6. Points to keep in mind

  • Cisco WebEx watermark would be displayed at the top left corner while streaming into the Airmeet session and can’t be removed as WebEx Meetings and Events provide it by default.

  • There would be a latency of about ~15-20 seconds between the sent and received streams.

  • If the input stops midway during a live session, it will freeze at the last frame.

  • If multiple sessions in an Airmeet are being streamed via RTMP, each will have a different stream key & URL. (in the case of multiple meetings or events hosted on WebEx).
