What is an encoder and how does it relate to Dacast?

An encoder is software or hardware that converts from one format or code to another. It is integral in doing live streaming.

Over Dacast, you can use any encoder that outputs into RTMP or HLS. If you have never used an encoder before or are unfamiliar with what this is, we recommend starting with our customized version of our OBS Studio. This software is free and will allow you to start streaming in few clicks.
