How to Manage Your Video Library

The Video Library in the Switcher Dashboard is cloud storage that hosts Switcher Player videos and can store cloud recordings of livestreams made using the Multistreaming feature.

Video Library Storage Allotments

The available amount of files in your Video Library is determined by your subscription type. Once the limit of files is surpassed, the oldest recording is removed and the newest recording is posted. For Business plan users, video files can be pinned so that they are not deleted as new Cloud Recordings are added. For more information on pinning cloud recordings with the Switcher Studio Business plan, see Pinning Cloud Recordings in the Switcher Studio Dashboard.
