Note: Mac users will need to provide additional permissions for Capture to record the screen. See the guide from Panopto for details.
By default, Panopto Capture records the camera input and any additional video inputs as separate streams, it and displays them as picture-in-picture. Removing the camera input will leave an empty box in the recording. To avoid this empty box and maneuver between video streams, additional steps must be taken.
