Group video meetings on ning

Can you host group video meetings through your ning network, ie something like google hangouts. I see there is Opentok but then this gives the following message

'TokBox will stop supporting the Ning app as of mid-November. We longer have the resources available to the project. Thank you for choosing to use our OpenTok platform. You can install one of our plug'n'play applications yourself to continue using video chat in your network.'

Which may mean something to the person that wrote it but to me is a meaningless statement, can anyone explain.

And then of course the final question is........'so when are ning developing and integrating video chat into their networks' - I'll pay for it and I'm sure others would too.

  • They said that they do not pretend to developing a video chat, but we have a new option for video with Cometchat.

  • Dear John, I have uninstalled the Opentok app as they won't support it anymore, but have created a simple page where I embedded the HTML code for a group chat room. You find this code under the "plug'n'play" link you posted- group chat embed.

    Here is how it looks on our site:

    Hope this helps. I think Cometchat is a payed service, but Opentok is free.
