Bistri launch the Universal Video Conferencing!
We’ve announced a few weeks ago that 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.
Now you can invite anyone you know in one click!
1-Select a contact, whether he is on Facebook, Google+, Yahoo…
2-Click on the Conference button
Your permanent conference link is automatically sent to your contact through the chat:
Your conference room is automatically launched in another window. You just have to decide if you want to share your Camera in SD mode, HD mode (if you choose this one, it might make your computer and/or the other person’s lag), or if you want to share your screen. Screen sharing feature is available in Google Chrome 27+ with “Enable screen capture support in getUserMedia()” flag activated in chrome://flags.
You can even join the conference two times in two different tabs:
- to share your camera
- to share your screen
This is how the support video conference room look like:
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.
Bistri Universal Conferencing is coming up also with an update on the WordPress Widget. Now the link behind your Bistri Button can be your Bistri Link, or your Conference Link. Your visitors have nothing to download or install, no account to create, and don’t need to be your “friend”…
