In Chrom, We choice a file (word, excel, ppt, ...) for presentation, when we minimize the window of the share file then the presentation is stop too. Is it correct behavior or not ?
I just tested this on the web app and when I minimize my screen that I'm presenting, it just shows the screen behind it, or the desktop if no window is behind the selected one for presenting.
Andy, I tested the Chrome app on a Windows PC and when I minimized the application that I was presenting, the far end was still receiving the presentation feed until I stopped presentation. Nikhil tested on Mac PC and got different results. We you using a Windows or Mac computer?
I tested in Windows 10 and Chrome with version 50.0.2661.94. It will stop presentation when I minimize the shared application. I was tested with Windows notepad, wordpad, word, excel, powerpoint, adobe reader that all will be stop presentation when minimize. But when I share application of Adobe Illustrator that didn't stop presentation even I minimize it. (This symptom also is happened in IE 11 beta)
This symptom is not happened on Mac.
I opened a ticket with LifeSize a while back about the same issue. I was told that CLOUD just shares the desktop and when you choose an application from the selector, it just makes it the active window on the presenters desktop. If you minimize the application, the far end will not continue to see the application, but will see what ever the presenter is viewing on their screen. So in short, just because you originally selected Word for example, does not mean that will be the only thing the far end would ever see. If you minimize Word to check your email for example, the far end will see it.
Also if your using office products prior to 2015, using the selector to switch between Excel workbooks can cause the far end to see a black window and you may see the transmit rate drop to 4kb/s. This is due to how Excel manages the workbooks. You can resolve this with a Microsoft patch, KB2636670.
I would be careful to not start a presentation, then minimize it thinking the far end can't see what your doing. Always just assume what ever you see on your screen, the far end can as well while presenting.
