We recommend matching your with and height to the resolution of your video. You'll also need to select 30 FPS for frame rate. Lastly, you can simply choose the "Fill Entire Frame" option and ignore the Width and Height.

6 - Stream to destination

With your overlays successfully on top of your webcam video, you can now stream to your desired destination (bottom right corner menu).
