What is VIDYPS and how does it work?
VIDYPS turns your Mac or PC into a broadcast quality video server enabling you to stream a playlist, capture video from your screen or use a camera and microphone to stream video. Each option allows direct to disk recording and using a branded logo to overlay the video stream. You can stream video content independently, without the involvement of intermediaries or the need to use 3rd-party apps and services.
Do I need to preset firewall or router settings before I start broadcasting?
Firewall Settings: All presets related to the firewall are made automatically by our software.
Router Settings: If your computer, which broadcasts live, is connected directly to the Internet, no presets related to a router are required.
On the other hand, if your computer is connected to the Internet via a router (a WiFi connection is an example), you will need to forward ports in order to stream your program live. Please check the following steps:
