    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. Read our full article HERE (video and written tutorial) to connect your Larix app to Dacast for live streaming, in a few simple steps. In addition to streaming from a mobile app, Dacast allows you to stream to a mobile app. With the help of video APIs and mobile SDKs, you can build an app of your own. Explore our player API to integrate other great apps to enhance your live streaming experience. Our technology comes with resources for creating apps for both Android and iOS devices.
