You can download a free version of VidBlasterX Studio version 5 here.

Note that VidBlasterX Broadcast (the high level software version) supports multiple streamer modules, allowing you to setup multiple streams.

Inside your DaCast Account:

If you haven’t done so already, you first need to create a live channel. Go all the way through that process, up to the ENCODER SETUP part. Make sure to remember or write down the name of your live channel for future reference.
