Multi-camera streaming can not only make your content more exciting and improve stream quality, but it can also save you time! You can instantly switch from speaking to the camera to showing what you are working on — no editing required. Having an extra camera allows you to switch feeds in real-time. Forget about hours of editing your VODs, inserting scenes, etc.!


  • Extra camera feature is available on any of our plans, including the basic tier.

  • The feature is available for hosts and guests.

  • A second camera is required. You can’t select an already active camera as an extra camera.

  • Please ensure you have enough CPU and bandwidth to handle the extra camera's additional encoding and network load.
