Description of App

With Livedesk Studio you can live broadcast on any video streaming service from your Mac.

Use it with any platform like Facebook Live, Youtube Live, Twitch, Mixer, Periscope, on premise services and many more.

You can live stream your webcam, your desktop activity, a connected mobile device (iPhone & iPad) or a prerecorded video file.

You can probably think of a number of potential opportunities already: you might live-stream an event, a Keynote presentation, your gameplay, an announcement, a web tutorial - you name it.


• Your web camera and microphone (including the external ones)

• Your Mac screen/desktop activity

• Your connected mobile device (iPhone, iPad) - no extra app required on your device

• Prerecorded video files


• Broadcast media on any streaming platform from your Mac, iPhone and iPad

• Stream from your FaceTime camera, a connected mobile device (iPhone & iPad), webcams, prerecorded video files or desktop activity

• Picture in picture for desktop live sessions (with camera, iOS device or other external screen)

• Start broadcasting while you play games on your Mac

• You can tune your broadcast preferences for the best results (video and audio input, video resolution, media bit rate and more)

• Livedesk is an easy to use and configure app. Just run it, prepare your speech and you are live!

• You can broadcast your screen/desktop activity on the web: show the world a tutorial, a Keynote presentation, an online seminar. Be the teacher of your audience

Ok, here is what I found so far.

  1. When connecting to let's say twitch, I see no place to enter the title, and I saw the timer maybe meaning I was live, I think, but the stream doesn't show up there, so I assume I was not connected.
  2. The demo is kind of a joke as 3 minutes is not enough to know if you will like the program or not.
  3. 19 dollars and that's on sale? Uh, Ouch! And for such a simple interface? I wish I could try out the video thing but I can't at the moment as I don't have anything under 3 minutes. Most of my streams and prerecorded stuff is between 3 and 5 hours in length.

You usually have to choose the titles in the web interfaces. On youtube for example, it works like that.

Unfortunately, I don't know of any other mac application to broadcast live ...

Yep, in obs I can dock windows and do titles that way. Lol! And I totally forgot about that. Lol! I would still say the demo is still a bit of a joke. I like the fact I can broadcast a prerecorded video without uploading it to twitch first.f

That of corse will not work if you want to broadcast video like I often do. My followers are mostly sighted and I intend to keep it that was for education purposes and to have a wiser proud who can then spread the word about what I do. I contacted the developer aboutr extendign the demo to perhaps a day of unlimited streaming or what not. so we'll see.

My problem with the app is that it looks like you can only record with microphones, not system audio. Also, I tried enabling screen recording functionality in system preferences, and the app wasn't there to enable.

Now if this app would be able to not only do live streams but record them as well, this would be a cool feature to add. I like this app all the same.
