Post Cam4bucks Move Adjustments

Over the last couple of weeks, there have been some major changes on CAM4, most notably bringing over everything relating to earnings and payouts to CAM4 from Cam4bucks.

The move was not bug-free, but the vast majority of the cases are now resolved and we’re still working hard with the performers who have remaining issues in order to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.

This included payment processing issues, incorrectly reported earnings, as well as issues with getting verified.

In a particular case, some tokens were incorrectly added to available earnings during the transition. While this was quickly noticed, some took advantage before we could intervene.

Upon finding the error those tokens were removed but as a portion of these tokens had already been used to tip, gift, or otherwise transferred, they also had to be removed from the accounts they had been transferred to.

For transparency purposes, we are marking these your Performer Dashboard under Insights > Adjustments.

We apologize for the inconvenience

CAM4 Pornhub Channel FAQ

What is the CAM4 Pornhub Channel?

CAM4 has partnered with Pornhub to create a channel featuring edited recordings of cam shows from some of the top performers on CAM4.

Who will be featured on the channel?

Performers who have given us permission to record and edit their cam shows may be featured on the channel.

What do performers get for being featured on the channel?

The goal of the CAM4 Pornhub Channel is to help performers grow their brand and their audience by showing edited previews of their shows to Pornhub viewers. If your video is featured on the official CAM4 Pornhub page, your CAM4 username will be clearly stated and linked, bringing more viewers and earnings to your live shows!

How do I give permission to have my shows featured?

Just contact us at video@cam4.com

Can videos of my shows be removed if I change my mind?

Absolutely. If at any time you want your content removed from the CAM4 channel on Pornhub, just send us a message and we will take it down.

Who will see the videos on the channel?

Viewers on Pornhub will be able to view the channel and any videos posted to it. Right now there is not a way to block countries from seeing specific videos on the channel.

Will the recording be used anywhere else?

These recordings will only be used for Pornhub. They will be watermarked with the CAM4 logo to prevent reproduction.

Will CAM4 keep the recordings?

The file sizes of recorded cam shows are huge and as result, so the original recordings will be deleted. The final videos we upload to Pornhub will all be stored in our secure database.

Who gets the ad revenue?

Ad revenue is not the goal of this partnership with Pornhub – our goal is to drive Pornhub’s traffic back to CAM4 and your profiles.

Can you tag my Pornhub profile or my Pornstar profile?

Absolutely. By tagging your profiles, your reputation will be increased even further, and more viewers will be able to find your page and your live shows. Don’t have a profile? We will work with you to add you to the database!

I’m planning to do something special in a show. What can I do?

Let us know! If you are planning something for a show (your birthday, or a holiday, anything!) send an email to this address video@cam4.com and let us know what you’ll be doing and when and we will try out best to schedule our recording engineer to record that show!

How to set up your Lovense toys

Lovense toys bring you and your audience even closer by allowing your viewers to control your toy through tipping.

The video guides below will walk you through the process of installing the Lovense extension into your Chrome (or Firefox) browsers. You’ll also need to download a Lovense app to either your IPad, IPhone, Tablet, or SmartPhone , or select your device here to download for your MAC or PC to complete the setup. 

This is a much better option than using the Lovense browser itself.
