How to Use Audio Hijack to Live Stream to Periscope

Rogue Amoeba launched Audio Hijack v3.7 which includes a beta of a new live stream block:

With just a few clicks, you can get a free stream up and running with one of the services offered by major platforms, including Periscope, Twitch, and YouTube Live. Live streaming is great for offering a live feed while recording a podcast, or transmitting content like concerts and DJ sets. These live streams are great for listeners as well, since they can tune in right through their browsers, as well as in branded apps.

In the video at the top of this post I take Audio Hijack v3.7 for a test drive and try live streaming my audio out to my Periscope account. You can watch / listen to the results on this stream on my Periscope channel.

I plan to record videos showing how to use this for Twitch, YouTube, and Restream as well – but the basic premise of how to set up an audio stream from Audio Hijack will stay the same.

What is Audio Hijack?

Audio Hijack, available from Rogue Amoeba, is a audio recording app for macOS that, in Rogue Amoeba’s words, allows you to:

Record any application’s audio, including VoIP calls from Skype, web streams from Safari, and much more. Save audio from hardware devices like microphones and mixers as well. You can even record all the audio heard on your Mac at once! If you can hear it, Audio Hijack can record it.

While you’re at Rogue Amoeba’s website, be sure to check out their Ultimate Podcast Bundle if you’re in the market for Audio Hijack, Loopback, Farrago, and Fission for a great package deal.

In the video, I also touch on a few other apps besides Farrago that you might be interested in checking out:
