My livestreaming setup

Here is the livestreaming setup, software, and equipment I use for streaming to Twitch, YouTube, and Periscope.

Current setup:

  • Computer: iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2019), 3.6 GHz Intel Core i9, 64 GB of memory
  • Microphone: Shure SM7B into a Behringer USB audio interface, Blue Compass boom arm.
  • Camera: Panasonic Lumix G7 into a Camlink 4K USB

Old setup:

  • Computer: Macbook Pro 2013, 16 GB RAM, i7 2.6 GHz
  • Microphone: ATR2100 USB
  • Webcam: Logitech Webcam Pro


  • Live studio: Ecamm Live. This helps produce your stream, show your desktop and camera, switch screens, and will even allow you to take live Skype calls. (Example)
  • Restreaming: This will take your live video stream and re-broadcast it to multiple platforms at once: YouTube, Twitch, Periscope, Facebook Live, etc…
  • Chat: will also provide you with a consolidated chat, that shows you the incoming messages you’re getting from all the platforms.

Where I stream

Other software you can use:

  • Open Broadcast Software – open source live-broadcasting software. I found it a little too hairy to manage (so many options, so many ways for it to go wrong).
  • Streamlabs – a Windows-only fork of OBS, that tries to improve on its downsides.
  • Lightstream – another impressive looking livestreaming suite.
