belive category: livestreaming streamyard type: podcast

Welcome to BS’ing with Brandi where my mission is to help you #GetShitDone. I'm your host Brandi Good and today we’re going to do a feature comparison of BeLive vs Streamyard, which if you don’t know are 3rd party tools for live streaming to platforms like Facebook and YouTube.

Looking for a specific snippet of the podcast but don’t have time to listen to the entire thing again? All of my podcasts are now keyword searchable - type the word(s) you’re looking for and then jump to that spot in the podcast!



I’m going to start with a quick pro/con of using 3rd party tools and then we’ll dive into comparing the 2 platforms on features like number of guests, production capabilities, destinations, branding, and more. And of course, price.

  • Pros & cons of using a 3rd party tool (vs just going live directly on the platform)
  • Number of guests
  • Streaming destination
  • Frequency or length of streams
  • Production features
  • Mobile capabilities
  • Branding
  • Price

 It isn’t really a case of one being better than the other - it totally depends on things like what you need your livestream to do, how often you go live, how many guests you need, and things like that.

So which one do you think you’re going to use? I hope you’ve got a good idea at this point. And as a bonus, I’ll be including referral links for each platform.
