What type of subscription plans does Castr offer?
We offer two types of subscription plans: Multistream and All in One. Each plan comes with multiple tiers, depending on your usage (individuals or companies)
What are the differences between Multistream and All in One subscriptions?
The Multistream subscriptions include features dedicated to multistreaming purposes: concurrent streams, RTMP connection, chat overlay, 30+ publish destinations, extra destinations, pre-recorded live videos, and unlimited cloud recording. Meanwhile, the All in One packages include everything in the Multistream plans, plus embeddable HTML5 player, video security, analytics, and on-demand video hosting (VOD)
Do I need anything else to stream with Castr?
You’ll need an encoder — software or hardware — to work with Castr. While we suggest OBS as the basic, Castr works with any encoder that allows custom RTMP setup. You can also pull directly from IP cameras or from different supported sources
Can I stream to a custom RTMP destination?
Yes, you can stream to a custom RTMP destination by configuring a custom platform in the Castr dashboard.
Can I stream to multiple platforms on Castr?
Yes. You can choose to stream to 30+ supported platforms
Does Castr support chat integration?
Yes. You can synchronize chat messages from one or multiple social media platforms, or chat with your audience on the embeddable HTML5 player.
Which Content Delivery Network (CDN) does Castr use?
All live video streams are delivered via Akamai and Fastly content delivery networks (CDN). This will help us make sure there won’t be any buffering or lagging to your video streaming quality.
Does Castr support Adaptive Bitrate Streaming (ABR)?
Yes. We transcode the streams in the cloud and you have the option to enable or disable the adaptive bitrate streaming options for your livestreams.
