Hey, Austin. One thing to consider is that they have kind of moved away from offering a service like we do. I don't think you'll see any pricing on their site (for a reason). Have you tried the Tokbox app yet? You may have, but it's worth checking out if you haven't. Here's my and two of my colleagues video chatting with it:
I for one would love to be able to integrate userplane webchat one would think we could be able to do this w/ the Ning API
I think my preferred solution will be to try and integrate Google+ into my Ning Network.
there is a lot of information aboutGoogle+ on their blog at http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/06/introducing-google-project-r... and it looks like it will be very feasible to use Google+ in conjunction with Ning.
I know it is early days but I would like to get Nings feedback on the possibity of such integration---even if it is not your preferred solution----would there be any objection?
There's no information from Google yet about making their service available via APIs. That would be a prerequisite for any kind of integration.
Judging from the statement below which was taken from http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/07/08/eric_schmidt_social_plans/
and reading between the lines I reckon Google might be very interested in talking to Ning.
I reckon Ning and Google+ would make an excellent fit.
Google chairman Eric Schmidt reckons that Mountain View's decision to keep invites to its latest social network to a minimum is already starting to pay off for the company.
It announced Google+ last week, when it began a limited "field test" that was clearly done to make the project more desirable among the happy-clappy Web2.0 crowd.
In a chat with reporters at the annual Allen & Co media shindig in Sun Valley, Idaho, yesterday, Schmidt claimed that tons of requests were flooding in for access to the firm's unfinished Google+ product.
The company used the same tactic at the launch of its largely forgotten near real-time Google Wave communication tool. But after the initial frenzy to sign-up to the product died down, disappointed users quickly abandoned Wave. Down the line, so did Google.
Arguably Google+, coming after the ad broker learned some tough lessons from its failed, privacy-lite Buzz launch, is a much stronger contender in the popularity stakes, given that the company has already baked, for example, video chat dubbed "Hangouts" into the system.
Facebook announced this week that it had hooked up with soon-to-be-if-cleared-by-regulators-Microsoft-owned Skype, which is a clear acknowledgment that social networks need to get serious about VoIP.
He added that Google would "love to have deeper integration with Twitter and Facebook".
That's an interesting statement, given that Google reached a stalemate with Twitter late last week when its Realtime Search deal with the microblogging site ended without any renewal of contracts.
Similarly, in recent months the company has failed several times to penetrate Facebook's famously sealed-off network. Just this week, Mark Zuckerberg's company blocked a Google Chrome extension that allowed users to export information about their Facebook "friends" so that data could be funnelled into rival services.
In effect, both Google and Facebook are making passive-aggressive moves against one another, while smiling serenely at their respective stalkerbases. But it's not all-out war yet.
When you customize a code, as it states, it will appear on the bottom of your page, and slow down the network. Can you add it as a group, and add it in the media file, therefore, you will put the group url address under the tab area entitled Tokbox, and when they (your members) click, it will go straight to the group page. That way, it will not slow up your network, or be at the bottom of your site.
1. Begin a group entitled Tokbox, and add the embed code in the Media File of the comment box.
2. Copy the URL address of your group
3. Go to Tabs and Pages under My Network
4. Click "Add New Tab"
5. Pasting the URL address: click onto the box stating "use existing URL" and paste the URL address, and then click onto "opens new window", then click onto save.
6. Test ~ does it open to the group page, and if so, are you able to load the video chat.
7. Providing all works....share! :o)

You can copy the code from this page or download the source code to get started using OpenTok in your own application. However make sure you do everything that it states in the below link first.
