Adding camera angles

We recommend using a high-quality camera that is connected to your computer as your main camera.   You can connect multiple USB connected camera for more angles that can be shown at the same time or cycle through using scenes.  If you want to use a phone or tablet you need to install an ip camera software and make sure your computer running obs and phone are using the same wifi connection.
