The MyFreeCams.com mobile-friendly site, designed for phones and tablets, is located at: http://m.myfreecams.com. It is the closest thing to a MyFreeCams Mobile App.

M.MyFreeCams.com

To access the mobile site, go to http://m.myfreecams.com on your phone or tablet. It works particularly well on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.

Mobile Feeds

Models with a Mobile Feed

Models that select the "HD" video setting in their broadcasting software will have a live mobile feed on the mobile site.

When a model has a mobile feed available, the user watching the model will have a choice:

  1. Watch the live mobile feed with full streaming video and audio.
  2. Watch a fast image slideshow with the option to play audio separately in the background.

The user can change this setting by clicking a button above the chat room to switch to "Slide Show" or "Live Feed".

Note: On the iPhone, the live mobile feed takes up the whole screen automatically which does not allow access to the chat room at the same time. Therefore, by default we display the fast slideshow but you can switch to the mobile feed using a button above the chat.

Models without a Mobile Feed

Models that are broadcasting in the older standard video setting (not "HD") will not have a mobile feed.

The feed will be a slow slideshow of images, refreshing once every 30 seconds or so, with no audio.

Video Delay

Unfortunately, due to current limitations within Apple iOS and Android, there is a 30 second delay/latency with the mobile live video streaming. Therefore, you will find that the mobile chat room is real time while the video is approximately 30 seconds delayed. As soon as the technology exists to minimize or eliminate this latency, we will implement it immediately.

  • Chat: Real-time.
  • Mobile Live Feed: 30-40 second delayed behind chat.
  • Slideshow with HD feed: 3-5 second delay behind chat.
  • Slideshow with old system: 3-5 second delay, but refreshes only every 30 seconds.
  • Audio from Slideshow: 30-40 second delayed behind chat.
