When you are on a video call, if you place the mouse pointer over the video screen, a toolbar appears containing the following icons:
|See how you appear to the other video call participants (see Turn self-view on/off).|
|Turn the camera off/on (see Turn the camera on/off).|
|Turn the microphone on/off. When the microphone is off, you can speak privately to someone in your room without the other video call participants hearing.|
|Turn the speaker on/off. Turn the speaker off to mute the other video call participants. When the speaker is on, drag the slider to adjust speaker volume.|
|Turn full-screen view on/off. You can also switch views by double-clicking the video screen.|
|Share an application (see Share an application or your entire screen).|
|End the video call.|
When you are not on a video call, the toolbar displays only the and icons. The self-view window is displayed by default. Clicking to turn off self-view closes the video screen.
To hide the toolbar, move the mouse pointer away from it.
The self-view window lets you see how you appear to the other participants on a video call.
- During a video call, click . Self-view appears as a small window (known as picture-in-picture, or PIP) inside the larger video screen.
- (Optional) Do either of the following:
- To shift focus to and enlarge the self-view window: Double-click the window.

By default, the camera is on so other video call participants can see you. To turn the camera off, click .
If you turn the camera off before another participant answers the video call, the other participants see a blank screen for you. If you turn the camera off during a video call, the other participants see the last video image of you as a still image.
This setting does not affect the cameras of other participants.
To turn the camera back on at any time, click .
If another application is using the camera, you cannot use the camera to send video to other participants in a Jabber Video video call. However, you can still make and receive calls, and see video from other participants.
During a video call, you can share information from one or more applications on your computer. Here are some examples:
- Share your word processor and let video call participants see your meeting notes as you type.
- Share pictures from your computer as a slideshow.
- Share your image editor or other visualization tool, drawing as you go.
- Share your web browser, email inbox, or calendar.
- Windows: Share your entire screen with all open applications, for example, to demonstrate a process onscreen.
- Click on the toolbar. A list of your open applications appears.
- Select an application. Sharing starts automatically.
Windows: Select Entire screen to share all applications on your desktop.
Windows: If you choose to share your entire screen, we recommend minimizing the Jabber Video
screens, in particular the video screen. Otherwise, these are included in the shared presentation.
- The shared application appears to you as a picture-in-picture inside the video screen. Double-click the PiP to switch focus to it.
If you have limited bandwidth or system resources, turning off your camera during application sharing can improve presentation quality.
- To stop sharing, click , and then click Stop sharing presentation.
Windows: You can also share an application screen from within an application itself. Open the application and put it in full-screen mode (or slideshow mode for PowerPoint presentations). When a message appears asking whether you want to share the application using Jabber Video, click Yes. To stop sharing, exit full-screen or slideshow mode.
Mac: Other participants cannot see your cursor or mouse pointer when you share an application. Also, Mac OS does not support sharing your entire screen.
