The Best Live Streaming Software for Mac (and a Secret Weapon)

After weeks of broadcasting daily, I can safely say I found the best live streaming software for Mac. It's called Ecamm Live, and it's super easy to use, and it includes a lot of amazing features. Let me show you…

    Great video – hope for one for PC as well! 🙂

      Just use OBS. It’s free and it does pretty much all of that 🙂

    • Rob on March 30, 2020 at 5:37 pm

      Hi @Alex Sol, what is OBS? I’d like to find a tool for PC as well. Thanks in advance

  2. Chris Gorges on March 30, 2020 at 4:03 pm

    Wow, very cool! I’ll have to check this out

  3. KarmaCashflow on March 30, 2020 at 4:05 pm

    LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! Thank you for doing this Pat!

      I would LOVE the secret weapons! 🙂

  5. Martin Hewlett on March 30, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    ahhhh thats how you do it. Also, to give you a warm fuzzy feeling tonight. Because of you and your imput 200,000 people get more relaxation and mindfulness as of today ( we hit that target) from my podcast show. Genuinely, thanks so much for all your content. Stay safe

  6. No Name Tech on March 30, 2020 at 4:21 pm

    Was just trying to start streaming. Thanks for this

  7. David H Lee on March 30, 2020 at 4:26 pm

    Nice setup! Definitely would try and reach to the content creator community interested in adding more value through Video to their brand or business. love the sound effects lol

  8. Bert Botta on March 30, 2020 at 4:27 pm

    Great tool Pat! My podcasts are going to be interviews with older, wiser men that are in a community that I started 8 years ago. We continue to meet weekly for coffee and donuts and these guys, average age 65+, oldest now 89, wouldn’t even think of missing these gatherings. The effect of us gathering for 8 years has carried over to their relationships, have helped to heal fathers and sons and so much more.

    I want my podcasts to attract men who otherwise would remain as withheld, silent “cavedwellers” i.e. what I call the “World War II syndrome” of men who have such beautiful and helpful stories to tell, and help them to engage and have their stories be heard and shared with others to build their legacy while inspiring and encouraging both their listeners and the men sharing their stories.

    Thanks for your massive contribution to my podcasting career and, at age 81, I feel like finally, I have found my “niche” in which I can share what I have learned that will bring the unsung “heroes” out of hiding to benefit others with their stories…

    Best to you, your team and your family,

    Bert Botta

    Very helpful! I am planning to live stream around some content my company has been developing over the past few years it really helps people get connected with their personal DNA, values, mission and vision.

  10. William Beem on March 30, 2020 at 5:05 pm

    Thanks for the overview. I bought Ecamm earlier, but haven’t started live-streaming yet. That should start next week after I complete my day job and have time to help my audience. I serve photographers by helping them understand visual storytelling and how to create photos that spark an emotion within their audience. I’m hoping a live-stream will help us connect better so I can serve them better.

    Best live streaming software, and best live streaming YouTube-guide as well!!

  12. ScrapHappy on March 30, 2020 at 5:30 pm

    Thank you Pat!!! I was so hoping you’d share this with us! This is exactly what I’m looking for right now.

    Ecamm Live looks like a fabulous software tool for controlling and enhancing your live streaming. It’s now on my “Must Have” list!

    I’ve recently stepped away from my full-time gig as the Head of Production at a major Canadian production company to focus on my own film and television projects. It was liberating to know that I was beginning a new chapter in life and returning the running my own business. Then COVID-19 arrived in North America and suddenly everyone was putting the breaks on. Talk about killing my momentum!

    As a producer, I am used to continual setbacks and obstacles. We learn to make quick decisions and find ways to keep our productions moving forward; there are a thousand pivots a day. It only took me a day of self-isolation and self-reflection to determine that I needed to turn this situation into an opportunity. My film and television community needed connection and a way to encourage each other through these tough times. I also needed to figure out how to keep projects moving forward, which now has me looking at ways to build up our online community around a wine show.

    I’m now turning my attic into a small studio to record podcasts and live streams. This will allow me to start having conversations with other producers, directors, writers and creatives about the new reality of our business and share it with the world. We are storytellers at heart and we need to continue telling stories while locked away indoors, so why not tell our own stories?

    It will also allow me to build our wine show’s YouTube channel and work with our winery partners in the Niagara region to find new ways of reaching people and keep their businesses open in these trying times.

    Who knows what other crazy ideas will come from the strange and uncertain times we find ourselves living in these days. These challenges we face today are the opportunities that open the door for different and possibly better tomorrows for everyone.

    Great info! Especially at the time when everybody wants to go live 🙂

  15. Joël Kai Lenz on March 30, 2020 at 5:56 pm

    Awesome thanks Pat! I currently have a paid community with about 300 people. I usually went live with Streamyard but this is GAME CHANGING! I’ll definitely will make the switch to Ecamm! Thanks for the tutorial. Can’t wait for the next live stream.

  16. history- -sbp-update on March 30, 2020 at 5:57 pm

    Hi Pat. I have been tuning in and asking questions for 2 days now and LOVING it. thank’s! I am hoping to attract people that can help me get my podcast up and running. You are AMAZING!! thank’s again! history-sbp

  17. Robert Witham on March 30, 2020 at 6:27 pm

    This is awesome and timely! I was doing livestreams somewhat regularly, but took a break a few months ago because I wanted to increase the quality of the productions – much like what you demonstrated here. I tried OBS but was not able to get it working correctly on my MacBook Pro. I had already scheduled a livestream for tomorrow evening when I saw this video pop up in my notifications today. Heading over to check out Ecamm Live now.

    My channel focuses on travel which is enough of a challenge these days. I’m hoping to use weekly livestreams to build community by getting a number of viewers together at the same time for real-time interaction. My experience in the past has been that only a small percentage of viewers tune into livestreams, but that those who do are passionate. Looking forward to moving forward with this now!

    Thanks Pat, i have been livestreaming with OBS but this Ecamm looks much nicer. I have a youtube channel aimed at cloud developers and i like livestreaming to connect with them in a more organic and natural way.

  19. Baba Run Far on March 30, 2020 at 6:57 pm

    Thanks for the info, Pat! Like many pastors, I’ve been doing some livestreams on Sunday mornings using OBS. Response has been very positive despite my newbie-ness. I think ecamm might work better to allow other folks to lead worship, prayer, etc. remotely using Skype. Anyway, blessings to you and yours. Stay safe.
