Open screen shared content locally

Screen sharing is a good start to getting on the same page. But we’re building Remotion for calls (and teams) where everyone is active—not just passively following along. The call is more efficient and engaging when viewers can browse or act on shared content independently.

When a screen sharer enables Open Locally, viewers get a button to open the shared content on their own computer. This first release supports all browser URLs in Safari and Chrome. It also supports Linear issues, Figma docs and Notion docs that are open in their respective Electron apps.
