Your Dacast account is being upgraded!

Your Dacast (formerly vzaar) account is being upgraded to include more functionality, scalability, and a lot of new features including monetization and live streaming functionality. 

We are doing our best to make sure this is a smooth transition for you with no disruption to your workflow or your viewers. 

When will this change happen?

Your migration date is November 1, 2020, at noon UTC. Your account will automatically be redirected to your upgraded account where all your content will be available. 

Do I need to change my embed codes?

No. All your embed codes will work as before and there will be no need to update anything manually on your side. 

Will there be a cost difference?

Your current plan will be grandfathered to your new account. If you feel that one of our new plans is more suitable than your current plan, you may switch at any time. All of our pricing can be found here: https://dacast.com/live-streaming-pricing-plans/

Why do I need to switch?

In March 2019 vzaar and Dacast merged, intending to provide both of our customer bases with a comprehensive online video solution. Since then, we have worked tirelessly to create a platform that will add features for all customers, reduce overage costs, and grow with your business. During the coming months, we will be upgrading all users to our new, fully-featured Dacast platform.

What kind of benefits will I see after the upgrade?

  • Award-winning live streaming:
    Dacast was built for live streaming- now this functionality will be available to all customers from vzaar, in the same account, and at no extra cost. A lot of our customers have been especially keen to use this feature to stream to their customers and staff during the COVID pandemic. Click here to discover how easy this is to get started. 
  • Monetize your content:
    Start making money off your content. We have partnered with InPlayer to provide you with the tools to sell access to your videos in the way that best suits your needs. Events, subscriptions, or purchase- the choice is yours. 
  • Crisp new design:
    We have worked with top designers to ensure the platform is clean and easy to use. This platform is built to grow with you. 
  • Reduce overage costs and get more bandwidth:
    When we upgrade your account, we will also change the way we process your bandwidth. Instead of having a monthly limit, you will get bandwidth allowance every month. As long as you stay on the same plan, your unused bandwidth will roll over every month and stay valid for up to 1 year.  This is particularly useful for users with seasonal usage. 

I have more questions. . . 

Please get in touch via email at support@dacast.com or grab us on live chat, we would be happy to answer all your questions. 

This upgrade has been designed with our customers in mind and we hope you are going to love it. Whether you want to take advantage of all the new features like monetization and live streaming, or just continue to host your videos safely and securely like before- you can do it all with Dacast!
