Ever wanted to get a bunch of makers together to show off their projects, and broadcast this to the world? You can do this with Google+ and Ustream in a snap, even if you don’t have Google+ Hangouts on Air!
Launch the Desktop Presenter from the computer icon dropdown menu.
Resize the presented dimensions in the Desktop Presenter by choosing Select Screen Region and pressing Change Region.
Change the microphone settings to the Built-in Microphone.
Make sure that all of the video settings are correct.
You can play around with transitions, PIPs, and media too.
Start the Ustream broadcast.
You can see if it is working by navigating to your Ustream page, or wherever the stream is embedded.
Invite more friends to your hangout and stream, and HAVE FUN!
Google Hangouts are a great way to collaborate, and broadcasting them to a stream is a great way to share them with the world! Hopefully this will encourage you to start your own!
