Thanks. I'll wait to see that before commenting further.

My mistake.

I am not limited to one concern 😊

However, what I was asking about was:

1. Can I run multiple streams at once on one laptop (without setting up multiple VMs)? I suspect that I can do this with Meetecho, but I'd like to know for sure that the technology will support it and there won't be any gates that prevent my magic registration ID being in two parallel sessions at the same time.

2. Are there any assumptions about the platform that a user must have access to in order to run Meetecho and so participate? In particular, have we raised the bar to participation over simple audio streaming?

Appreciate what you're doing to try to sort all of this out.
