Late last week Bambuser users receive a newsletter informing them of the new streaming restrictions that the company would be implementing.

"Starting September 27, 2013, we will restrict broadcasting via standalone RTMP-broadcasting applications. Our Flash-based web broadcaster will still be available for everyone. Using standalone broadcasting applications for RTMP streaming will be available only for Premium users.
As a part of our pledge to support freedom of speech around the globe, we continue to grant selected citizen journalists a complimentary upgrade to our Premium services. To apply, please send an email to
 , describing your use case and why you'd like to be considered for an upgrade."

Bambuser has also explained why the sudden change to its service :

"Due to widespread misuse of our free service by non-profit organizations such as sport clubs, radio stations and churches, we've been forced to become more strict and enforce our terms of use, by locking down the professional features to the Premium solutions."

The ability to stream via a stand alone application like Wirecast, Vidblaster, and Flash Media Encoder will be only available for Premium Users. Premium Packages start at around 99 dollars per month.
