Devices and equipment
With StreamYard, most of the work happens on our computers, not yours. Your 5-year-old laptop, Chromebook, or desktop will all work just fine! But, if you’re serious about streaming (and we hope you are!), we recommend investing in a high quality mic and webcam. A pair of headphones is also a good idea – this will reduce the potential for echo if you are bringing on guests.
We are big fans of the following microphone and webcam:
Chrome, Firefox and Opera all work with StreamYard. Unfortunately, other browsers, like Safari, do not support our technology yet. We recommend Chrome for the best experience.
Streaming requires a lot of data, but your current ISP or 4G provider should work fine. We recommend that you hardwire (ethernet) to your router. WiFi will work, but not as well.
