Introducing Stream Deck XL

Vmix uses multiple overlays and frames to produce a variety of frames to be used on your stream. To manage the switching of these why not use Elgato Stream Deck.

Vmix stream configuration

From July 2021 we now recommend setting up a single stream as dacast`s new system provides multiple outputs depending on users internet connection speed. We now recommend setting up a single HD 720p 1.5Mbps stream based on the settings below. ensure you have keyframe aligned ticked, Profile should be changed to High (not Baseline), Strict CBR should also be checked. The video bit rate can also be lowered/set to 1.5Mbps, we can correspond that to the upload speed if ever because Due to COVID19, internet companies throttle download and upload speeds at various times, and therefore a lower bit rate on the lower side of the range is recommended. Check the dacast website for optimum details : We previously used multiple upload streams to allow users to cope with higher or lower quality connections, however, that is now handled by the CDN and one upload stream is fine.
