[prMac.com] Moscow, Russian Federation - Mac Broadcaster today is happy to announce the release and immediate availability of Broadcaster for YouTube 1.1, the important update to their powerful, yet easy to use live-stream YouTube broadcasting app for Mac OS X. The app offers anyone the ability to live-stream directly from their Mac's desktop, allowing live demonstration of software, iOS devices, slide presentations, training seminars and more, all via the popular YouTube video streaming network.
Broadcaster for YouTube is not designed for the video professional, but is instead designed to make it easier for businesses and hobbyists to share live-streaming video with others, directly from their Mac. The app offers a simple way for anyone to be live and "on the air" on YouTube within minutes.
To broadcast live on YouTube, all a user needs to do is make sure live streaming is enabled on their YouTube account, run the Broadcaster for YouTube app, select the video and audio sources, and click the "ON AIR" button. Within a minute or so, the live broadcast is streaming to YouTube viewers everywhere.
Users can select their audio source, video source, and other options with just a few mouse clicks. Audio can be selected from the Mac's built-in Mic, or any connected sound source, such as a USB microphone. Video sources can include the Mac's entire desktop, a selected app, a webcam or iSight camera, a connected iOS device, or even a graphic file.
Ways to use Broadcaster for YouTube include:
* Live presentation to employees or investors
* Live streaming of ongoing news, such as financial market analysis
* Broadcast meetings, discussions, and training seminars
* Application and game demonstrations and reviews
"While there are plenty of live-streaming applications available for the video professional, there hasn't been an easy-to-use app for amateurs, such as business people and hobby enthusiasts, to use to get on the air," says Broadcaster for YouTube developer Michael Garanin. "Using our app, anyone can be live-streaming to the world in just a matter of minutes."

The app can display any blend of the Mac desktop, applications, iOS screens, and graphics, making each broadcast a custom experience.
Gamers who want to show off their iOS gaming prowess will find Broadcaster for YouTube an excellent way to stream gameplay to the masses. Simply connect an iPhone or iPad to a Mac via a Lightning cable, select the iOS device as the video source, and begin streaming the gameplay. Users can also describe their strategy while they play, via the Mac's built-in microphone, or any other connected mic.
