Installing Switcher Cast On Your Mac

Locate the downloaded file on your Mac. Double-click the file, and follow the instruction's on your Mac's screen to install the Switcher Cast software.

Using the Switcher Cast software

To get started, connect your computer to the same WiFi network (an Ethernet connection will cause this to fail!) as the other devices and launch the Mac screen-sharing app, Switcher Cast.

Now, the computer's FaceTime HD camera, the main display, as well as any connected displays will begin broadcasting an rlcc:// URL.

These sources will now show up under the Inputs section of the main mixing device. Select your display from the Inputs menu, and it will now be available as one of your sources.

The Switcher Cast window will now show which devices are controlling each source.

Note: Screen-sharing from your computer does NOT transmit audio. To include audio playback from your computer, you must first run an audio cable from the headphone jack on your computer into an audio mixer connected to the main switching iOS device.

For best results, we recommend setting your computer's screen resolution to 1920x1080. You can also improve quality by showing full-screen presentations and graphics. If your text seems illegible, try using larger font sizes.
