What Do I Need to Perform on Oranum.com? 

We are happy to welcome you to our Oranum community. As a starter, let us introduce what you need to go online and stream on the site. Once you registered as a broadcaster all you need is a good quality web camera, a computer and an internet connection to start. However, for the perfect streaming quality, the right equipment is needed. The better grade camera, stronger computer and faster connection you have, the higher quality your stream will be.

Once you have the equipment, you will be able to go online via our own DoclerCam streaming application and start your show right away. Our streaming application comes in two forms; the built in browser version and the higher quality standalone software.

Below you can see the technical requirements for both DoclerCam - Standalone and DoclerCam - Browser. With the minimum requirements you can run the software with a stable image quality, while with the recommended specifications you can stream at HD quality.

We strongly recommend using a desktop PC with ethernet cable connection, instead of a laptop (or notebook) for your work because of performance and heat issues (notebooks will often downgrade performance in order to prevent damaging due to heat), furthermore a desktop PC will most likely provide you a wider range of possibilities (e.g.: upgrading hardware).

Using MacBook Air is not recommended for online streaming as it's specifications do not meet the site's requirements and has no proper Ethernet cable port available, which would be needed for a stable internet connection.

To help make your streaming quality even better please check out our Technical Troubleshoot page.

Adobe Flash Player 

Oranum.com uses Flash technology to stream live camera feeds and to operate the chat interface on the site. For this reason, it is crucial to have the latest Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer. Chrome comes with a built-in flash player but for other browsers, you may install or update it if necessary from here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

To run the standalone DoclerCam software, you will need the latest version of Flash Player installed in Internet Explorer (or Edge) as well.

Camera  

To be able to stream on the site you will need a camera with 1920x1080 pixels resolution which can stream at a 30 frames per second (FPS) rate or higher.

To achieve an HD quality and the Good Appearance rating you will need one of our recommended cameras, set to a 16:9 resolution in DoclerCam
