SportsCastr works on both the web and iOS devices. The web platform is fully responsive and works on phones, tablets and desktop computers. In order to stream live video, users have to be on a desktop computer or download the iOS app.

Does SportsCastr work on Android devices?

SportsCastr for Android devices is currently under development and will be released in the near future. In the mean time, you can download the iOS app or use any web browser to watch and stream live video.

HOW CAN I STREAM LIVE VIDEO?

You can stream live video using SportsCastr using your iPhone and most web-browsers, as described below:

WHAT’S THE FASTEST WAY TO WATCH LIVE VIDEO ON SPORTSCASTR?

Download Flash to watch live-broadcasts in near real-time. If you do not have Flash installed on your computer, SportsCastr’s streams will display using what’s known as HLS technology. HLS does not require additional software such as Flash, but it increases the latency in the streams you are watching.

CAN I EMBED MY STREAMS?

We will be opening up the ability to embed your streams on other social platforms in the near future.

DOES SPORTSCASTR SUPPORT ADAPTIVE BITRATE STREAMING?

Yes, SportsCastr fully supports adaptive bitrates for both watching and broadcasting. This means that the quality of a user’s video stream is based on the internet or cellular data connection speed of the broadcaster. The higher the connectivity speed, the better quality of video.

This is true for viewers, as well. Users with a fast internet connection will be able to watch the best-quality of video available, and users with a slower connection will see a “stepped-down” quality.

We recommend connecting to WiFi for both streaming and watching on a mobile device.
