I'm attempt to livestream from a 2016 MacBook Pro, but for some reason Wirecast (12.2.1) crashes. It doesn't matter what I'm doing, it only stays open for a couple of minutes, then it just completely closes.

  • Don't use wirecast in the first place. I've always had trouble. I like vmix.

  • @DigiVisionMedia it’s for macOS?

  • I'm sorry, I thought vmix had a mac version.

  • Can you use obsproject.com instead? It does a lot of what Wirecast does

  • This question is really a wirecast support forum question.

If you have an external monitor, try unplugging it and loading up Wirecast. Some people have reported too much video resources being in use cause problems.

  • I didn’t, though it may have something to do with discrete graphics being enabled as well
