Enqueueing[edit | edit source | hide]

Requirements[edit | edit source | hide]

Longest allowed video duration is 35 minutes.[1]

Live streams[edit | edit source | hide]

To be enqueued, there has to be at least 50 people watching the stream on YouTube. The stream will be played for exactly 10 minutes.

Pricing[edit | edit source | hide]

Videos[edit | edit source | hide]

JungleTV also offers an opt-in feature which makes the video unskippable, but raises video cost by 19 times. As long as the user sends an amount of Banano that is equal or greater than provided price, JungleTV adds the video to the queue and follows user's chosen option.

Live streams[edit | edit source | hide]

Price for streams is the same as videos.

Enqueueing options[edit | edit source | hide]

Videos[edit | edit source | hide]

There are three available options to enqueue a video.

Adding the video to the end of the queue[edit | edit source | hide]

This is the option to enqueue a video for lowest price.

Playing the video right after the current playing video[edit | edit source | hide]

The system adds video to the queue, and it will be played when the current video ends. This tier charges more Banano.

Skipping the current video and play immediately[edit | edit source | hide]

This option is the most expensive one. The playing video will be skipped and rewards from it get distributed to all eligible viewers.

Protect video from being skipped[edit | edit source | hide]

When enabled, the fees used to enqueue video will be increased by 6.9 times. Moderators still can skip unskippable videos.

Selecting a part of the video[edit | edit source | hide]

This allows users to enqueue any videos, regardless of original video's duration. Users can choose to play a part of video (35 minutes or shorter).

Live streams[edit | edit source | hide]

Users have the right to make live broadcasts unskippable, and the three enqueueing options for videos are also applied for streams.[2]

JungleTV points[edit | edit source | hide]

JungleTV first introduced the system on May 2, 2022 in which user can earn points from solving captchas, chatting, and enqueueing media. The length of the media is correlation to the amount of rewards in points. The points can be used to send GIF in the chat, reposition videos in the queue, reduce community skip fees, as well as subscribe to the Nice subscription.

Users can also buy JungleTV points with Banano at the rate of 0.01 BAN per point. [3]

Nice subscription[edit | edit source | hide]

At the price of 6900 Nice points, this monthly subscription allows subscribers to send Banano emojis (ported from Banano Discord server, and custom emojis created by the community or JungleTV), decreases the JungleTV points needed on operations requiring them, and reduces captcha frequency.

Commands[edit | edit source | hide]

Crowfunded skipping and community tipping[edit | edit source | hide]

The features are available when the queue is active.

Crowfunded skipping[edit | edit source | hide]

JungleTV has a pool for skipping videos. If the pool receives enough Banano, the playing video will be skipped. The amount of required Banano depends on the video. Skipping fund will always be added to the payout of the video, even it doesn't reach skipping threshold. This feature is not available for unskippable videos.[4]

Community tipping[edit | edit source | hide]

This reward pool goes toward a video's reward. Anyone can increase payout amount by sending Banano to tip address. The enqueuer of the video will receive 20% of the tip if they are active on the website in the last 15 minutes before the video ends.[5]

FAQ[edit | edit source | hide]

Why should I change my representative?[edit | edit source | hide]

Changing your representative is needed to verify the ownership of the Banano address. The representative is not a working representative and it doesn't affect your balance, as well as transactions.

Why is a WAX wallet necessary?[edit | edit source | hide]

At the moment, JungleTV has a collaboration with CryptomonKeys[14], an NFT collection on WAX blockchain. Moreover, JungleTV also mints its NFTs on WAX. In order to claim the NFT rewards, users need to link a WAX address to their JungleTV identity.
