Why Has Streamate Created The SMConnect?
For several years now Adobe has created several discussions on when they should officially kill off Flash. Many web browsers and streaming platforms have already made the proper adjustments for advancements with HTML5 in a post Flash era. Streamate a popular network partner within the Boleyn Models daily pay program has decided to join the club with the introduction of the SMConnect.
As we’ve previously have reported here on the BoleynModels blog, SMConnect is one of three streaming options for models on the Streamate platform. The other two are a mobile option provided by the Neon App. And the third option is the SMBroadcast. To further clear up the confusion surrounding streaming options, the SMConnect and the SMBroadcast should NOT be used simultaneously. It’s been discovered that using both streamers at the same time is leading cause for disconnections. This is why it’s so important that webcammodels pay close attention to the video below.
Ultimately the SMConnect will be the primary and the most recommended choice for streaming. The slow launch is most likely done in order to test the newer features piece by piece to ensure their tech team is on the right track.
