Working with the plugin "Video Instant Messenger". | Forum

Does anyone have experience with the "Video Instant Messenger" plugin.

Does this plugin still work or are there problems with it, but will it not be updated?

What are the advantages and disadvantages, for example.!

Before we want to purchase this plugin, we first want to know whether it actually works properly.

Developer responses don't seem to come according to the reviews anymore, so that's a dead end.


Any info is welcome....

pls read customer feedback. i eas thinking about it but i changed my mind after reading those reviews. actually i created pluging for my website based on same technology that lets users send out audio messages to each other.

We have also looked at the reviews, and there were 2 that got it working and are satisfied with it.

Unfortunately, we do not know whether this is true.

There are no other video chat plugins unless it goes through another website.

Surely there must be someone who can get it working or develop such a video chat plugin.?

keep in mind that this pluging although uses webrtc still needs stun server which aint free.

We know that it is not free, but operating websites is not free.

The demand for video chat is currently high, only here on Oxwall there is not much discussed unfortunately.

Perhaps this question from us encourages developers.

The main reason IMO that there are no video chat plugins is because even with webrtc which simplifies the process, it is still very complicated to code.   There are third party API's but many admins want to host their own data for privacy. Meaning admins dont want some other company reading and doing whatever they want with their users chats, that is where the challenges are.


I dont think a developer is going to do such an involved plugin and then sell it for $20 each.  But i hope i am wrong.


And yes +1 Marcus also very expensive to run.

Folks, we didn't have the illusion that it would be easy LOL.

But Marcus, only audio is not what we were looking for.

We have thought of ArrowChat but there is no plugin for Oxwall right now unfortunately.

According to our info, this chat software includes video, however we feel that this software is still connecting to their website.?

And you're right Dave, to place data of members at other companies, we find that a little invasion of privacy even though these companies say that the data is completely safe with them.

Okay SD, that would be very nice.

Although we probably need to switch to another server.?

We thought Oxwall doesn't really describe that in their info about this plugin.

The new plugin will be compatible with any server, you will not need to make any changes. It will work out of the box and it will be compatible with the default messages plugin.

Do you really need this plugin? If so, hope you solve your problem. As for me, I constantly think about my writing assignments. Guys, don`t you know how cheap is to use essay service? I think of ordering an essay here https://www.customwritings.com, maybe several, what are the prices? Is it expensive to use such services or this pleasure is cheap? Thank you, guys.

In different video essays, I'd say something good. However, several students are unable to compose daily essays. I will help with that. The best way is at https://www.bestcustomwriting.com/ . It's professionals who really know what and how to do, I'm so glad that I found this organization. I'm glad I've been with them.
