GoToWebinar vs Crowdcast in a nutshell

GoToWebinar is one of the most famous webinar solutions on the market. They have been there for a very long time. GoToWebinar is created and marketed by LogMeIn, which merged with Citrix in 2016.

While the GoToWebinar software requires a download and install for host and attendees, the company provides a no-download, browser-based alternative called GoToWebcast.

Crowdcast's target audience is mainly small companies, entrepreneurs and coaches searching for a way to broadcast their messages online. So Crowdcast's product and communications are focused on community-building through webinars.

Downloads add friction to the registration process

Having something to download adds friction for registrants and will reduce your webinar's attendance overall. Downloading a third party software every time to attend a webinar is usually not recommended in a B2B configuration (network, firewalls, etc.).

With Livestorm's entirely web-based experience, no download is required. You will bring more people to your webinars and miss less opportunities only for technical reasons.

Livestorm is a 100% real-time, browser-based webinar software.

Providing a frictionless experience to participants directly increases the average attendance in every webinar session. Hence the need for a no-download webinar solution.

Not supporting the new standards in live video streaming (HTML5) can result in delays between the presenter and what the participants actually view (and can create confusion), poor user experience or worst: connectivity issues.

Livestorm works in WebRTC. Real-time, with no install required from the participants nor the hosts.
