I know its not the best solution but I am going to test it and see if I have any issues. This will allow me to use Wirecast to mix my camera's and then capture the output with Procaster and send it out as High and Mobile.
That sounds like it will work but the main issue would then be audio and framerate... Sounds like a good plan for now. Livestream basically has said to me 'use Procaster'. When I explain that I need more than one input in order to facilitate a professional production (4 cams, 2 comps + graphics & overlays) and that Wirecast has the ability to send out multiple streams, they tell me that Procaster is the only option for multiple bitrate streaming. I fail to see why they can't just give me settings for Wirecast since it allows me to configure independent streams easily.

HOWEVER, the new beta which is lauching (or has launched) and will go UN-beta in the spring, will do conversion on the fly. In otherwords, we upload one HD stream, livestream will down convert to other resolutions through the backend. That is ideal, so I will gladly wait it out for that option. I would love to see a solid response from them though! Love livestream, just want to use Wirecast and not Procaster.
