Live Encoder Settings: How to Unsubscribe to Encoding Emails
Dacast has a feature that sends you an email when a video file has finished encoding. This is done to make sure it’s compatible across our system.
This feature can be disabled so you don’t receive email notifications if you don’t want to.
In order to unsubscribe from these emails, log in to your Dacast account, and go to “Account.” Go to “Profile,” and scroll down to the bottom of the page.
You will see “Email Notifications,” and there will be an option called “Video Uploaded.” Turn this from the “ON” position to the “OFF” position to stop receiving them.
Click “Save” to finish:
