It doesn’t matter if you are new to the business or that you have been a webcam model for a long time, with split camming you can earn a lot of extra money with essentially the same show. 

What is this split camming? Splitcamming allows you to stream your show to different webcam platforms at the same time. This means of course, that you could generate much more income than when streaming on just one webcam platform. 

To be able to split cam, you will have to use  split cam software. Without the splitcam software you would have to use a different webcam for each webcam platform, which is very inconvenient. Of course it is interesting to know which pros and which cons split cam brings and which split cam software you can best use to achieve your goal, which is to make more money. This article will discuss this in more detail.

Splitcam software

You may wonder what exactly is meant by splitcam software and how it works. Splitcam software is a virtual video capture driver, which makes it possible to distribute a video stream over multiple webcam platforms. In other words, the software can give you two or more different images at the same time. The software itself is very easy to use. You need to install the software on your computer or laptop and set which video source should be used. You can set every program that uses your video source to use the splitcam as the source. Your computer will then see that several independent video sources are available. You can then safely leave the rest to your computer to do the work of split camming. 

Advantages and disadvantages Split camming

Split camming is the ideal solution if you plan to work on multiple webcam platforms. You don't have to use a different webcam for each platform. However, it is important to check for yourself whether this form of webcam modeling is right for you. In most cases, if you have a good overview of the different webcam platforms where you are active and you can give every fan and visitor some attention, you can make a lot of money. If you want to use splitcam software, you should also check for yourself whether the webcam platforms where you operate allow this. You don't want your account deleted because customers are complaining that you don't spend time on them, especially if they have paid.

It is therefore highly recommended to use this form of webcam modeling, if you already have some experience as a webcam model. It is important that you first have to know how a certain platform works and how you should deal with customers. It is therefore not advisable to use split camming on your first day of webcamming, because you will not be able to give customers the attention they need. This will ultimately lead to less income, which is precisely not your goal with split camming.

However, if you are a bit more experienced and you know the tricks of the trade, splitcam software is certainly a good option. You can then cam on multiple webcam platforms and serve multiple customers at the same time. 

It is a slow day..

If you are online and it is a bit quiet on your main platform, then a second or third platform is a solution to look for more customers. Being on three platforms at the same time, will increase the chance that you will get "visitors". If you don’t have much experience yet or if you don’t want to focus on all the sites, you could of course, if you get customers on one, switch off the others "temporarily" so that you have enough time for all your fans.

Two screens

If you plan to install the splitcam software on your PC, it is advisable to use two screens for your webcam show. This makes working on different webcam platforms less chaotic. You do not have to always close one window to see the other or make it really small so that it fits next to each other. You can easily connect a second screen to your computer using an HDMI or DVI cable. Windows will automatically recognize a new screen and then you can choose from the several options. It is advisable to see what works best for you. If you do not immediately have money for a new external screen, you can also temporarily use your TV, provided it has an HDMI connection. 

What do you need to be able to split cam

In addition to the installation of the split cam software, there are a few other things that are important for optimal split camming. First you need at least a windows 10 with a minimum intelcore of i3 or faster. In addition, your computer needs a RAM memory of at least 2GB or more. (but you probably already have this) Your internet speed also plays a very important role in this. Especially if you broadcast HD quality, it is very important that your internet is fast. You need a minimum upload speed of 4 Mbps. If you meet the minimum preconditions, you can make use of split cams. Purchasing a better computer and faster internet is of course highly recommended. (more streams means you need a faster computer and internet)

Types of Splitcam software

If you plan to use the splitcam software, you will find that there are several software programs that you can purchase. Some programs are even free to use, but keep in mind that a lot of these free programs will have specific restrictions. It is important that you use a reliable software because it is ultimately about your income. You don’t want to start broadcasting in sub HD or that your stream shows some kind of watermark. After all, as a webcam model you want to broadcast the best possible image/ video to get more customers and to be placed higher on the website.

The free software that most webcam models use is OBS (read here for some more info) with a splitter plug in or Visit-X Video Splitter and paid software like Splitcam, Streamster.io and Webcam Splitter Pro. These programs offer you the possibility to broadcast in HD and without a watermark to multiple sites. 

Turn off private chats

If you don't have much experience as a webcam model yet, but would like to use split cams to generate more income, you also have the option to turn off private chats. That way you have a little more time for the rest of your viewers. However, split camming remains a challenge for beginners. Your customers are also often active on multiple sites, so they are easily gone if you do not give them enough attention.  The result could be (and you should be aware of that) is that you can drop in ranking. 

Finally

If you meet the preconditions as indicated in the article, you could make optimal use of split cams. With this form of webcam modeling you can generate a lot of money, especially if you have some experience as a webcam model. New webcam models will have to commit a little more if they want to start modeling on multiple webcam platforms from the start. All in all, split camming could be the ideal solution to make the most of multiple webcam platforms.

Hello, My question is about broadcasting to multiple sites. 1. Do Lovense toys work when you are logged on to multiple sites and does that get a bit confusing or out of control? 2. Do you still post or play the games that sites offer to accumulate tokens? Broadcasting on multiple sites seems complicated. I am thinking about using Streamster.io. I'm just not sure how to keep the customers happy while leveraging multiple sites. I have not had success in finding information from cam models already utilizing Streamster.io or another similar broadcasting provider to broadcast to multiple sites simultaneously and manage the process successfully. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated! Thank you, Sophia

I have an i7 computer with 16GB of ram. My webcam is a Logitech bcc. I was unable to connect to F4F and Streamate at the same time, my image freezes. I'm sad that I like them both and I end up not dedicating myself to either.

Great article! For those of us in the USA internet speed can be v problematic, more of a problem with the pandemic, more people working from and overall, online more. SM for example, sucks up band width, great site but overall, onot friendly to split camming. I live in a semi rural area, the i ternet providers stated speeds are not reality!
