The Webcam Wall
I updated my site recently and some people are upset that the old Neave Webcam section has changed. Sorry about that. Sadly I had to remove the video “wall” part as there were far too many people recording rude (and even hardcore pornographic) videos onto it.
The site is visited by people of all ages, but especially children. It was horrible to see videos of young kids right next to some old man getting his flappy bits out, or worse, some internet porn uploaded via the webcam. I really don’t want that kind of website, so it had to go. There were ways to ban people (I could track the IP address of videos and ban them) but this hardly ever worked reliably. And there was no way I could police the video wall 24/7 by myself.
So for the moment, Webcam Toy is its replacement. You can still play with the cool effects, but there’s no recording option. I plan to add more features to this new section soon so you can share your video clips on Facebook and Twitter and YouTube, and you’ll be able to take photos and download them to your computer too.
This isn’t ideal. I loved the way people interacted on the video wall. But it had to go. It was the same problem for Chat Roulette. Unfettered access to a webcam invariably involves rudeness!
I hope you understand my decision and are patient with me, and I hope you can enjoy the Webcam Toy effects until more features are added.
