    Yes, just like any other streaming on Dacast, streaming on Facebook consumes video bandwidth. The more people that watch the video, the more bandwidth your Dacast account uses. It doesn’t matter if it’s via your site or Facebook

    Bandwidth is treated the same, no matter where the viewer is accessing the content. This applies to viewers on social networks like Facebook, your own website and also the Dacast video portal service.

    When you run out of bandwidth, you will need to purchase additional gigabytes to keep streaming.
