Here’s a guide on how to live stream on YouTube, Facebook, Twitch simultaneously. Have you ever tried live streaming to several applications at once such as Facebook, YouTube, and others?
You may face webcam busy error as well as slow response from your PC system due to possible CPU overload.
The webcam busy error (the camera is being used by another application) in Windows occurs when a user tries to access the camera while the camera is in use. If you don’t believe me, try connecting your webcam to two different apps like Skype and Facebook messenger and see what happens.
This problem has been experienced by users of Window 7 and above and occurs both on external and built-in cameras. It is not specific to any particular app that you may use and the reasons behind it may be manifold.
In this article, we will explain the steps to solve this problem and how to live stream on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook at the same time using the SplitCam application.
SplitCam has the capacity to stream live to several applications smoothly without any webcam errors. Apart from Live streaming, it can also be used for Game streaming, Video recording, Online classes, Presentations and others.
