Lovense toys bring you and your audience even closer by allowing your viewers to control your toy through tipping.

You’ll also need to download a Lovense app to either your IPad, IPhone, Tablet, or SmartPhone , or select your device here to download for your MAC or PC to complete the setup.

What Is External Encoding?

Video encoders are the software that allows your digital video to be broadcast live! 

CAM4 uses its own encoder, so you just need to click Broadcast to go live on the site. Some sites, like Twitch or YouTube Livestreaming, require you to download external encoders before you can broadcast.

External Encoders can be technical to configure, but they give you many more options for setting up and running your broadcast. With an external encoder, you can fine tune your video quality, add images or videos to your broadcast, stream videogames live, and so much more. Savvy users may even be able to add scrolling lists of top tippers or favorite gifts!

CAM4 has added support for an external encoder to the broadcast window – Open Broadcaster Software.

You can download OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) here for free. There are many great guides online to help you install and configure the software.

 

 

Right now, support for OBS is limited to a closed beta test. If you would like to join the test, you can email technical@cam4.com and use the subject line Streaming2015.
