How Does Dacast Handle IP Video Country Restrictions?


Dacast uses MaxMind, relying on its GeoIP2 databases and web services. The databases are stated as among the most accurate IP video geolocation databases available, using the IP of the viewer to detect their country of origin.

Through integrating this technology with our own services, Dacast is able to do very accurate country detection to ensure that your content is only being viewed by approved countries when you choose to use these geo-restriction features.
