Camroulette Help

 
Welcome to the camroulette help page. We thought we'd put a few videos together, give you a bit of information and give you some advice on how to enjoy cam roulette a bit more. However, you probably need no help at all because this site is so easy to use.


What is Chatroulette / Camroulette?

The chatroulette or camroulette craze started in late 2009 with the development of the famous www.chatroulette.com. Hot on the heels many other copycat websites were set up like www.chatrandom.com, plus many other well known webcam sites like Omegle and Wocchat also started to set up their own versions of random chatting. Our www.camroulette.co.uk was set up in March 2010 so is one of the original sites of this kind. It was developed mainly to offer a cam roulette facility just to UK visitors and visitors that wanted to chat to mainly British people. It soon became popular all over the world. It also has a sister site in Germany called www.camroulette.de.
Check out these few videos, they'll give you a really good idea of what chat roulette is all about.
 
 


How to use the Camroulette


This site is like Chatroulette and provides a cam roulette software that swaps through webcams randomly with the hope of finding someone interesting to camchat to.

There are no forms of registration and it is always completely free. People from all over the world use this site. However, depending on the volumes of traffic we may restrict it to only UK people.

When you are ready to start your camroulette, click on "Start Now" to get connected. If you would like to change the language on our software, select the "options" button and choose from: english; français; español; deutsch; português; русский; lietuvių kalba.

Start by making sure your webcam is connected to your computer and on. Then open camroulette.co.uk. When you click the Start button, a little window will pop up (Flash Player Settings) asking you to enable your webcam. By clicking “allow" you are enabling your webcam, by clicking "deny" you are disabling your webcam. Our chatroulette software will work with or without a webcam connected, but it may be difficult to start a chat with no cam.

It may seem like there are a lot of men just like on all chatroulette sites, but there are lots of women, and the evidence suggests that more and more women are joining the chatroulette fun. However, you can expect to see anything. Get the chatroulette on and expect to see the unexpected - don't get offended if you see something you don't like, just click "Buzz". You never know who or what you are going to meet. Again everything's improving and chatroulette is generally getting more civilised than in the early days of chatroulette.com.

The top screen shows your cam roulette partner (if they have no webcam or it is not enabled their screen will be blank). The bottom screen shows yourself (this is what your chatroulette partner sees).

If you feel your someone does something offensive or inappropriate (or you see something inappropriate) just click the report button. Also, sometimes after your chatroulette has finished, a pop up may ask you to give a rating - click the appropriate.

Quotes

Check out these quotes about the chatroulette craze:


The Independent says:

"Chat Roulette" (that's Chatroulette.com, people) has seen its user numbers shoot up to more than 10,000 from less than 500 at the turn of the year. The premise is utterly straightforward. Like some bastard child of Skype and StumbleUpon, Chat Roulette drops you into a face-to-face conversation, via your webcam, with one random stranger after another, at the click of a mouse.

The Times says:

Whether it's voyeurism, curiosity, collective boredom or a little bit of each, there's something strangely addictive about . . . . .

The Guardian says:

Even the places on the web where oversharing is part of the game - Facebook, Twitter, blogs - are largely confined within an agreed social circle, which is one reason it still makes news when somebody gets fired for mistakenly publishing what they think of their boss online.

By comparison Chatroulette, with its random scattering of people, seems to recapture the feeling of being on some strange, uncontrollable frontier.

I say:

After years of continuing order and progress with the internet and websites, finally there is a new phenomenon that brings a little chaos, that's what you get with sites like Chatroulette.com and similar sites like ours.
