Understanding the Switcher interface
The Switcher view is a simple interface used to seamlessly switch between a channel's custom layouts while live streaming and/or recording. See Create a custom channel or layout for more information on creating custom layouts.
The Switcher interface is accessed from the Menu button in the Dashboard interface. See Understanding the Dashboard interface.
The Switcher view is responsive and automatically adjusts and reposition its elements to fit cleanly within any size web browser window.
See the Elements in the Switcher view table below for a description of each visual element in the Switcher interface.
Select from a list of channels (configured via the Admin panel) to display custom layouts specific to your selected channel. Note that when a channel is selected, you can only switch between layouts within that channel.
