FaceBook Live, YouTube, etc.  To do this you would have to log in to the account (Facebook, YouTube, etc) that you want to use.  Then  that platform will see the Web Presenter as a webcam. 

Hook up a USB cable from your laptop to the front USB port on the Web Presenter.  This is USB-C on the Web Presenter.

 The media MUST be encoded as 1080i (upper field first) ProRes 29.97 .   If media is not encoded as this it may not playback correctly or at all. 

Here is an Adobe Media Encoder preset -  Hyperdeck Pro-Res422 1080i29.97

Also, make sure that the RECORD MODE is set to ProRes.   The media must be encoded as ProRes and the Hyperdeck must be set up to record in ProRes.  If this doesn't match the playback will fail.
