Number of Web Cam Hosts
On LiveCamGuru.com you can find at least 200 chat rooms available online, even if you log on at not-so-busy times. Peak hours will feature even 300 or more hosts, which is a nice number to select from. The quality of shows here varies quite a lot, but there are enough live webcams to ensure that you will find the right one.
All public shows are free and you can watch for as long as you like even before you sign up. Tipping is of course advised. You can sit back and hope that other users will tip, but then you will have no saying whatsoever in what will happen on the show. There are also private chats that obviously cost a bit, but I they start at 6 tokens per minute and can go up to 90. The site also allows users to earn tokens by broadcasting their own web camera feeds.

Types of Memberships and Benefits
As a visitor AKA unregistered guest, you can participate in all of the public chats on LiveCamGuru.com but you won't be able to tip and a s a result, you won’t get much attention. If you do choose to join the site there are 2 types of memberships and I will list their details below.
This free membership is actually pretty awesome and I think that for most of my reade4rs it will be quite sufficient with no need for an upgrade.Cost to Join: Free.
Information Required: User name, email, Password.
- Unlimited Access to free public shows
- Text chat
- Browse members’ galleries when available
- Use the basic videochat features
- Broadcast your own feed, if you want, and get paid
- Use the member message boards
Yes, I know, it's a bit of a unusual name for an upgraded membership, but LiveCamGuru apparently doesn’t want to imply that it has any paid membership so it calls this option "becoming a supporter". Nevertheless, an upgrade is exactly what it is and it buys you access to advanced features and benefits.
Cost to join: $19.95 per month
Information required: CC number, but only if you've never purchased tokens before.
All those given to standard members PLUS:
- Receive 200 tokens for FREE ($20.99 value)
- Remove all ads
- Watch shows on full screen
- Send private messages
- Customizable chat interface
- Anonymous tipping
Most of the webcam hosts allow users to join their fan club with include some nice benefits. As a fan you can send private messages to the host, even if you are not a supporter, you can access any locked videos and photos and get highlighted in the public chat room, so everyone knows you're a fan. Cost is between $5.99 and $$20.99 per month and that's quite a difference.
LiveCamGuru.com isn’t big on special features, but you will find all the basic ones ready to use. Nothing here is out of the ordinary, but nothing is missing either and you can enjoy Cam2Cam, audio, etc. I will mention a few features that stood out but these are mostly user features for general enjoyment on the site and not video chat tools.
- Message Board – If you like to socialize, feel free to join the conversation
- Watch several chat rooms simultaneously
- See how many people are in the same live chat room
- Find out who else is watching the same show
The profile pages are created by each host, which does give them a nice amateur-like appeal, but the problem is that too many of them are not just half empty. Very often you will find no useful information, but they do have links to everything you need such as the host's fan club, bio and some other basic details, like their schedules plus, this is where you will find all the content you can unlock for certain amounts or by becoming a member of their fan club.
If you click on Support, it immediately launches your mail client, meaning you can send them an email.
You can certainly gather some information when you click on My profile or Get more tokens, but there is no dedicated FAQ page.
