Seeking beta testers for FarPlay 1.3.0

We invite your feedback for FarPlay 1.3.0, now available in beta. This beta features an upgraded input mixer, which supports using multiple audio devices at the same time. We’ve also upgraded audio and video recording to provide pristine recording quality over a much wider range of network conditions (even with noticeable packet loss). Please note that the Mac version of this beta requires macOS 11 Big Sur or higher.
