  1. Thank you so much ! I'm starting from scratch with the equipment and you gave me a good idea about my needs. I will start teaching online and I want to use that kind of setup, wireless to be able to walk, talk and ear perfectly. I am moving a lot and I would like to get a perfect sound for my learners. Maybe you suggest to me that beautiful microphone, or the mic on me? 🙂👩🏻‍🏫

  2. I paused it for a breath at 4:25. So much to take in. Maybe someone needs to create a coded wifi signal box to plug into computer and nobody else will have a clue what each wifi means if trying to decifer it next door etc. Good show though

  3. Hi. Great video. My grandson wants to do live stream gaming. He has HP Stream 14 -cb116ds laptop and headphones, so I’m looking for the cheapest way to get him started in a low scale way with the rest of equipment. So, you said he’d need a webcam, microphone and software. OSB. What did you mean when you said all you need is a phone? Would that act as the camera? He really wants two monitors. Could he put his little HP Stream laptop next to his dad’s pc? Thanks for helping me understand what he’s talking about!

  4. Very helpful video Sean, even after 2 years. I would like to ask, when you use video feed via Mirrorless and audio via USB, does it sync properly on live? Or is there any delay? Would canon M6 Mark II will be able to do similar setup? Is it possible to use M6 mark 2 with video mic rode connected to it and stream it via elgato? Sorry, I am really new to this. Thanks in advance!
