Activities that result in a DMCA Copyright strike against your channel involves the wrongful distribution of either audio or video content through your Twitch livestream or VOD.
Tenami protects your Twitch channel from Copyright strikes by fully removing the act of distributing Copyright infringing material from your Twitch stream. Instead, this process is handled through Tenami where the content can then be distributed via the respective owner.
Video and audio content is not delivered to a viewer until after they have satisfied all requirements and have fully authorized with the video provider that they are allowed to watch. For example, a viewer would be unable to watch a Netflix show or movie until after they have logged into their Netflix account with an active subscription.
Tenami is not a work around DMCA, but instead works in line with DMCA to ensure that content is distributed legally and that your stream is protected.
Tenami uses the Twitch API for logging into your account - meaning that we have no knowledge of what your password or anything like that actually is.
In fact, when you use streaming software such as Streamlabs OBS, you are giving Streamlabs full privileges to access essentially all information about your account such as deleting all of your followers or accessing your stream key.
In Tenami's case, we ask for the bare minimum amount of privileges. All we need is your account name to verify that you are who you claim to be, as well as the list of people that you follow!
Login information for video platforms such as Netflix, Crunchyroll, and any future supported platforms are handled exclusively through their respective services and are not handled by Tenami.
Yes you can! Simply select "Host Lobby" on Tenami's homepage, and change your lobby type to "Private."
You will be given a share code which you can then send to your friends so that they can watch along with you.
Yes! When syncing videos to a Twitch stream, Tenami calculates the stream delay for each individual viewer.
This ensures that video content from Netflix, Crunchyroll, YouTube, etc will always be in sync with the Twitch stream.
In other words, all reactions and surprises are perfectly tailored to arrive right on cue!
If the video is not available in your region, you will be unable to access the video. Tenami will notify you when this event occurs.
Yes. An active account and subscription is required to watch anything on Netflix.
Alternatively, other video services such as Crunchyroll and YouTube offer a majority of their video content without an account or paywall. Similarly to Netflix, a subscription is required to access premium content, such as the latest anime episodes on Crunchyroll.
We in the process of building a mobile version of Tenami for iOS and Android. We currently do not support Tenami on mobile devices.
However, if you are absolutely desparate to use Tenami on your mobile device, it is possible to stream the desktop version of Tenami from your computer to your phone through Steam's Steamlink.
That being said, Tenami is unafiliated with this process and it most likely will require a decent amount of troubleshooting on your part. We were hesitant to even mention this workaround, however for the sake of transparency and authenticity we decided that it was the right thing to do.
The Tenami popup will only appear on Twitch.tv if the broadcaster you are watching is currently hosting a Tenami lobby.
If they are currently hosting a lobby:
If you have just downloaded the Tenami application and Chrome Extension, be sure to open up the Tenami application once to complete setup.
Alternatively, you will not recieve an invite to a Tenami lobby if you are viewing Twitch through the Alternate Player for Twitch.tv Chrome Extension. Once you visit the page directly your popup will appear.
Lastly, you may also open the Tenami application manually or by clicking the Tenami Chrome Extension at any time while watching a livestreamer.
