System Requirements

myViewBoard.com is accessible from any web browser, but works best with Chromium-based browsers:

For best performance, we recommend Chrome browser (or a Chrome-based browser). myViewBoard uses WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) to achieve screen sharing across various platforms such as Chromebook, Windows, and macOS. Currently, this can only be supported on Chrome.
Microsoft Edge also fully supports myviewboard.com. Edge is built on the same Chromium platform as Google Chrome.
To use additional features, install the myViewBoard Extension for Chrome. This extension is available on the Chrome web store. This can also be manually installed to Microsoft Edge.
Non-Chromium browsers like Opera and Firefox are not optimal for myviewboard.com. The share screen function is not supported in these browsers.

To properly access the myViewBoard ecosystem (including companion apps) on you network, request your IT department to open the following ports:

  1. TCP Port 443 (HTTPS): outbound
  2. UDP and TCP port 3478 bidirectional to the WebRTC server
  3. UDP Ports 50,000 – 65,535 (RTP/sRTP/RTCP) bidirectional to the WebRTC peers
    These ports are optional; if blocked, media will be proxied using TURN on port 3478.

The WebRTC protocol is actively used in screen sharing. Verify that these ports are open on your network firewall.

To check your connectivity status, visit: https://myviewboard.com/cast2/test/index.html
