  • Web Videos. Videos you’ve broadcasted to destinations (web, social media) will appear here. You can save to the saved videos tab, view, download, and trim them until they expire.
  • Encoder Videos. When your encoder is powered on and capturing from this tab.
  • Recently Uploaded. This shows which videos you’ve uploaded recently, when they were uploaded, and their status.
