Yes, you can live broadcast over the Dacast platform on your smartphone. Almost all RTMP (real-time messaging protocol) sources, including smartphone apps, will work over Dacast. However, you want to make sure the mobile streaming app supports your login and password. This is a security requirement to stream over the Limelight network which is one of the CDNs that Dacast uses.
1. Wirecast GO
For users who want to stream HTML5 channels from their Apple iPhone or other iOS Device using an iOS RTMP live streaming app, we recommend the Wirecast GO mobile streaming application. This app supports the login and password method and has been tested over iOS devices. Wirecast GO costs $5.99 to stream to any RTMP encoder enabled destination. You do not need to use the desktop version of the Wirecast software encoder to use the Wirecast GO app.
2. Larix Broadcaster App
Another option for mobile broadcasting is the Larix Broadcaster App. You can log into your Dacast account on this app and stream right through Larix, so you can start mobile live streaming in minutes.
