March 9, 2015 at 1:07 PMElecta Live

On March 8, 2015 we started publishing our new Mac OS version of the virtual classroom for our MAC users. This is a new native Mac OS application which DOES NOT use Java anymore.

All users running an OS X 10.7 and above will be offered to launch the new app the next time they try attending a live session.

The new application is available for download here:

All first-time users will be prompted to install the app.

All users who prefer to use the old Java version can do so following the link on the launch page.

In addition to the improved interface we have introduced all the features that were not available in the Java version but could be found in the Windows application. Now MAC users can benefit from the full functionality of Electa Live.

We have also introduced playback of local el8 files, which was not available in the Java version.

- Improved overall appearance on Windows 8 platforms using high resolution

- Fixed a bug while screen sharing on Windows 8 platforms running on high resolution (more than 96 DPI).

- Improved screen sharing performance and quality.

New Java Free Entry Points Coming Soon...

March 20, 2014 at 8:42 AMElecta Live

As you may already know Electa Live is supported on multiple platforms - Windows, MAC OS, Linux, Android phones and tablets. Earlier this year we have added support for Apple iPads and iPhones.

To enable fast and easy access to live sessions Electa Live uses a set of different approaches. One such option for Windows users has been Java.

During the past months however Java has been blocked by many browsers for security reasons. Because of this we have started a process of shifting away from Java as a launch option for our users.

Our software team has successfully developed a new secure and faster entry procedure for our Windows users. This entry point does not use Java. We have already started shifting our existing customers to this easier session launch method. This has already been set in effect for all new customers that are signing up after March 10 2014.

All existing customers will be automatically updated to the new improved entry procedure within the next two months. No service disruptions are expected, nor any changes in exiting schedules or libraries.

As of now this process will cover Windows users only. MAC OS users will still need Java to run live sessions. This however is a subject to change later this year after the release our new MAC OS application for teachers and students which will be available for free download in the Apple MAC Store.

Android and iOS (iPhone and iPad) users already have a secure and Java free entry point using the free Electa Live app from Google Play and App Store.

For any questions regarding the above please feel free to contact our support team at

RackSpace to Store Recorded Sessions of Electa Live Customers!

September 26, 2013 at 1:15 PMElecta Live

During the last week (Sep 18 2013 – Sep 24 2013) we have shifted our recorded sessions cloud storage from our former provider Nirvanix to a new faster unlimited storage provided by RackSpace. All Electa Live customers will now experience even faster downloads... and of course we will continue to provide unlimited space for all of our customers.

This shift was carried during the past week as Nirvanix unexpectedly warned its customers of terminating its services leaving them almost no time to migrate: (

Our engineers had to transfer several terabytes (TB) of recordings from the old storage to the new one. This huge move had to be done fast and without any disruptions to our customers. The process involved multiple computers working together to ensure undisturbed access to our services. Task was completed for about one week and all recordings are now hosted in their new location.

How this will affect you:

All your recordings are already transferred safely to the new storage.

You can still continue playing your recordings from your control panel without any changes.

Any “playable links” links that have been extracted and published on websites or sent to users by email before Sept 24the will continue to play till mid October. After that they will expire automatically and new links have to be extracted.

All new “playable” or “downloadable” links that are extracted after September 24 2013 will be life time.

At the moment we have disabled the “expiry time” option for links as this is currently not supported by the RackSapce cloud storage.

All other virtual classroom and online collaboration services are unaffected and functioning normally.
