Introducing Wirecast 5
Enhanced encoding and playback
x264 encoding for stunning quality at low bit rates
You now have the choice to use x264 to live encode your stream. x264 offers high quality encoding with lower bitrates, making it one of the best low-latency video streaming formats
in the world.
With support for stream delay in Flash, now you can delay your streamed broadcasts to add a buffer between your live stream and broadcast. Gamers: perfect for delaying your stream to hide your strategy from online competitors.
Improved H.264 playback
Now you get even smoother playback of your pre-recorded H.264 videos in Wirecast.
