StreamYard
StreamYard is a great tool to create good-looking and engaging live sessions on social media. It allows adding visuals and videos, showing comments, as well as communicating with your audience and speakers in one place. StreamYard is also a great tool to film interviews or info sessions for those who are not familiar with video editing as it allows you to add all the necessary visuals with one click. StreamYard is great for communication with an extended audience.

For churches looking to use a fully digital video switcher in their livestreaming setup, vMix Live Streaming Software is a great option in the list of possible solutions. If a church is already using Vimeo or YouTube for their streaming, and they are a PC environment, then vMix Live Streaming Software can plug right in and give some robust editing and video options to the volunteers making the Livestream happen.

The StreamYard interface is more functional and easy to understand for participants, speakers, and team members. StreamYard also allows managing live streams in the app without the need to go to social media for checking comments, replying to them, etc. Simultaneously, StreamYard has many more options compared to other similar tools. For example, it allows sharing slides from different PowerPoints and screens, adding videos, visuals, and live comments with one click. Due to these options, we save time on managing live sessions and our broadcasts look much more professional and engaging.

Ultimately, we chose to use vMix Live Streaming Software on TOP of Vimeo, as vMix Live Streaming Software gives full video-switching capability and allows us to pipe a finished product into Vimeo instead of trying to mix our video in Vimeo's native web-based app or their Livestream Studio app. vMix Live Streaming Software stands out in their market as setting a high bar for digital video switching and managing multiple inputs well.
