    I need to setup SoundFlower properly so that I can do live streaming of audio. I have 3 (I think) audio sources:
    1) My USB headset's mic
    2) The people from Skype
    3) My computer's audio

    I can stick all those into SoundFlower, but, when doing a live stream, they can hear everything BUT me. This is because my voice isn't actually being outputted through SoundFlower. My workaround is to use Audacity to record my USB headset's mic, and playback what I'm saying while it's recording. This works, but I'll then be hearing myself talking, and there will be a delay, which is VERY annoying.

    Does everyone understand what I'm trying to do? It is a bit confusing, but I'd really like to get this going. There's gotta be a way to do it.

    Same problem

    Hi BeSweeet,
    Have you figured out a better solution to this? I need to do the same as you. I have read online that people are using Audiocity and Soundflower so that they can hear themselves but that sounds ridiculous too.
