Multi-Source Playback

Multi-Source Playback allows Warpwire users to watch and switch between multiple video sources contained in a single viewing experience.

Users will experience Multi-Source Playback when viewing Multi-Source Captures or Zoom recordings that contain multiple video sources. Multi-Source Playback allows the playback experience to mimic the recording experience and gives the viewer control to change the playback layout, such as making one video source small and another large when desired.

In the Media Library view, all media assets with Multi-Source Playback will be identified with an icon at the top-left of the thumbnail.

Once in the video player, users have the ability to toggle between different layouts, including Presenter View, Grid View, and only a specific video source. First click the gear button, then click Layout to see the options.
