So, let’s dive in and shed light on these important topics to equip you with the information you need for a seamless live-streaming experience!
1. Do I need to subscribe to YoloCast after buying a YoloBox?
YoloBox and YoloCast are two distinct products in our live streaming lineup, each offering unique capabilities that cater to specific needs. To draw a comparison, their relationship is akin to that of the iPhone and iCloud, where they complement each other while serving different purposes.
If YoloBox provides all the functionalities you require for your live streaming endeavors, you can undoubtedly continue using it as your primary solution. However, with YoloCast, you gain access to additional benefits that can significantly enhance your streaming experience. Features such as ASP (Ardent Streaming Protocol) and Network Bonding ensure a more stable network connection and smoother video quality, diminishing the chances of interruptions or buffering. Moreover, YoloCast boasts a myriad of advanced features that cater to professional streaming needs, providing an array of options for those seeking to take their live streaming to the next level.
Should you find any of these advanced features valuable and worthy of investment, subscribing to a YoloCast plan unlocks a world of possibilities. By integrating YoloCast into your streaming setup, you can harness the full potential of its capabilities and achieve unparalleled streaming performance.
In summary, while YoloBox serves as a comprehensive live streaming solution on its own, YoloCast offers additional features and enhancements that can elevate your streaming quality and reliability. The decision to invest in YoloCast ultimately depends on your specific requirements and the extent to which you desire to optimize your live streaming setup.

2. Do I need to subscribe to YoloCast to use the multistreaming feature?
When it comes to multistreaming, both YoloBox and YoloCast support this feature. However, there are important distinctions between the two in terms of the number of simultaneous destinations they support.
YoloBox allows you to stream to up to three destinations concurrently. YoloCast takes multistreaming to a whole new level by enabling you to stream to up to 30 destinations simultaneously. This extensive reach empowers you to connect with your audience across various platforms, enhancing visibility and maximizing engagement opportunities.
If YoloBox satisfies all your multistreaming requirements and meets the demands of your streaming objectives, there is no need to make any changes. If not, subscribe to YoloCast.
3. What is the difference between YoloCast Events and Standard Events?
YoloBox and YoloCast offer seamless integration, simplifying the process of creating and managing live stream events. While Standard Events are designed for YoloBox, YoloCast Events are specifically tailored for YoloCast, and the two platforms synchronize effortlessly to enhance your streaming experience.
The benefits of creating YoloCast Events on YoloBox:
- Easy Setup: When you want to stream directly from your YoloBox, creating a YoloCast event on YoloBox eliminates the need for complicated RTMP setups. With a few simple steps, you can create a YoloCast event on YoloBox, and the live event will automatically appear on YoloCast as well. This streamlined process saves time and effort, allowing you to focus on adding video inputs and fine-tuning your stream.
- Remote Control: Once you have created a YoloCast event on YoloBox and added video inputs, you are not bound to stay with YoloBox for live streaming control. This is especially beneficial for outdoor streaming or scenarios where you need to move away from your streaming setup. You can conveniently return to your studio or desired location to remotely manage your YoloCast event from your laptop. From adding destinations and graphics to pushing the “Go Live” button and recording, you have full control over your stream from anywhere. This flexibility empowers you to create captivating live streams while enjoying the freedom to move and focus on engaging with your audience.

5. Captioning and translation options

However, after the live stream concludes, you have the ability to generate captions and publish them. Once published, viewers will be able to view the captions.
2. How can viewers download my live stream with captions?
Viewers cannot download live streams with captions, but they can watch the recorded streams with captions on the YoloCast platform.

Yes, you can download the text for the captions, and translate them into another language. Once the translation is complete, you can upload the translated captions. Once published, your viewers will be able to enjoy the video with the translated captions.
