Show Ads Around The Video ChatAVChat does not bother broadcasting streams that are not being viewed by anyone. That means such streams do not eat up any bandwidth from your monthly bandwdith plan.
Less Money Spent on BandwidthAVChat 3 automatically prevents audio and video streams from actually being broadcasted if no one is watching them thus reducing the monthly bandwidth bill on your media server. More info in our blog post on this feature.
Sell MembershipsIf you have a membership based website then you can allow access to the chat - or some of it’s features - only to registered, premium - paying - members. This will encourage more free members to upgrade to your premium plan to have access to more cams, send private messages, create rooms, etc.

Smart Flood PreventionAVChat uses a smart algorithm to prevent a user to flood a room with messages. We won’t say more about it besides the fact that it works great! :)

Block Emails and LinksAVChat can be congired to now show links or emails in the chat.
Video Stream WatermarkAs a site owner you can define a watermark to be shown over each video stream during viewing. This helps prevent re-broadcasting.
Filename Check for AdminsIn certain countries with dynamic ips like Brazil it is hard to limit who can access the admin features based on ip so we’ve added a feature where only if your admin interface - admin.swf - has a certain file name you will be allowed to perform admin functions like kick, ban, delete room, etc.
Disabled Localhost ConnectionsBy default AVChat does not allow connections from localhost. We do this to prevent other localhost installations from connecting to yours.
Report Members (With Email API)AVChat’s report members feature is really powerful. As a user you can report webcams or members. As an admin you can view reports, access report data, view screenshots of the reported webcam and text chat, and even receive instant emails when a someone reports something.

Detailed info about each userAs an admin you can view a lot of detailed information about each user in the chat room: ip, flash player version, OS, connection protocol, who the user is looking at.
Extended chat historyWhen an admin joins a room he immediately sees the last 100 lines of text chat. This gives him the ability to analyse what happened while he was away.
