    Dynamic Adaptive Live Stream Transcoding is the process that allows you to stream one HD stream to an online video platform or dedicated server, and automatically create multiple stream renditions (or files of different qualities and sizes).

    This is made possible by transcoding it into different bitrates and resolutions to allow adaptive playback. These renditions are delivered to an adaptive player that automatically selects the best one for the viewer based on their devices and the quality of their internet connection.

    Dacast does not support Dynamic Adaptive Live Stream Transcoding at this time.

    However, Dacast does provide a fully adaptive player. To provide your viewers with a similar experience, you can use the multi-bitrate streaming method. Do this by setting up several different qualities to stream in your encoder. One of these will be selected automatically once the viewer starts to watch based on the device and quality of the internet connection.
