Functionality Questions

Yes, totally, lots of people use Switcher this way! Even if you don’t want to livestream, Switcher lets you record multiple angles without having to edit footage together in post-production.

You can record now and livestream it later or you can take pre-recoreded videos and repurpose them on social media.

Nope, BUT you can bring your computer’s webcam (Mac) or screen (Map or PC) into the videos that you stream or record with Switcher. 

This is done with a complimentary app call Switcher Cast

Nope, we’re iOS only at the moment. Remote guests can join from any devices though, including an Android. 

Just a smartphone or a computer! Guests can join from nearly any device with a browser and a camera — you simply send them a URL, which they open to join your video chat. Guests don’t need a Switcher Studio account, and they don’t need to download the Switcher app.

The only way to stream to Instagram is to use the native Instagram app. As soon as Instagram opens an API that will enable us to build an integration, we’ll get on it!

The best way to contact the Support team is through the messaging tool inside the Switcher Studio app or on the Dashboard.

Yes, after a stream, your video is stored in the Switcher app on your main device. If you’d like to store it somewhere else, check out our Help Center article on moving or copying your Switcher Studio recordings. Additionally, if you’re using Switcher’s Multistreaming feature, your most recent Multistream recordings are saved to the Switcher Cloud and accessible from your Dashboard when the stream ends.
