When a session is in progress, this view will display a live video preview of ongoing sessions. If multiple sessions are ongoing, you can switch between them using the names of the sessions at the top of the pane. You can also switch between video sources using the black boxes at the right of the video preview.
Sometimes, warnings can appear above the live video preview pane, for example, when CaptureCast is no longer receiving signal from one of its sources. These warnings will look like the screenshot below, and include a description of what the warning is for. You can also configure notifications for these warnings in the notifications settings.
