Built by the company Telestream, the Wirecast encoding software enables live streaming to any RTMP destination. This software also supports recording streams locally.
vMix is a highly powerful encoder. Like Wirecast, vMix supports a wide range of inputs. These include video cameras (view supported capture cards) at up to 4K resolution. The vMix encoding software also supports webcams, audio and video files, DVDs, playlists, PowerPoint, and other sources.
Next up on our list of encoding software is VidBlasterX, an RTMP-compatible live video production software. VidBlasterX enables streaming to most streaming platforms (including DaCast). The input support and other available features are similar to Wirecast and vMix.
Last up, let’s take a look at OBS Studio. This encoding option is a free and open-source live streaming video software package.
