      Learning how to broadcast your screen with microphone audio via Wirecast may be actually more complex than expected. Follow these steps to learn how, and let us know if you need further support.

      Part I: Configuring Wirecast

      First,  you will need both Wirecast and an added install called “Desktop Presenter“. Once you have both installed, launch Wirecast and configure for your stream.

      Part II: Getting your Audio Connected

      First, click the monitor icon and select “Launch Desktop Presenter on this computer.”

      Second, to be able to use the mic you need to de-select “Capture Audio” from the Desktop Presenter window that pops up.
