The role of Contributor is an account-level user role within Socialive. This user role is able to join broadcasts and contribute videos to the Recordings Library through both desktop and mobile apps.

Once content has been recorded, that content uploads automatically into the Recordings Library to be further produced/edited/ or repurposed.
The following outlines the available methods for Contributors to contribute content:
- Record directly within the mobile app
