    Do you want everybody to see what you are up to or just a single person, you can use screen sharing and if you want to do this you have to enable this in The Sharing Preferences in System Preferences.

    No What I actually want to do is to be able to have my screen like an output source (e.g. isight camera)

    Sorry if I misunderstand but it's still not clear, what do you want?
    Output source, you mean like (physical) output towards a recording device?

    Edit: Or is screen recording what you need?

    Sorry about that! Ok. So lets say, to my stream viewers, I want them to see my screen - not my face (through facetime camera). Is it possible to select 'screen' or something as an output source or something to show my viewers? And no it has nothing to do with a recording device. Hopefully I'm more clear but please tell me if youre still confused

    Now it's clear, I thought I asked in my first post.

    If those people are all on a computer you can use screen sharing for this.

    I am not aware of other Apps and programs which allows you to output the screen.
