Elevating DLive to The Next Level For You

in #dlive5 years ago (edited)


Hey DLivers,

I'm glad to be sharing the updates for DLive version 0.8.2 with all of you.

I personally want to thank everyone who has taken the time to provide feedback on our product. It's refreshing to see a Community that is so involved and invested. There are features in this update that mean a lot to me. DLive is more than just a content publishing platform. Our goal is to give all the users of DLive the tools to create a rewarding and engaging community. We still have a long way to go before a finished product, but I do feel like we are moving in the right direction.

I'm often reading the feedback provided from the Community and looking for ways to implement these ideas into the product, or atleast start to plan for them. I really appreciate the support that all the users of DLive have provided and I am looking forward to building this product and strenghtening our Community with each and every one of you.

I hope that the Community will continue to offer feedback through Discord and more importantly Trello. The whole DLive Team is actively monitoring Discord and Trello. Your feedback is so critical to the success of our platform. We will also be releasing a DLive Roadmap shortly to give everyone something to look forward to as the product continues to develop.

Fanbase Updates

Fanbase is a feature that excites me, and we have added massive updates to Fanbase in this version. I know that it is in early stages but when this feature is finished, or close to being finished, I think the Community will be as excited as I am about it. We will continue to implement updates to Fanbase to increase engagement and encourage the Community to use it.

  • DLive links are now clickable.
  • When sharing DLive links, the thumbnail of the post will be displayed.
  • When you receive a direct message a banner will be displayed, notifying you that a message has arrived.
  • Pinned messages have been enabled.
  • The owner of a Fanbase can delete messages. You can have the ability to delete your own messages as well.
  • Fanbase names can be changed at anytime now.
  • Notifications in your direct messages under Other have been added. To clarify, your Inbox is for people that you are following. If someone sends you a message and they are not followed by you, their messages will appear in the Other tab.
  • When opening Fanbase's or direct messages, the text will start at the latest message.
  • When a new message arrives there will be an Arrow icon above the text.
  • Real-time red dot counter on the icons for Fanbase's and direct messages.

Here is a quick preview!


Click to mute in live stream chat

I've read the concerns of our live streamers, that they weren't able to mute people in their live chat easily. In this update you will be able to click on a users name and mute them right from the chat window, instead of in the live dashboard.


In the future there will be plenty of badges and achievements that can be unlocked on the website, for both content creators and viewers. The first badge we are releasing is the Verified Creator Badge. To get verified we have created a form that can be filled out, once you are approved you will see a verified badge beside your name on the DLive website.


The requirements to get verified are:

  1. DLive account name.
  2. Verified email address and phone number on DLive.
  3. Live streamers must have a webcam and microphone.
  4. Video creators must mention DLive in their videos.
  5. Selfie with DLive written on a sheet of paper.
  6. Share something about DLive on your Social Media page(s).

Recognition for our content creators is so important to DLive and myself. We value all the time and effort that is put into making original content. We will continue to do our best to make you feel valued through badges and achievements. The verified creator badge is only the start.

Get your content creator account verified now!

Localized User Experience

Localization is something that is important to the platform and is one of our strategies for building a rewarding and engaging community. We don't want to restrict anyone from being able to navigate and use DLive. In this update the language will automatically change based on your IP address. With the language enhancement we have also added an additional European site to our content delivery network. This will increase performance for all users in Europe, especially Turkey and Poland.

Video Uploading Service

DLive v0.8.1 was a big update for our video service. We had some bugs on the release and had to roll back the changes. If you missed the announcement it can be found here. With DLive v0.8.2 we have sorted out the bugs from the previous version and added additional features.


  • HD 1080p videos are now supported.
  • Increased the video uploading speed in different regions.
  • .webm format is now supported.

Miscellaneous Updates and Fixes

  • Cover images not displaying has been fixed. The recommended aspect ratio for a cover image is 1500x500. If you change your cover image it may take a few minutes before it is applied. If you experience any issues try performing a hard refresh on your browser.
  • Upvotes on video comments will show an upvoted status with a percentage attached.


Before I end this post, I have exciting news to share with everyone. We have recently acquired the dlive.tv domain, which will be implemented into the whole product line soon. After the change to dlive.tv, we will also change the URL structure for your profile and content page. For example, my channel will be dlive.tv/@wa7. This change is to help creators share their personal channels with ease and to help you emphasize your personal brand. Plus no one wants to click a link with a long hash on the end of it :) We hope that everyone will continue to share DLive links to live streams and videos on their social media and tag @OfficialDLive.

Beautiful work guys! Amazing, to be precise!

nice mi friend

Thanks for new features. Really good to see more options. Congratulations.

a god damn legend


😼😻Finally YouTube competitors came around.

Nice to have you on our side!

"Selfie with Dlive written on a sheet of paper".

I'm so much happy to see that. We were the first one using this approach for our @super8ballclub gaming project to prevent multiple accounts and faced some criticism from some steemians. I believed that this is the only reliable option to verify someone and limit multiple accounts. I am very much happy to see that others doing the same and this would become the culture on the steem ecosystem.

Thank you for everything you do to improve this already great platform. Much appreciation from me!

Exactly, what a great ecosystem it will be. Atleast we will get verified and true users of every platform. I am happy that this system is adopted by such great platforms.

First of all, I am happy to hear about the 0.8.2 update of DLive. But, there seems to be a problem in the update process.

I made Korean language settings on DLive site. Nevertheless, I can not see Korean at all. (seems only English) Maybe, as the domain changed to '.TV', it seems that there is a problem with Korean translation. Please, I ask you to solve this problem.

Thank you.

@motiving2017, thanks for reporting this. I'll have someone look into it right away.

nice to see the progress

@wa7 do you have settings for 1080p in obs?

Seems awesome, i think i might even start doing live streams. Why not, if there's such a great way

🔥🔥🔥 Excited about all of these updates. Brb going to get verified!

So many freaking exciting news. I love to see what you guys are doing with the platform. And I had to send my verification form of course. 😁 keep it up with the amazing work and thank you.

I love the idea of Dlive.tv, also verifying the Dlivers is something I definitely welcome:)

Thanks @wa7

It's awesomely amazing!

Awesome update, I'm really excited to see the little bit about where you guys have added 1080p support for video uploads. That mute function will also be really nice to have on hand for streaming. Keep up the good work, guys!

Good stuff. Good power and energy to you on the progress.
May the ThemTube purge continue as the DLive, DTube, Steemit world strengthens!

You've received A Preemptive Strike from real simulcaster @shawnsporter on The Steeming Pile!

I'll be sharing this post on tomorrow's broadcast at 9:30pm EST on @dlive.

Again, great work & see you at The Pile!

I always support dlive and i am suggesting that Dlive should improve their servers speed to fasten its streaming service due to the fact that dlive users were increasing day by day

Hello @makesmesmile, thank you for your support and suggestion. We've been working on improving the live streaming experience and adding new servers constantly to make DLive more stable.

Wow dlive.tv. this is gonna be exciting.

nice one good post wa7

Greate news!

Nice :3 ~

That's great news. However, I am not sure if a persistent bug has been fixed that makes me unable to live stream using my Android phone. I downloaded bitstream on my phone and tried to set up a live stream with DLive and it didn't work. Somebody from Discord confirmed this bug and I still have not received any news about it being fixed. As long as I can't live stream with my phone, I will be unable to use DLive for the content I produce.

I hope this issue has been fixed or will be fixed in the near future.

We have an updated Android guide using myCaster . https://help.dlive.io/en/article/live-stream-using-mycaster-android

It's not as feature rich as bitstream, but does allow streaming from android :)

Thank you @tidylive and @jimmylin.

I will try out myCaster shortly

Hey @kenanqhd, we've had limited success from users trying to mobile stream on an android device but we are in the process of tweaking our live streaming servers to support this. We hope to have mobile streaming in the near future.

Very good post written in details , thanks

Thank you for the update. I stopped streaming because I needed spare time, but in time I will pick it up again. 😊

hello guys
anyone tell me what is Dlive ?

Hi acid. Looks like things are moving quite quickly and will be a big boost attracting more users to the platform. I think Dlive is going to go through a massive growth.

Well hello there @cryptoandcoffee, yes I do agree although this is not my post. :D

Lol. Maybe I am also lacking sleep.

supercalifragilistic-expialidocious !

I signed to verification! :D
I'm happy that DLive is growing, right now DLive have features like fanbase where you can't find it on other sites and I know that you gonna add new features to make DLive the best livestreaming platform! :D
I hope for that and for another update soon! :D

Very exciting updates to say the least. Pinned messages in the fanbase was something I was hoping get's implemented so I'm glad to see it here so soon. Have to say that Dlive has the most active development of any other Steem based projects.

Keep up the great work @wa7 and the rest of the DLive team! You are doing an awesome job.

WHAAAAT?!?! This is great! DLive is already a place to be and you are now making it even better! WHAAT?? That's crazy good!

Thanks a lot for being this good! Simple as that!

Does anyone here know of any altcoin or bitcoin traders who stream? I would love to watch some good traders in action.

but does the dlivetv shows the current live automatically ? Would be awesome

dlive.tv is currently forwarded to dlive.io, so yes navigating to that URL will display the current live streams and videos.

Awesome work and update guys. Love it!

These features are so cool! I'm gonna definitely be playing around with all these new and improved features. In the context of an additional site to the content delivery network, does this mean for example UK viewers will predominantly see UK streams first and foremost?
Congratulations again on another wonderful update.

Hey @lethaltoast, the addition of another EU site in our CDN means increased performance for live streaming and viewing of streams and videos. The sorting of live streams and videos are still the same.

Excellent, cheers for the clarification. Sounds good!

That's good

your post is awome and full of knowledge .........
i am new here please Upvote me thanks in advance :)

Thanks for your update!!

Thanks Charles!!!
Wow so much goodness!

Lots of streaming stuff that I need to experiment with. 😃

I plan to only occasionally live stream and use uploads mostly for several community service incentives so I don't think I'll be able to get verified (no mention in all videos).

I really appreciate the 1080 support.
I shared this about my recent move from dtube.

Thank You 💚
