Encoder settings, live previews and status

Click Encoders in the main header bar in AV Studio to open the Encoders page. All encoders that you've paired plus any encoders that are disconnected are listed. Double click an encoder to open that encoder's Status page or select Details on the encoder's thumbnail.

The Status page is where you can view recording time, upload speed, clear the upload queue, and preview the encoder's live content. Just click Live SD (or Live HD) to preview a live video and audio feed. The time line along the bottom of the Status page shows any uploaded recordings for that encoder.

If you're a team administrator or owner, you can check the encoding resolution, frame rate, and even check the firmware version of the encoder on the Settings tab. For Pearl encoders, you can configure the encoder settings for the channel. For detailed instructions to configure the settings on Webcaster X2, see the Webcaster X2 online user guide.

Tip: If you're a team administrator or owner, you can easily change the encoder name. Just click the pencil icon that's beside the encoder name on the Status page.
