Default You can't!

You can only disable ads if you become a premium livestream user!

I actually have to say I really don't like livestream. I'd love to watch my friends' streams when they're drawing. I enjoy watching them. But the constantly having to close out the banner ads on the bottom of the window, and the having to wait five minutes for an ad that "will end in 30 seconds) and sounds like a broken record of "ah... eh... do... ie... ii... gu..." and not being able to even mute it, pause it or buffer it... I end up feeling like I've been violated and it's distracting at best, intrusive at worse, and annoying constantly.
I can't watch the streams, much less actually stream, because of them.

asryakino,

We appreciate your feedback. Check out the New Livestream platform. It's free and has no advertising on the stream. Here's an example of an already produced Event by a free user: http://new.livestream.com/accounts/1...events/1552981

Default Advertisements in Livestream Channels

Before the frequency of advertisements on the system was manageable, but now I can't even watch my own stream and make sure it is not having any issues without an advertisement every 5 minutes. It's starting to get annoying. I understand that you guys need to make money and what not, but I can easily switch to Justin.tv and have NO advertisements, as well as a steady stream, and be able to broadcast over 500kb/s.

And what's with the advertisements jumping in when the stream is off? Sometimes I leave the webpage open, and it wakes me up in the middle of the night (Computer is in my bedroom) because an advertisement suddenly jumps up out of no where. Also, can we turn off the sound for them?

They are 100% aggravating, and there is nothing good about them. If you're going to have so many of them, at least make them 5-10 seconds, not 30 PLUS another 30 of "If you don't click this button we're going to give you a blank screen with the product we just advertised plastered on". If I'm streaming, I'm busy streaming whatever I'm doing and can't click off this thing because you guys can't pay your own services.

I'll be honest, if this system is the quality you get if you were to go Premium, I feel bad for anyone who does.

I totally agree, the bombardment of adds is really really annoying. Stick with the bottom adds, those get the message accross, if anyone wants to click they will click, and they arn't super annoying. But the rate you guys have put adds at is not long-term profitable, whatever cash you squeeze out now you chase out new AND old users.

I totally agree with the above sentiment. I have had at least 8 different viewers complain. They have brought it to my attention in the span of my 45 minute to 1 hour and 15 minute live broadcasts they see full screen advertisements that last 30 seconds to 1 minute and they can not hear or see what I am explaining in the live feed. I think that if there are going to be full screen ads on the free channels they should be limited to when the auto pilot is on and the length of the ads should be capped at 15 seconds (similar to Hulu). It makes no sense for ads to totally interrupt when it is obvious that a "Live" feed is being broadcast. The whole point of your service is live streaming video, not streaming ads over live content. I have been producing my live weekly show with your service going on for the 3rd year. Please revert the ads that air during live feeds to the text ads that can be expanded if the viewer clicks on it to see more. Also my channel is about cooking, and it would be nice if the ads were at least somewhat related. Thanks, hope to hear a reply about how this issue is being addressed.

Nearly everybody of my users (somteimes 600-800 viewers) is complaining about the new advertisement in the flash player. I can totally understand that there needs to be advertisement but popping out a "McDonalds" ad ever 10 Seconds for about 1/3 of the screen is hardcore oO. And then the button to click it away is black on black background :X Thats ultra heavy and i guess i already have someviewer not coming back anymore because of that ^^

cheers
