Can I prevent others from viewing my content over DaCast?
The short answer is yes!
Here’s how to prevent others from viewing my content in a few simple steps:
1) Disable Content Indexing:
First of all, you can disable content from being indexed on our DaCast Viewer Portal. To make this change, you can first select and click the video or live stream you’d like to make private. Next, you can click on the blue button.
Once there, you can scroll down to the “Publish on the DaCast portal” option and change the setting from ON to OFF.
2) Create a new URL:
After you have saved this change, you then have the option to provide an alternate URL. Once you make this change, the new URL will also redirect anyone who tries to access the old page, which will help to smoothly transition your content to the new URL.
If you are interested in further restricting access to your content, you may also want to read our walk-through on Referrer Group/List features of the service: http://help.dacast.com/dacast/topics/referrer_group_list_walkthrough.
Good luck, and contact us directly for further help with this or other issues!
