Filler slides display media content on the event stage at the beginning of a Simulive or RTMP session while your video loads as well as at the end of a session if the prerecorded video you've chosen is shorter than the duration of it. Additionally, filler slides are also displayed when presenters are switching between live and prerecorded content during a Live session.
