View Full Version : Joicaster - Anyone using it?

I just discovered Joicaster and wanted to see if anyone else on here is using them. I do not have a lot of bandwidth to work with here (5mbps Upload) and this seems to be a good solution for others like me. From what I understand you send them the stream and they send it out to the CDNs.

Hey Podnutter. I actually just heard about them. I know that Stephen Heywood is using the service. Im sure he can give more details on how it works.

I would be willing to give it a show also.

I'm actually using it. You stream to Joicaster at whatever quality you want, and they redistribute through the cloud to the destinations that are in your package. If you want to check it out, I have a promo code for a free month TTBFREE and you can try out a package that best suits your needs. To see more check out the episode yesterday on Broadcast Now where I show a little bit about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnKwD2SYrjY&feature=youtu.be&a

hmm this is interesting. So this is for people who do not have enough bandwidth? I have about 10mbps upload and would love to be able to send HD to a few CDNs but my wirecast machine is too slow. This might work out perfect for me.

Steve Thank you for the promo code.

Paul this is also for people maybe facing HIGH CPU like I do sometimes going to multiple destinations. So for me this works and I feel others are in the same boat. Try it and see how it works and let us know. So far I like it.

Very similar to Restream.io (http://restream.io), which was mentioned earlier this year on the forum.

Seems that way. Rwildman. I wonder what the pros and cons are to both services.

Good question. One I can't answer, however, having only used Restream.
