3 reviewers had the following to say about StreamSpot's features:
Overall StreamSpot is a good service, but their support leaves a lot to be desired. In general, after initial setup, things just work. However, if an issue occurs, especially during a live stream, don't expect support to be of much help as there is no live support option (even for the most expensive tier of service). Additionally, if you choose to use your own equipment as opposed to purchasing StreamSpot's "StreamSpot One" encoder (which is nothing more than an overly priced Linux box with more AV inputs/outputs than you find on a standard computer) you are forced to pay an additional $15/month maintenance fee to support scheduling of live streams. With that being said, no other platforms provides the same type of set-it and forget-it scheduling function that StreamSpot provides.
StreamSpot allows you to use your own device for streaming (really any computer with an Intel Core i3 or better - an Intel Core i5 is recommended), but they also sell a turn-key solution for easier setup.
When using your own device, StreamSpot must install their own proprietary software to enable scheduling via the web interface. You must also pay an additional $15/month maintenance fee for this software.
