    It doesn’t appear that DaCast is in the list of providers when I downloaded the MAC version. Can you point me to the correct version to download or the correct settings to use in the custom provider?

      You should be able to find the last version from your manager account: when you edit one of your live streaming, in “Encoder Setup”, DaCast OBS is available for download.
      From there, in the DaCast OBS setting, select Stream and you should be able to find “DaCast” in the stream types!

    Hello
    I have the same problem with MAC Download.
    It doesn’t appear that DaCast is in the list of providers when I downloaded the MAC version. Can you point me to the correct version to download or the correct settings to use in the custom provider?

    • Etienne Noualhat says:

      Hey Salvador! Of course.
      You would need to go to settings > stream tab > stream type and you should find the last version that you can use with Mac!
      Let me know if that helps you.

        I’m experiencing the same probably as these other two and none of this advice helped me. I downloaded the agent twice and it won’t appear anywhere on my computer. I have no way of opening dacast obs or finding it on my computer

    I was able to get OBS DaCast to show up after deleting OBS Studio on my MacBook Pro. I want to be able to use OBS Studio so a tutorial using custom settings to do so would be great.

    The video links are still the same. Can you provide the link to the video for using the regular version of OBS

    If you choose “custom streaming server” in the stream list and then regenerate the stream key from Dacast, plug that key into OBS, it will populate the stream type as Decast streaming as a service. Worked for me.
