This component uses OpenTeknik LLC Video Calling API. Allows your users to do a video call with each other. (Only on PC)
They are providing a free access right now for their beta program.
Before testing make sure you have a camera, microphone working with your system and you provide a permission to use in browser and selects correct device.
I have problems with it,
1. Let's say User A is friends with User B, User B and A can call each other normally, But User C is not friends with User A but they still can request to call them if they are online. This NEEDS to be fixed
2. Add a Disable Camera option or a Make a Call with Video and Make a Call without video buttons
@Allon, Thank You.
We want it to work with mobile devices. 90% of our users use only mobile devices.
@Arsalan, can this PLEASE be ported to work with mobile devices?
@Balamurali ... I have this installed on my site. You can connect and make a call from a desktop or tablet to a mobile device. You cannot yet make a call from a mobile device unless it is tablet like and will show the call widget on the far right of the user that you want to calls profile.
@Arsalan ... Can we make a profile menu tab using custom profile tabs component that will open up on a mobile device to facilitate a video call?
Please advise if this component works well in the mobile browsers too.

Thanks and Regards
To Request an API you have to disable the Privet network components :)
Server has returned some error
you are returning this error when I request the apikey
@Arsalan ... Cool. Knowing that, I will probably be trying this out some time around mid May, when I'm done traveling for my spring time contracts. If it works with mobile and desktop universally it will likely be a good addition.
@Phil, it works fine on mobiles, initially I requested to test on PC only however before beta launch we tested on mobile phones also (IOS and android) chrome it worked fine.
Is there a reason this is only on PC? Over 80% of web users are now using mobile only. In my case, over 90% on my site,
