Monetize Better

Show Ads Around The Video Chat

AVChat 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 Bandwidth

AVChat 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 Memberships

If 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.

Pay Per View Revenue

Integrate the PPV API with your existing website credits and charge members for presence in the chat or for viewing streams.

Affiliate Revenue

AVChat’s rotating messages robot can be configured to show affiliate links in your chat to related - and complementary - products and services. Clicks on such links will generate revenue for your/your website.

Encrypt Everything

Limited Extensions For Uploads

By default, in AVChat, you can only share files - with users or rooms - that have an extension that’s included in an editable permitted extensions list. You can add or remove extensions from this list.

Rooms Flood Protection

AVChat ships with a configurable limit of 100 maximum rooms to prevent users from spamming the chat by creating many rooms. In addition, as an admin, you cand delete many rooms at once by selecting multiple rooms using SHIFT or CTRL+Click

Smart Flood Prevention

AVChat 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! :)

IP Check for Admins

If you want certain rooms hidden from users it’s possible. Users will only see rooms assigned to them.

Domain Check Against SWF Location

If you want certain rooms hidden from users it’s possible. Users will only see rooms assigned to them.

Secure Script Execution

Certain scripts are executed only by your media server. Their execution can be limited to only when the media server calls them using the media server IP.

Block Emails and Links

AVChat can be congired to now show links or emails in the chat.

Video Stream Watermark

As 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 Admins

In 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 Connections

By 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.

Using the admin interface you can login as hidden or as visible using the normal male/female/couple icons or a special admin icon.

Full rooms management capabilities

Admins can create new rooms,delete existing ones (or groups of rooms), they can close rooms or edit them.

Join private rooms without passwords

Admins can join private rooms without needing the passwords. Just one of the joys of being an admin. The site owner can turn off this ability off.

Admins can view private messages sent between users. The site owner can turn off this ability off.

Kick and ban users

As an admin you can kick and ban users (using ip, cookies or username) for bad behaviour. You can also ban specific ip's and ip ranges or usernames.

Silence users
