This special edition is a turnkey script that creates a stand alone site similar in idea and main feature to ChatRoulette.com .
The resulted site will not be an identical copy (so you don't have to worry about copyright issues) .
Being based on 2 Way Video Chat - a professional reliable 1 on 1 webcam chat solution, there are some important functional improvements. A turnkey site based on this script clearly stands out when comparing ChatRoulette clones and alternatives.
Main improvement is reliability: will work for most of clients, compared to pure P2P solutions that don't work or generate huge latency for users with regular connection.
See the advanced chat roulette turnkey script in action on Video Encounter, a new live website that brings you face-to-face, via webcam, with an endless stream of random strangers all over the world. You need to bring some friends for testing if no one is online.
For easier testing of the appliction, try the plain plain videochat solution to setup a room url and see how it works for you.
Also see Embed Chat Roulette page and Webcam Chat Logs with Snapshots .
There is also a Joomla chatroulette clone that is easy to install as Joomla component and provides simple implementation for Joomla users.
Before installing, make sure your hosting environment meets all Videowhisper video chat requirements and special requirements of this edition.
- If you're not hosting RTMP with us go to RTMP Application Setup for installation details.
- Get the latest zip from Downloads page (download 2 Way Video Chat > Chat Roulette).
- Unzip package on your computer.
- Create a mysql database on your web host, create an user, add user to database with ALL priviledges. Then import "mysql/tables.sql" into that database. You can do that with phpmyadmin (from hosting control panel).
- Fill MySQL settings in "upload/settings.php" .
- Register a facebook application for your website. Update "upload/settings.php" with your api key and secret code as $fb_api_key and $fb_secret . Use "facebook/" on your new website as canvas page to embed the video chat on facebook.
- Fill your RTMP path (see step 1) into "upload/videochat/settings.php" as $rtmp_server .
- Get a RTMFP path (i.e. by registering for a free developer key from Adobe Stratus ) and fill into "upload/videochat/settings.php" as $rtmfp_server .
- Upload everything from "upload" folder to your publich web location (that shows on http://www.yourwebsite.com ).
If you don't have the time or experience to set this up, you can also order installation . If your purchase already includes that, send hosting details in a ticket. You will need to register your own facebook application and stratus key.
