What to consider when choosing live streaming software

Live streaming is simpler if you’re using well-rounded live streaming software! Choose software that has an easy setup and is already integrated with the live streaming channels you want to push your recording to. For a larger reach, go for software that offers multistreaming so you can broadcast one stream to different channels at the same time. Repurposing is great for reaching new audiences too! For this, we suggest software that records your stream in high video and audio resolution so you can reuse the recording after.

If you want to capture more than one camera or screen live, look for software with multiple recording inputs. Look for remote guest capabilities to capture your camera as well as another speaker’s camera at the same time. To turn your phone into a second camera, find software that comes with a live streaming mobile app. It’s worth checking screen-sharing options as well. To engage with your audience, choose software with live calls or chats and ensure you can live edit your show with sound effects to spice up your live stream.
