TroubleShoot HTML5 and WebRTC Streaming in VideoWhisper

These refer to issue that may occur after VideoWhisper solution was configured correctly, tested and running.
If you don’t have it installed, yet get a plan for a turnkey solution, in example for HTML5 Videochat .

 

  •  Video pixelation, low quality:

    Check selected streaming resolution & bitrate and also real streaming bitrate measurements (available in HTML5 Videochat app  ).
    WebRTC also adapts quality depending on available connection and network conditions for UDP. Measure your connection and also try RTMP TCP broadcasting with OBS or other encoders, as mentioned below.

  • Broadcaster streaming interruptions, frequent errors, slow website while streaming:

    Some broadcasters may experience issues due to their internet connection speed, location (very far from streaming server). Having a lower connection requires adjusting maximum streaming bitrate, so it doesn’t consume all available bandwidth.

    Do a speed test from broadcasting location to a location near streaming server.
    1. Go to https://www.speedtest.net .
    2. Change Server and search for a server in Beauharnois (North America).
    3. Press GO to start measurement.
    3. Get measurement link from top left icon and share with our staff.
    Broadcaster upload connection needs to handle video + audio stream and also other interactions and web requests.

  •  Connection to sever is high and streaming quality is low and with interruptions, although configured high bitrate in settings:

    Check live bitrate stats in HTML5 Videochat app. If connection bitrate is high and live streaming bitrate is lower than configured, issue could be related to network conditions and WebRTC protocol streaming over UDP.
    For higher quality and reliability, broadcasting is possible using a RTMP TCP app like OBS for desktop or GoCoder mobile, directly to streaming server without depending on web browser. RTMP stream is delivered to site users as HTML5 HLS.

  • Broadcaster getting browser streaming failure error, Retry message, permission errors, camera not available in list:

    Make sure you are loading site over HTTPS (required to publish camera).
    Test with a different browser: Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Safari.
    Try the Brave browser (Chrome privacy focused fork).

  • Intermittent connection issues associated with slow site or intermittent 503 web errors.
    Web hosting resources may be underpowered for site complexity and load.
    Try reducing complexity (by removing plugins) and resource load per request or upgrade to a higher plan from HTML5 WebRTC Relay Hosting .
  • Broadcasting stream not connecting or disconnects:
    Check if bitrate (video + audio) is within plan hosting limits. Trying to broadcast higher bitrate will result in automated stream rejection and short cooldown while all connection attempts are rejected.
    See Client Upload (kbps) for your plan at HTML5 WebRTC Relay Hosting and configure lower.

How To Get Users For Your Adult Webcam Models Site

The most important thing on a webcam site is models.
Models create content and bring customers. Good models have a large fan base, big social media accounts and can bring a lot of users (fans willing to pay and their model friends).

Where to find models? 
You can find models on social media and big cam sites.

How to bring models to your site?

  • On a new site just pay models for promotion: setup a profile on your site, some pictures, videos,  get online and do some free live shows on a specific schedule.
  • Offer them good deals and incentives.

Adult friendly social media platforms:

Non adult social media platforms:

How to spot potential models?
Review their content, number of followers and engagement.

Find professional models on big cam sites and amateur adult video sites like LiveJasmin, Chaturbate, PornHub, MyFreeCams.
Warning: Recruiting models from other sites and sending business offers in group chat, comments may be against site policy.
To get taken seriously by big models and not get reported, you need to get their paid private shows, tip big and introduce your business offer privately.
