Frequently Asked Questions
Why does my streaming disconnect sometimes after a couple of minutes of streaming with a message called "Disconnected due to poor network" ?
C4Broadcaster has a built-in mechanism in which it adapts the quality of the stream depending on your network condition (both wi-fi and mobile data). In general, disconnecting occurs after a certain time period due to the stream becoming unviewable because of the bad network conditions, so we automatically disconnect you.
In order to let you know when you’re in a zone where the signal strength of the network is low, we have added a signal icon with three tiers of colors. When pressing the icon, a popup is shown with extra details regarding your estimated network speed and network connection quality.
Why is there a size limit for uploading videos on the MyShop from inside C4Broadcaster?
C4Broadcaster's main role is to enable broadcasters to stream and record their shows from anywhere. Videos uploaded from the application must have a maximum size of 100MB. Videos larger than that should be uploaded from the your device's browser or from a PC.
Why can't I see the chat, see viewers or notifications?
If the chat connection fails, you won't be able to see chat messages, the viewers count or tips received. Keep an eye on the chat connection indicator on the main chat room.
Note that even in case the chat connection is down, the streaming is a separate component which can work in parallel.

The network conditions are key to a good streaming experience. Wi-Fi is usually recommended since it's more stable than an indoor mobile data connection. Also, keep an eye on the signal state of the network, going too far from the router or going in certain places where the signal is low, might disrupt the streaming experience both for you and your viewers.
Lightning is another key component to a good streaming experience. Usage of the device's flashlight is recommended in dark rooms or environments, as well as turning on the Increase camera brightness.
Keeping the device steady will also contribute to a good experience. Using phone stands or selfie sticks might prove useful.
If you own an eligible Samsung device, you can use Your Phone app to mirror your screen onto your PC.
