Create an IOS/Android App to Listen to Dacast Streams

Yes, it is possible to create an iOS or Android app to listen to streams hosted on Dacast.

In fact, mobile streaming is becoming more and more important for both audio and video, and Dacast is fully equipped with the tools you need to make it a success.

In this post, we’re going to touch upon building a mobile app for the videos you host on Dacast and how to broadcast from your smartphone or mobile device.

Mobile Streaming: Building an App 

As we mentioned, mobile streaming is becoming huge. Dacast uses an HTML5 video player that is universal among both Android and iOS devices. This means that no matter where you embed the video player, it can be accessed from pretty much any device.

With the help of mobile SDKs from Dacast, you can create and customize your mobile app relatively easily. 

Broadcasting from Your Phone

You can also broadcast from your smartphone with the help of third-party services, like Larix Broadcaster.

This capability is helpful for broadcasters who want to live stream on the go, especially if you’re covering a special event or location that doesn’t have a broadcasting studio.

If you have any questions about mobile streaming or need help with this Dacast feature, feel free to contact us directly.
