Frequently Asked Questions

General requirements

What devices does RealBridge run on?

RealBridge runs on any laptop, desktop computer or tablet that supports video calling from a web browser.

What browser should I use?

On Windows or linux PCApple macOS or Android tablet you can use any modern browser, such as Chrome, Edge, Firefox or Safari. (Note: older versions of Edge and Internet Explorer do not work.)

On an Apple iPad you must use the Safari browser, because Apple does not allow other browsers to support video calling on iOS.

How fast an internet connection do I need?

RealBridge requires around 0.5 Mbps of download and upload bandwidth for video. If you have a weak connection you can turn off your camera and/or the incoming video to reduce bandwidth requirements.

 

Cameras

Do I need a webcam?

RealBridge does not require a webcam to run; you can play without being connected on video or audio calls. However, without video, the experience is compromised. RealBridge works perfectly with inexpensive webcams, which are widely available online.

How do I check my camera is working?

Visit the RealBridge Camera and microphone test page to troubleshoot video and audio issues.

 

Social Bridge
