Co-presenting requires a lot of your connection and computer power, the audio and video of all presenters are streamed through the computer of the main presenter.

Make sure that you always have a test viewer at a dry run with co-presenters who can watch the test with you.

Most importantly, both presenters need to use Google Chrome as a browser (latest version) and close other programs during the live webinar.

The other system requirements for hosting a webinar can be found here.

Internet speed co-presenting

The required upload speed for broadcasting a webinar with multiple presenters multiplies with the number of presenters. The minimum required upload speed for the main presenter in a webinar with two to three presenters is about 375 kilobytes per second (3 Mbps).

Make sure you are connected to the internet through a cable. This ensures stability during the live broadcast, which is a must for hosting webinars. On the other hand, wifi is less reliable if it comes to stability.

Supported computers co-presenting

The main presenter's computer processes the video and audio of all presenters and keeps it running synchronously. In addition, it also receives your chat messages and other things. Processing video and audio is particularly demanding on your CPU / processor, so we recommend using modern computers to host your webinars.

As a rule for your device to be ‘modern enough’, we recommend the following:

  • A desktop computer that’s maximum 3 years old, or
  • A laptop that’s a maximum of 2 years old.

Supported operating systems co-presenting

For presenting a webinar, you’ll need:

  • Windows 10 or higher
  • Mac: OS X Yosemite 10.14 or higher
  • Linux: Ubuntu 10.04+, Debian 8+, openSUSE 13.1+ of Fedora Linux 21+
