(CREATED FROM WIRECAST 6.0.5) 

There are 2 methods to connect your DaCast stream to your Wirecast encoder.
We recommend you to use the method #1.  

METHOD #1 (recommended): USING THE MANUAL CONFIGURATION

  • In your DaCast account

Click on your channel and go to the ENCODER SETUP.

Click on Telestream Wirecast.

Take note of the STREAM URL, STREAM NAME, LOGIN and PASSWORD located on the third panel.

  • In Wirecast 6

Open Wirecast 6 and open the OUTPUT SETTINGS window. To do so you can:

                – Click on STREAM, if you have not streamed yet

                – Press the keys CONTROL + Y, on PC or press the keys COMMAND + Y, on Mac.

When the window opens, you will be asked to “Select an Output Destination”. The destination should be “RTMP Server”. Click on OK.

Enter the stream URL and stream name and then click on SET CREDENTIALS (6-digit login and password) that you noted earlier.

You are now ready to stream: click on STREAM.

METHOD #2: DIRECT DACAST STREAMING SERVICES LOGIN

  • In your DaCast account

Create a live channel and go through the steps up through ENCODER SETUP. Note the name of the live channel that you created.

  • In Wirecast 6

Open Wirecast and open the OUTPUT SETTINGS window. To do so you can:

– Click on STREAM, if you have not streamed yet

– Press the keys CONTROL + Y, on PC or press the keys COMMAND + Y, on Mac.

When the window opens, you will be asked to “Select an Output Destination”. The destination should be “DaCast Streaming Services”. Click on OK.

In the Username field, enter the email address that you use to login to your DaCast account. Now click AUTHENTICATE, which will launch a small window asking for your password. Enter the password you use to login to your DaCast account and click OK. Now the channels below your username will populate. Click the drop down and select the name of the channel you want to stream to.

ADJUSTING THE SETTINGS

Make sure, that the stream is correctly set up for HTML5. To do so click on the clockwork icon near the ENCODING dropdown and choose EDIT or NEW PRESET.

The settings for HTML5 should be the following:

Encoder: Main Concept H.264

Width, Height, Frames per second, Average bit rate: your choice

Profile: Baseline

Key frame every: make your choice

Channels: Stereo

Target bit rate: make your choice

Sample rate: not 48 Khz or 44.1 Khz (may cause audio sync issues), try 24.00 kHz

Click SAVE or SAVE AS.

Back in the OUTPUT SETTINGS window, click on OK.

You are now ready to stream: click on STREAM.
