A feature a lot of users have requested: in mimoLive 4.5.1, the new Play, Pause and Resume mode for movie sources allows you to pause and resume playback of a movie.

At photokina 2018, Marc Ludwig and his team from fototv.de were charged with running a presentation stage with a live stream for the Wedding Zone, an area on the world’s largest photography trade show dedicated to wedding photography. “We’ve produced and streamed over 20 shows live in the past two days - no hiccups,” says Marc about his experience using mimoLive on their Macs. “It has been working flawlessly. We couldn’t do it without mimoLive.” The setup uses a front camera and an additional side view as well as an HDMI video input that allows guests to bring presentations on their own laptops or mobile phones. All is tied together with mimoLive and spiced up with lower thirds and other graphics as well as b-roll video. “A technology that’s just amazing,” Marc concludes, “it does an outstanding job for us here at the Wedding Zone.”
