We have a couple of ways of adding your webcam to your broadcast! We offer two methods of capture, Browser and Client Capture, which each have their advantages.

Browser Capture

Webcam capture with no downloads required

Browser Capture is the method you'll want to use when you want 0 delay between what you do and what you see, when you'll need to keep an eye on what you're doing on camera while live, or when you're utilizing our guest room feature to bring on guests.

To add your webcam using browser capture, you'll want to press the green "Add Layer" button and then select "Camera". Once on the next pane, you'll want to click the appropriate Webcam preview that you want to capture

Client Capture

High quality capture straight from the Lightstream client

BEFORE PROCEEDING, PLEASE ENABLE CLIENT CAPTURE INSIDE OF LIGHTSTREAM LABS. MORE INFO AVAILABLE IN THIS ARTICLE

Client Capture is the method you'll want to use when you want the highest quality capture or you're grabbing webcams from a friend/coworker's computer.

To add your webcam using Client capture, you'll want to press the green "Add Layer" button and then select "Client Camera". Once on the next pane, click on the webcam you'd like to add from your list of webcams.
