Gather currently does not record your screen at any time, and we do not currently provide recording services directly in our platform. However, we welcome you to use any free online tool to record your own Gather events.
Some of our users have used the following free third-party tools for screen recording in Gather:
- OBS Streaming: https://obsproject.com/
- Flashback Express: https://www.flashbackrecorder.com/express/
- Apowersoft: https://www.apowersoft.com/free-online-screen-recorder?__c=1
- Screencast-o-matic: https://screencast-o-matic.com/screen-recorder
Warning: We are not affiliated with, nor do we offer support for any of these third-party tools; please use at your discretion.
We currently offer an almost indefinite selection of customizations for avatars at your disposal. Unfortunately, Gather does not support self-made or customized avatars at this time due to how avatars are stored and retrieved. This is a feature we would like to implement in the future; however, it is currently on our list of longer term goals.
Are you interested in hiding your background or adding your own personal touch to your video view on Gather? Great news - we now have Virtual Backgrounds! You can blur your background, choose from a background image that we provide, or upload your own image.
To try Virtual Backgrounds out, click on the arrow next to your video icon and then select Background & Effects located under the Video Effects category.
Choose a Background Image:
You can also choose from one of the five preset options that we provide.
Upload Your Own:
You can also upload your own image for your background. Select the Upload option, choose your image, and select it from the list to enable your new custom background image.
If you do not want to use an image as your video background, you may prefer the Background Blur option.
Enjoy exploring virtual backgrounds! Reach out to Gather Support if you have any questions.
