      Hyperbeam vs Kast opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      melmiamisfit Kast doesn't really do anything ground breaking that discord streaming won't give me. However Hyperbeam filled the problem of wanting to watch movies with my friends and being able to switch control so others could show off what they wanted. The people running Hyperbeam care about their customers as well!
