Self-Hosted Livestream Alternatives

An early livestreaming site that has gone by the wayside compared to more popular alternatives due to its commercial, pay-to-use nature, Livestream has persisted in part due to its robust mobile support and its ability to stream using both a dedicated desktop app and a web browser-based solution.

Other livestreaming solutions have grown since the popularization of the concept, with many alternatives to Livestream incorporating engaging social networking elements to help you cultivate and grow a potential audience for your streams. In addition to this, several of these very alternatives are free to use and have much more populated user bases for you to cultivate a large (or at least a cult) following!
