Frequently Asked Questions

The primary difference is that Wirecast S can only stream to Office 365, Azure Media Services and Microsoft Stream, whereas Wirecast can stream to anywhere. When you switch to Wirecast, you will no longer see the start-up templates or auto-configuration wizard – but you will get a host of new and improved features including Twitter messages and social media comment curation and display, access to our integrated Stock Media Library (with an Active Standard Support subscription), Stinger transitions and more. Other than that, the User Interface is the same which makes the transition easy and seamless.

When you upgrade from Wirecast S to our fully featured Wirecast Studio or Wirecast Pro you’re buying a perpetual license of Wirecast. Once you buy a license of Wirecast, you’ll get all software updates free as long as you have an active support subscription. Each new license of Wirecast software comes with a ONE YEAR subscription to Standard Support.

Every year, you can renew your Standard Support subscription for $99 and you’ll continue to receive all software updates and bug fixes free, PLUS access to our professional customer support specialists.

If you choose not to renew your Standard Support subscription, you can continue to use your software license for as long as it works for you, but you are no longer eligible for any bug fixes, updates or upgrades.

When you upgrade your Wirecast S subscription to Wirecast Studio or Pro, you’ll automatically get a one-year subscription to Standard Support which gets you:

  • Email Support with our professional support technicians
  • Online Case Submission (8am–5 pm PST)
  • < 8 business hour response time target
  • Access to Forum Community support, On-demand Training, and Knowledge Base
  • Access to built-in Stock Media Library
  • Free Software Updates

Standard Support Renewal: yearly for $99*

*If you let your support lapse/expire, the support renewal will increase to $199.

The steps are the same for streaming, but instead of choosing Wirecast S as your external encoder in the encoder setup in Microsoft Stream, you choose Wirecast. When you switch to Wirecast, you will no longer see the start-up templates or auto-configuration wizard that you would see in Wirecast S, but the steps for setting up the encoder are the same for both products.
