What can you use the app for?

Spreecast is the social video platform that makes it so that people can broadcast together. Through Spreecast, users can hold public, face-to-face conversations live online and interact with thousands of other people via video. Up to four people can host a video and interact with one another while thousands can watch. There are powerful production controls available through the Spreecast application where users can control who and what appear on the screen. Also, users can embed their videos into their blog or other social networking sites. On the Spreecast homepage, users can view live and upcoming broadcasts, go through guides of popular videos or browse through the member community. Broadcasts that are popular and trending are also posted on the homepage and users can quickly see the title, a screenshot and how many views the video has received thus far.
