“Oh damn that's genius”
“How am I only just now seeing this?! You can tell it’s a good idea because of how incredibly obvious it seems in retrospect — I had never thought of doing screencasts this way before, but like 5 seconds in it was readily apparent that all screencasts should be more interactive/narrative/expressive like this.”

How do I use Vidrio with Zoom, QuickTime, etc?
Zoom + Vidrio
Launch Vidrio and Zoom. Then in your Zoom meeting, hit "Share Screen". Don't select a specific window — if you do, your viewers won't see you! Instead, select “Desktop 1” (or any other desktop), or you can share a “Portion of Screen” under “Advanced”. You should also check “Optimize Screen Share for Video Clip”: this significantly improves the quality of the video seen by your viewers.
Google Meet + Vidrio
Launch Vidrio and Meet. Then in your Meet meeting, hit "Present Now" then "Your entire screen". Don't select "A window" or "A Chrome tab" — if you do, your viewers won't see you!
Microsoft Teams + Vidrio
Launch Vidrio and Teams. Then in your Teams meeting, hit the "Share" button then "Screen #1" (or any other screen). Don't select a specific window — if you do, your viewers won't see you!
QuickTime + Vidrio
Launch Vidrio and QuickTime. In QuickTime, hit "File" then "New Screen Recording". Select "Record Entire Screen" or "Record Selected Portion", then hit "Record". When you're done recording, find the square "Stop" button in the menubar in the top right. QuickTime will then show you a .mov recording that you can edit and export.
GoToMeeting + Vidrio
Launch Vidrio and GoToMeeting. In your meeting, hit "Screen", then "Main Screen" (or any other screen). Don't select "Applications" — if you do, your viewers won't see you!
Frequently asked questions
How do I use the keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys)?
Here's the list of default keyboard shortcuts. You can customize them in Preferences.
control + option + p to pause/resume
control + option + [ to decrease webcam opacity to zero
control + option + - to reduce webcam opacity
control + option + 0 to reset opacity
control + option + + to increase webcam opacity
control + option + ] to increase webcam opacity to full. But be careful with this one, because it will make your face completely opaque, so you can't see your windows!
Is there a Linux version?
Not yet ... stay tuned, we’ll get there.
Viewers couldn't see me — they could only see the window I shared!
You must share your entire desktop/screen, and not just a single window. Sharing a single window results in your face not being shared. We plan to mitigate this limitation in future versions.
I get an error: “Vidrio can’t be opened ...”
Open Security & Privacy, and set “Allow apps downloaded from” to “App Store and identified developers”. Alternatively, you can get Vidrio on the Mac App Store.
