Tools to Make your Live Streams Cool
Live Streams Webcam:
This is one of the most important tools to consider with your live streams on Livecoding.tv. It does not only bring your audience close to you but it makes your session a more interactive one. Like one on one discussion with the audience.
Without a microphone live streams could be really boring and less interesting. No one wants to watch a video without audio so definitely even live streams could be affected by this.
This is another cool tool no streams should be without. Chatbots are like toys you give to your audience to play with for entertainment purposes, because everyone loves it especially if they can interact with it. See here.
Iframes and Text:
Having an attractive frame and text content on your streams can be useful and really cool. The Banner could be related to your channel, personal image, logo or even your current/past projects. You also need to make sure you don’t add too many images as it occupies too much space.
Pastebin is for sharing code with your viewers.
