Use Mobile Device as Second Camera Angle (Multicam Mode)

Include an extra camera angle when you record by joining in Multicam mode from your mobile device. The additional angle provides more flexibility: for example, you can use it to capture a close-up or switch between two views of yourself when you edit the final video.

Follow the steps below to join a Studio as a Host while using your iOS or Android device in Multicam mode.

NOTE: Device Requirements
This is a beta feature that is available starting with version 2.1.2 of the Riverside iOS app running on iOS 15 or above or version 2.0.3 of the Riverside Android app. Stay tuned for further enhancements!

Step by step:

  1. Download the Riverside iOS app or Riverside Android app.
  2. Log in to your account on a computer.
  3. Join a Riverside Studio as a Host from the computer.
  4. Log in to your account on a mobile device.
  5. On the mobile device, navigate to the Studios list.
  6. Next to the same Studio joined in step 3, tap the three dots menu […].
  7. Select Join with second camera.
    Usually a phone's rear-facing camera is its higher resolution camera.
    Tap spin-rotate.svg to switch between the device's cameras.
  8. After the device connects to the Studio, tap Join with second camera again.
    On the computer, the device is added to the Studio sidebar as Second camera.
    The Studio does not display an additional video frame of the second camera angle. The second camera angle does not appear to external audiences during a live stream.

    Download the video as a High Quality Track labeled Second Camera on the recording's page afterward.
  9. Click Record on the computer.
    The mobile device records video (not audio) as a separate High Quality Track.
After recording, leave the Riverside mobile app open until the upload completes.
