Using C4 Broadcaster As An External Encoder

As of version 6.5.0 (released February 2022), we have added the ability to use C4 Broadcaster as an External Encoder. This means you can benefit from using the powerful camera of your mobile device while interacting with your viewers via the broadcast window on your PC. This works in the same way as if you were using OBS, but without the setup that would be required there to get it to work.

In order to do this, please follow these 3 simple steps:

  • Start C4Broadcaster and press on the external encoder button next to the regular Start Broadcast button.

  • Navigate to and click on Broadcast. In the Broadcast Window, switch to the External Encoder tab. The camera preview from your mobile phone should appear in the player.

  • Press the Start Broadcast button in the Broadcast Window and have fun.

    You can now use your mobile device to move around while managing your room through the broadcast window.

    • Place the mobile phone anywhere you desire, forget about cables, external cameras or carrying your laptop from room to room

    • Make good use of the quality of your phone cameras. If your network connection and device supports it, you can stream in FullHD resolution from your device

    • Avoid the potential painful OBS or any 3rd party software configuration

    • If your wi-fi connection is sketchy, you can always switch to mobile data (4G/5G) in order to provide a better experience for your viewers

    When finishing your show, remember to close both the Broadcast Window and also stop the stream from C4Broadcaster

    While streaming in External Encoder mode, viewer interactions and some features are disabled on C4Broadcaster. They are available in the Broadcast Window



Streaming 2.0 Troubleshooting

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.

or from browser settings

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

    1. Install OBS Studio. It can be downloaded here, instructions for auto-configuration can be found here
    2. 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.
    3. 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.

Solo Private Shows

If you are entering into a private show on another platform while you are live on CAM4, we have added a Solo Private Show feature. This allows you to start a private show with no viewer which

  • Gives you privacy for the show
  • Keeps your directory position and viewers on CAM4
  • Offers an increase in your revenue by having spy viewers

The options for this appear in the lower left of your broadcast window after clicking on the Settings cogwheel as shown below

Solo Private Settings

To end the Solo Private, click the End button located at the lower right corner of your broadcast window




Struggling to build an audience?

Just logged on and want to kickstart your show?

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?

  1. You will see a message in your chat letting you know who purchased the boost.
  2. There is a bar on your broadcast window that will slowly fill up as the time runs out. 
  3. 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?


  1. The button will say “Boost” again become active enabling you to click on it again.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
