Once you have activated your virtual room, you will be asked to choose the Room Video Mode.
Your room video options (plan dependent) are
- Pre Recorded Video

- Live Studio
- Video Conferencing
- Video Conferencing Pro
- RTMP Streaming
- External Link
Open the drop-down menu to make your selection, then complete the required steps based on your choice.
The Pre-recorded room mode will enable you to have Video On Demand (VOD), allowing viewers to watch the selected videos whenever at their schedule's convenience. Click here to learn how to activate and use the Pre-recorded room video mode to have On-Demand content in your online activities.
The Control Room clearly separates your virtual events' on-stage and off-stage tasks, enabling you to manage speakers' and viewers' settings in one control bar and choose different screen layouts. Please review this article to learn more about the benefits and functions of using the Control Room option.
With the Live Studio, you can enhance your streaming by adding animations, lower thirds, chyrons, and custom backgrounds to it.

By choosing the Video Conferencing mode, the Control Room will be disabled and WebRTC (Real-Time Communication) will be enabled. You will be able to have up to 9 presenters live at the same time in a live session that can be easy, inclusive, and accessible. It can be accessed from any modern device and requires low Internet connection bandwidth.
