The turnkey site edition involves registration roles. The apps are also available in some simplified demonstrative setups, for quick testing without registration:
* Demos of video call functionality from same app in different integrations. Limited features are implemented/active in these demos.
There are 2 ways of initiating private video calls:
In addition to group chat modes, performer can Go Live in Calls or Locked Calls mode, disabling group chat.
Performers can use call only modes to take calls, without starting group / presale chat.
These modes are predefined in latest defaults.
In Locked Calls mode, room is only available for predefined call links, hiding from room list.
Private chat is available in 3 modes:
– video call (webcam, microphone, text chat)
– audio call (microphone, text chat)
– text chat (only text chat)
Call mode can be selected by client when requesting from listings menu (instant) or when setup by provider (locked).
Provider can setup both paid and free calls. Different paid call types can have different cost per minute (in tokens/credits using micropayments).
When requested inside group live chat, call inherits group chat mode (video or audio/text only).
Call can be started with microphone only (chat + audio) and a Reveal button activates after some warmup time.
User can reveal own webcam by choice after warmup time. There’s a timer showing time left until webcam can be uncovered.
Warmup time can be configured from settings or by user if options are enabled in chat interface.
HTML5 Videochat supports audio only mode where users can only broadcast microphone without camera video.
Audio only is effective for users with low internet connections.
When using simple interface (Broadcast, Playback, 2 Way) a special interface focused on chat shows for audio only.
