Hey everyone,

Not sure how many of you have used the video conferencing system called TokBox at TokBox - Free Video Chat and Video Messaging but it is pretty cool. You can do real time video chats like you can with skype but you can also send video emails and last but not least you can have a video conference with up to 20 people at once. It looks real cool but what caught my eye is that they do have an API for website developers at http://code.google.com/p/tokboxapi/

It is open source so I am not sure if any of the ocPortal programers want to play with it or maybe one of the smarter than me users on the site. I think this could be a really cool add on. Let me know what you think.

Well-settled

Hi Rick, this software is quite interesting. I am looking at incorporating it into my site and its possible to just use HTML to add it to your website. I've added a post in the community documentation to go through the process.

Thanks for this great find Rick!:)
It is worth investigating further, as it looks to be a good collaborative platform for teaching online as well.

Many thanks to Hanburgler for posting to the community docs an easy method of incorporating it to an ocPortal page.:thumbs:

Thanks Hanburgler, I will give your documentation a try. If you are talking about the one that you just kind of embed I did try it, I could get the interface to display and that was about it. I am hoping that it can be integrated to use the user database to show who is chatting.
