How to livestream a podcast recording

Krystal from The Proffitt Podcast asks, "To incorporate video, should I livestream my podcast recordings or use pre-recorded video instead?"

TL;DR
Adding a video strategy to your podcast is a great way to potentially double the amount of content you produce every week with just a little bit of planning and a couple of pieces of software.

So in this episode, we'll cover the difference between live streaming and pre-recorded video and talk about several software options for live streaming to social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn.

Live stream if...

  • You don't want to edit the video
  • You're okay with a less-polished episode
  • You want the flexibility of incorporating listener comments and questions


Pre-record if...

  • You want a more polished video
  • You want to edit the video before you release it


The two live-streaming software solutions we recommend:

  1. Zoom.us
  2. Streamyard


Special thanks to the podcasts that shared their video recordings for the YouTube version of this show!
