    I actually run a web based show that's getting pretty popular. I pull up current events and do a lot of on screen live interaction and am looking for a way to broadcast my screen while allowing either myself or my producer control the screen from a remote location. I"ll look into Chrome Direct Desktop and see if it gets me what I need. Thanks for the tips
