WebRTC Video Conferencing and Screen Sharing for everyone on Bistri.com
From now on, everyone on Bistri has his own Video Conference room, up to 4 participants. One unique and simple link to join your conference: bistri.me/username/conf
As always on Bistri, it’s a frictionless new feature. The persons who joins your conference doesn’t need to create an account on Bistri, or install anything.
This is how it looks like (click to connect to the Bistri HQ Conference Room):
For the moment, it is a full WebRTC feature, which means that you need Firefox 22+ or Chrome 23+, it doesn’t work on IE nor Safari yet. The Screen Sharing is available in Google Chrome 27+ with “Enable screen capture support in getUserMedia()” flag activated in chrome://flags
Bistri is coming up also on WordPress with a plugin that displays a customizable “join the conference” button on your blog / site. Your visitors just click on this button to make a video conference with you, without anything to download or install. No account to create, no need to be your “friend”…
