This video tells you how to stream your desktop to Justin.tv using SplitCam and picture-in-picture mode (pip mode).

Go to SplitCam “Sources” tab (at the bottom of main window) and choose “Desktop” as a source of your video. There are 3 opportunities of “Desktop” mode. First is “Full Screen” to show whole your desktop. Next is “Partial” or “Following by mouse”, that means that SplitCam will show only that part of desktop that will be targeted by your mouse. And the last is “Selected Screen”, it means that you will show only part of desktop that you select by special frame. We will use full screen mode for broadcasting whole desktop.

Now start pip-mode. Check pip box under SplitCam main video area how it’s shown on video, and go to “Sources” tab again. In the “Webcam” list select your webcam. Now in main window we have 2 pictures – one big with your desktop and small with your webcam stream – pip mode. Small window size and position can be changed.

Next step is to adjust settings on Justin.tv. Start your browser and go to Justin.tv website, enter your account. In the top right corner you see “Go live” button. Click it.

New window appears with small settings-window, press “Allow” green button. On the screen, in right bottom corner you see button with settings, click it to see settings. In new window, choose “Setup Video” and in the list select “SplitCam Video Capture”, then close it. Click the same button with preferences again, and choose “Setup Audio”. In this frame select “SplitCam Audio Device” as microphone. Settings are ready.

Now users will see everything that happens on your desktop. You may show them pictures, videos, programs, some step-by-step instructions, anything you want. You may also input text over video. For this restore SplitCam window and go to “Effects”. Choose “Text” tab. Now input any text. It will appear over the video image and it can be seen in Justin.tv service. At the same window you may change font size, style, color, and position. To input date and time above the video, go to “Date and Time” tab in SplitCam effects menu. Change date and time format, size, style, and then check “Show Clock” box. Now it’s on your screen. You may also change its position.

It’s ready, start your desktop streaming on Justin.tv with free SplitCam program!
