It's best to familiarize yourself with the webinar studio where you will be broadcasting your webinar from. This is also where you will be setting up polls and offers, upload slides, and inserting videos ahead of time for your live webinar.
Entering the studio
Step 1: Click My Webinars on the left menu. You will be taken to the My Webinars page.
Step 2: Find the webinar to which you wish to enter. For live and hybrid webinars, click the blue Enter Studio button to the right.
For automated webinars and webinars in a series, click Show All then click the play button to the right of the individual webinar.
Step 3: Set up your camera and microphone with WebinarNinja.
If this is your first time entering the studio, your internet browser may ask you for permission to access your mic and camera. Once that's granted, you can check your camera, microphone, and speakers in the studio settings window.
- Check your microphone with the volume meter. You'll want to make sure your volume level peaks at around 40-60%.
- Click the Test button to check your earphones or headset.
- Finally, check your camera with the preview window.
Step 4: When your devices are good to go, click Enter The Studio.
