Technical Information:

The meeting via Microsoft Teams will work best, if you have the Microsoft Teams App on your device. You can download Microsoft Teams via the meeting link. See here the description.  However, the internet browsers Google Chrome, Opera, Microsoft Edge, and Safari also work without downloading the App. With Safari the connection with your webcam might not work perfectly. While connecting with Teams, you just have to insert your name and allow camera and microphone on your browser.

Experiencing bad internet connection: Turn off all mailing programs, browers etc. If your connection doesn’t allow the videos to be played in a good quality, you can also see the talks via the YouTube-links in the program below. When watching the talks via YouTube you can mute Microsoft Teams for your convenience without leaving the event: Device Settings -> Mute Speaker. When joining via internet browser, you can mute the active tab of the browser: Ctrl+M
