Support CamUp.tv

Camup.tv is a not-for-profit site that was built, staffed, and is operated by broadcasters just like you that have worked together at other sites previously. We wanted a site that delivered quality streaming using only the best equipment, 24/7 Moderation, and the best technical support possible lacking elsewhere as we are casters ourselves.

Banning Guests

trolls and spammers

In our continuing effort to keep trolls out, we have hooked up the guest bans to the site ban feature.

If a caster bans a guest from their room for misbehaving, their IP will be banned site wide.This may sound a bit harsh, but recent reports of guests trolling casters and causing trouble have forced us to add stricter measures.

We hope this helps keep the site clean and ensure the best experience for everyone.

Dictionary

Custom Colors And Background

color wheel

We have added the option for users to change the color of the text and background overlay shading of their rooms. You can find these in your Settings page next to the Background uploader.

This applies to anyone who wanted to use a lighter/darker background picture for their rooms and noticed the text difficult to read.

Or just want to personalize their rooms to be unique.

Turn Off Subscriptions

subcription alert emails

Continuing our efforts to provide you a better experience here at Camup.tv,  we have added a new option to your Settings page that lets you turn off receiving subscription alert emails. This setting will now be off by default until you explicitly turn it on.

Don't want to be receiving the annoying subscription alert emails when shows start, but still want to be notified? 

'Friend' or 'Favorite' the show and you will see a tiny green popup next to your window when that show starts.

How to Whisper: Explained

How to Whisper Explained

The Whisper feature lets you send short private messages to someone in the same room as you.  Unlike the Popup PM and Offline Message systems, the recipient does not have to be your friend to be able to receive/reply to your messages.

FAQ: Cams locked up

Problem: People complain they can't get on the cams after someone else has been using it.  ( Not to be confused with Locked Cams where the cams are actually locked by the owner and shows a red lock )

Stream Key keeps changing?

server lock

You may have noticed your stream key has changed from the last time you were live. Here's why:

 

Your stream key contains code that is unique to your account and is generated using your password, so anytime your password changes, your stream key changes too.

New Feature : Whisper

 

We have added a new whisper feature in chat. This works a bit like the the PM system but allows for quick short messages between users in the same room as you.

You do not have to be friends with the user to send a whisper.
