Question regarding group chat

Postby 5ten15twenty » Tue Jan 15, 2013 3:12 pm

We are trying to implement just the text chat portion of group chat. We would like to have a normal broadcast video of one person, but many people text chatting beneath. When we implement group chat, it reduced the video window, as if the video window is awaiting more presenters. We will only have one presenter. Any tips?

Thanks

We don't offer text chat, but here's a list of providers who do:
firebase.com
pusher.com
parse.com
pubnub.com
spire.io
wompt.com

Any of those should be able to be implemented relatively easily, good luck!

The groupchat embed is a video chat tool you can embed onto your website without programming knowledge. It only has video chat, so you will need to integrate text chat yourself. Apologies for the confusion.
