WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. — Flirt4Free is celebrating two decades of streaming live video chat.
The multi-award winning live cam site was founded by a group of young entrepreneurs just outside of Boston in early 1996. The company was founded on a mission that it still adheres to today, said Gregory Clayman, Flirt4Free’s president. This mission is to deliver the best live video chat product with the utmost in professionalism and business acumen.
Like its competitors at the time, Flirt4Free began by utilizing a point-to-point video software platform whereas customers had to download a client that allowed them to interact with the models who had a similar client installed on their computer, Clayman said.
In 1998, Flirt4Free headed west to California and at the same time it became one of the first live cam companies to convert its existing downloadable platform to a video streaming solution that required no special downloads or plugins, Clayman said.
This move paved the way for the company to be one of the first to offer such a live video streaming solution whereas it didn’t require any special downloads and plugins. In hindsight, this proved to be a strategic opportunity for the company prior to becoming the industry norm, Clayman said.
“Flirt4Free has continuously demonstrated that its main focus has been to stay true to its core competency, provide the end-user with the best technological experience in live camming while applying solid business ethics to its corporate endeavors,” he said.
“Flirt4Free has been able to utilize open source and proprietary technology which allows for customizable options built to accommodate even the most discerning webmaster and / or broadcaster. In its early years, some of the biggest names in adult entertainment made their live cam debuts on Flirt4Free, including Jenna Jameson, Tera Patrick, Ron Jeremy and the Vivid Girls along with male talent from Colt as well as the Falcon Family of Companies,” said Jamie Rodriguez, Flirt4Free’s director of broadcasting.
“Today the network boasts more than 100 million unique visitors to their chatrooms each month and maintains over 25,000 registered models and studios from around world,” Rodriguez said.
“Flirt4Free continues to focus on refining innovative services to meet consumer and performer’s needs and expectations,” Clayman said.
