Dear Experts, I am a MAC user. I want to broadcast video games with a MAC. Is there any expert person who has experience of broadcasting games using MAC. Please tell me how doing it and which capturing cards are used to stream videos. When it comes to learning how livestreaming works you are better off using a free platform such as CamTwist. It has all of the basic features that you will see in an expensive livestream.

Our school radio station is currently supplementing the audio based lessons with a slideshare meeting-based slideshow. Unfortunately slideshare has been pretty buggy and any time we want to stream video (say off youtube) the video fails because of the traffic generated by 20 devices loading the same video stream at the same time.

We could mitigate this if we could stream a screencast live on the local network - we could literally stream a keynote presentation off the radio mac's screen and any video content straight from the browser. We don't need to worry about bandwidth internally - it's our external internet connection that causes our lag problems.

I've tried QT Streaming Server but it's not so well supported and I can't stream a screencast, only a webcam video stream.

Is there an easy way to stream a live mac screencast locally to more than one mac client?

To live stream your desktop, you will want to get two pieces of software:

Software to capture your desktop as a stream and redirect:

1) CamTwist - - does desktop live capture and turns it into a video stream that is compatible for 'webcam' input applications. I've used this to live stream my desktop to, Google Hangout, etc. (free)


2) SoundFlower - - Allows you to redirect the system sound output so that it can be routed as an input for your stream (free)

Software to publish from your desktop:

1) EvoCam - - does a local http streaming server to serve your 'webcam' stream out to the local area network. ( $30 )


2) VLC - - VideoLAN streaming component of VLC to livestream your 'webcam' produced from your camtwist/soundflower combo. (free)

Can post more details, if this solution path works for you.

Edit: Note, a few test runs of VLC to export a stream crashes on my Mac. Looks like recent VLC builds support streaming the desktop, which is cool. With soundflower, you can also redirect the system output as well as the mic so that output from the apps and programs are livestreamed as well... provided your copy of VLC is running stably. :)


CamTwist is 32bit. So you will need to download the 32bit version of VLC for Mac OS X:

  1. Fire up CamTwist
  2. Select Desktop (not Desktop+) by double clicking it. This will add it to the list.
  3. Select 'Save Setup', and give it a name.
  4. Go to [tools]->[Studio], which will pop up a new window showing a list of 'sources', a preview pane, and a program pane. Your new stream probably shows up in 'Program', which is the 'live webcam' indicator. You can select another source via the buttons and it will show up in the 'green preview' window. Hitting 'cut' will cut over from preview to program.
  5. Fire up your 32bit VLC
  6. [file]->[open capture device]
  7. Under Capture Device, choose CamTwist.
  8. check the [streaming] radio box
  9. Choose the streaming settings
  10. Choose the [stream] radio button
  11. Leave most of the options as default
  12. Hit OK
  13. Hit Open
  14. This should start the stream.

On my box, my copy of VLC happens to crash at this point, but then again, my version of VLC (2.06 and 2.10) both seem to crash when I try to stream anything. So it might be a problem on my system.

But the above is how I get CamTwist setup and VLC to see CamTwist.

When I understand correctly you just want to broadcast the Mac's screen.

Maybe Wirecast would be an option: It allows broadcasting a local or remote screen to the a streaming server, such as QT Streaming Server or any flash based like Wowza, Red5,..

Additionally external video sources could be added and mixed at will.

A free alternative would be Flash Media Live Encoder in combination with CamTwist to capture the screen.Here is a tutorial:



(You're located in New Zealand. New Zealand Research and Education is a member of the Network.)

With SeeVogh you can broadcast at least:

  • a talking head, if you have a camera and microphone

  • all or part of one screen.

There's a wealth of documentation, much of which relates to EVO (a predecessor to SeeVogh), but the simplest way to realise the features is:

  • register and use the service.


  • SeeVogh is more user-friendly than EVO

  • a player for SeeVogh is expected within the next two weeks.


On Linux, OS X and Windows:

  • Java (details, including a .jnlp file for a quick check).


Whilst SeeVogh services are non-local, related technologies such as LISA (Large Integrated Services Architecture) should be well-suited to working around bandwidth and other issues (for the curious, there's a MonALISA GUI).

If you find that SeeVogh does not work as expected for users on your LAN, I'll be interested to know; leave a comment.

Postscript: considering the additional information (students aged 5–12), SeeVogh is probably not suitable. I imagine sixteen-year-olds registering for, and using, the software without difficulty; but not five-year olds!
