WHAT DEVICE CAN I USE FOR MUUYU?
Muuyu will work on any laptop, desktop computer, or television that has a built-in webcam or an external camera attached to it. For now, Muuyu is not supported on portable devices like iPads, tablets, and smart phones as they can not install plugins.
Our system works with Mac OS and Windows operating systems and for the smoothest experience, we recommend using the Google Chrome browser but others work fine too.
HOW DO I INSTALL THE MUUYU PLUGIN?
The Muuyu plugin is a simple addition to our software that lets us optimize our platform for you and your interactive experience. It must be installed for our classes to work on your device, but the good news is, it’s really simple to do!
Just click on Check My Device and it’s done in a matter of moments – quick and painless 🙂 Before you take your first class on Muuyu, please remember to click this button and get the plugin installed – it’s super important.
Depending on your browser and device, it could be downloaded to your desktop or downloads folder. Open the plugin file that appears and click to install. If you need to search for the file on your device, it will be called Muuyu.dmg (for Mac users) or Muuyu.exe (for PC users).
HOW DO I PREVENT MY SCREEN FROM DIMMING DURING CLASS?
If you have a Mac, click on the Apple icon on the top left hand side of your screen. Go to system preferences and then energy saver with the lightbulb icon. Here you have the option to adjust the settings to decide when your laptop goes to the sleep mode.
An app called Caffeine is available to download for Mac users also. It is a small program that installs a coffee cup icon in the right-hand side of your menu bar. Click the icon to prevent your Mac from automatically going to sleep, dimming the screen, or starting screen savers. Click it again to go back to the original settings.
If you have a PC, go to your computer’s Control Panel. Click on Hardware and Sound, then on Power Options, and finally Edit Plan Settings. You can then choose from a list of options for when you want to let your screen dim.
