We have noticed the same behavior on our test systems and did some further investigation upon seeing this issue. We started comparing several other products (see at the end for a list of programs) and have concluded this is due to Windows 8 and not to Livestream Procaster or Livestream for Producers. We are investigating an solution for this, but because all other software that is designed to just record a screen also don't work, we don't expect a solution soon.
