Broadcasting software is optional and allows you to stream your content on Youtube with a lot more controls than a regular webcam. For example:

  1. You can show your desktop i.e. your browser, applications, slides etc
  2. Allows you to run a live multi-presenter webinar
  3. You can add graphics like your name and webinar title, show a recorded video from your computer and then be live, then show another recorded video, be fancy like the TV Hosts!

You will find a lot of streaming encoder, but we really liked the following ones. We have included affiliate links below but they in no way influence our recommendations:

  1. Ecamm (MAC only)
  2. OBS Studio (for both MAC & Windows, it is free)
  3. Manycam (for both MAX and Windows, minor cost)
  4. XSplit Broadcaster (Windows only)
