jktdec710, that page also says, "Next scheduled show: There is no scheduled show at this time. Please check back regularly for updates!" - maybe you missed that?
As it says, it's in beta, we're still testing. We have tested a few times now, and we're getting closer. In the next few days, there'll be another test (with our Customer Support guy, Brent, fully clothed). if it's working after that, we'll schedule a model, if not, we'll make more fixes, then test again. As soon as it's working well, we'll have a schedule of models you can see on the page.
Lona, thanks for letting us know. I'll be in contact when the tech stuff is working reliably!
Anyone would think cam shows were the cutting edge of the Internet rather than something that requires only a laptop, a webcam and Internet connection. If Abby Winters management team were running youtube it would be a small niche site with a handful of users. Maybe it's time to stop trying to reinvent the wheel, invest in some off the shelf software and either get cam shows working or just drop the idea? Much though i would pay to see Noa, for example, in a video every week, AW needs to focus on recruiting new models rather than trying to be a software development house. Not that it's too successful at that either it would seem.
In fact, we approached several adult cam companies to provide this service, and none of them wanted to provide it to us (but they were happy to sell us their cam FEEDS, of their models, which of course is not what we want).
Like you, I figured camming was a solved problem, a commodity service, but it turns out that's not actually the case yet. We did use several existing libraries to develop our implementation, which reduced development time a lot, but there's still a lot of "connecting" to do, and that's imperfect. Hence the beta label.
Rest assured, our developers are not responsible for recruiting models, so nothing is being taken away in that dept.
I tried My Free Cams after a girl here recommended it. I now have no money in my account. They are the worst site Ive ever been on. The girls get you to pay 20 dollars to get their top off for five min. That site has made me cancel my credit card. Not good for AW.
Happysteve, sorry to hear you had a bad experience. I have heard good things about myfreecams, but I guess it depends on what you expect, and which models you select. If you've still got money on your account, you may as well spend it trying a different model?
