OpenTok.js Change

Over the last several months, we’ve focused on why end-users have difficulty connecting to OpenTok sessions to try to understand how we can make this easier.

We discovered that the first hurdle many end-users run into is properly allowing hardware access. On average 25% of Google Chrome and 5% of Mozilla Firefox publishers fail due to not allowing access to their camera and mics.

However, the OpenTok platform should solve this problem for you and your end-users.

OpenTok Plugin for Internet Explorer

OpenTok Plugin for Internet Explorer

Here at TokBox, we’re committed to making your everyday communication easier. We connect people in different parts of the world and tear down physical boundaries by providing real-time face-to-face communication in any browser or mobile app.
Underneath it all is WebRTC.

Unfortunately, the realities of aligning large companies (Google & Microsoft) sometimes stands in the way of progressing a forward-facing standard (WebRTC). We know the web has a large percentage of users who use Internet Explorer as their main desktop browser. As of today, Internet Explorer doesn’t support WebRTC natively. These users may be unable to upgrade to Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox due to strict policies implemented at their workplaces, not knowing how to change the default browser on their home machines, or not being willing to switch out of their comfort zone.
