Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do you record and save my ZCast shows?
Yes we do. Once you hit the “Go Live” button, ZCast will begin recording your ZCast in the background. Once you End your ZCast, you’ll be asked to save and publish your ZCast. Once you have done this, your recorded show can be shared on any social media using the Share button, and people can listen to it either directly on our website and app, or using the embedded player in the social network you published it on.
Q. Who can listen to my casts?
With live casts, anyone with ZCast can find and listen to it. When recorded ZCasts are shared, you can set your cast to private or public and share the link of public ZCasts with friends.
Q. Can I block people?
Right now, that functionality is not available. However, if you are having problems with specific people during your cast, please tell us by email and we will take care of the issue.
Q. How can I invite people who are not on ZCast?
In order to have a guest on ZCast, they must have a ZCast account. Once they have created the account, you can invite them by looking them up using their name or ZCast alias. Remember that ZCast accounts are free.
Q. Can I share my recorded ZCast?
Of course. You can either share them directly as links, or embedded HTML code, or if you prefer to go the “professional” route, you can convert your ZCast channel into an actual podcast that is accessed via Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher and the likes. Follow these instructions to configure your account as a podcast in only a few minutes.
Q. How many people can listen to a live ZCast?
There is no limit on the number of people who can listen to a live ZCast. As for guest speakers, although we don’t have a hard limit, from experience, shows with more than about 5 speakers tend to be hard to follow by the listeners, unless you have a very strict MC running the show.
