How to set up your Lovense toys

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

The video guides below will walk you through the process of installing the Lovense extension into your Chrome (or Firefox) browsers. 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 (Note: Currently, this option is only available on Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers).

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 video games 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 (OBS).

You can download OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) here for free.
