How to Create HTML5 Live Channels
To create an HTML5 live channel that is mobile-friendly, all you must do is click Add + in the dashboard or select Live Stream.
After clicking this, the following popup menu will appear:
At this point, you are ready to create an HLS Live Streaming channel that can be accessed by both desktop and mobile viewers. Select the Source Region where you will be streaming from and the number of renditions you want to stream at.
Note: depending on your plan, you may not have access to the other channel creation options such as “Advanced Streaming” shown above but all channel options on the Dacast platform result in HLS live streams.

All plans have a default limit of 20 live channels, however, we are more than happy to allow as many channels as you need.
