or just use netmeeting, if you got a windows system, there you connect p2p if you got the ip adress, if you got a dynamic ip try the netmeeting connector www.lab1.de , this tool generates a txt file and upload it to your server, so you just can include a link on your moodle page, if you click on the link on the moodle page, netmeeting is starting and connecting automatically p2p.
netmeeting is not to bad, video&audio works fine, and it is also possible to share application, for example a powerpoint presentaion
Some words about my experience with netmeeting. I haven't find a good solution for:
- recording conference. Some not open source programs exists for recording only video www.meetingbywire.com
- multicast, as OpenMCU multicast only H323 (video and audio) but not T.120 (sharing applications, whiteboard and chat)
- authentication, as NetMeeting can not organize rooms on GNUgk
What if we use a sever like red 5 instead of a P2P connection?
Any idea about that?
What do i need to do to add these capabilities to moodle chat room?
Why would you want to add video to the Moodle chatroom, which is, as the name indicates, a chatroom. If you are going to install Red5 in your server, then you could also install OpenMeetings in the server and then network it with Moodle via the OpenMeetings activity plugin. Then teachers can open OpenMeetings (video)conference rooms from their Moodle course and students in the couse can enter those OpenMeetings rooms from Moodle much like they would join a Moodle chatroom. The OpenMeetings videoconference rooms have a chat option, video and audio and in addition to that a whiteboard, file upoad and sharing and they also allow screen sharing and recording of the sessions.
both ivisit and eyeball chat are windows solution what about linux
and also how can i use them in my site
