Digimeet Technical Requirements

Hardware requirements

Browser : Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, Safari

Operating system : Mac OS X, iOS, Microsoft Windows, Android, Linux

Devices : PC, Mac, Mobile Phone, Ipad or any tablet devices

Internet speed requirements

For users : We recommend users have (at least) 0.5 Mbits/sec – which is 500 Kbits/sec – upstream bandwidth, and (at least) 1 Mbits/sec download bandwidth. The upstream bandwidth is the amount of bandwidth their computer has available to transmit data to the Digimeet server.

These are not hard and fast numbers, as it depends on the activity of the viewer. If the viewer is not broadcasting any webcam, the amount of upstream bandwidth used would be less than 0.5 Mbits/sec.

For presenters : For presenters, we recommend as much upstream bandwidth as possible. For example, if the presenter shares their desktop, then Digimeet’s desktop sharing will attempt to publish their desktop updates as quickly as possible to the server.

Ports which need to be open

(If you have a firewall on your network)

What ports must be open for external users to connect to Digimeet?

For TCP ports, clients must be able to connect to the Digimeet server on port 80/443 (HTTP/HTTPS), 7443 (audio), and 1935 (RTMP).

For UDP ports, clients must be able to connect on a port within the range 16384-32767 for WebRTC-based audio.

 

Annotations :

For bandwidth, we recommend 1Mbits download and 0.5 Mbits upload speed. Users can test their actual bandwidth using speedtest.net.

For hardware, we recommend a dual-core CPU with at least 2G of memory. We recommend any operating system capable of running the latest versions of Google Chrome and Mozilla FireFox.

For browser, We recommend running either FireFox or Chrome. Why? Both browsers provide excellent support for web real-time communications (WebRTC). Safari, IE, and Edge will work as well, but FireFox and Chrome will deliver better audio in lower bbandwidth conditions.

In short, if the user is having any problems (such as audio is garbled or they are periodically getting disconnected), we recommend trying either FireFox or Chrome. If the problems persist, it’s likely an issue with their network. Digimeet will give them notifications to help troubleshoot.

If the presenter needs to share their desktop, then we recommend running FireFox.
