Live Streaming Challenges - the Next DLiveStar.

in #dlive4 years ago (edited)

We are glad to see that we have so many broadcasters joining DLive in the past month. For the past month, we have been fixing bugs reported from the community, but we are still in the middle of the bugs list. We are still in a very early stage, and still have a lot of features to implement for a better user experience. Meanwhile, we believe that users define what makes a good product, and thus, we are also trying to incentivize and cultivate more broadcasters on the DLive platform and collect more feedback from all of you.

Therefore, we have launched another account called @DLiveStarBooster for promoting good content.

Here is the introduction if you missed it.

Thanks for @ned’s delegation (over 1 MM SP) and now we are able to incentivize our users more and make the DLiveStar plan executable! Therefore, we are launching these live streaming challenges. Each tag will be a separated challenge, and we will be giving our rewards based on the following rules.
Let’s see as a whole community if we can push our limit and get DLive to more users/followers, so we can create more high-quality content for the community.

Quick Tutorial To DLIVE.IO

Many of you reported a “fail to connect to server” bug to us. We discovered that we had a mistake in our previous tutorial session, and thus, we would like to repost the corrected tutorial here:


We are using SteemConnect as our login tool because it makes STEEM login and key management much easier, and it’s officially run by . Here’s the link:


We recommend broadcasters to use OBS as our encoder.

Next, fill in the description information and upload a thumbnail image.
Fill in the post information.

You’ll be directed to your live stream page and see your configuration based on previous steps. At the OBS setting, fill in the setting information based on the information on this page.

Start broadcasting: the “Start“ button on the Dlive page.

2.There should be a button saying ‘starting’, so wait for the system to start your live stream. When it’s finished, press the “Start Streaming” button on the OBS.

3.You can view your live streaming on your profile or in the NEW tab.

After broadcast finished, you can archive the video; you can download it from the ‘recording’ section in your own profile.

Video Upload:

We are also supporting video upload on our websites. To upload, do the following:

1.Click Upload

2.Select a video less than 1 GB, fill out the post information, then press “Submit.”

3.Post the video on Steemit.

Hope all of you can enjoy our product more!

I too agree.

Mobile apps are always a big help. Especially when Android is included!

Sounds goooood! We are actually thinking about this too, but that's something we might not be able to implement shortly.

Hopefully when the time comes Android will get some love??

i'm new.. Help me, follow me

congrats for this rising program of @dlive and hoping more success!

DLive is a cool idea!
I like it

i'm new.. Help me, follow me :D

yes agree with you.

I gave you some lovin! How 'bout you give me some too?

On Android I found the Wowza GoCoder apps works well, just a bit of a pain entering the URL and other details :)

is there android app for steemit ?

yes search for esteem on playstore but its buggy at this point of time.

how to work in wowza coder

100% right words its better to go with newly and some decent app required here

the best social media website ever seen

Oh yes..that would be awesome @dlive. I do most of my posting from my android phone. So a mobile app for the videos would be so much more convenient.

Support dlive! Some people live porn... it is ok?

Good platform! It is nice to have live service in steemit!

Congratulations to 2 million Steem Power!

I have a few questions:

  1. I find it disturbing that a video is not saved on DLive right away. This creates more work and time for the user. it also forces to make a double post: one for the live-stream and one for the recording. AND it also competes directly with DTube as a video platform. Of course this is your choice and totally legit but feels to me like I have to make a choice. How about you work with DTube for automatic video storage via some api or whatever. You save yourself the trouble of storage and you merge your power with the fastest growing Steem platform out there. You even share the same name in a way. Talk with @heimindanger and find a solution for the beneficiary share. And then just do it and everybody wins.

  2. When will you support more encoder? OBS is nice but I run vMiX for various reasons.

  3. Will you start to use your voting power efficiantly and burn 20% every day just like Utopian and DTube? Because then your platform will explode in the next month. Right now the contest sounds like you are very picky with your upvotes and only use that once in a while. I believe it will be much more interesting for everybody when we know that you will burn your power every single day and people can make real money here. Look at the Alexa rank of DTube and Utopian and how they are shooting up.

  4. Are you Open Source? Can we support you via the Utopian system? In case you are not open source would you consider going public? You can get so much help and support in form of developers, designers, translators and tutorial creators there while all of them will be rewarded automatically from Utopian - AND maybe from you as well. ;)

  5. Are you taking beneficiary rewards from the posts made on DLive and if yes how much?

Hi flauwy,

thanks for those questions! they are very good questions

  1. we are working on this feature now, and trying to make the user experience better, like when user click on the live streaming post, they can actually see the videos even if the live streaming is ended. We are open to cooperation, but need to figure out a way.

  2. This is also on the to-do-list.

  3. Definitely, somethings we are testing out. We are still figuring out how to use the SP smarter, so you can see the challenges are only for this week, so we can adjust and test. We are trying to giving out as much as we can, but not abusing it.

  4. Currently not.

  5. We do not take cut.

I hope Korean will be included in the language support.
Korean people would go wild with Korean translations.

I think, if you develop a mobile app, that will help a lot to people to stream from mobile. I know, its possible from browser also, but normally people tend to have more affinity towards app.

lol, really nice, to much fun. mobile app is a plus!!!

The young generation simply hit the app store, and most are on android. So having an app will create the disruption to go to common people, and bring them to Steemit + dlive : double benefit.

very nice follow you blog thanks..

steemit will rock till 2020

50,0000? You meant 50,000 or 500,000? :P

I can help @Dlive develop an iOS app.

Yes a mobile app that allows screen capture!

yes definitely, the current generation first pick the play store and its easy to use for them. your project is nice and user friendly if you also make their app . keep sharing and your effort will pay you one day..


It is the way things are moving. People always have that trusty pocket computer with them...

exactly sir what am thinking .... if developer develop a mobile app then it will help a lot of people including me to stream from mobile. and i agree with you ... a mobile app would be easier and smooth * thumps up

Hi , please Upvote me Plz

Fair point. :)

That's great

God bless you

DLIVE is SO awesome

since how long you using

Great post. Easy to follow and a cool way to get people involved. I may actually post a video! I agree with the others, a mobile app would be sweet!

Dlive is the next Twitch🌐

Yes. It could be.

Hi , please Upvote me Plz

Good to know

Awsome ....go the app

We just tried and hosted our first live session in dlive, however, I do not see the recording, at all. There is an option to download, but it looks like it will work after 24 hrs.

I hosted the live session using the laptop webcam, so there was no way to see how it was showing up live even :) , I thought, I would see it after we finish.

So next time, we will have to record and go live, it seems. Or use another external camera, to record, so that we can see the live session in the laptop ?

Thank you @dlive for this post and thanks to the guys that created the #dtube hashtag. YouTube is being put on notice! It is now possible to post one's videos and get paid without having to stick a code or wait for a host platform to approve monetization. Steemit is disrupting processes and this is just the beginning. Thanks again @dlive for this post.

my basic question is how Dlive can be used for self promotion

Just tried out the platform twice. Sadly cant take part in the challenge as it will be 4 am here. Hope to see more incentives :P

nice post^^


Streaming challenges are very interesting.

Cant wait to try out DLIVE!!! Excited and thank you for the post!


did you notice they asking for active key instead of posting key ??

Now I got it 👌🏼

Live streaming challenges should be gentle.

Amazing and very interessing post thank you for sharing
resteemed and shared in the steemit

Interesting. Is it part od dtube?

Being live to the world is most difficult thing to do but its good.

great post my dear

hello, @dlive
Upvote & Re-steem


Keske ingilizce bilsemde anlasam :d

Awesome news. :)


You can play World of Warcraft in Dlive as you told before.

Yup, been waiting to stream on dlive for some time.

Hope my new PC arrives soon for some more high-end games!

You don't understand. This post is epic. Did you see what happened in the first five minutes? Incredible...

Holy shit! When you see the citation generated on this post!! I wonder what the higher curation in the world is

What a cool program....thanks for taking the time to spread the information to the steemit community.

In this conditions I think I can prepare a post for DLive to intorduce it to my 1600+ followers.

I use dlive some time ago, and its works great. thanks for writing this great post.

Been thinking about streaming for a little while now, seem you have made my mind up for me :D

Its great new...awesome.

hello I'm sure you can be better in the future

Great post! Have been using Dlive twice and it works great.
Would be nice to see some integration with Streamlabs or something similar, or an own system for broadcasting upvotes, followers and donations live on screen.

Well, I tried. I either failed hard at setting it up, or the website demands more instructions or... something? I might try again when I have more time to come poke you in the steem chat or slack group.

What's the deal with all the messy tags? Also, I can't edit it on steemit without messing up the tags. Which should I keep for dlive and which can I remove and replace with something more... common?

I enjoy competition. I enjoy challenges. If a challenge is in front of me and it appeals to me, I will go ahead and conquer it.

I'm finalizing a panel discussion on this Saturday at 11am EST. It'll have a few prominent Youtubers, and deves for dsound and dtube. Want to join us? Come find me in discord and let's talk about it.

yes, it is very interesting and I will share this post and I feel dlive worth to develop, so that people get to know Dlive. this great post I will share and I can slightly expand this post ... success always Dlive.

Different day, different innovations.

I would like to participate and I see that the time for the live stream is past my bedtime. Many of us I am sure would like a chance to live stream any time of day and get a good percentage upvote!

@jerrybanfield That's pretty funny Jerry. Like an upvote will make your career. Aren't you getting close to the top of the world? I can understand using the platform but the "upvote" aspect is little over the top. 73 reputation. On the verge of making the elite 20, if you haven't yet? At least you are on stand by or an alternate. Not that you haven't earned it quit the opposite. In fact my only witness vote went your way, due to having earned my respect. But, an Upvote really? HILARIOUS! :-)

I agree with this. Thank you for speaking my mind @jerrybanfield .God bless you. Soar higher

We've got alternative for yt and now also for twitch. Great keep it up !
Maybe call it Dstreem

Couple of questions for clarification: These are three separate contests, right?

Are the winners of the star contest determined by view count or reward amount? How are reward amounts on dlive even calculated? Does this model discourage poorer streamers from streaming and participating, like steemit's model sort of does already? If so, how do you plan to address the issue of large accounts dominating smaller accounts on your platform?

Also, what do you mean by "quality" for the second and third contests?

If you write a post, but have very few upvotes and followers and your steam power is low, should you bother to write an article at all? Can you still receive an upvote from this contest if the content itself is informative and helpful for explaining what dlive is or how it can be used?

Thanks for the opportunity and the platform, just wanted to know a bit more what the chances are on all of these contests.

think, if you develop a mobile app, that will help a lot to people to stream from mobile. I know, its possible from browser also, but normally people tend to have more affinity towards app. @dlive #resteem


Great news for all of us. @dlive Thanks a lot for all the hardwork in making this happen.

Friends may I have your attention please. My profile reputation score(rank ) fell down from 30 to 13. So please anyone tell me what is the reason

This is just a guess but it might have to do with you posting irrelevant questions on another user's post. Do you do that a lot?

No two ways about it.

Very cool! I play to be involved this Saturday, today, if i can. Will see you at the allotted time! Will be gaming, leave suggestions if there's a particular game you'd like to see! I'm thinking about doing some VR.

On a related note, i tried streaming to DLive yesterday and wasn't able to go over 3.5mb/s... this is barely enough for 720p gaming streaming, is there any way to get up to 10mb/s of bitrate for quality? Anything over 4mb/s was dropped when i tried.

ohhoo... LiveStream ! Works good with my account :))

I have two or three request:
Is it precise to state that you are Open Source? Would we have the capacity to help you by methods for the Utopian system? If you are not open source would you consider opening up to the world? You can get so much help and support in kind of specialists, planners, mediators and instructional exercise creators there while each one of them will be compensated thusly from Utopian - AND conceivably from you as well. ;)
I feel that its chafing that a video isn't spared cash on DLive quickly. This makes more work and time for the customer. it also powers to make a twofold post: one for the live-stream and one for the record. Also, it in like manner fights particularly with DTube as a video organize. Clearly this is your choice and completely certified yet feels to me like I have to settle on a choice. You should work with DTube for customized video amassing through a couple of programming interface or whatever. You save yourself the burden of limit and you mix your vitality with the fastest creating Steem organize out there. You even offer a comparative name in a manner of speaking.
Will you start to use your voting power efficiantly and expend 20% reliably just like Utopian and DTube? From that point forward your stage will explode in the next month. As of now the test sounds like you are amazingly basic with your upvotes and simply use that from time to time. I believe it will be considerably all the more captivating for everybody when we understand that you will devour your impact every single day and people can benefit here. Look at the Alexa rank of DTube and Utopian and how they are shooting up.
Right when will you reinforce more encoder? OBS is lovely yet I run vMiX for various reasons.
Is it genuine that you are taking beneficiary prizes from the posts made on DLive and if yes what sum?

please follow me and vote my post

Excellent, I love that it is possible to encourage and cultivate more stations on the DLive platform and thus obtain more comments from all Steem users.

nice to see there are many possibilityes to earn crypto :) unfortunately i have a bad pc so no streamerino from me yet :/ but good luck for all of the people making us content and il hope to join the fun soon too :)

Unless i'm misunderstanding something (and i may be as detailed below) - i was the only person streaming using the tag today (Saturday, 13 Jan. 2018), so by default I had the most views. I was on the top of the "hot" section for the DLiveStar tag on Steemit, and like i said the only one streaming during the allotted time.

I'm confused because on the DLive site it only shows 1 channel live on the trending tab, but none if any filters are used (including DLiveStar), despite the fact that i'm live as i type this (using said tag). Outside of the homepage of DLive where 5 channels are shown (not including mine), there's almost no way to find live channels.

On a related note, it seems the max bitrate this site can handle is ~3000kb/s which is quite sub-par for high-quality/definition gaming (especially in 60fps). I usually try to stay above 9000kb/s on youtube for 1080p/60fps. I know my internet connection can handle it, so i'm assuming it's the site causing the issue.

Not trying to offend, just some honest feedback from a hopeful new user.

PS on steam tags all have to be lower-case, and on DLive the "DLiveStar" tag seems to autocorrect to "DliveStar" once entered. Not sure why, but if it really is case sensitive that could be a part of the problem.

@dlive excellent your initiative to improve the system I congratulate you

in the event that you build up a versatile application, that will help a considerable measure to individuals to stream from portable. I know, its conceivable from program additionally, yet ordinarily individuals have a tendency to have greater proclivity towards application.

Your 1 vote make a new life I am facing financial problem

Me and @minigunner are soooo exited to start broadcasting on @DLive, since we used youtube till now! We already are actively using @DTube for our fun and informative videos. This will be a great addition! Hopefully we can start this Saturday cause we have a hot ones chicken wing challenge coming and I think it will be a great stream for us to start with. Following all the updates about tjis platform and Thank you for working hard for this community!

hai @dlive would you see my stream? 20 hours ago i have stream many hour on dlive. And i use hastag DliveStar. I need your support to be Dlive Games Streamer. best regard @khalilmuza

I wish so much that I could join you in this. But unfortunately I’m a starving African kid that cannot afford to upload a live stream because the data is like R 150 per 1 GB.😔
