You can customize video stream options, such as the default video stream for viewing live video in the canvas, the default archiving source for viewing playback video, and when to receive messages about video streams, from the Options dialog box.

What you should know

The Live stream and Playback source options apply to the local Security Desk workstation for all users. The Display a warning when stream selection is not automatic option is saved as part of your user profile.
