You need to make your own images. I may make preset later if you ask me so.

I'm live. But my status won't change.

First, wait for 60 seconds. Ustream Status uses cache. It only check the live/offline status once every 120 seconds.

If you don't see the change os status after 120 seconds you become live, you may have misspelled your Ustream ID, your WordPress site may be having hard time reaching Ustream Server, or your IP may be blocked from Ustream Server.

How can I check if Ustream server is working or not?

In order to check if Ustream service itself is working or not, you could directly ping their server by going to


Replace the last "XXXX" to your account ID (e.g., YokosoNews) when you're live. You should be able to see like s:4:"live";, in your browser.

  • You mistyped your Ustream channel ID
  • You mistyped the wrong URL of images
  • Ustream Server may be having some problem.
  • Your WordPress server may be blocked from Ustream Server
