Before You Install SAM Cast

The first thing you need to do is make sure you’re set up with these minimum system requirements:

  • Operating system: Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7
  • CPU: 1 GHz
  • Memory: 1 GB
  • Disk space: 100 MB
  • Sound card: Required
  • Internet: You’ll need a solid Internet connection

Ideally, your system is set up with the following:

  • Operating system: Windows XP or Windows 7
  • CPU: 2 GHz
  • Memory: 2 GB
  • Disk space: 100 MB
  • Sound card: Any high quality sound device; we recommend internal sound devices instead of externally connected USB devices
  • Internet: ADSL, cable or direct fiber Internet connection with enough capacity to broadcast your streams to the stream hosting provider

Avoid running other tasks or processes simultaneously with SAM, including automated anti-virus scans. These could hinder SAM Cast’s real-time performance.

When you install SAM Cast, your firewall may request that you authorize SAM to open a port. If it does, make sure to allow it.
