Show comments

As viewers watch your live broadcast, you can interact with them by reading and responding to comments or questions they post in the chat. Engaging with your audience by having a real-time discussion (where they ask or answer a question while you, or a friend reads it out loud on air) can really make your live show stand out!

When using Webcaster X2 with an attached HDMI display, you can see viewer comments (and reactions) while you broadcast. This feature is on by default.

To change the default show comments behavior after you need:

    • Your Webcaster X2
    • An HDMI display connected to your Webcaster X2
    • A USB mouse connected to your Webcaster X2

  4. During your live stream, click the left mouse button of your mouse connected to Webcaster X2 to show or hide the Webcaster X2 overlay (including comments, if you have your device configured to show them).
  5. Right click to exit the Preferences.
