III. Customisations

Customize: Detailed Options

Depending on project, customization options include:

  • Theme: Get a professional WordPress theme to skin site, change design.
    A theme with wide content area (preferably full page width) should be used so videochat interface can use most of the space.
    Some tested themes: Jupiter, Impreza, Elision, Sweet Date 4U.
  • Logo: You can start from a professional logo template.
  • Contents: Site pages, menus, categories and sections can be edited from WP CMS backend.
  • Plugins: Most WordPress plugins can be used to add complex features and customizations.
  • Backup ServicesUpdraft Plus – Automated WordPress backup plugin. Free for local storage. For production sites external backups are recommended (premium).
  • Translation: Plugin is localized, meaning a .pot file that contains mosts texts is included. Multiple translations for plugin are available as .po/.mo files and you can also edit/adjust or add new languages using a translation plugin. Videochat application texts can be translated from plugin settings.
  • Features: After ordering solution and setting up existing editions, VideoWhisper.com staff can customize these for additional fees depending on exact requirements.
    Software consists of videochat app that can be customised with parameters / by replacing interface skin images and the integration code (plugin) including php, js, css, settings that can be changed as needed. New options, features or changes in the app can be implemented by VideoWhisper developers.

II. Compatible Hosting

This software has special requirements (for the video streaming and live interaction part, regular shared web hosting is not enough):


HTML5 live streaming services and advanced features are based on licensed Wowza Streaming Engine server software, included on our servers. Without using our turnkey plans, hosting live streaming would involve a dedicated server, extra costs like $2100/year Wowza SE license, session control module $19/mo, streaming server configuration and administration costs.
All included in our complete hosting plans and turnkey site bundles at better costs, faster setup time:

Complete Turnkey Hosting
Our plans are optimised for streaming, on 1000Mbps connection and managed by our administrators that setup and keep services running at optimum performance.

More details and options for hosting:
We recommend starting with our turnkey plans because setting up your own live streaming servers involves higher costs, longer setup time, often lower reliability/performance and generally much hassle and effort compared to these starter plans.

A domain (like yourdomain.com) or subdomain (like videochat.yourdomain.com) can be used to host turnkey solution.
We recommend you use our turnkey complete hosting plans for everything (web + streaming services, required to run advanced features) but you can also use  in combination with your other web hosting (install solution on different hst and configure it to use streaming address from a plan you have with us) with limited functionality.

PS: Standard web hosting servers and plans don’t include the required specific live streaming server capabilities, server software licensing, tools and configurations or administrators experienced with such features.
We don’t recommend using a provider that does not have experience with these streaming solutions as that often leads to long setup hassle and unreliable service.
Our administrators can assist with setting up and administrating 3rd party servers, for additional fees, but such 3rd party hosts may not be designed (as hardware, network, system, configuration) to provide such features with good performance and reliability.
Using our plans and servers is usually faster, more cost effective and reliabile that setting up own servers, licensing all necessary software at retail price, administrating custom streaming configurations and services.
We recommend starting with our turnkey plans for quick reliable deployment and getting familiar with implementation and technology requirements in an environment where our staff can provide support.

IV. F.A.Q.

Frequently Asked Questions about solution, ordering, setup:

  • What are the total costs required to run solution?
    Solution consists of software license and compatible hosting and listed plans from $99/month include everything needed to deploy and run the solution. Additional investments for customizations are optional, depending on each project (you may want to get a premium theme, create a custom logo, add new features or advertise your site). Developing similar solutions from scratch usually take months only for the basic features and more for testing, troubleshooting.
  • How many users can be connected at same time?
    In licensed (full) mode all software limitations are removed meaning unlimited rooms and users can be active at the same time. These are limited only by the hosting resources and installation settings/parameters.
    Simultaneous users capacity depends on hosting streaming bitrate available. In example to watch 800kbps streaming, 10 users would require 8Mbps. Plan resources are described on plan pages (in example turnkey complete hosting) but exact capacity depends on each site, streaming bitrate configuration, specific user interaction pattern. You can do some rough estimates when selecting plan to start and then upgrade at runtime depending on real usage statistics. As project grows, you can scale .
  • What streaming quality is supported?
    Streaming resolution and bitrate are configurable at runtime and also defaults can be configured from setup settings.
    Higher quality involves higher bitrate, meaning higher user connection and hosting plan requirements.
    The live demos are limited to 480p 750kbps for testing and in full mode any resolution and bitrate can be used (720p 1080p 4k), depending on hosting plan, broadcaster connection, number of simultaneous viewers.
    Streaming can be done by WebRTC UDP with the web based interface and also with OBS desktop or Larix mobile app RTMP TCP, to accommodate broadcaster network conditions (UDP may be less reliable / bitrate limited with certain providers).
  • Do I need a streaming server (Wowza SE) license when using your hosting?
    No, our servers are already licensed. The plan price listed on site includes all mentioned hosting features.
    When setting up own server with a 3rd party provider, multiple items should be considered to meet all requirements (as described on requirements page and streaming server setup and administration page): suitable hardware and network, specific server software licensing, server software installation, specific streaming server configuration, optimizations and maintenance.
  • Do I need to transfer my domain when using web + live streaming hosting plans?
    No, you just need to point domain (from domain registrar) to name severs provided on account setup. If you don’t have a domain, yet you can register a domain with any registrar.  Pointing domain involves changing hosting (if already have a host), not domain registrar. You can have domain registered with any registrar. If you have an advanced web host or own VPS / server with FFmpeg you can also keep that and setup remote live streaming from VideoWhisper.
  • Can I use CloudFlare name servers or similar caching or static content optimization services?
    Not recommended. Highly dynamic and interactive features can be broken or delayed by services designed to optimize static content. More details are available on detailed Requirements page : Session Control requires streaming server to make requests to web server and these are disabled by default CloudFlare setup.
    Other malfunctions from such services can occur in form of timeouts, restrictions on video uploads, disabling certain requests or site features, showing outdated output or wrong formats for adaptive interfaces, extra latency on requests (including visible delays for interactions and chat), errors with live user status / interactions / pay per minute billing.
    If you really want to try configuring CloudFlare for installation domain, on request VideoWhisper staff can configure Session Control requests to use the dedicated IP by HTTP instead of domain by HTTPS, but other issues with dynamic interactive site features can occur as mentioned above.
  • Can I use a 3rd party host?
    Only if it meets all the requirements. Regular web hosts usually don’t meet the requirements and don’t have experience, configuration/network/servers designed for such setups. We don’t recommend using a provider that does not have experience with these streaming solutions as that often leads to long setup hassle and unreliable service.
    You may be able to combine an existing web host with the VideoWhisper live streaming services (remotely): If you have an advanced web host or own VPS / server with FFmpeg you can also keep that and setup remote live streaming from VideoWhisper.
  • How can I use the turnkey site solution if I already have a website?
    If your website is WordPress based, you can bring it to the compatible hosting (automated copy is available for cPanel accounts) and the solution can be added as WP plugins.
    If your website is not WP based, the new turnkey site solution can be deployed on a subdomain or different domain.
  • How fast is this delivered?
    License and regular turnkey hosting setup is usually delivered in a couple of days.
    Installation assistance can be provided after domain propagates to the compatible hosting plans or complete required installation details are provide, when hosting with a 3rd party.
    Faster you order, faster you can have it setup.
  • How is this turnkey site solution delivered?
    After licensing and/or hosting setup, details are sent in a new ticket with notification to emails provided when ordering. Make sure you provide a functional email and alternate email. If notification does not come in estimated delivery time, you can submit a ticket from contact page with order details to make sure you are receiving the emails. Notification emails sometimes go to spam folders because they contain multiple links including IP based (for hosting).
    Delivery notification should not be confused with automated billing notification from billing site, that is sent right after order processing.
  • Does this videochat solution work on mobiles?
    Yes, solution implements HTML5 only interfaces both for performer and clients.
    – The HTML5 Videochat interface (recommended) works in mobiles and uses WebRTC technology.
  • Does this solution involve app store submission/approval?
    This solution runs in mobile browsers from own website, without need for your business to get approved in app stores, share most profit with app store, use only their billing methods and restrictive content policies.
    App stores involve high commissions  (30%, in addition to revenue sharing with performers), content restrictions and policies that may not suit most businesses, limited billing options. Major players in the industry also run web based platforms.
    Performers can still use generic live streaming applications like Larix, Telestream Wirecast Go, Teradeck Live:Air Solo, nanoStream (already approved in app stores) to stream and users watch and pay from website without permission from app stores.
  • Is HTML5 WebRTC supported?
    Yes, solution implements WebRTC for streaming to/from media relay server. Performers can start session in HTML5 Videochat or simplified HTML5 Streaming mode to use WebRTC.
    This brings compatibility for HTML5 mobile browsers, to allow streaming directly from site without configuring stand alone encoder apps.
    A streaming server is used as a relay for scalability, reliability and cross protocol stream availability. Relay server also manages sessions and advanced interactions in real time.
  • Why not use P2P for WebRTC? Why does it use a relay streaming server?
    As standard WebRTC implementations utilize peering networks, there still has to be a nearby node to help distribute the stream to other local hosts. Peering across a global network can be incredibly difficult.
    Broadcasters would need server grade connections to live stream to multiple users and using a regular home ADSL connection (that has has higher download and bigger upload) causes real issues.
    While testing with 2 or few users works fine in demos and small load trials, WebRTC limits often show in production mode: becomes unusable when many users are watching same HD stream and broadcaster connection is regular.
    All startups hope their streaming applications will become a huge success, with thousands of viewers watching. A performer streaming a full hd video at 6-8 Mbps directly to 100 viewers in various world locations would require up to 600-800Mbps upload connection which is unlikely to achieve for a retail home connection. A streaming server in a well connected datacenter will do the job. Above average home ADSL connections have under 100Mbps upload allowing streaming such video to a maximum of 12 users.
  • Why use WordPress framework?
    Many of most successful sites use WP framework: WordPress is the top platform of choice for top 10 000 sites due to its reliability, quality of code, ease of use, capacity for many users, ability to customize. For most startups it is best to use mature, open source code to achieve performance, security, reliability with cost effective investment.
    The turnkey videochat site solution is based on WordPress framework for managing users, content, setting billing, plugins (secure tested high performance code chosen by top sites) and deploys as a standalone turnkey site solution.
    Why use WP framework and not custom scripts? This script benefits from power of WordPress, reliability, ease of use, plugins, themes, a large community of experienced developers and designers, high quality coding and security standards. Core code is continuously developed, tested and secured.
    Some developers could extract our videochat features from that WP plugin (provided with full PHP code) or simplified plain php edition and integrate with custom scripts or a different less popular framework. That can take a lot of time and investment and resulting code will probably be of lesser quality than tested, secure, reliable WP framework.
  • I have some other questions: Where can I find further clarifications?
