ConnectWise Control View does not work on S20s

Andoni Usubiaga 1 month ago updated by Dee Cater (Product Marketing Manager) 2 weeks ago 3

When I try setting up ConnectWise Control View, it does not work on S20s. I get an error message "Error requesting your camera/microphone: Could not Start video source". I get the same error message on chrome, edge and samsung internet.I have in each app allowed permissions for camera and microphone but i have no luck. i tried this with multiple s20's and they have the same issue. It works on our s10's and iphones. My s20 is up to date and i have restarted my phone multiple times. I also tried wiping the cached partition. I am registering an external Bug report on this issue. So when devs create the internal issue, support can have them link it.

ConnectWise View - Launch View Required Permissions?

Max 2 years ago 0


I can launch ConnectWise View from my browser (option is available), however other users inside of my ConnectWise Console cannot (No Option Available). What permission level does a user need to create a View Session? It would be nice to have a toggle box for this permission so it can be assigned to non-technical user accounts that just need this feature.

Taking a snapshot freezes the video feed

Simon (Annet) 4 months ago updated 2 weeks ago 3

Whenver I take a snapshot, the video feed freezes both on the operator's side and the cameraperson's side.

Then, after a few moments, the operator's screen shows "negotiating connection with cameraperson".

Then, after that, "the cameraperson has left the session" even though the smartphone browser shows it's still streaming (albeit frozen).

So, ultimately, taking a snapshot terminates the feed.

Edit #1: I've done more testing and it appears that taking colorful snapshots freezes the feed, but taking bland ones does not.

By "bland" I mean something like the image I've attached at the bottom of this post.

The smartphone is an iPhone 11 on the latest iOS using Safari.

Edit #2: After more testing, it seems I can take snapshots without any hitches if I switch to low resolution.

So I should redefine the bug as: "on the default high resolution, taking all but the most bland snapshots freezes the feed".

SOS tool / Desktop Client

Lee Conway 1 year ago 0

Since I upgraded to 19 the desktop Client which was working great and the SOS tool have both stopped working.

Both were great for adding to users desktops rather than relying on the web browser.
