With Castr Pre-Recorded Video livestreaming, you can schedule and stream pre-recorded videos live to social media platforms on a set date and time.
This article will show you how to best leverage streaming pre-recorded videos with Cast by adding one or more existing streams on Castr as destinations.
Pre-recorded video streaming is available on all Castr's subscription plans. However, if you want to stream pre-recorded videos with an HTML5 player, make sure you are using our All in One streaming plans.
What is Adding Stream within Castr?
Besides the list of 30+ publish destinations, you can choose to add a stream within Castr as a destination for the pre-recorded stream. This feature helps you to:
Quickly switch to streaming pre-recorded videos using the same Multistream/All in One streams you have set up on Castr.
Use Castr Pre-recorded stream as the video source (instead of OBS) to stream pre-recorded videos.
Use Multistream's features (e.g Chat Overlay) and All in One stream's features (e.g embeddable player, paywall, chat and reply) for pre-recorded video streaming.
