JackTrip Virtual Studio Update 11/4/2022

What’s New?

  • JackTrip App v.1.6.6 now has volume controls
  • Register your personalized JackTrip Radio handles!

JackTrip App v1.6.6

The release of JackTrip App v1.6.6 is now live. In it we’ve added volume controls so you can adjust how loud you sound/hear. Additionally, there’s a mute toggle for your input to conveniently silence yourself if necessary.

Along with these controls, there’s also a “Test Output Audio” button that can be found in the “Settings” to make sure you’re getting sound out from the correctly selected output device:

Control Participants Volume

With the release of v1.6.6, studio admins can now control the input volume levels of anyone connected to your studio. As long as that user is joining with the latest v1.6.6 desktop client, you will see the following controls enabled in the “Participants” tab. All the more reason to upgrade!

Personalized JackTrip Radio handles

There are two main changes in JackTrip Radio broadcasting as part of this week’s updates.

First and foremost: under a new “Channels” tab of your studio, you can now customize the URL of your public JackTrip Radio broadcast. Make your channel standout with a fresh image and give it a friendly name to make it easier to remember and share!

This custom URL handle will be used for all public broadcasts you make and will be retained for as long as your studio exists. They’re globally unique, so hurry and reserve yours soon!

Along with the above, there is a large change with unlisted broadcasting: any unlisted broadcasts created from this point forward will be given a randomly-generated link. This is done to order to keep your unlisted broadcasts secure and detached from the public channel URL.

Happy JackTripping! :notes:
