NextStranger is your source for meeting random people online!
How does it work?
Simple, really! With our service, you connect to another user who is also interested in having a fun chat. Your webcam and microphone are used for that face-to-face feeling, and you can also chat with the text box below. Just hit Enter to send your message!
What kinds of people will I meet here?
There are a lot of different kinds of people who use our service. They range from innocent to playful, all age ranges, differing interests...
Is this site moderated or filtered?
We believe in the value of free expression and privacy, and at no point are we moderating conversations. The technology used here is fully Peer to Peer, your conversation can only be seen by the participants. We do try to give you the highest quality matches possible.
I saw something offensive, what should I do?
Your best option is to click Next as early in the conversation as possible. These behavioural clues help us to determine who you don't want to talk to.
My webcam doesn't show up when I use your site
We use Flash technology to power the site, so your camera must be compatible with Flash. You may not be able to enable your camera in Privacy or Incognito modes, unless you have already enabled it in your regular browsing mode. You can tell Flash to always allow your
webcam at our site if you right-click one of the camera displays, choose Settings, and select the Camera tab. Make sure to hit both Allow and Remember.
What features will you be adding in the future?
We're in a state of constant improvement. Some things will be obvious, some will be behind the scenes. We encourage you to join our Beta program and get access to new features first!
Why does it say I'm connected to someone, but all I see is a black screen?
This can happen when there are network difficulties standing in the way of making a Peer to Peer connection. A certain level of connectivity is required by each participant in order to connect, so even if there is nothing on your end standing inthe way, you may still
see the occasional black screen. The author of the RTMFP protocol has a "Connectivity Checker" site which can show you how your connectivity looks here. If you see any Red lights on that page, you will have trouble with
any P2P connections, including random webcam chat sites.
