Stream to your own RTMP or RTSP server, to your Wowza server, or directly to YouTube or Facebook using Softron Streaming Pack and either MovieRecorder Express or MovieRecorder.
Softron Streaming Pack's built-in integration with any RTMP server allows you to stream as many channels as you like (depending on your Mac's capabilities).
Easy, affordable, and dependable. That's what Softron is all about.
One Softron Streaming Pack license adds the ability to stream from MovieRecorder or MovieRecorder Express, running on the same Mac. Just create a preset in the "Streaming Center" application (part of the Steaming Pack) and it will be available to use on multiple channels, the number limited only by the capability of your Mac to encode H.264.
Simply enter your Facebook or YouTube stream keys in Streaming Center, and start streaming your live directly from MovieRecorder or MovieRecorder Express. This makes it very easy to start streaming an event.
The Softron Streaming Pack works with either MovieRecorder or MovieRecorder Express. If you want to stream the output of your favorite Softron playout application (OnTheAir Video Express, OnTheAir Video, OnTheAir Node, OnTheAir CG, and even M|Replay), there is no need for a video output device, you can simply do it using the Virtual Output and Direct link of our playout applications.
With the "Direct Link", MovieRecorder and MovieRecorder Express can receive the frames directly from our playout applications running on the same Mac — no video device required. Check this video to understand how this works.
Make sure to test with our free DEMO version available for download before purchasing, to ensure Streaming Pack fits your needs. In DEMO mode, the application will burn a blue frame in the recorded file or at output at short intervals, but that’s the only limitation. Applying a license removes the blue frame insertion so you can keep on using the same setup with which you’d tested.
|Application||Minimum application version|
|MovieRecorder Express||4.2 or later|
|MovieRecorder||4.2 or later|
You can use the direct link feature of our playout applications to send the frames to MovieRecorder or MovieRecorder Express that will do the streaming. Requires a license for your playout application and for MovieRecorder or MovieRecorder Express.

We know that some of our users can not upgrade their macOS very often. This is why Softron tries to maintain compatibility with older versions of macOS as much as possible, but it is not always possible to achieve. Because Operating Systems are usually significantly improved over previous versions, Softron must use many of the more capable built-in functionalities inherent in Apple's latest OS releases. Failing to do so would mean that Softron software would essentially be blocked from using the new Frameworks provided in the OS. For this reason, Softron's free support is provided only on the current and previous macOS versions. Also, most of our tests will be done on these macOS versions, and only basic tests will be done on the previous OS. We will always try to help, but in some cases, the best solution is to upgrade your macOS to a more recent version.
Softron does not warrant that these recommended configurations will always meet specific user requirements. They are intended as guidelines and are based on extensive testing that Softron has done, they can be changed without notice. Hardware, drivers, software and operating systems change regularly and we advise users and prospective users to evaluate their requirements in their specific environment/workflow using Softron demo licenses that are available for downloading from Softron's web site.
