Let’s face facts, the camming industry is not the same as it used to be. You can’t log on and just make $50 an hour like you could years ago. The Japanese cam site have become over saturated with models and new sites popping up and becoming successful, spreads that customer base a bit too.
Well, an option to make more money is to add more eggs to your basket. With that, I mean split cam your online time while trying to earn money. Some Japanese webcam sites, have glitches, some have very low traffic or just depends on the day at hand. Another way to increase your money is to spit cam.
What exactly is split-camming? Split camming is using software that can split your camera that you are sending to a stream. Personally, the best software to download and yes you do have to purchase the software, it’s called Verysoft Webcam Splitter. It’s available for download and the purchase price is only $19.95. You really do not want to use the free software programs that are available, because it will usually leave a watermark and does not allow you the options you will need to properly cut your stream and split it among several webcam sites, especially if you’re using a 1080HD webcam. The other important thing is you do not want your cam quality to suffer because you chose a free splitter.
Let’s talk specs. A lot of girls will try split-camming with one webcam and a not so savvy machine. I learned this lesson myself. You need a good quality laptop or desktop that can handle a number of streams your splitting. I would recommend a gaming laptop and having at least 2 webcams if you especially want to work four or more japanese webcam sites simultaneously.
The Internet is a must also. If you are planning on split-camming, you must contact your internet service provider and request the highest package for upload speeds. Currently, I have a package of 100 Mbps download and 10 Mbps. This is crucial for split-camming. Your uploading not to just one Japanese cam site now, you are uploading data to over 3 to 4 camsites if not more. Without proper upload speeds, you cam will appear choppy and laggy. As you stream you want all your streams across each camsite, crystal clear, in HD, no lag time because you’re going to have a very hard time trying to earn money.
Another importance of split-camming is do not ever forget which sites you are working on at the same time. For example, if you’re working four sites at once and you get a paid chat, and you go into your private show, you need and must close out all the other sites you are currently logged onto. Do not make the mistake of forgetting to shut down a site, and give away a free show. Not only do you not want to give someone a free show, nudity may be against the rules in free chat and if you are doing that, you can initially get banned from another website, by not paying attention to all of your rooms you have at one time.
Let’s not forget what kind of webcam should I use. One of the most popular webcams, that I also personally use is the Logitech C920 HD webcam. I also use my older model that I use for splitting and I have phenomenal a result is the Logitech 9000 HD webcam. This is the webcam I use with Verysoft Webcam Splitter and never have had an issue. I get wonderful HD streaming, but I am also using a gaming laptop and have 10 Mbps for upload speeds. The technological end is very important. We already know as camgirls, we have to already be our own IT department, but this is a little more advanced, but with these tips you can be earning extra money on those slow days. The nice part about split-camming is you can make more money faster. I won’t deny it, most camsites frown upon split-camming, but for some of us, this is something we need to do. Cuts down on work hours, if we can work smarter and not harder, then why not.
For beginners, I would suggest start split-camming with just two Japanese cam sites at once. For example, use similar sites. If you’re new and have an account with Chaturbate and MyFreeCams, that would be a good idea to start. Keep your tip menu’s and your games and what not very similar. For example, make sure if your split-camming on both of these token sites. Both should be advertised as 30 tokens for ass and 50 tokens for boobs. This will also transition you into split-camming in the beginning, without becoming overwhelmed.
If you do not use token sites, you may want to split with paid show sites. For example, you can log on to Streamate and Cams.com at the same time. You can still use your tip menu’s on these sites as well. The only thing is if you’re on Streamate and use their encoder, you cannot splitcam with the SM Broadcaster, you can still splitcam with Adobe, for super clear HD. You can also splitcam the Adobe Broadcaster at the same time, you just need to open two windows. For the reason of the SM Broadcaster, this is one of the reasons I use 2 separate cams while I splitcam.
I hope these are some good simple suggestions, to get you set up if you are interested in splitting. Before you know it, it will be so simple and you will definitely be earning much more than you did prior, just being able to log into one site at a time. Keep those eggs in your basket and try new things to keep the cash rolling in.
