How do I make my stream less laggy?

First thing to try is to lower the bitrate and lower the FPS and use a lower resolution when you make the room if that still isn't enough. There are presets in the room settings menu you can use as well as the '/setkbps' and '/fps' commands you can use manually. The bitrate is an upper limit, if it's too low compared to the fps and resolution you've chosen it will struggle, so you want to find the sweet spot and only lower it if your internet speed is slow.

How do I give the remote to someone else?

Click on their avatar in the user list or in chat and then click "Allow Control". They can now pick up and drop the remote too. If they leave or get disconnected you'll have to give them permission again.

How do I make X site work?

Certain sites might require you use a VPN. We provide one as a courtesy accessible via the FoxyProxy extension. You may also use one of the pre-installed vpn extensions with your own account.

Where is my verification email?

Usually it will arrive within a minute or two but it can take longer. Please check your spam/junk folder.

Is porn allowed on Caracal?

No. Any accounts streaming porn will be disabled. This rule includes private rooms. R-rated movies with nudity are okay.

Is it safe to login into my accounts in a room on Caracal?

Yes. The browser session is cleared once the room is killed. Do take care when giving others the remote if you've logged into any sites, however.

What do my connection test results mean?

Speed result

Connectivity result

A pass means you are able to connect to our room-servers, fail means it was impossible to establish a connection, this can have multiple causes:

In case of a failed connectivity test there is nothing we can do on our end, since the problem lies with either your browser, network or internet service provider.

Subscription and Keycodes

What is the difference between subscription and keycodes?



If you have raid-protection enabled we take extra steps to make sure the people entering your room are valid users and not people trying to circumvent previous bans. You can toggle this feature from within your already running room at any time through the settings menu ("Enable Anti-Raid").
