2. Operating system (OS) configuration
When you connect ClassInTheBox to your computer, we recommend setting citb as the system’s default audio input. This way, once you start any video conferencing platform, citb will be the default active microphone.
In cases where you need audio to be output through an audio system or speakers, connect them to the ClassInTheBox mini jack output and set citb as the default audio output in the operating system. If you don’t need it that way, set the audio output through your computer’s speakers / headphones.
Follow these steps to get your ClassInTheBox up and running and enjoy a unique experience in your classes, meetings and conferences.
