Get Started with Camfrog Webcam Chat
This is a very basic guide to get started with Camfrog. If you want to know the more advanced features go back to the help page and view the user guide. If you need help view the frequently asked questions page.
See People and Be Seen
The first thing you probably want to do with Camfrog is see some people live on webcam to test out the video and audio streaming. The first window you will see is your contact list. At the bottom it says video chat room list. Click that link and a web page will open with all available video chat rooms. Join the Camfrog room by clicking the link. If it will not let you join press join chat in your contact list and type in the word Camfrog and press OK to join.
You are now on webcam and everyone can see you. To see other users click their names in the user list on the right. If you do not want people to see you press the webcam icon in your local video window to pause your video. To unpause press the webcam icon again.
Press the talk button to send audio to the room. You can only talk when someone else is not talking already. If your audio is too loud press audio settings to adjust your recording level.
To send an instant message to users right click their name and choose IM User. From the IM window you can block users, send a snapshot (webcam photo), view their online profile, and add them to your contact list to see when they are online. If someone is making a loud noise or typing bad text in the room you can right click their name and choose ignore.
If you do not like multi-user videoconferencing in the chat rooms you can also find users to talk to one on one in the user directory.
