Cam-splitting, how does it work?
Cam-splitting, or webcam sharing, involves broadcasting your webcam images on multiple sites at the same time. The appeal is easy to find: the more you multiply your visibility, the more you increase your income. And it works without spending any extra time in front of your webcam.
To do this, you need to install a specific software that will take care of duplicating your webcam stream to send it back to the different platforms you use. It is extremely simple.
What software to use?
There is a multitude of software to perform this function. We have listed a few that are the most widely used and easiest to use.
Note that most of these software have other functions such as watermarking your video. This is a great feature if you want to create a community, a brand, around your videos.

What are the things to check out?
Allowing cam-splitting by platforms
The first point to check is the authorization of this type of practice by the platforms you want to use. Indeed, it happens that some of them ban the use of this software. You then risk having your account closed. This is therefore a point not to be neglected.
You will find below a list of platforms that allow cam-splitting. This list is not exhaustive and we can only advise you to check this point on the sites of your platforms.
When using multiple platforms at the same time, your computer will send the video stream to as many sites as you choose. So it’s easy to understand that the upload speed (uplaod) of your internet connection might become limiting. Your viewers may then see the video quality decrease, or even freeze images. It’s up to you to limit the number of sites on which you broadcast your cam so as not to encounter this problem.
A good organization is necessary
Of course, producing yourself at the same time on several sites is going to require rigorous organization. It’s up to you to keep your profile and your availability schedule on each site up to date. But above all, you will have to juggle with the different chat rooms during the shows. Not easy at the beginning but with a little bit of practice it’s done very well.
