Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Does it work on Internet Explorer on my PC?
Our Webcamconsult service is (on PC) optimized for usage with newest verions of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox; next to that for Apple iPhone and iPads (through our app) and all recent Android phones and tablets. For most recent versions of Internet Explorer (11 +) we offer a plugin that automatically pops up as soon as an online consult is initiated.
Many (health) organisations still use older versions (version 10 or lower) of Internet Explorer, which prevents our advanced video communication. As an alternative we offer our desktop app, a simple Windows programm that gives you access to the home screen of the Webcamconsult dashboard and enables you to do your video consults. Click on the orange download button on the right side, after download you click on start (execute) that starts the installation.
