I'm looking to stream my desktop live via a service such as ustream and having extreme difficulty in finding a solution.

I've tried WebcamStudio and it could only use FME files which don't work with Ustream.



  1. Install webcam studio ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/webcamstudio/files/ )
  2. start webcamstudio
  3. click Sources => Desktop
  4. click the Play icon
  5. you can checkout a preview with the Show Preview button
  6. login to ustream and click start broadcast
  7. in the flash input dialog choose webcamstudio

edit: Testet this at lucid and it is working.

  • The latest version of WCS doesn't work. It's deprecated. :( – KI4JGT Feb 12 '13 at 16:39
