8.3(33368) | January 19th 2018 | First Beta Build

Good afternoon,

Over the past month and a half we’ve been very busy here at Telestream working on Wirecast version 8.3. We’ve decided to try something new and do a public beta of this version. We would appreciate any feedback – positive or negative – that you may have. In this version we’ve added video feed output from Wirecast to Rendezvous participants and we’ve enabled RTMPS support for Facebook. Wirecast 8.3 is also jam-packed with bug fixes and improvements! Please remember that this is a beta version and is not a representation of the final quality of the product, it could potentially have bugs and should not be used in a production environment.
