During Your Broadcast and Audience Interactions

Once you have an audience, if they choose to send comments or reactions, you’ll see them appear in the Comments and Reactions Window. If you wish to share them with the audience, you can click Add to Broadcast, or simply drag the comment into the Main Window, and drop it where you want to create a Comment Overlay.

Figure: Comments and Reactions Window with Comments visible.

Ecamm Live will style the Comment Overlay with the default style, or your most recently used style. Place your cursor over the Comment Overlay to see editing controls. Click the icon if you want to edit its style. You can move it around by dragging it, and resize it by dragging at the edge of the Overlay, by using the scroll feature of your mouse, or pinching/spreading your fingers on a trackpad. When you’re done with the Comment Overlay, hover your cursor over it, and then click the icon to remove it.

Note: When broadcasting to Facebook Groups, comments will not appear in Ecamm Live. Only reactions will appear in your Comments and Reactions Window.
