      Dacast - Live Streaming - Which Dacast Embed Code Should I Use?

      Dacast provides two embed code options for live streaming: JS and iframe. Both of these work for playback on your website or app via desktop and mobile devices as long as the content itself supports it. The JS embed code is the default embed code for Dacast, and it supports the most features. This includes being responsive if the elements are designed inside is a different size and working with the referrer restriction feature. 

      To embed it in a WordPress website for instance, just copy and paste it in your article. This must be done in the “text” mode.

      The iframe embed code is the most universally compatible embed code. The caveat is that some features do not work with it. 

      This embed code is not responsive, which means it’s a fixed size. The full-screen feature is also sometimes removed. This usually happens only if you are using iframes within iframes. 

      Additionally, the URL based referrer restriction feature does not work with the iframe embed.

      Any questions or need help/access to this feature? Please contact us.
