using "my video" during remote control?

Is there a way to use "my video" during a remote control-session? For example if I start a session I want to introduce myself and give the others a look at me.

Re: using "my video" during remote control?


Yes, this is possible.

When you are in the remote control session, you can click in the TeamViewer connection tool bar on Communicate and so you can choose VideoVideo in RC Session.png

The video panel is in the other TeamViewer panel on the right side of your screen. You can also drag it out of the panel into your scrren to enlarge the video. 

Activate the transmission of the video by clicking on the video icon:

Note: You cannot activate the video of your connection partner. He needs to activate his video on his own (privacy protection).

I hope, this information is helpful.

Best, Esther
