You found a super fun YouTube video, and now you want to share it in your room. Well, instead of just copying the link, have a YouTube watching party. Download the the latest update to Camfrog, and you can share a video, and everyone in the room can watch it at the same time, with synchronized playback!
Chat in the room while the video is playing, or pop out the video into it’s own window. If you’re an operator, or owner of a room, you can start a YouTube party by opening up the built in OpTools window, and clicking on the new YouTube tab. Simply copy/paste the video URL into the box, and press the Play button. That’s all there is to it! You can pause, stop, or seek to a specific part of the video from here, and everyone will be able to watch along!
Download the latest version of Camfrog today to join in the fun!
Note, some rooms may need to update their Server software to support YouTube parties.
We’re working on adding support for Mac and Mobile devices as well. Stay tuned!

Do you want to open your own Camfrog video chatroom, but don’t know where to start, or don’t want to have to deal with dedicated servers? Have no worries! We have made a special directory of Camfrog chatroom hosters.
You can browse through a list of hosting companies, and choose the provider you would like to use. These providers all use our new Distributed server system, which means that you will have full control over your chatroom through a special, secure webpage on camfrog.com. You don’t have to download any software at all, you can launch and manage your room all from the website! If you had a great experience with your chosen hoster, you can even leave a star rating, and feedback, to help other users find a quality hoster.
Visit hosting.camfrog.com to browse the available room hosters, and start your own chatroom today!
It’s easy. Find a hosting provider in the directory, and visit their website, or contact them using the information in their hoster profile. The hosting provider will give you a special access code, which you will use to launch and manage your room. You don’t need to register a hosting account, if you are just going to open a room on an existing hoster.
When you purchase room hosting from a hosting provider, you will receive a secret activation code. You will use that code to launch your room, and also to manage it. So be sure to keep your activation code secret.
Are you a room hoster?
We are very excited to announce the new Camfrog Distributed Server (CDS) for room hosters. This specialized software allows you to host many chatrooms, across multiple servers. Your customers can have full access to manage their room directly from your hosting page on camfrog.com. Not only that, but you can appear in the Hoster Directory.
Camfrog Distributed Server is designed for hosters that run multiple Camfrog rooms. If you are only hosting 1 room, or a small number, Camfrog Server might be better suited for you. CDS is an advanced software package, designed to run across multiple servers.
How does it work?
Once you set CDS up on your servers, and have it working, you can then appear in the hosters directory. Anyone looking to open a Camfrog room ends up here, where they can see your contact information and website. You generate a special activation code for your customer, which allows them to login to your hosting control panel to launch their room on your servers. If you are an advanced server hoster, you can register for your own hosting account. Once you have verified your hoster account, you will have access to download the software packages, as well as other information on how to get started.
