Technology

performancecast.tv's broadcasting and viewing technology is based on Adobe Flash, a browser plug-in found in 95% of all personal computers,[2] and available for all modern operating systems.

Users can broadcast directly from the site, with performancecast.tv using Flash to auto-detect and stream from an attached webcam. performancecast.tv also supports broadcasting using in HD using Flash Media Encoder to allow broadcasters to stream higher quality video.[3]

Following the performancecast.tv site redesign in April 2009, the default broadcast channel video size changed from a standard aspect ratio of 450 x 350 pixels to a widescreen 600 x 450 pixels.

Content accessibility

Like YouTube and other static video sites, performancecast.tv allows each channel to be accompanied with an HTML snippet, which allows users to embed video onto pages outside the performancecast.tv site.[4] Another snippet is given to embed the associated chatbox as well, thus allowing users to recreate the basic performancecast.tv functionality on another page.
