Please note: Autopilot can only be managed through the Livestream Studio

  • If you restart autopilot, it will start in sequence from the first clip of the first storyboard after the curently playing clip is finished.
  • If you pause autopilot and cue a video clip from Broadcast Live tab, that clip will play after the currently playing clip is finished.
  • If there's no live broadcast and no cued video clip, Livestream turns autopilot on automatically to ensure that your channel is always on the air.
