Understanding Restream Chat Filter System

The Restream Chat can be broken down into three major parts; Filters, Whisper Display, and Permissions. Each can be used to make the Restream Chat a better reading experience for both the streamer and their chat. 

Filters

This section is used for basic filtering of words and phrases from your chat room.

  • Filter Words: Here is where you can add each word or phrase you'd like to be filtered from your chat.
  • Hide message in App Window:  Choosing this Radial Menu will hide your filtered messages from the Application Window (The part you always see)
  • Hide message in Web UI:  Choosing this Radial Menu will hide your filtered messages from the Web UI (The part you embed in your stream.

Whisper Display

Most streaming services don't use a Whisper Service and so a lot of users don't use this option. However, if you are streaming on a website like Twitch, you may be wanting to control who can see your whispers and this category provides that.

  • Show in App Window: Allows Whispers to be displayed in the Restream Application Window (The part you see)
  • Show in Web UI: Allows Whispers to be displayed in the Restream Web UI (The part you embed in your stream)

Permissions

This allows you to take control of all the chatters in your channels and setting specifics permissions to them. Each platform has the ability to add user groups which define groups or specific names.

  • Message in App Window: Allow the filtered Group or Name to removed from the Restream Application Window (The part you see)
  • Message in Web UI: Allow the filtered Group or Name to be removed from the Restream Web UI (The part you embed in your stream)
