We also discuss how the WebRTC and browser-based live streaming solutions such as Facebook and YouTube Live.

First of all let’s review the live streaming software that many people are using on their Mac Computers.

OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) Wirecast MimoLive Facebook & YouTube Direct

The above software is listed in no particular order, but they all support the latest Mac OS software. OBS aka Open Broadcaster Software actually supports Mac, PC and Linux and it's completely free. So this is a great piece of software to start with if you are not sure about all the features you need in the beginning of your video production process. Wirecast is a live streaming and video production software that supports both Mac and PC. Wirecast is what I call an "advanced" streaming software, which is a great upgrade to OBS that actually allows you to import your OBS scenes into Wirecast for an easy transition into the more powerful software. Next we have MimoLive which is a Mac only live streaming software designed specifically for Mac users. Since MimoLive is only available for the Mac OS you can expect a tailored experience that the Mac Community really loves. In fact, Boinx Software the creators of MimoLive even won an Apple Developer Design award for their interface.
