As far as I’m aware Chatville’s rise in terms of popularity is a somewhat recent phenomenon. A little further research seems to lead me to believe that it may have used to have been some sort of Facebook app before shifting to what it has become today, although I’m not entirely sure. Anyway, now it has become an adult-oriented webcam chat site, and it provides some pretty solid software to back this up. As soon as you load the page you will see a listing of all the available chat rooms, and at least three will have 100-200 users in them, so there are definitely plenty of people available at any given time. However, there is not a Chatroulette-style option as far as I can tell, so if you’re looking for that you will have to go elsewhere.
Once you’ve joined a room you will see a few interesting features. One of the main great features is the ability to watch not one, not two, not three, but four separate live cam feeds at the same time! You can see which feeds are the most popular too if you need help choosing – it shows you exactly how many people are watching each feed. Although, you can start your own live video channel and try to drive up your own viewership! Overall, the software seems to run smoothly so they must have a pretty decent server behind the scenes. Anyway, if you like what you’re hearing, you can check them out at www.chatville.com.
