Note: Adobe has announced it will be deprecating Adobe Flash by the end of 2020 and all major browsers will cease support for it. Because of this, having video previews of live sources in Grabyo will not be possible. Users are advised to use third party programs on their machines (such as VLC) in order to troubleshoot issues with live sources.
