Pros

If you want something that's easy to set up and works great, look no further. It makes streaming easy and fun.
I was happy to get their lifetime deal and likely one of the better LTD purchases I have done. But seeing their quality, I can also recommend using it while you'd be on monthly subscriptions.
The customer service experience has been wonderful and the pricing is really worth the investment. I am very satisfied with this product.

Pros

An acquaintance of mine recommended this service to me. I tried it for a month and am very happy. With a light heart I will recommend to my friends.
I really appreciate Castr’s reliability, its feature set (infinite loops are really useful!) and it’s low cost. Having highly responsive, helpful support is also a huge plus.
The Software and Streaming Service is ROCK SOLID and when you combine that with the truly best customer service and pricing, it is the Best Decision we could make.

Cons

I have trouble with volume from time to time, and it does have trouble with connection from time to time.
The one thing that we miss coming from OBS is being unable to further customize the layout.
This is ABSOLUTELY the worse customer service I've experienced in all of my purchases of software and my entire office is literally automated.

Cons

We are an interview and review type channel on YouTube and Facebook, we had a few well known artists that we had some buffering issues before we used Castr, and it was frustrating and embarrassing.
That's so crazy that no matter what package you have, you get ONE. And they mislead you to believe higher packages have more.
A current bug requires activating each platform individually, from the bottom up, if using more than a couple platforms. The master control switch runs into an erroneous licensing error.

Works great, really affordable.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Easy to use. Once the rmtp is set up once I hit stream on obs it goes live straight away on castr. I love being able to simulcast to multiple platforms.

Cons

You have to have Facebook open in creator studio for the stream to go live there.

Vendor response

Hey Mark, Thank you for your feedback, I have read your comment and will do the needful developments asap.

Love Castr, use it all the time. Recommend it to all my colleagues.

Pros

Ease of use is the best aspect of Castr. Support is phenomenal too. I recommend this product to everyone I talk to.

Cons

Don't really have any cons but would like if they would also allow some kind of video sharing platform.

Quick deployment for multistream

Reviewed 3 years ago

We use Castr to multisream temple live streams to Yt and FB channels. used it for more than a year with no issues. seemless integration with OBS.

Pros

We use OBS studio to live stream our temple events daily since march of 2020, and relaying the stream to Facebook and Youtube simultaneously is very simple with Castr.

Cons

None that I can think of in the software. I would love for an auto-renewal or at least a renewal reminder instead of just stopping service at end of the 1 year plan. that was the only issue I had.

Vendor response

Hey Hemanth, Thanks for taking your valuable time in sharing your feedback with us. Your simple words mean a lot to us. I have personally noted down your concern and will ensure proper steps are taken. Happy Streaming :)

Castr.io punches above its weight

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, my company has saved hours of labor per show by utilizing Castr.io, as we can remove the need for multiple on-site encoders and use Castr.io to move video from remote sites to our studio reliably.

Pros

Castr.io provides many features and capabilites at a cost far more competitive than it's competition.

Cons

Pricing models at the time of our use encouraged us to create multiple accounts instead of upgrading our plan to a larger tier.

Vendor response

Dear Trevor, Thank you for taking your valuable time to share your fantastic feedback. Your simple words mean a lot to us. Happy Streaming :)

Castr makes it uncomplicated

Reviewed 3 years ago

Great! We have an 8-camera setup using a Blackmagic ATEM system and all I have to do is connect it's built-in encoder to Castr, where I can see the integrity of my stream, add the appropriate platforms I want to stream to, and I'm up and running. Couldn't be easier!

Pros

At our recording studio, clients frequently want to stream their sessions to multiple platforms simultaneously. Castr makes it super-easy with most, if not all current platforms ready at the click of a link. The "dashboard" is a well organized central hub from which to branch out. Very easy to use.

Cons

Haven't found anything yet to complain about.

Vendor response

Dear David, Thank you so much for taking your valuable time to review us with such wonderful positive feedback. It means a lot to us. Thanks again.
