Understanding embedded players:

Embedded players are media players enclosed in an HTML document or other web space, such as a forum, by using the ActiveX and or Netscape plug-in for that player. This plug-in often refers to Flash video, the most common format choice for content streamed over the internet, or HTML5.

Dacast supports a dual-embed approach. Using either an iframe or JS (Javascript code), you can embed a player into the HTML of a website. This code will then dynamically change based on the device that views it. For example, desktops receive a Flash version, while mobile devices receive an HTML version of the player.

Using your embedded player:

Embedded players are simple to use! Furthermore, you don’t need to create a special embed tailored to individual viewers viewing methods.

To access these embed codes, click on a channel or video and go to embedded players . In general, the iframe embed code works UNLESS you use website referral restrictions. In that case, you need to use the JS code instead.

    How much resources will I need in my landing page if I embed the DaCast code? Will it need to be a dedicated server? Or how does it work?

      Hi Alvaro, I hope you are well. Sorry I did not get the part of how much resources? You won’t need a dedicated server as we are using servers from the international content delivery network Akamai, which has servers all around the world. Let me know if you have any further questions. Best
