Build Your Own Video Conferencing App with Vline

Build Your Own Video Conferencing App with Vline | Mobile Websites vs Mobile Apps | Scoop.it

Robin Good: The guys at Vline are busy developing a new tool that will allow any developer to integrate a videoconferencing app on any web site without ever needing to use Flash or other plugins.

 

By leveraging the original Google Web RTC project, which provided an open framework for enabling RTC in the browser, the small team at Vline began building a tool that bundles together all the technology required to build video conferencing capacity into an inexpensive and easy-to-use package without using Flash or requiring you to be logged in into Google.

 

From the official site:

 

1) Add video chat and instant messaging to your app with a few lines of Javascript or Objective-C.

 

2) Built from the ground up for the new HTML5 video conferencing standard (no Flash or plugins required).

 

 

From VentureBeat: "VLine, a cloud video conferencing platform for developers, showcased its platform for the first time yesterday at the Google developer conference.

 

It also revealed raising $1.5 million in seed funding from Kleiner Perkins and Harrison Metal.

 

VLine enables web and mobile developers to integrate high quality, video conferencing into their applications without using Flash or plug-ins.

 

...

 

During the beta period over the next several months, the product will be free of charge."

Robin Good: Presentate is a new web-based HTML5 presentation builder which promises flawless compatibility across operating systems and devices, integrated interactivy and some integrated design and editorial guidance.

 

From the official site: "Exporting your deck to a PDF, or uploading it to a Flash-based player shares a low-fidelity snapshot of your presentation. The accompanying narrative is lost, and your readers are left with pull quotes, sound bytes, or a bullet point summary.

 

Presentate does things differently. As you create your presentations right in the browser, they’re immediately ready to be shared with people, and the fidelity and value of all your hard work remains intact — no exporting process, no hassle."

 

"Unlike your current tools, Presentate helps you engage your audience — not with effects and gimmicks, but with a high-fidelity, immersive experience that works across all platforms."

Social Videoconferencing via Facebook: Airtime Is Here

Robin Good: Airtime is a new social videoconferencing app that allows you to have one-to-one video conversations with people you have probably never met before, but who share your same location and interests.

 

From TheNextWeb review: "Essentially, it’s like Chat Roulette, but not nearly as creepy, and with little to zero nudity.

 

Source: http://thenextweb.com/apps/2012/06/05/sean-parkers-airtime-officially-launches-to-create-shared-experiences-with-people-you-know/ ;

 

From Telepresenceoptions.com: "Airtime is the combination of two existing technologies; web-based videoconferencing and interest-based user pairing."

 

"Airtime is tied to your Facebook account (Parker is the former President of Facebook, which should help to ensure successful integration).

 

The Facebook connection serves a few purposes. It allows Airtime users to easily initiate video chat with their Facebook friends, and it also allows Airtime to peek into your publicly listed "interests" (likes, subscriptions, etc.) and use that information to connect you with other, random, Airtime users."
