The first sentence in every video-conference:

"Can you hear me alright? ... HELLO!?"



It's silly, but whenever I skip this formality it turns out that somebody can in fact not hear me or see what I'm trying to show ...

Any proper videoconferencing thing should have an indicator for these things. Each client lets the host know if they're receiving sound/images and presenting them to their user, and the result is shown to the presenter, unobtrusively, when people connect and whenever they start transmitting their screen contents or slides.
