Hey all! I'm streaming again tonight - this time a bit more casual. Going to be working on some art and then just chilling with some random crafts or games afterward.

random question! did you use any other streaming services before picarto? (i vaguely remember you having a livestream account...?) i was curious about starting up streaming again - how's picarto compare? o:


hoping to catch one of these soon when i'm not working! c:

Hey! It'd be fun if you could catch the stream c: A really long time ago I used LiveStream and uStream before that (wow). Both of those sites had their own proprietary streaming software with some really limited options/customization. On Picarto, you can use your own software (so I use OBS) which gives you way more control over what you show, your overlays, and recordings! I believe you can use XSplit too c:

Darn I was enjoying the beginning of that one but mom is here for a few weeks and I won't probably have time for a while!

Do your streams get saved anywhere? I'd love to watch, but I can't figure out if Picarto saves them. And sadly everyone streams when I'm about to go to bed TAT

Hey, Picarto actually does allow premium users to record their streams. It's a feature they incorporated a few months ago. 

However, it's up to the artist to select for this feature to be used.

Hey hon! I'm sorry to say that they don't get saved! What time works best for you on Sundays? (Can you use time zone UTC?)

The saved video feature is free on twitch, by the way, in case you ever... think about... that... wink wink. It's also very easy to stand out in the art category!

I often stream movies and TV series so I don't think it'd be a good idea for me to save videos for watching on demand, I'm sorry ;u; I originally started using Picarto because the artist community was not well established on Twitch at the time, and Twitch also would not (and still does not, I believe) allow guests to chat. However, Picarto has disabled that now as of a few weeks ago, so I may consider moving - it depends.

I don't know the definition of "guests", i think you have to have a twitch login to chat, but it's free and you don't need to be a streamer to use it. But if you stream copyrighted music your videos recording gets muted automatically. Not sure if there is any other deterrents than that though.

That is sad news :( Timezones can be so annoying. Thanks for letting me know :)
