    Duh, SM isn't even trying these days. Guess we're supposed to bring our own traffic now.

    I'm trying to remember when all these glitches started happening. I've been off and on SM for 5 years now and I know before the encoders came out, I had no streaming issues but after they were released, I feel like I always had a messed up stream. Has it been going on for years now or does it just feel that long to me?

    I've been on for 5 years and it seems the site is fucked up more than it works. When it works it's GREAT. But waiting for it to work is just a huge colossal waste of time.

    Those of you that are also having problems with their bitrate dropping, is it changing at all, like going back up some and then dropping again like it did the last time there was a problem? Or has it just dropped and stayed there without changing?

    Like with mine right now, it was 1472 and has dropped to 122 and is NOT going back up at all, its just staying right there!
    Last time when there was a problem with bitrate it would bounce up and down but not this time I tried resetting my modem but didn't change anything and now my placement is FUCKED. I was on front page around middle and now I am at the top of the second page and barely getting anyone in my room

    Pretty much. If I have to get my own traffic than I'm sending it to LCMS & getting 85%.It's absurd for SM to expect us to do the work that's entailed with indie & get none of the benefits.

I have allowed flash plugin in browser. Is there anything else I can try?

    If Flash isn't working on any of the browsers its probably your computer. If you didn't restart your computer after reinstalling and installing try restarting. If your computer was working fine until now try restoring it to a day or two before you started having problems.

    I started camming in 2007. SM was my first site and it worked absolutely fine then. Glitches didn't start until they started upgrading everything...i.e. introducing the flash encoder and making models upgrade our computers, cam and internet to Nasa shit lol. More glitches started happening once they introduced Goldshows...or should I say Party Chat since that's what it was called then.

    Funny how back then they said they were having server issues and were upgrading. Now flash forward to 2017 and there's still issues even though we've spent mad money on tech they said we needed. Personally I don't think they ever upgraded the servers when they said they did. I think they told models to get i7 computers to take the load and $$$ off of them so that they wouldn't have to upgrade. Like how could you have upgraded your servers back then(I think it was 2013 that they said that) yet there's still disconnects, lagging, freezing, pixelated streams, etc afterwards. Some issues have been fixed but its been years of alot of the same issues. Like literally girls were being disconnected and thrown out of "Party Chat/Goldshow" back then and its still happening now. I can list about 5 issues off of my head that ladies were complaining about then that are still happening now.

    Hey ladies...my gf is trying to stream live on streamate without encoders (just the HD High click down option) and a pop up keeps coming up saying connection lost (with options of retry, troubleshoot, and cancel). My internet is super strong (had spectrum come out and even test everything). My pc meets all the specs. New modem. Thanks ladies!

    There are 4 different HD options, I'd try all of them to see if any of them work. If none work try restarting your computer and maybe different browsers. Also if you're using wifi try connecting to the modem via Ethernet cable.

    I think you are right, Blovely. I dont think they upgraded servers. Maybe they upgraded other things. The space they have on their servers is not capable of sustaining this HD for all the models, all the time, constantly. I have no clue, but I suspect updating to more powerful, more space servers would cost them a fortune. I dont think they did it.

    Spring 2015 is when it started for me & has gotten progressively worse. At that time I believe that was before it spread to everyone else (including top row models, every other page models) . At first I thought maybe it was time to call it quits and that I wasn't poppin like I thought i was. I actually put in the hours & effort to make what I was making and like magic my traffic went from decent to almost nonexistent over the course of a month and stayed that way. My last decent check was April 2015. I cammed full time from when I started up until last winter. It's unbearable to cam on that platform most days now. I still log on a few days per week but anything beyond that is a nitemare and stroke waiting to happen. And as others have mentioned, it's important to have other eggs in our baskets (clips, text/phone,Skype etc) .. I'm sure I'm not alone but the first 1 1/2 years on SM for me I only did SM so once things changed I was in for a rude awakening. When bad shifts outweighed the good shifts is when I learned the importance of having multiple eggs (hustles). We all have different daily goals and quotas so the amount it affects one model may make the world of difference to the next...

    Maybe girls like me are just getting weeded out. Almost never fails when my guys are dislodged from my free chat - in the rare instance they do come back they say "wow that's weird I was talking to you and ended up in another models room" can't tell you how many times in a month guys reach out to me on social networking platforms like hey I was trying to get a show but kept getting booted into another models room and of course I ask questions after it's happened countless times cause eventually you begin to wonder ... when I ask which model it's almost always a studio girls room he ended up in. We're just chess pieces on the playing board anyways... And with SM 0 communication it's easy to have theories of what you think is going on *shrugs* (chucks another egg in basket)

    Let's see.. I have been on sm since 2009 and other cam sites since 2003... so whenever I seem to be having a good week.. here comes a bad day, this is the first good week I have had in awhile and yesterday? I made .70.. not one tip, not one private. NOTHING.. I have noticed I am only ALLOWED to make a certain amount of money and then I struggle to make more .. it's very strange isn't it? In my case I work on 10 cam sites so my upper limit that I am allowed to make is only $700 a week.. that's about it.. I could work more hours.. charge less, be more charming.. but there will always be a few days peppered with a few bucks for the day and no more to make sure I don't make more.. I don't belive I conjured this up in my head.. I am privy to knowing that sites control how much models make..

    I have a confirmation for one part of your theory: I've totally had people tell me they were trying to get to someone else's room but ended up in mine somehow. I'm not with a studio, however, neither am I a porn star or a top earner on SM. More than that, I'm a niche model and don't really want any guys in my room who aren't into that specific fetish. So my guess is SM got nothing against you, they just fucked their shit up again.

    Any theories? - yesterday was REALLY busy for me, lots of traffic, decent amount of spenders. I log in today and theres barely any traffic and zero spenders.

    WHY? I dont get it.

    Yesterday I made double my daily goal, is there some kind of earnings cap? Like do they see you doing good and chuck you on a shit server or something like that, when you earn over a specific amount? That's what it feels like, its so maddening.
