Default Procaster vs Producer?

Howdy there... just getting started, and am having trouble understanding the difference between the Procaster and Producer apps... can anyone shed some light on this?

Thanks!

Livestream for Producers is Livestream's free encoder for streaming to accounts on the New Livestream platform: new.livestream.com

Procaster is the free encoder for streaming to accounts on the Original Livestream platform: secure.livestream.com

You can read more about the differences between the two platforms here:

Thank you for using Livestream.

Wow, thank you for the quick reply, and on a holiday!

So... to catch me up, the Original Platform is going away?

Happy to help! Livestream Support is available 365 days a year.

I am not aware of any plans to remove the Original Livestream platform. We have many producers who like using it, and we are happy to continue supporting it.

Gosh, I really do appreciate the help! I have read the page you linked, and your response here about both platforms continuing going forward...

So, the question becomes how do I as a user decide which to use? Is either app more capable than the other? Can one but not the other publish to an rtmp server?

I promise I'll leave you alone now
