I am running a broadcast and would like to include content from 2 locations, each location has the ability to stream from wirecast.

Is it possible to stream from wirecast at location 1 to wirecast at location 2?

  • How far away are your "locations" from each other? How much switching between the two locations do you want? For instance, go live in one location for an hour and then go live from the other the second hour ... I need to know some more details. – A.J. Hernandez May 20 '16 at 2:13
  • One will be from the south of England and one will be from Dublin Ireland. – Daniel Lane May 20 '16 at 6:02
  • What is your CDN for delivery? YouTube, Livestream? – A.J. Hernandez May 20 '16 at 6:03
  • Looking at having a few changes from between 5 and 30 mins – Daniel Lane May 20 '16 at 6:03
  • Going out to uStream, ideally want the broadcast contained to a single URL – Daniel Lane May 20 '16 at 6:04

I would use skype from the remote location into the local computer running wirecast then use their screen capturing option to capture the skype video.

The pro version of wirecast allows and input to be RTMP, Web streams and IP cameras. Assuming you have that, you could stream from the remote wirecast and bring it in as a source on the local system.

You may already be aware, but this will add a major delay in the remote feed. Because it will have to be encoded twice. Once from there to local then again locally on your main feed. Just something to be aware of.

  • Personally I would stream a private YouTube event to a local MacBook pro and take the HDMI out (in full screen) and reroute into Wirecast via a Blackmagic micro recorder as a second camera to mix seamlessly with the other feed. Skype is clunky and not optimal in my experience. – A.J. Hernandez May 22 '16 at 22:03
