Pros
Overall it is very good and solved several problems I was having. A few more tweaks and it will be a perfect solution for us.

AB

Angelo B.

The feature I love the most is that while I share my screen the camera has great size as opposed to being a small thumbnail in one corner. I love the layouts while sharing.

HC

Hector C.

The customer service experience has been wonderful and the pricing is really worth the investment. I am very satisfied with this product.

Cons
I have trouble with volume from time to time, and it does have trouble with connection from time to time.

JC

Justin C.

The one thing that we miss coming from OBS is being unable to further customize the layout.

YY

Having to sing in every time makes it hard and frustrating.

The BEST Streaming Software

Reviewed 3 months ago

My experience has been phenomenal. I love it and would recommend it to everyone who does live-streaming.

Pros

The best part about Melon is EVERYTHING LOL.. Multicasting, monetizing your content, live chat and the stream labs integration is dope as well.

Cons

Right now nothing. I’m happy. It’s FULLY serving my needs.

Powerful and easy to use

Reviewed a year ago

I'm loving that Melon allows my team to go live quickly and easily on multiple platforms simultaneously without straining our computers, laptops, or phones/tablets, we can all share screens and it is extremely simple for non-tech savvy guests to get onto our streams. It's also great not hearing my system fans all spool up instantly like some local solutions do because of how demanding they are.

Pros

What I liked most starting my journey with Melon is the available features, responsiveness of the developer and support teams, the regularity with which they add functionality at the request of users and how quickly they respond to anything not working as expected. I joined during the beta and have been recommending Melon to all my friends.

Cons

What I liked least were when I had glitches while support was offline, they got in touch with me immediately upon their return. I understand with these prices 24/7 365 isn't to be expected but it was also partly on me for choosing to go live at odd hours of the day, to be fair in 6 months I've only had two short partial outages and one that was a connection to a single streaming service and engineering resolved it very quickly once support showed them what I found.

Vendor response

Hello Kacey! thank you so much for your positive feedback, it's a pleasure to assist you with your needs. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any suggestions / questions, we listen and improve daily. Your Melon team

Essential for streaming these days

Reviewed 16 days ago

Great! I was happy to get their lifetime deal and likely one of the better LTD purchases I have done. But seeing their quality, I can also recommend using it while you'd be on monthly subscriptions. With Melon you have no excuse to delay your social streaming as Melon is taking care of the heavy technical side on your behalf.

Pros

Great UX and performance. Basically very intuitive, so that even when using it for the first time, it is easy to figure out how to use it. While they might be a startup, the UX is certainly very mature already. It is also handy when you don't have the latest fancy powerful laptop, as Melon works over the internet, the video processing happens there as well, so that my laptop does not need to pull that much, Melon is taking care of most of processing.

Cons

Only thing I noticed that sometimes when you wish to download the session recordings, then it might be a bit slower side to download. I somehow assume that the recordings are loaded in some cloud servers further away from me (likely in the US, not in Europe or Asia), however, it does not impact the stream quality.

Vendor response

Hello Timo and thank you for your review! We are very excited to keep serving you and improve for you. Melon team

Melon, my new choice for livestreaming

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

I had been using Streamyard to do live streaming. I was looking for something easy to set up and use, so Streamyard seemed to be the only option I could find. I wasn't completely satisfied with their UX/UI and while it was easy, I just never embraced it. I stopped streaming for a while, so I stopped my monthly Streamyard sub. I then saw a person on YouTube talking about Melon. It caught my attention...

Cons

A few features I'd like to see are being able to add a guest as a 'voice' only guest. Sometimes I need someone to just help me and another artist by reading comments for us to answer, but they don't need to show up on the stream!

Vendor response

hello John! thank you so much for your feedback and kind words, it means a lot! We keep growing and listening to our folks, hopefully will add a requested feature soon as well. thank you and happy streaming! Melon team
