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.

Cam4 Private Shows

Private Shows are a great way to make more money. Viewers pay per minute until they end the session or run out of tokens (Price options are in point 11. below). While in a Private Show, you can enable Spy mode. This allows Spy viewers to watch your show but not have access to the chat. And of course, you can chose to disable and enable Private & Spy Show functions at any time.

 

1.What is a Cam4 Private Show?

Cam4 Private Shows let your viewers get a much more exclusive experience from your broadcast, a personal show featuring a private chat that only you and the viewer can see, while you earn tokens every second.

2.What is a Spy Show?

During a Private Show, other viewers may tune in as Spies. Spies can watch the broadcast by paying a set amount of tokens per minute, but they cannot see or participate in the chat.

3.How do I enable Private Show requests?

Private Show requests can be enabled and disabled from the toolbar below the broadcast window.

4.What happens when the Private Show ends?

When you are ready, you may end the Private Show and return to the public broadcast by clicking End Current Show button.

5.What happens to the rest of my viewers when I accept a Private Show?

While you are in a Private Show, your viewers may remain in the public room and chat while they wait. If you have Spy Shows enabled, viewers may watch the Private Show broadcast (but not see the chat) for a set amount of tokens per minute.

6.Can I disable Spies in my Private Shows?

Yes. Spy Shows can be enabled and disabled from the Private Show Settings window. Remember, enabling Spy Shows is a good way to earn extra tokens and keep viewers watching your broadcast while in a Private Show.

7.What happens to the goals that were active before beginning a Private Show?

The goals on your public broadcast remain in place and will continue once you return to the room when your Private Show ends.

8.Can members tell if I’m in a Private Show?

Yes. During Private Shows your directory thumbnail will include a key-shaped icon, and a notice will be displayed on the broadcast window in your room. Viewers who enter the room while you are in a Private Show may wait for it to finish or watch the Private Show as spies.

9.How do viewers request a Private Show?

If you have Private Shows enabled, viewers may request Private Shows by clicking a Request Private Show button below your broadcast feed.

10.How do I accept Private Show requests?

Notifications for Private Show requests appear on the toolbar below the broadcast window. Pending requests are also found here while you are in a Private Show.

11.How do I earn tokens from Private Shows?

Private Shows have variable pricing, you can choose from any of the following for your shows

12 Tokens/Minute, 6 Tokens/Minute Spy
18 Tokens/Minute, 6 Tokens/Minute Spy
24 Tokens/Minute, 6 Tokens/Minute Spy * (default)
24 Tokens/Minute, 12 Tokens/Minute Spy

30 Tokens/Minute, 12 Tokens/Minute Spy

12. How long are Private Shows?

Private Shows continue until the Viewer runs out of tokens, or either you or the viewer choose to stop the Private Show by clicking the [End Private Show] button.

13. What is the difference between Private Rooms and the new Private Shows?

Performers with Gold Memberships may create Private Rooms, which only viewers with the password may enter. All Performers may enable Private Shows on their Public Broadcasts, which creates a separate Private Broadcast for the viewer, which costs tokens per minute.

14. Can I still advertise Private Skype shows for tokens?

Yes. You may still advertise private shows for your viewers. As always, you may only accept tokens in exchange for items and services you advertise on Cam4.

How do I use Manycam with Cam4?

If you wish to use ManyCam with Cam4 please do the following:-

  • Right click where the video should be and take settings from the menu that appears,
  • Click the small cam icon and make sure the dropdown list for the cam source is set to ManyCam Virtual Webcam” or “ManyCam Video Source“.
  • Click the small microphone icon and make sure that ManyCam Virtual Microphone” is selected as the source

Why does my video stop and start?

This can happen for a number of reasons including:

  • A lot of people moving around on cam
  • flashing lights
  • picking up your cam and moving the view to show something in the room to your viewers

Why does it happen?

To make the video flow smoothly, only those pixels that change are transmitted with each frame. There is no reason to keep transmitting static pixels (those displaying the wall behind you for example), this keeps the amount of data being resent with each frame to a minimum and the video is smooth. If you have multiple people moving around a lot or flashing lights then there are more changes, meaning more pixels that need to be transmitted with each frame.

If you have an 8 Megapixel camera (8 million pixels) that runs at 30 frames per second, that works out to 240 million pixels per second that need to be transmitted in order to keep up with the movement. The result of this is jerky video.

Two things to remember!

  1. When you are looking at your own video, this is displayed locally on your computer. So it will run more smoothly than for those watching your broadcast elsewhere
  2. If you move your cam to give your viewers a “quick look” at something, they are unlikely to see what you are trying to show as your cam will start dropping frames as it struggles to keep up with the changes.

Choosing the Best HD Webcam

Broadcasting your show in stunning high-definition with Cam4 HD requires an HD webcam.

There are several options available on the market that support 720p streaming – here are the cams that our Model Coach Nikki Night personally recommends:

External Webcams:

Logitech C920

Logitech HD c920 $140 on Amazon

Fully HD 1080p video recording with smooth HD 720p video calling.

The glass lens and Logitech Fluid CrystalTM Technology give you focus, clarity, and brilliant quality videos.

Widescreen captures more of your room allowing you to change locations and move freely without adjusting the cam. Great for Cam4 HD!

logitech-c930

Logitech C930e Webcam $180 on Amazon

An extra wide 90 degree field and 1080 pixel resolution frees you to cam from the bed to the stripper pole to the couch to the floor. The flexible base acts as a mini tripod, saving you another cost while offering smooth tilting, pans, and zooming.

This is a revolutionary cam with no drivers, downloads, or disks. Simply turn it on and go. More technical features include 4 x digital zoom, full-HD ability, and USB connection.

Integrated Webcams:

Recent models of Apple and Lenovo laptops come with an HD integrated webcam, which is fully compatible with Cam4 HD
