My Livestreaming Gear: the best tools for facebook live and youtube livestreaming

1 Posted by - Photo & Video

If you’re wanting to kick your livestream production up a notch and are wishing for better quality than your smartphone or facetime camera can provide, you’re in good company!

For those of you who’ve had the dis-pleasure of being there for my first livestream, you know livestreaming daily has been a steep learning curve for me! But along the way from broadcasting from my phone to my live studio, I’ve found great tools which don’t have to cost a lot that have added tremendous quality to my production without costing a lot.

Here’s my humble recommendations for anyone who wants to up their livestream game.
