    • Click ‘Allow’

  • Once you have allowed access to your microphone and camera you have the option of choosing what device you would like to use.
    • Click on the ‘gear’ button (top right in the image below)

  • When you have chosen to adjust the Camera or the Audio you are given the option to disable the Camera or Audio altogether
  • To do thi, click on the switch as seen to the bottom right of the image below
  • You can also choose what device to use if you have multiple devices installed

  • Once you have set the input devices and/or disabled audio or video you can start a recording
    • Click the big red knob in the middle of the video preview screen to start recording
