Live streaming uses Apple's HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology. HLS requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later, or a PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. Streaming via Apple TV requires an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software 6.2 or later or an Apple TV (4th generation).
Just DAYS after inmate 'trouser-trout' sends his new iPhone back because it's not very good with file handling. :-)
Who said G*d doesn't have a sense of humor?
...It was a need that you recognized and it's coming, but a bit late. Some would say, it's about time.

I was surprised at how long it took Apple to make a window re-sizeable from any edge or corner instead of just one single corner. I think Microsoft had that as an exclusive for over a decade, which left me scratching my head. It doesn't seem like it would require a rocket surgeon to add that extremely useful feature.
It took them a while to get onboard with a two button mouse. Apple used a one button mouse for years but I wasn't using Mac during that time. I made the switch to Mac when they adopted Intel architecture over PowerPC CPUs about 10 years ago.

I didn't know they ever went beyond two buttons, but that could easily be my own ignorance. The only time I used a Mac was back around 2009 so I could write the instructions for connecting a USB DAC. The least expensive was a Mac-Mini (with the Intel processor), but I supplied the keyboard, mouse, and display. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Apple programs *responded* to right-button mouse clicks on my existing mouse, but I don't recall that Apple had one available - at least at that time.
Their current offering apparently has a top surface sensitive to multi-finger gestures. Personally that whole idea seems somewhat counter-intuitive and reminds me of the '70s-era Saturday Night Live "spoof" commercial for the early digital wristwatch that was so advanced "it required three hands to operate".
I started using Macs only a year or two prior to your 2009 experience with the Mac Mini. It's been a while but I seem to recall having to go into System Preferences > Mouse in order to enable the right mouse button for two button operation.
I own the previous generation AA battery powered Apple mouse that has a smooth top surface for finger gestures. I use it when I travel because it's flat and packs well in my laptop bag. Otherwise I prefer the feel of real buttons and a real scroll wheel in my older Logitech.
Apple Magic Mouse 2 is rechargeable. My older model uses AA batteries but looks the same.
I prefer my Logitech mouse similar to this one for daily use at my desk.
Some early Apple one-button mice.
Which is Great! ..... For sure I'll give it another try.
....for those who really needed it.
