Topic: Broadcasting / LiveStreaming Video Mixes
I have used VDJ to live-broadcast audio, but now I would like to livestream my video mixes. There doesn't seem to be an option built-in to do this in the VDJ application.
I'm primarily interested in sending my mixes to Periscope, Twitch or Facebook Live.
I suppose I would need livestreaming software that does screen-capture for the video. Can anyone recommend something?
Then there's the issue of audio. I'll be livestreaming from a nightclub, so the audio needs to go out of my controller to the club, but this inherently prevents it from being captured by the streaming software. Does anyone know a way?
I'm on a 2016 MacBook Pro (the one with the USB-C ports), by the way.
Thanks in advance!

you will need to use the 32bit version to broadcast VDJ video

I use it all the time, seems to have a lower overhead then VDJ itself.

Keep in mind I'm using a controller which has to push audio out to the club (this is the priority over streaming), so I suspect the master output from that controller is never captured by the OBS driver. I have tried the trial version of Wirecast and it's the same story.
How do you get your master-audio on to the stream?
(As a side-note, one thing I like about Wirecast is it can broadcast multiple places simultaneously. I can do Facebook Live AND Periscope all at once)

that's how I handle it
you may need a spliter if you controller or audio interface only has master output .... also if you connect to a house mixer it may have a tape out you can use to input to the internal soundcard,

The laptop also does not have any audio input hardware other than the onboard mic.

So you could use that and then get some splitters like this, https://www.amazon.com/Hosa-YRA-104-Dual-RCAF-Y-Cable/dp/B000068O4Y
Then you can run a set to the Behringer and the other set to the clubs output.
Your MacBook should pick it up as mine does just fine.

If you go to your VDJ Audio Options, you can add a NEW output. Set it to "Master" and then select "Built-in Output."
This will add an additional copy of the master-output going over your MacBook's speakers, which OBS and WireCast can pick up. If the sound from the MacBook bothers you, you can mute the speakers without affecting the output.
Just make sure you mute the "monitor" from your livestreaming software or you'll end up with a continuous audio loop.

OBS is very good with resources .. i would say upload bandwidth will limit your more then the GPU or CPU will.

The problem I'm having, like WickedMix said, is bandwidth. I've got about 1 mbps shared with a whole building and the streams suffer from dropouts.
