I cannot see my video image. What is the problem?

First of all check if all cables are connected and if Your camera drivers are installed properly. Make sure that no other application is accessing Your camera and that You have the latest Flash player installed. You can download it from this location: http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer. You need to select Your camera in Flash settings as follows:

  1. Right-click (CTRL-click for Mac users) on the video image
  2. Choose "Settings..." from the menu appearing
  3. Choose "Privacy" menu and Allow access to Your camera
  4. Click on the small web camera icon to access Camera menu
  5. Choose the camera You have installed

How do I set my audio?

In order to provide audio feed You have to have a microphone. The device itself is relatively inexpensive and many webcams actually have it integrated. Most of the microphones have a so called Jack-plug to connect to Your computer with. This should be plugged into the pink (or red) connector of Your computer's audio device.

When going live using the software OranumCam, you will be asked to select your microphone from the first drop down menu.

I have no sound. What could be the problem?

Check if all cables are connected and your sound device drivers are installed properly. Make sure that you have the latest Flash player installed. You can download Flash here: http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer.

Slow Camera Feed or Low Bandwidth Problems

In case your camera feed is slow you probably have a poor internet connection. In that case, you should be notified by the Support Team. Please follow these steps in order to solve the problem:

  1. Turn off all the other applications that might use your internet connection (like Skype, Chrome, Safari, etc).
  2. Go to http://speedtest.dditservices.com/, click on the "Begin Test" button and measure Your internet connection speed. When You contact our Support Team, please provide them with the Reference Number You received after the speed test.
  3. If Your download speed is less than 2Mb/sec and/or upload speed is less than 1024 Kb/sec then please call Your ISP (Internet Service Provider company) for more information. Most probably You will have to upgrade Your internet connection.
  4. If You use our Performer Optimum software, please make sure that Your system meets the minimum requirements
  5. Please do not use a wireless connection to perform on Oranum.com
  6. We would like to suggest using the free Mozilla Firefox browser (available at http://www.mozilla.com/), install the latest Adobe Flash Player version (available at http://www.adobe.com/downloads), delete the temporary internet files from Your browser completely and restart it.
  7. Also, please uninstall any kind of toolbars like Yahoo! or Google from the browser.

Useful tips and tricks

I have low traffic in my room

The amount of visitors in your room may vary from time to time. Here are a few things that can improve your traffic and position on the homepage:

  1. Have a high quality profile picture
  2. Make sure that you have at least 5 photos in your Free Content section
  3. Check if you have a good Audio rating.
  4. Check if you have Oranum Selection. If not, please contact our Support Chat for more information.
  5. Test test test. Figure out which time of the day you have the most visitors and be online as much as you can.

I don't have any Members visiting my channel

All guests are potential Members - in fact most Members were guests once. As a Psychic do your best to convert visitors into loyal Members.

What should I do if someone is insulting me or spamming my Free chat room?

If someone is advertising another website in your chat room please click the 'Report Bug/Spam' button in the software.

What should I do in a Private Session?

When somebody takes you to a Private Consultation, you will hear a “fanfare” sound. From that moment, it is only you and the member in the Private chat room. This is when the paying consultation begins.  The first thing you want to do in a Private Consultation is to make sure that the member can see you and hear you clearly. For this you can either call out to the member or type a question into the chat box like ‘Can you see me and hear me well?’. After the Member confirms that everything is working properly, you can start the reading. During a Private Consultation, make sure the member feels that all your attention is fully his/hers. Feel free to use all your techniques and tools. Take advantage of being on camera: show your tools, cards, show the spread, and maintain eye contact. 

Bear in mind fans pay per minute they spend with you in a Private Session.

Who are Admins in the Free chat room?

In case someone visits your Free chat room using a name such as Admin or Oranum Admin and asks for a 'promotion show' make sure you DO NOT provide them with one. Our Admins will always contact you privately. Anyone else pretending to be an Admin should be banned.

I haven't received my money! What should I do?

All Your earnings are managed by Your Master account owner (Studio boss). In case You have problems with Your payments contact him/her.

How can I earn more money?

The amount of money you make is completely up to you. Make sure your live shows have the best possible quality and that they are engaging. There are tricks that could boost your income.
