Best Practices When Screen Sharing

Share your computer screen in a Studio as the Host, a Guest, or a Producer and it is saved as a separate video track. You can choose to share your entire computer screen, a program's window, or a browser's tab.

For best results and a smooth video of the screen share, we recommend the following:

Before Recording

While Recording

  • Keep the window you are sharing at the same size for the duration of the recording.
    • Otherwise, each time you change the window's dimensions, a new video track of the shared screen is created using its new resolution, including its height and width.
  • For visibility of content in the Studio:
    • You can increase the size of the content you are sharing for easier reading, especially if it is text.
      • The shortcut to adjust its size is usually to hold the key (Mac)/ctrl key (PC), then press the + or - keys.
    • Each participant can expand or minimize the video frame with the shared content in the Studio on their computer. The change only applies to their view of the Studio.
    • Participants on a mobile device can pinch-to-zoom the video frame.
TIP: See Studio Participants While Sharing
You can choose one video frame to float and stay visible above all other windows and programs by using picture-in-picture mode.
