I just came across this topic. If you are still having an issue, verify your channel name. I've noticed that USTREAM doesn't necessarily use your Channel Name in USTREAM as the Chat Channel Name on the network. ie: My channel might be called "Channel" on ustream.tv but on the chat network it will be "Channel123" The easiest way to check this is to logon to the USTREAM Chat Network with mIRC and do a /whois on someone you know who is on the channel when connected via the website. It should show the actual channel name they are connected to. Then just /join that channel and you should see everyone.

Hiya Magicalpig, ty for your help, i can do what you say on mIRC chat and i can see both my nickname(mod) and my broadcasting name on Ustream channel but its only when im using old setting on ustream chat but now they are changing to a new chat without flash for the old chat settings in Interactivity on ustream that mIRC is not connecting with ustream chat for me to see both my nick and broadcasting name on ustream channel so i think its to do with new chat, does mIRC rely on using flash player so it can connect to ustream chat? because its only working together with it when i change back to old chat settings on ustream under legacy chat, the old settings for ustream chat(legacy) finnish on 31/8/17 but when i go on chat with mIRC on my channel i wont see people coming on chat even though i have same settings for my channel and updated everything, hope you know what i`m trying to say?, you may have to try it yourself on ustream and have mirc to see what i mean.

ty

Looks like we are SOL. I don't broadcast much anymore but if their new chat isn't robust I'll probably find another solution for my broadcasts. I'm not IBM's demographic anyway. Once they bought Ustream I knew the writing was on the wall. I enjoy engaging with my viewers and using an IRC client over web based was so much more convenient. All of their documentation on their new "White Label Chat" (Custom unbranded chat) indicates chatting via IRC clients will not work. It specifically doesn't say it will not but I'm not to hopeful. The wording of the following statement I found in one of their docs seem to say "IRC Chat" will no longer work. Although their new chat does seem to utilize the protocol.

"Here are some of White Label Chat's highlighted features

Ustream accounts are no longer a requirement to log into the new chat. You just choose a nickname and you should be able to participate in the discussion.
No longer Flash based
Newly created channels only see the New Chat and not the IRC chat.
Existing channels have the ability to switch from IRC chat to the New Chat manually until Aug 31, 2017"

The fact that they use term "IRC Chat" indicates to me their version will not support it.

Oh well.

Oh gosh so there`s no hope for using mIRC with ustream chats, lets hope they will support it in the near future or even if mIRC can get around it with new updates to solve the problem , we can only hope!, for now i`m still using old chat on Ustream with mIRC but i think they will give me less options for chat and i need to change to new chat soon i guess, thanks for your help and support!
