Is it possible to record a live stream automatically for VOD playback?

35 views August 24, 2017 admin 0

DaCast has recently enabled the Auto Archiving feature allowing anybody to have a recording of their stream in the VOD section of their account automatically. This feature is still in beta test and may encounter some inconsistencies which is why we don’t enable it on every account.

If you want to be part of the beta and test it out, you may reach to us directly on the live chat and we will enable it for you. 

That said, you can also use your encoder to save a local copy of your live stream. This video file can then be upload to DaCast or another video platform for your viewers to watch it.

If you want to learn more, please consult the two guides below, although any software encoder should have this feature or a similar one:
