Be sure to post your feedback in the Beta Discussion Thread

Disclaimer: Please be reminded, this is a beta version. We are still testing it and working out some of the bugs. We don't recommend you use this in critical broadcasts. 


Hello friends, 

Thanks for your feedback so far on the 14.1 beta. We'd love for you to continue your testing and feedback with our newest version 14.2 Beta 2.

  • How are you liking the Placeholders & Templates?
  • Have you checked out the Secondary Display Output?

This new Beta 2 has just a few more fixes/changes, most notably, we renewed our Windows certificate, so when you install Wirecast 14.2 on Windows you'll likely see the Windows Defender Smartscreen notification:


Don't fear. This message should eventually go away when Microsoft's algorithm determines that our app isn't spyware.

Other notable fixes in this beta are:

  • WIRE-18637: Code signed the Wirecast Support Assistant app on Windows. 

  • WIRE-18608: Disabled LinkedIn Live Draft Mode until it’s officially supported by LinkedIn. 

  • WIRE-18593: Fixed some issues with NDI sources. 

  • WIRE-18533: MIDI and XKeys controllers are now working on macOS. 


  • WIRE-18607: Virtual Microphone audio is distorted or silent on M1 systems.  
  • WIRE-18573: Mainconcept H.264 encoder is not supported on M1 systems.  

  • WIRE-18572: Unicast and Multicast Outputs are not supported on M1 systems.  

  • WIRE-18517: Starting an x264 encoder crashes Wirecast when running in Rosetta. We’ve decided not to support Rosetta mode.  

  • WIRE-18496: Legacy Text source has been removed. This means that certain Legacy Text properties that are not compatible with the new Text Widget won’t be available.  

For full release notes, see attached PDF (or read through the initial Beta Post)
