\* Discord’s Go Live feature can be used to stream an individual’s camera (for example, if you want to show the room a project or do a demo, or run a video class) — you need only pull up a camera application on your computer and then select that as your streaming option for Go Live.
\** Zoom has a 45 minute for new/free accounts. The Seneschal has a paid account that barony members can use if they contact the Seneschal.
