WpStream

Description

WpStream is designed for effortless Live Streaming, Video-On-Demand and Pay-Per-View. It is your live-streaming solution, specially designed for WordPress to provide an affordable and seamless experience.

Choose from an array of monthly streaming plans that have been predefined and selectively calculated to suit each business and entrepreneur.

You may stream live directly from the browser or use specialized RTMP broadcast software like OBS, Wirecast, Larix, etc. Moreover, you are not limited to desktop Apps, you can even use your smartphone. Complete instructions and video tutorials are available on our website and YouTube channel.

Video playback is compatible with all modern browsers and platforms, including mobile. Each event you create will have its own pre-made video page and you may also include the player in any webpage of your WordPress site via shortcodes. You can set up unlimited channels, unlimited videos, and have unlimited viewers.

One of our key priorities is your content’s security. No matter what kind of content you choose to broadcast to your viewers, we guarantee that your data is fully encrypted and that you have full ownership and control over it. Our reliable, powerful, and highly secure tool gives customers full authority in a world where video platforms have too much control over data. This allows you more time to innovate and inspire.

Monetize your content by setting up the WooCommerce plugin and turning your live or recorded videos into products and offer them for free, as a one time-purchase or as recurring subscriptions.

What’s New?

Due to popular demand, you can now enable regular users to broadcast via the Front-End!
Starting with WpStream 3.7.1, admins can allow regular users to broadcast through the Front-End (not in wp-admin area), meaning that users who are not administrators can now independently broadcast videos. There is a new Shortcode, a Visual Bakery block, and an Elementor widget. For more information, please check out its documentation.

I can recommend this plugin if you want to stream to your WordPress site/page, including offering private streams and using it for multi-destination streams. The setup is easy enough (and there are a few video tutorials), the WordPress plugin interface and the user dashboard on their website are comfortable. Be mindful of the data usage (bandwidth) but remember you can upgrade to a higher plan even during the existing stream (and they'll e-mail you when you have 10% left). Also – the plans do not add up so upgrade or add a lower plan for the GBs when you must. The chat support on the website – responsive and kind. Thank you, Beatrice! There's also an option to record and rent videos – but we have not yet tried it.

As a beginner in streaming content, this plugin is a good option, it can be set up in a few steps in any wordpress page without any problems, i integrated with OBS free software to stream on my web page and the quality of the stream is very good. Overall very good plugin at good pricing.

We were looking to avoid all major streaming platforms because our content is religious and we didn't want to deal with censorship. What a wonderful surprise to not only find a solution but also find a solution that works almost perfectly with WordPress. So far we are thoroughly pleased with the service and the features.

For us, a company's support is nearly as important as their product. Upon starting out with WPstream (free trial) I had no idea about bandwidth usage. Well it wasn't long before I ran through the free bandwidth just trying to get OBS to work for us. I should have used a different free platform to set up my OBS then tried the same settings on WPstream (a little tip for the reader). The point is...when I realized what I had done I sent an email from WPstream's very easy to find email contact. Within hours, not days, I had my reply from WPstream. WOW! They are very nice people. Beatrice authorized additional bandwidth without delay or further questions. Seems to me these are good people with a very good product and they are trying hard. We will definitely be buying a subscription when our trial time is up. THANK YOU WPSTREAM ! YOU'RE ALL DOING A GREAT JOB !
