Welcome to Coms Video Chat
In this demo, we'll test a video call between this device and one or more others - your phone, PC or laptop - to demonstrate how the chat service running at coms.online
can be embedded in a different domain.
plugin provides video chat for users who are logged into the host website or app, and enables visitors to call specific people or departments - Support
, for example.
The ppl variable ...
To identify the people in a calling group, we use a comma-separated list of usernames: first the current user's username followed by all the others. For example:
ppl = "Name1,Name2,Name3,Name4";
Try it now ...
Enter as Name1
( "Name1,Name2,Name3,Name4" )
Go to https://acdit.com/webRTC_Plugin_Demo/
(this page) on another device ...
Enter as Name2
( "Name2,Name1,Name3,Name4" )
On a third device ...
Enter as Name3
( "Name3,Name1,Name2,Name4" )
On a fourth device ...
Enter as Name4
( "Name4,Name1,Name2,Name3" )
Your server-side software prepares the ppl
, allowing calls to and from the others.
By creating different ppl
strings, your application can create chat rooms for specific purposes.
Users can find and call each other under the green users icon.
The list contains only those who are online and not already in a call.
The button contains these functions:
"Park" toggles with "Full Window" (see the Demo).
Iframe, tab or window
As you can see, the video chat system running at https://coms.online
is embedded in this domain (acdit.com), demonstrating how it can be embedded cross-origin and how the connections available to each user are controlled by the opening parameters.
can be opened by a webpage in an iframe or a new tab or window, and it can be opened by an app. For Android, use WebView to open an in-app browser, and for Apple apps use SFSafariViewController, not the WKWebView.
offers code solutions for most scenarios and we are happy to personally guide you through the integration.
