You might have noticed that since a few days we have upgraded the GMC chat!

We have added 2 way video chat, which we feel is a very important feature. It allows you to get direct feedback on your playing, in public or in private. It will also open up for various interesting interactive activities. Bogdan will soon post details on how this is done, but basically you need to click the camera icon.

We have also solved the following chat related problems:

* copy and paste is now possible
* you can now use the text chat from your smartphone
* we have added a countdown, to make it easier to understand the video chat session schedule
* it used to be difficult to follow a quick discussion, but you can now click "Open chat room in new window" and get a rezisable window

Check the new chat out here.

As usual we are very grateful for your general feedback and/or bug reports.

Hi guys - here are some details on how to use some of the chat new features :

How to start my video broadcast in the new chat?

1. Click on the "Publish My Video" icon here : http://screencast.com/t/wJuo5jlQmpFF
2. Allow the chat to access your camera and mic by clicking "Allow" here : http://screencast.com/t/mXSoYqUigieV
3. Enable your audio to allow others to hear you by clicking here : http://screencast.com/t/4r7S1bUHK4T

How to watch other students video in the chat?

To watch other students video in the chat, you need to click on the small webcam icon next to their name in the users list on the right, like this : http://screencast.com/t/B8Sv40c0A

Advanced options for audio setup :

1. If you wish to select a different audio source then your (Webcam) microphone, right click on your video window and go to "settings".
2. Click on the "Mic" setup tab and choose an audio source you wish to use from the drop down menu : http://screencast.com/t/PAXmmhv8N

Tips :

For best results we would recommend keeping your computer speakers on low volume or using headphones as that reduces the audio feedback. If you are watching several videos like instructor broadcast and student videos at the same time, we would suggest muting audio in other video sources and enabling it only on the 1 source that you are currently following, for example a student playing a solo, instructor explaining an exercise etc.

Muting of student audio (or adjusting its volume) can be done by clicking on this icon when hovering over their video window : http://screencast.com/t/p4Wf80PsM

Muting instructor audio (or adjusting its volume) can be done like this : http://screencast.com/t/GrOCYkle

Totally agree with Gary, biggest improvement ever biggrin.gif

The only downside is that now we all have to wear pants during the chat and have to clean up our room first laugh.gif

Seriously, that was a great idea Kris and Bogdan.

Exactly, I had to make my bed before the chat started! laugh.gif

I could shrink the video windows & see everyone who had their cameras on. Very cool feature! It is really great seeing the others playing the exercise. I'm sure the instructors are REALLY going to appreciate this feature.

Now I just have to get over the "stage fright" when I'm "on"! huh.gif

Loving the new features guys great job! biggrin.gif One thing that would be nice though is if we could drag a students video window out of the chat window, off to the side and out of the way of seeing parts of the chat. Is this possible?

Unfortunately - it is not possible to take the video window out of the chat widget, but what I would recommend it to use this feature : http://screencast.com/t/tMK53m3Ceg

It opens up the chat room in a new window (pop-up) and you can easily move it around, resize to any dimension.
That way it is easier to fit in more video windows if needed and still follow the chat.
