Sharing Pre-Recorded Content
Updated over a week ago

Many hosts love sharing pre-recorded content during their events! However, bear in mind that Crowdcast is a live video platform, not a video hosting platform. This means you'll need to actually go live in a session to share pre-recorded video rather than simply uploading a file. Keep reading to learn how to share pre-recorded content as part of your live event.

Method One – The Studio

Crowdcast’s built-in Studio is the simplest way to share pre-recorded content. Hosts and co-hosts can upload pre-recorded videos to the Studio at any point before or during an event. The video must be hosted on Youtube, Vimeo, or Wistia.

Important Notes

Method Two: Virtual Webcam

Another way to share pre-recorded video content is to virtualize your webcam with third-party software. When you virtualize your webcam, you are selecting a third-party tool as your webcam source. Whatever content you have loaded into the virtual webcam will be passed into Crowdcast as if it were a feed from your standard webcam.

Here are some third-party tools that offer this:

  • ManyCam: Mac and Windows – Paid Subscription

  • OBS: Mac and Windows – Free

  • **XSplit VCam:** Mac and Windows – Paid Subscription

  • vMix: Windows – Paid Subscription

Method Three: RTMP Studio

RTMP Studio allows you to connect Crowdcast to other live-streaming apps like OBS, Wirecast, Streamyard, and more. If you need to quickly swap between various media inputs like video and camera with transitions and/or graphics, RTMP Studio may be the best option. Learn more about RTMP Studio’s capabilities here.
