Hey DLivers / Steemians,
It has been a while since we have had an update from the Development Team. The whole team has been hard at work and since we are approaching DLive version 0.8.0, I wanted to give the current users, and future users of DLive something to look forward to.
My team and I are constantly looking for ways to improve the user experience. This has always been one of my highest priorities. I want every person that uses DLive to feel a sense of ownership and to be proud, to be apart of this great community. I also want to welcome all genre's of content, there seems to be a status quo of gaming attached to live streaming, when that is not the case anymore. I love seeing a wide variety of content on DLive and I hope that this will continue.
Here are some of the features and upgrades that will be coming soon.
Have you ever been to a site and your video did not load or was missing? Video Storage and Performance is so critical for all of our users. DLive values all videos contributed to our platform and we strive to offer the best service. DLive will never delete any of your original content. We will allow you to control whether or not you want your content to be viewed on our platform.
DLive hosts an IPFS node and the video playback performance was not where we need it to be. This leads us to the decision to move away from IPFS, to a better performing video service. You will never have to worry about videos not loading when using DLive.
I want to cater to all of DLive's users, regardless of what your native language is. In the upcoming versions you will be able to change the language of the whole site. This will assist in helping us expand in all markets.
This leads me to a program that I have been working on, the DLive Ambassador Program. We will be looking for individuals of all languages to help us expand in different markets. If you think you can help DLive grow in your country, we want to hear from you in the comments below! The DLive Ambassadors will be rewarded based on, the impact of the newly onboarded user. There will be more details on this coming soon.
The Next Big Thing - Fanbase
We have a new feature called Fanbase that is coming soon. I don't want to say too much as the full details will be explained in an official post from @DLive. What you can you expect from Fanbase is, the ability to create your own community within DLive, whether you are a live broadcaster or video author. Some of the features include a new chat system with group chats and private chats.
I've included a few teaser pictures.
Site wide notifications are coming soon! You will be notified directly on the DLive website when, someone you follow uploads a video, you receive an upvote and much more.
Live Stream and Video Categorization
In the coming version, we will be changing our categorizations of live streams and videos. I want to thank everyone who took the time to do our survey. Your opinion matters to me and all of you are part of the reason for the re-classfication of categories.
