Here is a guide of all the gear and tools I use for my live video & podcasting studio. Please note, I’ve built this slowly over time, so don’t feel you need to get everything right at the start. For most people, it’s best to keep things simple at the start. I’ll be creating other guides for people just starting and for PC users (my main computer is a Mac) soon.
My favourite live streaming software for Macs. This is the powerful core of all my live video broadcasts. Add multiple scenes with cameras, pre-recorded videos, graphics, headings and share your screens. You can bring in guests via interview mode. Ecamm Live has that sweet spot between power, flexibility and ease of use! For PC users who want a desktop streaming tool that works with Restream, I recommend OBS Studio or vMix. Or use Restream Studio for an amazing tool that works in the browser.

Cameras and lenses are a very personal thing. But the Canon M50 is the perfect live streaming and blogging camera. There’s no need for any extra dongles – you can plug it straight into your Mac and Ecamm Live will use it. It’s also really compact, has an external mic input, HDMI port and you can rotate the LCD screen round so you can see it when you are vlogging.
