It would be nice to have threads for everyone that can't get into model's only to get information on how to cam on Streamate more effectively.
So here we are!
Share any information about camming on Streamate.com or ask questions related to camming on SM here!

Important links of note:

https://www.camgirlwiki.com/wiki/Streamate <this wiki has tons of info from wonderful women on this forum, please read it thoroughly!
https://twitter.com/StreamateModels <this is Vanessa, the in house recruiter. You should, if at all possible, sign up under her if you can. She isn't a studio, and doesn't take any money from you.
http://streamaterecruiting.com/ <This is the site that Vanessa uses to recruit. Use the form there to sign up. It is NOT a studio and is the same as joining directly from streamate.com, except Vanessa can answer questions in a pinch if you've exhausted all other avenues and still need a question answered.

Models, please add anything of note and feel free to ask questions!

@Catalina SM question!

when i use the snapshot feature, it doesnt save the photo? i took a snapshot that i wanted to set as my biopic and its nowhere to be found after i ended my stream. am i not looking in the right place or has it disappeared?
Hi,

So the snapshot is showed only when you are online, as profile photo. When you go offline, it will show the static biopic you submitted previously on your account.

thank you! so if i understand this correctly, its not saved in your photos at all and when you stop streaming it will revert back to your static biopic? what if you get disconnected and you want to use the same pic you took prior to streaming? or in my case, decide i prefer the snapshot i took over my current static biopic. or maybe able to display those pictures to our photo gallery if we choose to.

Yes, exactly! We keep on developing this tool further, but it's correct what you understood. The snapshot is not saved somewhere on your profile, it stays for 24h on your account and for the next streaming, you have to take a new, fresh snapshot. While you are offline, it will be displayed the static photo you uploaded.

it would be super neat if we would be able to save past snapshots to saved to be displayed in our photo gallery or use past snapshot images for static. also do not like the new change where we have to use the snapshot no matter what. i can only speak for myself, but there are days where i dont feel like taking a picture of myself.

What's the deal with certain models having upside-down video? Doesn't happen in the thumbnail previews.
Do you refer to the recorded videos from the gallery, or the live streaming? Can you share a screenshot with me?

What's the number-one reason that people who use Streammate decide it's worth their time to do so? I'm open to it but I already have MFC and am going to get CB soon ... I'm just wondering whether it's really worth it to try to juggle three at once

My number 1 reason, the ease of money! If a member wants any type of below the waist nudity or wants a specific request from me, they HAVE to pay for it.
I'm on MFC as well but I use that site as my chill out and chit chat site where I can goof off and not be as serious, so I don't really expect to make as much money from MFC like I do with Streamate.

Oh wow, ok thank you Rylaro! I didn't realize that.

It's got great traffic. The charge back protection is wonderful. No below the belt nudity in free chat. Don't have to deal with pesky PMs. You can get away with charging higher rates. Spend less hours online to make goals.

Very interesting ... does the traffic on SM tend to come from outside the US? Is it focused in a particular geographic area? Also, if you don't mind sharing, do you focus solely on SM or do you split your time between other sites as well?

im not sure if it does or doesn't but pornhub's network does have streamate whitelabels and an overall very good affiliate program. they also do priority placing if a member matches the same region as you. so if a member is from the EU, he will see mostly EU models in the placement.

i am camming solely on sm. i used to split my time between them and other sites or broadcast simultaneously when i was new. with streamate it's against the rules split stream, so i would use two separate webcams. the reason i don't anymore is that i earned a lot more in comparison. so i devote most of my time to streamate while still side hustling here and there on onlyfans.

No below the belt nudity in free chat.

This is my #1 reason too! I hated putting on a show on MFC knowing freeloaders got to see the same thing the customers who paid see. And this goes for everything else, not just nudity. I hated that they get to see anything at all without paying. The most they see on SM for free is me sitting there and maybe my feet or me standing up if someone tips for it.

I knew it would happen at some point, but after three/four weeks of camming on Streamate someone I know (male), has just sent me a link to a recorded video of me taken by a customer on Streamate. It is all over porn sites already lol, and I am very distinctive looking. From what I gather, there really is little chance of me ever fully getting rid of videos of me working as a cam girl, so I am not going out of my way to fill out DCMA (?) forms and stress out about it; it just isn't worth it. I have read that they just get reposted etc. Unless anyone on here thinks it is worth starting that fight?

However, I now know I can't return to teaching after covid is done if my videos are so easily found. That is a shame but camming has kept food on my table during a pandemic when I lost my job, so in the grand scheme of things, there is no point crying over spilt milk. I am almost 40 anyway and had quite a challenging life thus far....this is just one more interesting chapter in my book lol.

My family and friends all know I do this too- I am not afriad of being outed.

I guess I am wondering what your responses have been when this has happened to you?

I have been camming on a UK site for 18 months already and due to their anti pirating and copying software, have never found any videos of me in that time, and still cannot (yay Adult Work), but I am amazed at just how quickly I have joined Streamate and up the videos pop! I even know who the customer is who I was camming with and he's actually a sound guy.

Should I just see this as great free advertising?

sorry this happened.

some sites do remove videos. its the scummy ones that dont. ask streamate to send a dmca. they will request the takedown so you dont have to fill it out. streamate allows their affiliates to record shows and post them. i wish they didn't and would hold them to a higher standard.

i personally see it as free advertising and weeds out the people who would never pay for a camshow so they dont bug me.

It really sucks that it happens. Viewing it as free advertisement is the best way to go.

I have emailed support and Liz this morning with the 4 links in total to sites where I have found my videos. Other than requesting them be removed, I am not going to worry too much, and see the positives of it all :). Thanks so much for your help!
