      What is a White-Label Streaming Service?

      white-label video
      A white-label streaming service uses a custom video player that reflects your branding rather than third-party branding.

      In the business world, a white-label product is manufactured by one company and sold to other companies to be repackaged and sold with their own branding.

      In the streaming world, in particular, white-label video streaming means broadcasting your content without districting logos or links that lead back to the provider’s page. 

      A white-label streaming service is an online video platform that is equipped with a white-label video player and the tools need to customize it to make it your own. This type of platform gives you the power to deliver distraction-free video content. Gone are the days of third-party restrictions that interfere with your content and viewers’ experience. 

      White-label video players are nothing new. JW Player, for example, has been serving this need for over a decade to those tech-savvy enough to implement them. However, the integration of white-label players into video platforms like Dacast is still fairly new in the streaming world.

      With newer integrations with easy-to-navigate video platforms, white-label streaming services no longer requires a technical background to get started. This means that more broadcasters than ever can benefit from white-label video players in order to promote their unique online video content.

      Benefits of Using a White-Label Video Player

      White-Label Video Player
      Dacast’s white-label video player includes ad-free streaming and full branding control.

      The list of benefits that come with a white-label streaming service is miles long. White-label video streaming platforms don’t just provide clean and professional video players to broadcasters. They typically offer additional flexibility for branding, video monetization, organization, and more. 

      In particular, white-label video streaming means you can incorporate your own logo in your video content. This feature helps to foster greater recognition of your brand and product to your viewers. 

      Additionally, white-label video players support the aesthetic and functional customization of your content and page. Some examples of cosmetic customizations include colors and fonts.

      The Dacast video player prioritizes white-label functions and features. The grounding idea is that broadcasters maintain ownership of their own content throughout the streaming process. This ownership is true both from a legal perspective and from the perspective of your viewers.

      Unlike free providers like YouTube, Dacast does not claim ownership of your content. Likewise, Dacast does not void any of your rights as a broadcaster. 

      Our video player is free of Dacast logos and provides ad-free streaming. Instead, you have full branding control of your content with a fully customizable and embeddable HTML5 video player.

      The Rise of White-Label Video Conferencing

      Since the world has begun to rely more and more on telecommunication and remote work, the need for white-label video conferences has grown.

      Some video platforms offer real-time latency or video conferencing integrations that allow professionals to host video conferences on reliable servers without any third-party branding. 

      This allows businesses and organizations to access the benefits of an online video platform, such as advanced security, high-quality streaming, and more.

      Monetization tools would also come into play when this style of video conferencing is used for small workshops, webinars, and conferences that require participation and engagement from all participants.

      How to Customize Your HTML5 Video Player

      html5 video player
      Use preset features and video API to customize your video player.

      The exact process for customizing your video player will vary from video platform to video platform. Generally, this process involves the configuration of an array of preset features and settings to choose from in addition to access to player API.

      API access gives you the ability to customize your player beyond the standard settings. That means that if there isn’t a setting that helps you customize an aspect of the video player, you can program it manually.

      Customizing your video player with API takes a little bit more technical know-how than it does to simply change preset settings. We recommend hiring a skilled programmer if you don’t have experience with it yourself.

      On the Dacast platform, in particular, broadcasters can create and add custom themes to your media players and easily alter them to match the look and feel of your existing website.

      You can also save themes to your account, which makes it quick and easy to have many channels with the same look and feel. This means that your viewers are guaranteed a more consistent experience when accessing your content.

      Video Player Monetization

      White-Label Video Monetization
      Monetize your content by using custom monetization methods with your white-label video player.

      The Dacast platform includes white-label video monetization with an integrated paywall. With the built-in paywall, you can handle payments right in the player and your viewers can easily pay for video content before they access it. This integration allows you to control rates, offer promo codes, and provide longer time windows for fast and easy access to your content.

      Please note that due to legal obligations, the video paywall feature may not always be completely white-labeled. Some regulations require the company that powers the paywall to be named. This should not pose any issues, but you can contact Dacast support directly for further questions about this aspect of white-label video streaming.

      If the transaction involves a credit card, the email receipts will also have to reference Dacast. This is because the company also appears on the credit card statement.

      For PayPal users, there will similarly be a reference to their service and site. For broadcasters requiring no mention of Dacast at all, we offer the ability to turn off credit card payments and select only PayPal if possible.

      Customizable Paywall on Dacast

      Beyond the white-label video player, Dacast’s paywall for pay-per-view and subscription monetization can be customized to represent your brand. 

      Changes to your paywall should be done with the audience in mind. You can add pricing in different currencies so that the paywall automatically populates with the appropriate pricing based on viewers’ location.

      Video Player Customizations for Accessibility 

      Many online video platforms offer advanced customizations of their white-label video players and paywalls to enhances the accessibility of their content. This is generally done with foreign and differently-abled viewers in mind.

      Closed captioning such as CES 608 and 708 version support is a major value add on any white-label video player. This is a common courtesy for viewers who are hard of hearing, deaf, or need any other language support. Automatic translations of subtitles and other text on and around the video player make content more easily accessible to audiences in countries with different native languages. On the same token, video paywalls that automatically convert to viewers’ local currency make video monetization
