User rights

What are the user rights?

Here's a short explanation of user rights :

  • Each user got different rights over the room. You can see every user rights next to his name in the user list. If an icon is grayed out, it means that the user doesn't have this right (playback or chat).
  • As an administrator, you can grant or revoke rights of the room guests. You can also promote a guest to become an administrator, but be careful, you can't revoke this kind of rights when it has been given. Finally, you can ban a user from your room.
  • If you have playback rights, you can control the video. You can play, pause, rewind, forward and change the video at any time.
  • If you have chat rights, you can chat with the other users.
How can I become an administrator?

When you create your own room, you are by default set as the room administrator. If you joined an active room, the administrators are the only ones who can make you administrator or give you others rights.

What happen if an administrator leaves the room?

If no one else in the room has administrator rights, the oldest user in the room will be automatically promoted. If the former administrator rejoin the room, he won't have his administration rights anymore.
