Advanced features like transcoding and HLS/MPEG-Dash live video delivery, country access restrictions involve specific hosting requirements.

How it Works

Performers join to earn money. They turn on their webcams and hang out in public rooms waiting for members to chat. Performers are listed on a page (live performers show first) and site visitors can join them.

Paying clients can invite performers to do private video chat shows and pay per minute. They first need to register as clients and add some money to their virtual wallet on site to be able to request private shows.

Payments go from clients to site owner’s account depending on billing gateway (multiple supported). Site owner can see earnings for each performer and send payments as necessary.

Billing

Clients can prepay credits that can be used for ppv chat. Billing is integrated with myCRED plugin that includes PayPal Standard, Skrill (Moneybookers), NETbilling, Zombaio, BitPay (bitcoin). Other payment modules are available for extra: 2checkout, ComproPago, CoinBase, CoinPayments, PayFast, Payza, Robokassa, Stripe, WePay.

Desktop Sharing / Screen Broadcasting

If your users want to broadcast their screen (when playing a game, using a program, tutoring various computer skills) they can do that easily just by using a screen sharing driver that simulates a webcam from desktop contents.

Reviews

Disapointing so far

This plugin has some really good points but alas, it lacks extensive documentation and the support has been very lacking! Im waiting now 4 days for a response to a very important issue and no reply at all. We are serious about our business and fast support is a must. Its really lacking.

This plugin has so many positive points, and really could work well but is badly badly let down by the terrible support and lack of extensive documentation.

We are going to give it another 24 hours and if no change then sadly will cancel our account with this company and find another solution.
