== Vidyo ==

Users who need to communicate by video conference with CERN users have to use Vidyo instead of Seevogh. Vidyo is reported to work on Windows and Ubuntu notebooks or desktops.

Vidyo is working on SL6 systems as well.
The current version as of May 31, 2016 is 3.6.3. This version can be installed by users from the Gnome Menu.

There is an information page at CERN containing [[http://information-technology.web.cern.ch/services/fe/vidyo|news and resources]] related to Vidyo.
=== Vidyo installation procedure ===

==== SL6 ====

Please select from the desktop menu System->Administration->Add/Remove Software.

In the started application enter vidyo in the search field. The package VidyoDesktop should show up. Select the package and press Apply. After some time a window is popping up asking whether you want to run the application. No, you do not want it. Close the two windows.

=== Testing the setup ===
Yo can connect to the [[http://information-technology.web.cern.ch/services/fe/vidyo/howto/users-test-your-setup|Test Room at CERN]] to see whether your setup does work properly.

=== Configuration options ===
The default Vidyo installation will start the Vidyo client on login. A running client does show up on the desktop (status bar) as a grey (inactive client) or colored (logged in) cube. A right click lets you reach the configuration panel where you can choose the startup method and there is also the quit entry which ends the client.

=== Firefox and NoScript ===
If you are using Firefox with the No``Script extension, the ABE (Application Boundaries Enforcer) will prevent the web site redirection to the Vidyo client. To prevent this, you'll have to add a user defined rule. First, disable the SYSTEM rule, then add the following USER rule:
Accept from LOCAL
Accept GET from https://vidyoportal.cern.ch
