Virtual Gifts Restored!

All virtual gifts should now be restored.  If your virtual gifts are still missing please contact our helpdesk.

Gifts that were given by Camfrog were not restored.  If you were given a gift by Camfrog please let the person know who gave you the gift and we’ll re-add it manually. This should only effect a few people.

Thank you for your patience.

Camfrog Mac Client Block December 1

Starting December 1st all Mac Camfrog client versions before 1.7 will be blocked.

Camfrog Mac 1.7 has technology that makes it cross-compatible with our older Mac versions.  This means that if you are using Camfrog Mac 1.7 and an older version Mac user is viewing you then your bandwidth and CPU usage is doubled.  This is because your 1.7 Mac client is sending out two video streams.  One video stream is a 1.7 version video stream and the other is an earlier version video stream.  These double cross-compatible video streams also cause Camfrog client 1.7 to use more CPU resources and it causes people hosting Camfrog Servers to send out twice as much bandwidth.

We have given Camfrog Mac users since July (5 months) to upgrade to Camfrog 1.7 and we feel now is the right time to ask all Mac users to upgrade.  If you are having technical problems with 1.7 please report your problem so we can fix it as soon as possible.

Virtual Gifts Bug

This morning we are having a temporary technical problem where some virtual gifts are missing.  We are working on solving the problem as soon as possible.  Sorry for any inconvenience.
