Hardware Compatibility


  • What cameras and capture cards are supported?
    Click here to see the list of cameras and capture cards that Wirecast supports.
  • My camera or capture card is not on the list. What can I do?
    Due to the number of operating systems, hardware manufactures, and driver versions it is impossible to qualify all Camera’s and capture devices. If you don’t see your camera listed on our website you have we offer two recommendations.
    • Test your camera, in most cases, if the operating system recognizes the card/camera and other applications (such as QuickTime, or windows media player) can see the device video and audio, it is likely to work within Wirecast.
    • Go to our Wirecast Forum and ask other users if they use the camera that you own or wish to purchase.
  • Do you have some examples of how people setup or use the software?
    Sure! Whether you are totally new to live streaming or you have a lot of experience with video and field production equipment, you will find something to help you in our Wirecast Example Setups.
  • What are the differences between Wirecast Studio and Wirecast Pro?
    Wirecast Pro adds Built-in Score boards, Pro Audio FX (including VST3 Effect Plugin Support), Built-in PTZ Controller for Robotic Cameras (VISCA over IP, NDI), Instant Replay, Virtual sets and backgrounds, and added input sources such as Teradek Cube, IP Cameras, and Web streams (RTMP, RTMPS, RTMP(e), RTSP, HTTP, and MMS).

  • How do I designate a recording area?
    Although many screen capture programs function by designating a recording area, ScreenFlow does not. ScreenFlow captures the entire screen and all of its contents. This enables you to make use of the entire screen during the editing process in post-production.
    When using a program which designates a recording space, you may unexpectedly move outside of this space due to a menu option or pop-up. If your recording space is preset, there is no way to recover this lost information. With ScreenFlow's reliance on post-production editing, you can move outside your area of focus when necessary.
    If you are recording a small video area and you are concerned that a full screen recording will take up unnecessary disk space, ScreenFlow's adaptive recording method captures minimal information on parts of the screen where there is no action, so this has very little effect on file size.
  • What are the differences between buying on the website versus the Mac App Store?
    Features: Because of Apple's Sandboxing restrictions, there are a few features that are we cannot make available in the Mac App Store version of ScreenFlow.
    • Dynamic Update of linked media
    • Export to Windows Media format
    Pricing of Upgrades: Currently, paid upgrades are not possible on the Mac App Store, so we cannot provide the same upgrade pricing to Mac App Store customers that we provide to those who purchase on the Telestream web store. The upgrade price to ScreenFlow 4 for customers is $29. Mac App Store customers have the option of transferring their license to a Telestream license to get that upgrade pricing, or paying full price for ScreenFlow 4 on the Mac App Store.
    Pricing: On our website, the price of ScreenFlow is USD $99. Our web store has a process that converts that USD price to local currencies daily. On the Mac App Store, we choose "Pricing Tier" 60 for our application, which is $99.99 USD. The App Store then converts that to local currency also.
    Releases: If you buy from our website, you will often get software updates sooner. We have more control of releases on our website. When we have a new release/software update, we will generally upload it to our website immediately, and also upload it to the Mac App Store. However, the App store has an approval process that is out of our control. We have found that it takes anywhere from a few days to a few weeks for our app to be approved once uploaded.
    Software bundles: We have more flexibility on our website, and may sometimes offer bundles for a discount. The app store does not give us the flexibility of doing that.
