    Step 1: Choose the Content to Embed

    To get started, log in to your Dacast account. Find the video you want to embed and click the “Edit” button:

    Step 2: Find and Copy the Embed Code

    Navigate to the “Sharing” section under the “General” tab and copy the “Embed Code” with the copy icon: 

    There are two types of embed codes available: JS (Javascript) and iframe.

    We recommend using the JS embed code because it’s more universally compatible with the full-screen feature. The JS embed code is also a requirement in order for the URL referral restriction feature to work (which restricts content based on the websites allowed to host it).

    Step 3: Copy / paste the embed code on to your website

    The embed codes will look like this:

    Iframe: <iframe src=”https://iframe.dacast.com/live/1232b01xxxxxxx79b1710fc4e2/76243f91-d991-cf44-2bf0-b82231220f1f” width=“100%” height=”100%“ frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no” allow=”autoplay” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen></iframe>

    JS: <script id=”4baf2cb0172aeaa31e8a79b1710fc4e2-live-xxxxxxx-d991-cf44-2bf0-b8ca42b20f1f” width=”100%” height=”100%” src=”https://player.dacast.com/js/player.js?contentId=4baf2cb0172aeaa31e8a79b1710fc4e2-live-76243f91-d991-cf44-2bf0-b8ca42b20f1f”  class=”dacast-video”></script>

    Note: You can modify these values to set the video player size to a size more appropriate for your website by removing the “%” sign and replacing the values on your preferred size as shown below. 

    Iframe: <iframe src=”https://iframe.dacast.com/live/1232b01xxxxxxx79b1710fc4e2/76243f91-d991-cf44-2bf0-b82231220f1f” width=“1920 height=”1080“ frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no” allow=”autoplay” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen></iframe>

    JS: <script id=”4baf2cb0172aeaa31e8a79b1710fc4e2-live-xxxxxxx-d991-cf44-2bf0-b8ca42b20f1f” width=“1920” height=”1080“ src=”https://player.dacast.com/js/player.js?contentId=4baf2cb0172aeaa31e8a79b1710fc4e2-live-76243f91-d991-cf44-2bf0-b8ca42b20f1f”  class=”dacast-video”></script>

    Once everything is done, the code is now ready to be embedded on your webpage.
