how to stream desktop/system audio
I want to stream a movie on my desktop. I want to know how can I capture desktop, system audio and stream it.

You can do this by using Procaster ( in screen capture mode. In Procaster's preferences, go to the 'Audio' tab, then 'Audio Mixer' and be sure Speaker's Audio is selected as the input source.

Thanks. And would there be a time limit to broadcasting, or i can broadcast for infinite time?

There is no streaming time limit, however recordings in your studio are capped at 5 hours.

Sorry I am confused. By "recordings in your studio are capped at 5 hours."- does that mean recording by the camera. In my case I will capture the desktop.

The five hour recording limit is the maximum length a recording can be on our servers. If you wish to broadcast longer you can, however you'll need to re-cue the source from within Studio and initiate the recording again.

If I do not record, and just boradcast - is there still any timelimit?

There is no limit on broadcasting, only recording.

I'm having an issue following this step. I'm on OS X and I've downloaded and signed into my account on Procaster, but there isn't an icon to stream my desktop. It only shows my built-in webcam as an option. I tried reinstalling Procaster to make sure it was up to date, but it didn't solve anything.

You can stream your desktop by selecting 'No Camera' as your input source when you go live.
