They say the adult industry generally leads the way with new technology and CamSoda [NSFW LINK], an NSFW cam site, is no exception. The site, which connects models in various undressing states with viewers in similar undressing states, now supports WebRTC transmission, allowing cammers and viewers to broadcast via a mobile phone.
The mission is simple: CamSoda wants to allow artists to take their viewers with them in their daily activities.
“At CamSoda, we are committed to developing a mobile friendly website that is easy to use by our models and users. Now, with our WebRTC mobile broadcaster, models can broadcast their lives on the go. They don’t have to log out when they leave their room; instead, they can take their fans with them on their day, ”said Daryn Parker, vice president of CamSoda. “Models can stream from their mobile devices (iOS + Android) anywhere. They are no longer strictly attached to their rooms. They are free to explore the world around them and to take their fans with them. “
This technology is important because Apple and Android do not allow sites like CamSoda to offer native apps. This means they have to use tools like WebRTC – or Web Real-Time Communication – to get around these restrictions.
CamSoda has also locked down the service to ensure adequate security.
“WebRTC includes native features that address many of these security concerns. Malware can be bundled with plugin downloads, but WebRTC application users do not need to download plugins. The underlying components that enable real-time communications run in the browser’s sandbox and are updated automatically when the browser updates. With WebRTC applications, the end user must grant explicit permission before the browser is allowed to access their local devices. Additionally, when the camera and / or microphone is active, the browser will display an “active” indicator, typically found in the browser tab. WebRTC security measures ensure that media is automatically encrypted, ”Parker said. In short, models and viewers are protected thanks to this new protocol.
While this type of live streaming is common for social media services and other “family” applications, it is quite rare for services like CamSoda. These sites typically require the interpreter to be in front of a computer and webcam, and rarely, if ever, support mobile viewing. CamSoda is also working with cammers to offer something called LifeStream, a way to stream 24/7 to beloved fans.
