There are 4 main ways people can stream to the BoxCast platform:
In this article, we will talk about how to add these encoders to the BoxCast Dashboard to begin streaming. Check the Sources tab to view which sources you currently have added in your BoxCast Dashboard.
BoxCaster + BoxCaster Pro
If you purchased a BoxCaster from BoxCast, it will automatically appear on your account. If you purchased your BoxCaster from a third party and already have a BoxCast account, please reach out to email@example.com and we will be able to add it to your account.
Broadcaster App from BoxCast
Once you have an account with BoxCast, you can go to the app store on your iPhone or iPad and download the Broadcaster App from BoxCast. Once you download it and log in, you will see the Broadcaster App inside your dashboard and under the sources tab. If you have a free trial with BoxCast, you can use this app as well. Learn how to use the Broadcaster App.
Any RTMP Compatible Encoder (Wirecast, OBS, Teradek Vidui etc.)
If you plan on streaming with an RTMP Encoder, you will want to click on the sources tab of the BoxCast Dashboard.
Next click on Add Source, in the top right corner.
Most of the RTMP encoders will fall under the "Streaming Software" section but feel free to search around and add your encoder. If you do not see it, click on the genetic RTMP option.
Once added, you will now be able to get your RTMP URL, Server URL, and Stream Key.
