Many people ask us what a Russian webcam is; we are pretty sure they want to know what it looks like. We are equally sure that they want to know how it works and whether or not it works. There is no need to get too technical about this, the fact is that when you use a Russian webcam, you are essentially communicating through text between yourself and the person you are communicating with, which includes an image as well. The word Russian for camcorder doesn’t refer to the actual camcorder, but to any kind of recording device that uses that technology. In other words, you’re talking to a person via computer translates into text, which in turn is then converted into a digital signal and sent over the Internet.
