Overlay General Config
In the Overlay config broadcasters can change the position of the Overlay toolbar, the apps displayed, and modify settings for apps.
The Toolbar Position file contains a left option and a right option, which refers to the side of the screen that you want your viewers to see the Overlay toolbar on. Note that the Overlay toolbar will auto-hide when the mouse is not directly over the video player on the channel page or when there is no activity for several seconds.
The Overlay contains several apps that can be toggled on or off. If an app is toggled to the ‘Off’ state then it will not appear in the Overlay toolbar. Left is off and right is on.
Clicking on the gear icon next to each app will open the app config where app specific settings can be made.
