You use the Stream files feature in Evercast for Mac or Windows to stream video files from your computer into an Evercast room. Here's how to do it.
On your computer, select and prepare the video file you want to stream.
In a live room, on the bottom toolbar, click the Stream button, and then Stream files. The Stream files window opens.
Either drag and drop a video file onto the selection area or click Browse video 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 and the Stream button turns red.
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 Stream again, and then Stop file stream.
