Some basic info about the new SoulCast software

Our team has been working hard to implement a new streaming technology on SoulCams.

The aim of this comprehensive development is to get rid off Flash technology and let models broadcast their streams in much better quality and also in 16:9 resolutions (widescreen). In the same time, we upgraded the emotions and implemented some new useful features as well, while we also removed some old some features that were not popular.

How to go online with SoulCast

1. After logging into your performer account, you can choose from two options to go online. Choose SoulCast Software.
2. A new pop-up window will appear, this is the SoulCast streaming app.
3. System will start to analize and detect your audio and video devices. Meantime, your browser might request you to allow access to SoulCams to use your cam and microphone. Choose 'Allow'.

Note: if it is the first time you are opening SoulCast, it might take a while till system dedects all your audio and video devices. Please be patient. This procedure is usually fast after the first usage of SoulCast.
Important: if the audio and video detecting procedure does not finish from itself, it means that you probably have an ad blocker software preventing it. Please disable your ad blocker software when you use SoulCast or set SoulCams as an exception in the ad blocker settings.

4. Once the system could detect all your audio and video devices, the Streaming settings panel will come up where you can choose the desired audio and video source and the streaming presets (read more about streaming presets here)

Streaming settings

You can select from 4:3 and 16:9 (widescreen) resolutions and from the following presets:

  • 4:3 - High (1024x768, 1500 kbit):
  • 4:3 - Medium (800x600, 800 kbit):
  • 4:3 - Low (640x480, 500 kbit)

  • 16:9 - High (1280x720, 1500 kbit)

Note: if you use a camera splitter software (e.g SplitCam, ManyCam, etc), use the same resolution in the splitter settings for the best streaming quality.

Renamed features

New and/or extended features

  • Emotions: wider range of emotions. You can choose from predefined emotion themes or start typing a desired emotion.

Clicking on a visitor with right mouse button the following actions can be taken:

    • Mute: you can mute the selected visitor. This feature is almost the same as 'kick' in the old SoulCams model software. The text he types to you will not appear in your chatroom and the other users won't see it either.
    • Ban: use it for harassing visitors. The selected user will be banned from your room for 3 hours.
    • PM: same as 'invite' = 'free private conversation'. By clicking on a user in the User list, you can use the 'PM' feature. PM stands for 'Private Message'. If you 'PM' a user, you still will be in free chat but your conversation will be separated from the main free chat, so nobody else will see what you type to each other. You can select between the tabs, so while you talk with a viewer in PM, you still can type to the main free chat as well by clicking on the 'CHAT' tab and you can talk with more 'PM' -ed users separately. Note: only active and VIP members can be 'PM'-ed and there is no time limitation how long a user can stay in PM mode, however you can un-PM the user any time by clicking on the 'x' at the top right corner of the tab.
