In case you missed it, Castr now supports SRT as a streaming input. Apart from streaming SRT from OBS Studio, vMix users can also set up the SRT protocol and send the stream to Castr. 

SRT allows for high-quality video delivery on any network, even with an inconsistent connection. This new addition helps Castr’s users incorporate this protocol into their streaming flow, besides other ingests like RTMP, RTSP, HLS, and MPEG-TS.

How to Setup SRT Streams from vMix to Castr

1. Make sure you have vMix downloaded. Get the latest version here.

2. Open your multistreaming project on Castr. Here you can find the URL automatically generated by Castr for your stream. Click Copy to get the URL.  Setting up SRT in Vmix
