I share the player view screen over Skype too. I have a second monitor showing it for players at the table and we use skype for 1-2 people out of town. There is also a webcam set up so we can see them and they, us. Our only real issue has been that my bandwidth is terrible since I am out of the city. Top is 15 mbps down and 1 mbps up. This does cause problems sometimes when random uploads start with Onedrive.

The last couple of sessions, we have had a problem as Skype only wants to share the screen of my laptop, not the second monitor. An update seems to have messed it up for some reason (or so I am guessing). Sill working on figuring this out.

I currently use Google Hangouts for my screensharing and voice chat needs. I like being able to tell it just to share a particular application window rather than a screen, so I don't have to worry about accidentally revealing what my other applications are showing.

I use Google Meet and Join.me regularly for bushiness and fun.

Increasingly I am using Google Meet as it continues to improve and expect I'll be able to dump my Join.me subscription soon.

This is interesting, I didn't know you could screen share with Skype. I'll have to look into that and see if it would work better for what I'm trying to do.

Lots of media options.

Something like Justin.TV is free to stream to.
But that depends on the quality you're streaming, and the cost of bandwidth.

I backed XSplit Broadcaster back in the day, and that's an easy program to stream with.
But there are free ones out there too.

I've streamed character creation (NPCs), with Hero Lab.
Kind of a neat process, with the audience helping to make something.
