As the number of active users grew, Ternovskiy has had to rewrite the entire code to cope with the load, the management of which being the most challenging part of his project.
Despite the expansion of the service, he still codes everything on his own.
Chatroulette is an online chat website that pairs random users together for webcam-based conversations.
If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page. Camfrog Video Chat sounds innocent enough and generally it is, although its a bit disconcerting when it asks you for your marital status as mandatory during registration.
The Camfrog Video Chat interface is similar to that of an IM client with contacts listed down the right hand and a messaging box along the bottom.
When you log in, you're asked whether you want to join the main Camfrog Video Chat room or a specific room such as Latino, Learn English, Single and a special room for those using sign language.
When you log into a Camfrog forum room, the rules are made clear - "No disturbing the room with repeated text or spamming" and "No nudity or asking others to get nude", for example. Because there are several people all communicating at once, all you see is a flurry of random messages between users.
It's much nicer to meet people "face-to-face" in this way rather than just chatting to them anonymously.
It would be good to be able to expand the size of the video, but this is only available in the pro version. The overall Camfrog Video Chat interface looks a bit dated.
1 in 8 spins yielded someone apparently naked, exposing themselves or engaging in a sexual act.
A user was twice as likely to encounter a sign requesting female nudity than to encounter actual female nudity.
There are plenty of people online and Camfrog Video Chat has a lot of potential as a group collaboration tool.
