Live streaming becomes extremely easy and fun when you use OneStream Live. However, setting up live streaming is not easy, even for a tech-savvy person. Most non-technical people might just give up after 15-20 minutes of trying. When it comes to pre-recorded videos, there is hardly any cloud-based solution available in the market other than OneStream Live that offers such incredible features. With other ready-made live streaming solutions, you have to install third-party software like OBS or Wirecast to get things rolling. Set it up, configure some technical details like bitrates, frame rates, video formats, etc., and then hope it works. OneStream Live makes live streaming so simple that anyone can stream their pre-recorded videos live in less than 5 minutes. It takes away all the pain, circumvents the cumbersome tasks of setting up streams and lets you focus on your customers.
