Hello there what do you want to live stream please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I want to be taking video on the camera, and live streaming it over the internet. I am working with someone who wants to get the video from the camera to a Mac over a HDMI connection, and then live stream it using software she has on the Mac.
I have a Sony DSCHX400V and also a Canon VIXMA HFG10.
She has had no success getting from the Canon to her Mac.
I have connected the Sony to a TV over HDMI; the camera screen goes dead, and what usually appears on the camera screen now appears on the TV. Like using the TV as a monitor. But this is no good for live streaming because of the writing on the screen.
I am in Pacific time where it is now 7:45 am. I am meeting with the Mac person at 9 am.
