We're excited to share that we've developed a new Live Poll Plugin, which you can use in Wirecast Software. Here is a step-by-step guide on utilizing the new plugin:

1. Once you created or customized a poll, open your Live Poll Settings, make a tick on the following box, and copy the generated link

Poll activate Wirecast plugin mode

2. Open your Wirecast Studio, click on + icon in the bottom

Poll Wirecast Studio add new layer

3. Click Network > Web Page

Poll Wirecast Studio webpage source selection

4. Paste the copied URL, and fill out the width and height fields (1280 x 720). Afterwards, the layer with a game will be invisible, and the game won't start until you launch it in LiveReacting Studio.

Make sure that the layer with the Live Poll (Web Page 1) runs over the background layer. Also, make a tick on Transparent background

Wirecast Studio paste poll plugin url

5. Now, you just launch your stream via Wirecast, go back to your Live Poll project in the LiveReacting Studio, and click on Start.

Now your Live Poll must be visible to everyone. When the game is over, you can easily remove the screen with Live Poll by going back to the Studio, and clicking on End Stream button.
