Wirecast Editor's Review

Wirecast is a freeware live streaming software. Which is used primarily for the purpose of broadcasting live shows through popular services, such as justin.tv, ustream, youtube or a variety of other websites. This is a fairly new concept for the internet and online video, so there are very few programs which can do it, so having wirecast at your disposal is a very valuable tool. If you intend to live stream any form of web show, or video game, then wirecast is certainly a brilliant tool to use.

As there are two things that live streaming has become increasingly popular because of, we shall look at wirecast for its performance at both. First of all, live webcam web shows. These involve an interaction between one person talking to the group, the live streamer, and the chat. For this purpose, wirecast is actually incredibly well rounded, offering a variety of additions, scenes and filters to allow you to add as much changing and as much polish to your web show as possible, including text overlays. To this end wirecast works great for live shows.

The second key thing that live streaming has become popular with, is video game live streaming. There are two ways to go about this, and fortunately, wirecast facilitates both. The first method, is to capture your screen while you play PC games. Although wirecast works fairly well for this, it will lower your frame rate while playing, and therefore making it more difficult to play, so if PC game streaming is your ideal, then you'll need a fairly decent PC. The second option, is to plug in a third party device to record your console game play. For this, wirecast is incredibly well optimised, and works great.

If you are still doubtful over which live streaming software you should choose, here is a quick comparison between wirecast and xsplit.

Full version price – Xsplit is by far the cheaper software to buy the full software, being a fraction of the price (but only being a yearly license) making xsplit ideal if you're on a budget and want to stream 1080p

functionality – Wirecast has slightly more features designed to make your stream better, allowing to to transition between your scenes without breaking flow. Xsplits features are mainly back end, however.

Ease of us – as far as ease of use is concerned, there is no competitor to wirecast. If you are new to live streaming, wirecast is definitely the superior program

Quality – Although xsplit limits your resolution and quality rates, wirecast has a great deal of settings that help to control the quality of your broadcast.

Overall, if you are looking for software which focuses on the back end and ensuring your computer can run optimally while streaming, wirecast is perhaps not your best choice, but if you are looking for the best software for making the best live stream for your viewers, there really is no match for wirecast.
