Changing your main view

If you are joining someone else's conference, the conference can have two components – conference video and the Presenter's screen share. This section describes how to change what's shown in the main view.

A Collaboration conference on an iPhone or an Android phone can display either the Presenter's shared screen or the conference video. If the conference has both screen share and video, you can swap between them during the conference. If the conference has only video or screen share, the active component is displayed.

A Collaboration conference on an iPad or Android tablet can display both screen share and video – one in a main view and one in an inset view. You can swap the video and screen share between the full screen and the inset view. The inset view can also be moved around the screen to improve the viewing experience. If the conference has only video or screen share, the active component is displayed in the main view and no inset window appears.

If the conference is audio only, a white screen appears in the main view.

Changing your main view - Windows and Mac

Use the icons on the side toolbar to change the main view.

Changing your primary view – iPhone and Android phone

When Bria is running on an iPhone or on an Android phone, you only see either the screen share or the conference video. Use the Screen share view and Remote video view buttons to swap the view.

On an Android Phone, the Screen share view and Remote video view buttons can be moved around the screen.

If the conference does not have both screen share and video, you do not see the Screen share view and Remote video view buttons.

Swapping your main view – iPad and Android tablet

On an iPad or an Android tablet, you can show or hide the screen share and video, as well as swap the main view. Bria running on an iPad or an Android tablet uses icons on the side toolbar to change your main view.

Adjusting the screen share view

The screen share on a mobile device may be difficult to see. To improve the view, you can zoom in and out, and you can move the screen share around your screen when screen share is your main view.

There are two modes for viewing screen share on Android phone – zoom mode and control mode. In zoom mode, you can adjust the screen share image on the phone. Tap In control mode, you can access the collaboration toolbar and the call controls.

Use the following gestures to adjust the screen share view:

  • Pan: A gesture used to move an image around your screen. Move your finger across the screen to pan the image.
  • Pinch: A gesture used to decrease the size of images on touch screen devices. Place two fingers on the screen and move them together
  • Stretch: A gesture used to enlarge images on touch screen devices. Place two fingers on the screen and separate them.

When you are in zoom mode on an Android tablet, you cannot access the call controls. Tap Switch Media - Call Controls to exit zoom mode.
