Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need extra software to live stream from my webcam?
No! The great thing about this feature is if you have a webcam and a Dacast account, you have everything you need to create a live stream right now.
Will my broadcast still be encrypted?
Yes! When you broadcast content from your webcam, Dacast will protect and encrypt your content.
Are there additional fees to use this feature?
No! Anyone with a Dacast account can use WebRTC to broadcast directly from their webcam for free. At Dacast, we believe it should be easy to connect via video with your viewers, which is why we are making WebRTC free for all users.
Will the quality of my broadcast be lower because I am using a webcam?
No! The quality of your broadcast will not be compromised because you are streaming from your webcam. Just like with other forms of live streaming on Dacast, you are able to determine the quality level of your stream for your viewers.
Can I use my webcam to live stream to China?
Yes! You can use your webcam to live stream anywhere in the world. You can use WebRTC with other Dacast features, such as China live streaming and multi-CDN support. Using a webcam doesn’t limit your use of Dacast; it expands the possibilities.
What type of latency will I experience broadcasting from my webcam?
WebRTC, the technology behind using your webcam to stream, offers near real-time latency with less than 0.1s delay. That means what your viewer is seeing, and what you are doing, is only different by 0.1 seconds. That is as close to being on the same page as you can get with live content!
What does WebRTC stand for?
WebRTC stands for Web Real-Time Communication. It is a form of technology that allows web applications to seamlessly capture and stream audio and video. WebRTC can also be used to send data between browsers directly, with the use of an intermediary. It helps provide for fast, stable, and secure communication. It works without needing to use any additional software or plugins.
Is WebRTC hard to use?
No! WebRTC is as simple as it gets. Plugin your webcam, start Dacast, choose the setting for your broadcast, and go live!
