Using Remote Desktop with ProPresenter

We use ProPresenter to project media during worship services. I would like to be able to live stream the projected graphics. ProPresenter uses dual monitors. The main monitor displays the operator controls while the second monitor is the projected output. When I connect with Remote Desktop I always see the main control monitor. Is there a way I can have Remote Desktop return the second monitor which is displaying the projected graphics?

  • Make sure you've updated to Remote Desktop Presenter 2.0.8.
    DTP allows you to chose a Monitor or Window. When using Window you select the specific program window. In your case just select the second monitor.

    Pick the Monitor


    Or pick the Window

    And then whatever specific windows are open within the program

    These are under Wirecast 6 because there's not much different in how rDTP works.

  • Thanks for the help. That's exactly what I need. I am using Remote Desktop Presenter, but missed the Window selection item. I'll definitely check out the tutorials.

  • We have been using Wirecast for over a year, including RDP to capture our second monitor mirror of the projector running LiveWorship and Powerpoint. We recently upgraded to ProPresenter, now we cannot get RDP to send the second monitor display of ProPresenter, but we still get the PowerPoint feed once we force ProPresenter to stop outputting.  I would like to get to only using ProPresenter, but until we can fix this, I am stuck.

  • Oddly enough, we just fixed our issue. ProPresenter has a setting in preferences under Display Settings to Display at Top Most Window Layer. To use RDP, you must have this turned off. Now it appears to work for us.

    Thanks for building a great tool.
