    If you want to make your video inaccessible, you must turn off the VOD or live stream.

    How to Turn Off Streaming on VOD

    In order to turn off Dacast live streaming or any VOD, you must navigate to the content and click Description. From there, you can toggle the VOD file, live stream, package or playlist to Off like so:

    Doing so will not only make the video inaccessible but if the content was monetized, it will disable the paywall preventing future people from buying the content.

    Turning Live Channels Back On

    To make it clear, in the case of live channels, the stream will not automatically turn back on again once you start to stream through the encoder. You will have to go back into Description and manually toggle it On again before this will happen.

    If you stream often and offer a free stream, we recommend just leaving the channel on to make it easy to begin streaming again during your event or programming.
