Useful Things to Consider

As you are streaming to LiveCoding.tv you want to show your desktop to the audience. To do so you need to create either a “Screen Capture” source or a “Window Capture” source depending on what you are going to show.


The “Window Capture” source doesn’t show the mouse cursor or any other visual items on your desktop.

  • It is a good idea to have a two display setup. On one display you run mimoLive and on the other you run your programming show. with this nothing from mimoLive will distract your broadcasting.
  • Use the PIP layer in mimoLive to also include a face cam in your video stream. People love to see who is behind all this!
  • If you want to play back some royalty free music you can download some tracks from joshwoodward.com and put them into a “Playlist Source” to let them run in a loop. Please make sure that you meet the license requirements of giving Josh Woodward credits for the music in your show. You can easily use the Playlist Visualizer Layer layer to do so.
  • If you are developing for iOS and test run your app on an actual iOS device you may want to use a iOS Device Video Source to bring in the screen of the iOS device. The perfect layer for presenting your hard work are the iOS Device Demo and iOS Device Demo 3D layers that comes with mimoLive:
