Here are some valuable resources that can help you to create better Periscope videos.
Periscope only saves a replay of your live stream for 24 hours, so first make sure you have enabled Replays by selecting “AutoSave Broadcasts” then use AirParrot® to sync and stream your broadcast from your mobile to your computer, where it can be saved.
Try or buy for only $14.99
Another alternative to AirParrot®, ideally suited for Apple devices (and most recently, Android).
$24.99 for a business license.
Be sure to create Twitter hashtags specifically for your Periscope livestreams—but don’t do this blindly. Register them at Hashtags.org to make them instantly more powerful and searchable—and search to make sure your hashtag hasn’t already been taken by someone else.
Hashtag registration is free—but if you want concentrated hashtag tracking done by Hashtags.org, there are paid options at various prices.
And be sure to check out their guide to creating powerful hashtags too: How to Start a Twitter Hashtag.
Minisuit Selfie-Stick Pro With Built-In Remote On Handle For GoPro Apple-Android Phones
Avoid the dreaded shoulder scrunch if you’re doing a “talking head” livestream. Use a selfie stick with built in remote.
The Glif Adjustable Tripod Mount
One way to eliminate camera shake, if you’re not actually walking around—use a tripod.
Get it from Amazon as they are usually top-notch at returns or replacements, if there’s a problem: Plus you can easily see what other accessories and go-withs are available—or find the right comparable model for your specific smart phone.
CameraSharp Anti-Shake App
I hate nothing more than a video where the camera isn’t being held steady and it’s shaking all over the place. It gives me a terrible headache.
If your iPhone camera doesn’t have anti-shake, be sure to download this handy app for only $2.29 (or find a comparable anti-shake app for your Apple device model in the iTunes store).
Use effects like slow motion with your iPhone by using a filter such as this one ($3.99 on sale, at time of writing).
Split Lens 2 Clone Photo Video Editor
If you can get this to work with your particular iPhone or iPad, this is a filter that can really wow your viewers.
(Requires iOS 6.0 or later.)
Remember: You can always import your livestream replay over to your computer using software like AirParrot® or AirServer® for saving and editing.
And it’s free. Find out more here.
