Microsoft just recently released an update to Windows 8. If you’ve installed this update, you might experience some difficulties with Camfrog immediately afterwords. Have no fear though! You can get back to hopping after your Windows 8.1 upgrade, just follow these simple steps:
First, open your Start Menu/Tile Menu. Find the Camfrog Video Chat icon, and right-click on it (or tap/hold if you’re using a touchscreen) to bring up the menu on the bottom, then press the “Uninstall” button to uninstall Camfrog.
After you have completely uninstalled Camfrog, visit http://download.camfrog.com to download and install the latest version of Camfrog.
If you still have any questions or concerns about this, please feel free to contact our Helpdesk
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.
With Camfrog Pro, you can now see everything that goes on in your favorite chatrooms, with multiple video windows! Not only will you be able to see all your friends, with live, super-fast video, you’ll also have your nickname show up as bold pro user to everyone else in the room!
Camfrog Pro for iPad also supports our new streaming technology, so you can have even faster, better quality video.
We have been working hard to bring this out, and we just know you’re going to love it as much as we do. It makes videochatting on your iPad even more fun than before!
