    Video source is the main content which the output video resolution will be based of.

    Picture in picture video source is a smaller video placed in the bottom right corner of the video as an overlay. None means there will be no picture-in-picture, i.e. only one video source.

    Audio source is the audio used in the video, choose whether you want to use your microphone as input or choose None to disable audio capture.

     

    Screen as Video Source
