Free WebRTC video chat embed!

Wow, this year is off to a good start! I have been searching for a video chat that would work on tablets and smartphones. NO FLASH!   I found it last night! You can find it on OpenClove . It works well. We tested it out with computers first and then smartphones. my members are loving it. Some say they like it better than Skype. It's the best thing since sliced bread!

You only need to add one instance of it to your site. You can add more if you want, but it's not necessary. Members can create their own rooms by creating a unique passcode and passing it on to the members that they would like to talk to. I started out by embedding it into a page, but then I found a way to make a pop up version. I put the pop out in the ad space above the header on my site. Feel free to come and try it out.

I'm attaching both codes here if you would like to use them. 

 OpenClove embed code

 OpenClove pop up code

The Pop up code includes this gif image, but you can change it out for any image that you want. 

I hope that you and your members enjoy this as much as what we are.

    • hi Charry 

      What code do we need after we enter our name ?

      • You can put any code that you want. The beauty of it is that members can put their own code to create private conversations, making it possible to have countless rooms from just one application. 

  • This is awesome! Thanks...

    • I'm glad that you like it. We've been using it since the beginning of the year. My members are happy with it.
