Computer Compatibility Requirements
- MacOS 10.14 Mojave and above

Compatibility Test for Webcam Users
Still unsure about your computer’s compatibility? You can test to see if your computer is compatible with the OR Capture 1.0 app, whether you’re a Subject, Collaborator, or Director. Feel free to send this link out ahead of time to your Subjects and Collaborators. https://remote.openreel.com/compatibility
You will need to give remote.openreel.com access to both your webcam & microphone in your browser. We recommend using the Chrome browser.
If for any reason you are not able to connect to a room as a director or collaborator, run a compatibility test on your computer to find out why.
