If you happen to be in meetings where you don't interact with your keyboard or mouse, the computer's screen saver may get enabled. This setting will prevent the screen saver from enabling while you are in a meeting.
Checking the Auto Sign-In box (or unchecking it) determines whether Vibe proceeds directly into the application or stops and prompts at the Sign-In page each time.

The System Sounds Volume slider control lets the user control how loud the different Vibe system sounds are relative to their overall system volume.

Enabling the "Microphone on when entering meeting" option will cause your selected Microphone to automatically be enabled for every meeting that you join. If you do not enable this feature, you'll need to click on the microphone for every room that you enter to enable it.
Auto Gain Control
The Auto Gain Control (AGC) feature adjusts the microphone input value automatically. If you have issues with your microphone always going to the maximum setting you may want to disable this setting.
Enable Echo Suppression

You can select which video is larger with the double box icon (as shown in the screenshot above. The inset video can also be moved around by dragging it.
Show only active Videos
Users can choose to display video or not. If users do not show video, by default they will be represented by a still image they have uploaded. If as a user you'd like to save desktop space and not show the still images, you can enable 'Show only active Videos' and not display the still images.
Animations are used as windows open or close or as you join and exit rooms. To speed up the display you may want to disable these animations which is the purpose of the 'Disable Animations' setting.
Change Still Image
The still image is displayed when the camera is enabled but no video cameras are enabled. This can also be seen in Menu -> Configuration -> Camera Configuration

Vibe has SIP Softphone capabilities built in. This is where you control the registration information required to register to the SIP system.
Register / unRegister
The Register button will allow you test the registration immediately. If successful, a green light will be shown and the window will indicate 'Registered' where it says 'Not Registered' at the top of the window.
The Registrar is the SIP server (or SIP Domain) that you'd like to register to. Sometimes your SIP user account is represented as sip:user@domain or sip:user@server. This entry would be 'server' or 'domain'.
This is the user part of your SIP registration. Sometimes your SIP user account is represented as sip:user@domain or sip:user@server. This entry would be the 'user'.
The Auth User setting is used by some registrars (such as Cisco Call Manager) for authentication purposes. Your system administrator will supply this to you if your system uses Auth User.
The SIP password for your Registrar should be provided to you by a system administrator. This is usually a complex and long value for security purposes.
If your SIP system utilizes TCP based signaling vs. UDP signaling this can be enabled with this check box.
Will cause Vibe to automatically register to your SIP registrar each time Vibe is started.
