Avoid the Dreaded Unsupported File Type While Conferencing

Posted by Sabrina George on Fri, Apr 10, 2015 @ 10:20 AM

You’ve been trying to load a file into your conferencing platform for five minutes, but it just won’t work. You can hear tapping feet and sighs of frustration on the other end of the line as your colleagues become impatient awaiting the material. After some time, you give up and resort to email—a process that takes extra time--forcing attendees to leave their conferencing platform to obtain the file.   

An unsupported media type, be it audio, video, flash or image, is one of the most frustrating things that can happen during a Web conference. After all, time is valuable; in most cases, you only have an hour to make it through all points on your agenda. File transfers, therefore, must be seamless.

Using Onstream Meetings’ advanced conferencing platform, you’ll never have to worry about this problem. Onstream Meetings is equipped to handle the following types of file exchanges over its built-in conferencing resource library:

Audio:  Onstream Meetings supports basic MP3 and MP4 audio formats, as well as advanced audio coding (AAC) for higher-quality sound files. The platform can also receive 3GP and 3G2 for text and speech-based files on mobile devices.

Image: .JPEG and JPG files are both supported for easy image transfers, as well as PNG (Portable Network Graphics) for compressed images.

Flash: Onstream Meetings is equipped to transmit flash animations in the form of F4A, F4B, F4P and F4V. Flash animations are typically seen in animated logos, background images for websites and short cartoons.

Video: Share video files ranging from short Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) to longer M4A or M4V or MOV. Onstream is also capable of handling Small Web Format (SWF), a Shockwave Flash file extension.
