Used @RiversidedotFM after reviewing around eight other tools. I am so stoked I made the right choice. At no point I got confused. Perfect balance of getting the user to do what they want and how they want it. Most importantly, everyone in the episode found it easy.

I started using @RiversidedotFM to record online video interviews for my YouTube channel. AMAZING STUFF tbh. It records in 2160p and All Streams Separately. That is perfect for post production. Love this tool: https://buff.ly/3mMHevV
