Instructions

  1. 1

    Navigate to the "Products & Services" link at the bottom of the Ustream website. Click on the "Producer and Producer Pro" link.

  2. 2

    Download Ustream Producer and install the application with default settings.

  3. 3

    Start Ustream Producer and login with your Ustream account. To stream a full-screen game, click on the "Screencast" button. A box should pop up. Set the "Source" to "Main Display" and the "Selection" to "Full Screen." Check the box marked "3D Compatibility" and minimise that window.

  4. 4

    Click the "Broadcast" button on the lower-right of the Producer window. You are now broadcasting your screen and may start your full-screen game.

Tips and warnings

  • Another option is to start the game first, then try setting the "Source" to "Window" and the "Selection" to the name of your game.
  • If you have a widescreen display, change the aspect ratio of the stream through "Settings" in the Producer window.
  • Streaming slows down computers and frame-rates.
