How to connect to Ustream Chats with Linkinus

  1. Download Linkinus and install the software on your Mac.
  2. Select "New Network" and enter "chat1.ustream.tv:6667" for the server.
  3. Enter your Ustream password in the Password field next to the hostname for Ustream.
    Important Tip: If you haven't already done so, we strongly suggest you register your chosen nick name on Ustream by creating a free Ustream account. If you don't register the nick name, someone else might do so and this would prevent you from continuing to use it in the future.

If you already setup Linkinus to connect to Ustream:

  1. Right click on the Status Window in Linkinus and click "Edit Connection".
  2. Click the crayon button to the right of the Ustream window.
  3. On the Inspector Window, enter your Ustream password in the Password field next to the hostname for Ustream.
  4. Below Ustream in the Inspector Window is your nickname that you have globally set. Click the Crayon button again and click Edit on the list that opens.
  5. Click the + button on the bottom left of the Identities part of the Linkinus Preferences and add your Ustream nickname. Do NOT enter your password in the "Authentication passwords (optional)".
