OBS offers feedback and metrics related to the ongoing broadcast such as CPU Usage, Time since starting broadcast, FPS, Dropped Frames, and Bitrate
A green square means that everything is working perfectly, as opposed to a red square indicating there are some issues that maybe caused by high load of CPU, network etc.
In case of HIGH CPU Load close any other windows that you might have (ex: if you have 10 tabs opened in your browser and you don’t need them it’s better to have them closed)
In case of issues with FPS / Bitrate / Dropped Frames – revise the Streaming settings and go down a resolution. In case you’ve initially opted for 1280×720, go down a resolution and see how that works.
Can’t see or use your camera and microphone set up in CAM4 Streaming 2.0?
Please make sure that you are logged into Cam4 and can access Streaming 2.0 tab in the Broadcast window
I get a message that my camera or microphone is disabled / No camera or microphone appears on my CAM4 Streaming 2.0 broadcast page.
The camera and/or microphone are disabled in your browser. Please enable them by clicking the “Allow” button near the address/URL bar to allow cam access for the site – Select Continue allowing / Allow -> Done – and then refresh the page.
Please note: This may require a browser restart rather than just a page refresh as other tabs or browser windows may interfere with the change
Your camera and/or your microphone could be in use by another app. In many cases, your browser might not be able to access them directly if they are already in use. To fix this please close any other tabs/browsers or applications that are currently using your camera ( Tip: your camera in use indicator is lit before reaching the CAM4 website it generally indicates something else is using your cam.)
Problems streaming on more than one platform.
You may experience issues trying to broadcast on multiple platforms while using streaming 2.0. If this is an issue you will need to create a virtual cam while only using one physical cam. The most common option would be to use the combination of OBS + OBs browser plugin. This will give you an additional cam in the dropdown list of an OBS virtual cam
Install OBS Studio. It can be downloaded here, instructions for auto-configuration can be found here
Install OBS Virtual cam based on your platform. Windows, Mac, Linux. Please note for Windows this will require a system restart to complete the installation.
Open OBS Studio
Select Tools / VirtualCam in the main OBS Studio window
Press the Start button, then close the dialog
Open your browser and choose OBS-Camera as your webcam.
You don’t need to press Start Streaming in OBS, but you need to have the proper settings for sources in OBS ( Camera and Microphone)
Start Streaming on CAM4 using Streaming 2.0 or External Encoder tab.

We are now offering CommDoo, a pay by call solution for Landlines only in DE, AT, CH, and Landlines + Mobile phones in the UK. You will see a new option in the Buy tokens overlay, besides Credit card, Paysafe, and Paypal there will also be a new option, “Pay by phone”.
How will it work?
For smaller token packages (up to 30 euros) a 1-second drop charge call is sufficient. The charges will be billed via your phone bill. For this option, the call lasts one second only and after that one second, it ends automatically.
For larger token packages (up to 250 tokens) you must call 2 times. For this option, you will need to wait on the line until the bar from the pop-up payment loads 100%.
Now you can BOOST your room higher in the directory for just 25 tokens! The boost will last 5 minutes. If you have not added 10 unique viewers within that period the time will extend to a maximum of 30 minutes so you can gain those viewers and increase your rank once the boost period ends
How it Works:
You will now notice the new BOOST button on your screen after starting a LIVE broadcast.
Boosted broadcasters will be evenly distributed among the top 25% of all cams based on their ranking against each other. So the lower your ranking the more positions you will gain using Boost
Click on the “Boost Now” button to start the feature.
It costs 25 tokens to BOOST yourself for a full 5 mins.
When you click on “Proceed” the cost of the BOOST will be deducted from your CAM4 account and your cam will be re-positioned on the directory page.
What Happens when BOOST starts?
You will see a message in your chat letting you know who purchased the boost.
There is a bar on your broadcast window that will slowly fill up as the time runs out.
The BOOST button is now inactive, this means you cannot click on it. The text has also changed to read” Boost Active” and includes a count down.
What Happens When the BOOST ends?
The button will say “Boost” again become active enabling you to click on it again.
You will see a message in the chat window that will tell you that the BOOST has ended and display how many viewers you gained during that BOOST.
Your directory position will change, but not necessarily back to your original position – because your new position will reflect increases in your viewers due to the boost.
Viewers can BOOST you too!!
Viewers are always looking for ways to support their favorite broadcasters. Why not encourage them to use the Boost feature on you? With their help, boosting can really make a difference in your performance and exposure on CAM4.
