About Owncast

Get Listed on the Owncast Directory

You too can get listed on directory.owncast.online! It's easy!

By default an Owncast server does not list itself on the directory. Follow these steps to get yourself added.

  1. Make sure you're running the most recent version of Owncast.
  2. Open your config.yaml file.
  3. Under the yp section set enabled to true.
  4. Set instanceURL to the public URL of your Owncast server. (For example: https://stream.coolcrew.net).
  5. Make sure your name, summary, logo, tags, and NSFW are all set to how you want them under instanceDetails.
  6. NOTE: If you are streaming NSFW content and don't set NSFW to true you will be removed from the directory.

This directory is operated as a complimentary service by the Owncast project to share people's streams. There is no obligation to list any specific server or topic. Any server can be removed at any time for any reason.
