason a dialog box does not appear or if you wish to change your device settings after the game has started, click on the Red Camera or Microphone icon in the address/search bar to remove the permissions (click on the X beside each device).A browser tab refresh will bring back the permission dialog box to allow you to change your devices.
