Demo for Video Conference Website Software
The best way to see it in action is with the online video conference software demo .
Just click the Enter Chat button and you'll be able to test all features online.
If you do not provide an username it will automatically generate a GuestYYYY name for you.
To fully test the functionality of this software you will need a standard computer with webcam and microphone, any operating system with a browser with latest flash plugin and a decent internet connection. If you are using a regular ADSL internet connection do not use very high quality settings for your webcam streaming as ADSL has low upload speed. If broadcasted webcam stream is wide, it will not be able to upload all data stream to the streaming server, causing frame loss and interruptions.
You can also evaluate it using the demos for other editions (i.e. Joomla): demo links and details are available on each edition page.

Archiving Video Conferencing Sessions
Both for Red5 and FMIS all live streams can be recorded as flv files for archiving purposes if enabled in RTMP application settings . In fact this can be done for all videowhisper streams. This is useful for verifying content type violation reports on sites where streaming is publicly available.
Desktop Sharing / Screen Broadcasting on Video Conferences
If your publishers want to broadcast their screen (when playing a game, using a program, tutoring various computer skills) they can do that easily just by using a screen sharing driver that simulates a webcam from desktop contents.

Video Conference Panel Layout
Video conference panels can be moved and resized realtime during run time by each user. Additionally, the webmaster can change their default startup positions and sizes.
To create a new layout, first enter a room and move + resize the video conference panels as you desire. Then send this message with the chat panel:
An alert panel will show with a text code that contains the panel properties (positions and sizes). Just copy this code and paste it as the layout code settings. Make sure you resize the alert panel to get all code. Different video conference software editions have different ways to configure this layout code.
