How to Set Up Movi

Setting up your computer

Before you use Movi for the first time, you need to install the Movi software and get a Movi user ID. In addition, you need to ensure that you have the following devices and that they function properly:

  • A video camera: The built-in camera on your computer, or a third-party USB device such as the Cisco PrecisionHD.
  • A microphone: The built-in microphone on your computer or monitor, or a third-party USB device such as a headset or a desktop microphone.

  To set up your computer:

  1. Download the Movi software for PC or Mac and install it on your computer.
  2. Submit a HelpSU request for a Movi user ID and password. You will receive an email with a username, password, and an address that other people can contact you with through Movi.
  3. Launch the Movi application and enter your Movi username and password.

    logun with your Movi user ID and password
    login with your Movi username and ID
    This is the Mac interface.
    This is the Windows Movi login.

Connect and configure audio and video

  1. Connect your audio and video devices to your computer, if they're not already built in.
  2. Check your system settings to ensure that your audio input is from the correct source such as your built-in computer mic (often known as Line In), your headset, or an external USB microphone. Additionally, set your audio output for Line Out: your internal computer speaker, your headset, or external speakers.
