Wirecast is paid software to live stream your content. It's a one-time purchase, so no ongoing costs.

Make sure you've got a Mic and Webcam setup to start live streaming.

Navigate to Content, then go to Live Events to first create a live event.

If you haven't created a live event before, make sure to check our help article for detailed instructions.

On the Stream tab, you're going to see a Stream URL and a Stream Key. These are needed so Wirecast can link with Uscreen. You will need to copy both the URL and the key to start streaming.

Since stream keys can be reused, you will have to wait at least 5 minutes from event to event to reuse the same key. If you are creating a completely new live event, then you won't need to worry about that.

In Wirecast, navigate to Output and select Output Settings. In the Address box, paste in your Stream URL, and in the Stream box, remove myStream and paste in your Stream Key.

On the Wirecast control panel, at the top right corner, select the Live icon.

Uscreen should be receiving your stream from Wirecast, but before you go live, make sure you give your Live Event a test. Go to Content and click Live Events. Select the Live Event you want to stream and click Edit. Then under the Stream tab, click on Test Player. If you see your video/content from Wirecast, you are ready to go live.

Just note that you sometimes have to wait a good 30 seconds to see your content.

If ready, click Go Live, and your live event has begun! Remember that as soon as you click on Go Live, whatever you are streaming will appear to your users, so you can start talking right away!
