Dwyco CDC-X (formerly Dwyco Video Conferencing System CDC32)2.97 / 2.10 Beta
Dwyco Video Conferencing System (CDC32) is a chat program designed to help you talk with multiple people on your computer, send and receive audio and video messages, as well as send files.
Prior configuration settings
The tool pops out a wizard-like panel which guides throughout the entire configuration process. You are given the possibility to filter the material streamed by the program in order to block inappropriate content.
Plus, you can disable the option for changing the filter after the installation, require a password or remove all restrictions.
When it comes to user setup options, you are allowed to enter a nickname, add your email address, and provide information about your first and last name, as well as a short description. A password is needed in order to complete the task.
What’s more, you can test your Internet connection, pick your video capture device, check out your audio streaming quality by making some recordings and listening to them, as well as assess your network connection regarding direct calls.
The GUI is definitely not the program’s ace up its sleeve, as it doesn’t impress in the visual department. It looks rather plain and not precisely intuitive, so you need some time to get used to working with the tool.
Dwyco Video Conferencing System (CDC32) allows you to connect to different chat rooms, change the status to invisible, get information about the current user, delete users, mute the audio, toggle the video preview, adjust the video size and format, as well as make some camera adjustments.
What’s more, you can view the online users, specify the maximum number of video and audio calls to accept, automatically accept calls, and enter the password for each connection.
The program lets you accept messages only from pals, create a list with ignored users, and delete users that you don’t have any messages from and haven’t sent them anything to.
Advanced connection options and other useful settings
There’s support for several advanced features that help you enter the host/IP and enable public chat, audio and video sending, video and audio receiving, and private chat, enter a password, as well as check out the connection status.
You can alter the user settings (e.g. nickname, description), make users ask for confirmation in order to add you on their list or automatically give recipients authorization, make yourself invisible to all pals, log in to chat at Windows startup, show profiles in chat panel, allow multiple profile windows, enable sound alerts for incoming calls and online users, and create your own chat rooms which can be password-protected.
All in all, Dwyco Video Conferencing System (CDC32) comes with a handy suite of features but it needs a major facelift in order to make the chat experience intuitive and easy to configure.
