I've been using Zoom for doing YouTube videos. So far I've found the easiest way to share content on screen is to use the advanced screen/share part of a screen function, and to load up the images of articles, tweets, and videos onto PowerPoint slides in advance and then click through the them as I do the talk/discussion to camera (they're usually just me) - that way you can have everything appear in one fixed spaced on the screen and there's a separate box of myself up on the side. My question is:
- how can I change the background color? - it's only ever black and I can't see a way to change it.
- you can change the size of your own box but only at the start of each session's screen share: would be useful if it it could be fixed at a certain size in advance (as you can in fact do with the portion of screen box)
- I'm not sure if there's other software that works better for doing these videos on your own: maybe someone has advice..

Not sure about doing what your after in Zoom but you could try OBS (its free) to achieve. You can set a background image/color, set 2 PIP's, one of the camera and one of the Power point or set the images, screen shots etc as scenes and click through them, you can change size/position of the PIP's throughout with the scenes too. It will record locally and I think can go directly to you tube but you'll need to confirm. There is a lot of good tutorials on You Tube showing how to use it as well.

Hi thanks for this. I attached two examples of YouTubers who seem to manage to use different backgrounds.
You also see these guys bringing up videos or tweets, and as I said, the most efficient way I found to do that in Zoom is to load them all into Power Point slides and then show them via 'share content on screen', in a box size fixed in advance of starting the session.
Where do I go in settings to set the PIPs?
