Share your screen in the Studio

« to Screen sharing: Overview

Who: Host, Guests, and Producers
Plan: All
Device: Computer Browser or MacOS desktop app

Start a screen share to show participants content from your computer screen and record it as a separate track.

For best results during a screen share, do not change the size of the shared browser window or program while recording.

If you are using a Mac and have not shared your browser's screen before,
enable it in System Settings, then quit and reopen the browser. Set this up before you start recording.

Step by step

  1. Using your computer or the MacOS app, join a Riverside Studio.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, click share-box-24px.svg Share and choose Screen.
  3. In the pop-up, choose the source: an individual browser tab, a specific window, or the entire screen.
    • If relevant, check Share audio to include the screen share's sound. Please note that at this time, you cannot share the screen share's audio if you are recording using the MacOS app. 
  4. Click the Share button to confirm.
    Your screen is visible to all other participants, including those using the mobile app.

The quality of the screen share track depends on the internet connection of the participant sharing their screen. However, if you share your screen using the MacOS desktop app, you receive locally recorded, high quality, separate tracks for screen shares.
