Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make a Playlist for VOD files?

You absolutely can make a Playlist for VOD. This can be done under the ‘Live’ section by configuring a series of videos in a playlist that can be set to start at a scheduled time.

Can I stream on-demand VOD content with Dacast?

Yes, you can. Creating video-on-demand content over Dacast requires uploading media files to our network of servers. Next, you would configure your uploaded content and get it ready to publish.

How do I encode my videos before I upload them?

Unless you are creating all of your own content, most of the videos you stream will require some sort of licensing. These include things like model releases, geo and referrer restrictions, advertising contracts, and revenue-sharing with content creators.

Do you support multi-bitrate auto encoding for VOD?

Yes, we do. The encoding process can take some time, depending on file size. After setup, viewers will see an HD symbol next to the full-screen icon. Auto is the default, selecting the best quality based on their connection speed. If you want to encode to different resolutions, you have the option to change the format.

What are the differences between the iframe and object embed codes?

The “iframe” is used when embedding live content. While this could mean a live video, it doesn’t have to. It is describing content that is live on another domain or subdomain. “object” is used when embedding an external resource, such as a plugin.

What is the difference between VOD and OTT?

VOD means “video on demand,” and OTT means “over-the-top.” A lot of VOD services use OTT technology to bring the content to their viewers, but OTT can also apply to live streaming. They are often used side-by-side, but they are not mutually exclusive.
