> I was just sharing a session and was a bit surprised that, at least with safari, I could only share my whole screen and not one specific window. However, looking again at the meetecho guide later, I noticed that you have also direct links to the meeting material from the datatracker integrated. It would actually be super great, if the chairs would not actually need to share anything of their screen but just select from the meeting material which slides should be displayed to everybody.

Hi Mirja,

only allowing the whole screen to be shared if a known Safari issue, and it's also documented in the general instructions on the ietf website.

Re "meeting materials sharing": one upon a time it was like this. Then we realized that chairs kinda often fail to update the meeting materials in a timely manner, so we had to go for something different. Giving that as an option might be a nice ting to add, though. Thanks for the feedback!
