Ecamm is a paid live streaming production platform for Mac (approximately $12 to $20/mo. depending on what features you wish to use, billed at an annual rate). They do offer a 14 day free trial.

As far as streaming software goes, it's one of our top recommendations for ensuring you get the best quality that your mic and camera can stream into Uscreen. You'll get some awesome benefits like auto recording of any live events you stream, the ability to add custom overlay graphics, and super easy setup on a Mac compared to some other encoding softwares out there.

Ecamm has excellent tutorials, should you wish to dive deeper into their services. These tutorials cover subjects like: How to connect a DSLR camera and a mic; How to use Scenes; How to use your iphone with Ecamm (we only recommend relying on this method after you have thoroughly tested it); and more!

Navigate to Content > Live Events to first create a live event.

If you haven't created a live event before make sure to check out our help article on that.

On the Stream tab you're going to see a Stream Key. This is needed for Ecamm to link with Uscreen.

Unlike a few other streaming services, your stream key is going to be unique to each live event.

In Ecamm, close out the initial pop-up box containing common streaming platforms.

In the bottom right hand-corner, select Destination.

Select Custom Stream and add rtmp://live.uscreen.app/app/ as your Stream URL, then add your Stream Key (found in Uscreen on the Stream tab for your live event).

When you are ready to test your stream or go live, click the blue Uscreen Go Live button.

Now Uscreen should be receiving your stream from Ecamm.
