You use the Stream (beta) feature in Evercast for Mac or Windows to stream video files from your computer into an Evercast room. Here's how to do it.
File streaming in the Evercast desktop app has limited capabilities. For full functionality and features, streaming with EBS may be a better option. Learn about the differences here.
On your computer, select and prepare the video file you want to stream.
In Evercast for Mac or Windows, in a live room, on the bottom toolbar, click the More button, and then Stream (beta). The Stream (beta) window opens.
Click the File (beta) tab.
Either drag and drop a video file onto the selection area or click Browse files to select a file on your computer. You can only select one file at a time.
In Advanced settings, you can change the settings to your preferences.
If you want other participants in the room to use the playback controls, in the Playback control privileges drop-down, select All Participants (default). If you only want you to use the playback controls, then select You only instead.
Click Start. The stream starts in the room.
You can use playback controls such as play, pause, and forward. With the step buttons, you can increment the frame forward or backward one frame at a time.
Hover your mouse over the progress bar to see a preview of the scene that the video will start from at that point, if you select it.
Click the audio button to control the volume for all participants (only you can see and use this feature).
When you’re ready to stop streaming, click More again, and then Stop stream.
