Configure Widget

The only setting you need to configure is the URL for the stream. The stream will only work if the feed is coming from either a HLS or UDP URL.

Once you are happy with your widget, click 'Save Changes' to go back to the zones playlist. If you have finished with the playlist, click 'Finish Editing Playlist' or the 'X' in the top right hand corner to go back to layout builder overview.
