WebGL activation

To check if WebGL is supported, open the diagnosis page, you will find it in the left menu.

If a green message is on your page, WebGL is activated, this is one of the features that will allow you to see the viewer, and it is mandatory. However, if a red message is displayed, you won't be able to join and might have to make some changes, try to follow one of the following tutorials to fix this issue.

 

On some android devices, it is possible that WebGL would not be activated by default. Activating it could grant you the access to the viewer. To verify if WebGL can be activated, follow these steps (tutorial for Google Chrome):

1. Click on the following link : chrome:flags

2. Search for "WebGL" and enable it

3. Reload your browser

4. Go back to the diagnosis page to check if WebGL2 is now supported
