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 Rodecaster Pro II USB audio interface, Blue Compass boom arm.

  • Camera: Canon M50 MKII

  • Lens: Sigma16 mm

  • Key light: Aputure Amaran 100x S


  • 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.
