About this project
Cameleon allows you to instantly start a live-stream video on any of your connected social media accounts.
Live streaming is the most effective way to upload video and increase visibility. Major social networks like Facebook and YouTube prioritize live video over other content.
10 things that make Cameleon different from other vlogging and brand-name apps:
- It’s incredibly easy to use, even without prior broadcasting or video blogging experience
- It’s the first and only app to offer "Instant Live" to catch life’s spontaneous moments
- You can instantly connect to major social networks anywhere in the world
- It’s available on your mobile devices, Mac, and PC
- It has been modeled after the top Live for YouTube App on the App Store
- It allows you to turn your old smartphone into a remote video camera
- It allows simultaneous livestream (where possible) and multi-network broadcasting
- You can quickly switch between Facebook and YouTube (and other configured networks) with the tap of a button
- You can connect built-in and external cameras, USB WebCams, IP Cameras, GoPro HERO and DSLR cameras
- There is a separate audio input for superior sound during live events
Reach the world with live videos and Cameleon. What's your idea?
Most people aren’t acting on their - otherwise great - ideas because they assume it’s going to be complicated, or they don’t possess the necessary skills.
One of the most efficient ways to generate success is by connecting with people. Determination and a hidden talent made celebrities out of Susan Boyle and Leona Lewis while Casey Neistat and Justin Bieber became known worldwide, simply by posting their videos on YouTube.
Facebook gives live videos the prime placement, YouTube is dedicated to live streaming and Twitter is all about live broadcasting. Got the idea? Video blogging is a phenomenal business and if it’s live, it’s on top.

“Easy, simple and extremely powerful. The absolute must-have for everyone working with social media. It saves you a tremendous amount of time and has more features than you'll ever need.” - Moran (App Store)
What is it?
Every social network offers its own app for your smartphone, some even give you tools for Windows and Mac. Other companies may let you connect USB cameras, WebCams, IP cameras, GoPro and DSLR. The time has come to bring all this power together with the usability and convenience of one, beautifully-simple app.

Already a PRO? Time to save time!
Up until now there wasn't any simple and, straightforward way to grab your camera, tap a button and start streaming live to your audience. There was always some voodoo to be performed before (and after) your video got published. Fortunately, Cameleon has demonstrated that non-techies, children and old folks can all start their live broadcast right after the app is installed. Pros quickly realized that Cameleon is better, faster, saves time and provides the same quality. No brainer. Check out our users or post your feature request.
Do Only What You Do Best!
As content creator with over 60k published photos and videos, I learned to value free time. Switched camera gear just because it was a bit faster to start up or 10% faster to use. Now, we’re using this experience and doing the same with live streaming: reducing complexity and significantly improving production speed. The result is a light, breezy app that does exactly what most bloggers, videographers and content creators need: get the highest possible quality, fast.
How many times did you miss a moment just because it took time to set up your live streaming? Instant Live was first introduced by Cameleon in 2016.
Capture that Moment
Livestreaming a sudden event takes just over 2 seconds with Instant Live enabled. We're doing something similar with Live Broadcaster for Windows and Mac. Presets and personalized buttons help you skip the setup and preparation. Switching between YouTube and Facebook (or your preferred media server) takes less than a second and streaming simultaneously to multiple networks (where allowed) takes a click. By implementing Chat and Comments, everything is in front of you. No need for multitasking, all becomes a one-handed job, leaving the other hand free for a coffee.
The simplest live streaming app is getting remade from scratch!
Despite the dramatic simplicity in Cameleon 2.0, there were users who still asked the “how to.” By implementing analytics on every page, we could track where people spent too much time with figuring out the next step. The continuous feedback led to removal of obstacles with every new release. Even with all of these changes we got stuck with some details.
Live Broadcaster is based on a very simple idea: live broadcasting is all about instant decisions, there is no time for setup or fine-tuning. We needed a new approach, where everything is in front of the user and is reachable with a single tap, instantly if the moment needs it. We needed a one page app. Here's what the fully redesigned Cameleon looks like:
Save up-to 99% on Retail
Pick any of the perks and you'll get a special, fully-functional version of Live Broadcaster for Mac, Windows and iPad/iPhone.
2017 is about to change the Internet. Live being the new "thing" and Cameleon Live Broadcaster, with its crystal clear simplicity, helps you start your live event with the click of a button, on almost any network, using almost any kind of camera, using the same app. That is as efficient and convenient as it can be.
Recycle your old iPhone
Cameleon turns your old iPhone into a remote video camera that can be used anywhere to record (until it is connected to the Internet or local Wi-Fi network). *Live for iPhone can easily be implemented to Android if our goals are reached.
Input and Output
Cameleon is updated on a regular basis to provide input for standard and widely used audio/video devices like USB webcams, built-in cameras, GoPro, CCTV/IP cameras, DSLR and digital VCRs. It also offers a separate audio-input specially designed for DJs and video professionals. Outputs include YouTube and Facebook live, followed by Weibo and any other major social network that offers access through API. All media servers are supported via RTMP:
Cameleon has seven programmable buttons and easy to access configuration files that can be used for configuration-overrides and presets, including titles, description and video tags. You can use them to control whatever you want!
En Vivo 直播 ライブ жить
We have translations for Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Russian, Japanese, German and Arabic. We’re planning to support Polish, Hebrew, Korean, French, Italian and Hungarian as time, funding and interest permits.
Cameleon apps are already popular, with nearly 100,000 downloads. Working prototypes, betas and fully functional alphas are ready for Windows, Mac and iPhone. Features may be missing or not yet available for every platform. Beta software always has a few kinks to work out, but people in the Facebook group will help you to get it working.
Explore New Possibilities
The majority of live streaming apps will allow you to broadcast to number of social networks and gaming video servers from your PC, Mac or mobile device. Live Broadcaster goes further by utilizing your GoPro, DSLR, Video Camcorder, IP Camera and virtually any USB camera for live broadcasting - endless possibilities. For professional users we're including targets like RTMP media servers, Adobe Media Server, Wowza, Nginix RTMP/HLS Module, Red5, Codem, ErlyVideo, Flumotion, GMediaServer, MistServer, RubyIZUMI, RTMPlite and more.
Work with a little illumination!
“Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. People think it’s this veneer – that the designers are handed this box and told, ‘Make it look good!’ That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” – Steve Jobs
A great user interface is all about helping the user to accomplish a given task as simply and efficiently as possible. With Cameleon we set a goal, to eliminate the complicated and provide a beautiful, simple design. We started from complex live streaming solutions and simplified them to the absolute minimum, just what 99% of users will need, keeping the focus on ease of use.
Live Broadcaster takes UI a step further by eliminating all elements and functions that weren't used during the past year and moving everything to the main screen. We're transforming Cameleon for desktop into a one page app and giving it the best and most beautiful UI we've ever created.
Power And Simplicity
Cameleon is way more sophisticated than most would think based on its UI. We've spent a half-decade delivering technology for world-famous software and livestreaming products. After two years of progress with Cameleon, we're creating professional broadcasting solutions for those, ready to save time or who are less tech-savvy.
During 2016 Cameleon was downloaded 45,000 times and our apps are exceeding the 50,000 downloads per month on the App Store. We managed to maintain a near 5-Star rating and the highest customer satisfaction by providing something they already had. We just made it better, faster and way more affordable. Now, with your help, we're speeding up the release of the completely new Cameleon Live Broadcaster that will take all the above a step further.
The goal is to enable everyone, in every corner of the world to broadcast whatever they'd like to the social network of their choice. Your support is helping not just the development but also extending to the areas where Facebook and YouTube are not available by including social networks like Sina Weibo and RenRen.
Live Broadcaster users are welcome to send ideas and feature requests to our Facebook Group and take part in building the simplest and easiest to use live broadcaster in the world! :-)

Risks and challenges
Risks with the software: We've spent a half-decade on engineering video-software and live streaming products and already created two successful broadcaster applications since Cameleon was started. Our solutions always meet the highest standards of quality, performance and ease of use. There could be special cases and situations where some unexpected scenarios will give us a hard time, in such cases we will do our best to give prompt answers.
Risk with the hardware: Regarding the new cameras we test every year, we spend months testing the cameras and the manufacturers for support and issues. For any concerns that may arise we will notify our backers promptly and work quickly to deliver the best solution.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
