OnSync 5.1.8 r23440
Select version
Released on 23 March 2018

5.1.8 is action packed with features for the upcoming html5 / webrtc releass. Sneak preview - we are gonna announce a brand new product name.

Feature highlights include dial-in from telephone, closed captioning, increased size of video thumbnails, interactive content in tiled view, drag and drop tiles by title bar to rearrange order, turn chat and QnA on/off, folder "unfolding" in media library - and so much more. Check out the full list below.

1. There is currently no way to reconnect in case of connection failure. The user has to refresh the browser in order for the UI to enable the "Connect" button again. In most cases, a connection failure is a result of invalid bridge data, so reconnecting will not solve the problem anyways. And in order to pull in new bridge data, we currently require all users to leave the room.

2. Audience users who join the session after the phone connection procedure has already run will not see the connection state reflected in the left bar icon.

3. Users are not shown the "phone connection failure" notification when the phone connection attempt fails. They will however see an indication of the failure in the phone icon state in the left bar, as well as in the "Manage Phone Connection" popup.

4. Auto-connection is not enabled by default. Speaker will have to use the "Manage Phone Connection" popup to initiate the phone connection.

5. The following use cases will fail:
a. connect phone > disconnect phone > start recording > "continue without bridge connection" > recorder error
b. connect phone > phone connect failure > start recording > "continue without bridge connection" > recorder error

6. When a recording is in progress, and you manually disconnect the phone connection, you are not given a warning that the phone audio will not be included in the recording.

Apart from that it works really well though ;) You can expect a fully working version with extended feature set in a few more weeks. And there will be a few more surprises to boot. See you soon.
