Projecting a Live Stream

Our Church will be tuned in to a Live Stream that we would like to show through a lcd projector so everyone in the Sanctuary can view it. 

Should I bring the Live Stream into one Mac and use it as an NDI source to a second Mac running Wirecast and send that output to the projector? Or is there a better/easier way. Thanks

iMac - MacBook pro - Wirecast 7.7 - (2) BM Intensity Shuttles

    Wirecast > Output > External Display Output
    The Projector hooked up to your GPU output could be the second monitor.

    CraigS Thanks Craig,

    there has been a change, instead of sending to a projector, they would prefer I record the Live Stream for a later showing, also guess I'm not sure how to bring the stream into Wirecast.

     Sorry but I'm not sure what stream you're referring to.
    Wirecast has WebStream plugin to bring in streams as sources but I'm not sure why you'd need that in your case. Perhaps it's the terminology you're using.

    CraigS sorry I wasn’t clear. I am simply wanting to record a Live Stream that I will be viewing on line.

    Rick If you're going to edit the recording you may want to use Apple ProRes (which also uses less CPU than H.264 if that's an issue). Otherwise you can record in a high data rate x264 MP4. Keep in mind that if uploading to a service like YouTube they will encode it again which will result in loss of some quality.

    If you're just going to play the file in Wirecast to stream (only thing I can think of when you say bring it in to Wirecast) the Apple ProRes recording will generally be better for playback.

    CraigS thanks, what I ended up doing was viewing the live stream on my iMac, ran NDI scan, reinstalled WC 7.7 pro on my MacBook brought up WC and ( I know, poor choice of words ) “brought it in” to WC via NDI then output to a BM Video recorder via BM Intensity.  Audio unfortunately was slightly out of sync. 

    Thanks-

    Rick Just in case you need to, you can adjust sync in Wirecast shots in NDI Source Properties.
