"Easy to use video streaming software"

What do you like best?

The best part of Wirecast is how easy it is to use. Being able to setup and plan a live stream is very simple. The user interface is intuitive. And it offers a lot of solutions and flexibility it it's setup.

What do you dislike?

Wirecast doesn't update their software very fast. For example, their current version isn't supported by MacOS High Sierra and crashes when you try to go live. So having to wait for them to update their software in timely fashion can be a little frustrating. Also, this software requires a very powerful computer and a laptop just isn't able to process the data fast enough, so a very powerful desktop computer is needed for high quality video.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Wirecast provides an easy to use live steaming software with tons of capabilities which allows for freedom and flexibility.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a virtual office with staff in 5 states and two countries, and Wirecast gives us the ability to easily live stream our monthly staff meetings via YouTube. And being able to have staff interact in real time in another timezone is so cool and helpful. We're able to share announcements, give presentation and reports, and have an easy way to stream high definition content to all our staff.

"Solid casting program for all your sources"

What do you like best?

The rock-solid stability that you get with Wirecast compared to something like OBS.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve is a little bit steeper than something like OBS, but I found that it is worth that extra time and commitment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The input sources, the destination, and the budget

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to capture live video, slides, and even screen interactions that we can combine and save, as well as send it to multiple sources simultaneously.

"Love it "

What do you like best?

You can do a thousand things with this software. You can basically do everything a news network can. You can have multiple talking heads, people connecting via Skype, mix together live feeds and canned video, special titling, multiple scenes. The list goes on and on. Usually I just do the broadcast myself, so I can’t be switching around to a bunch of different scenes. If you had a person in a “producer” role they could do all the scene swapping, then even more is possible.

What do you dislike?

It can be slow at times and crashes.. this isn’t something that happened too often but I have experienced it a few times

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Best part and most useful thing is you can run it on a Mac or Windows notebook!

Specifically, Wirecast can accept input from most devices that you can connect live to your computer, including webcams, DV/HDV camcorders, and other cameras via hardware analog inputs. In my tests, which were done primarily on a MacBook Pro
