Adding Videochat to your website

First of all, you should decide how you want the chat to appear on your web site - in a popup window or as a part of the page. We recommend using popup mode; however it is your choice.

Popup mode

To make the video chat open in a popup window when a user clicks a site link, you should setup the link in the following way:

<a href="javascript:openVideochatWindow('RoomID','UID','LanguageID');">Open Chat</a>

Parameters RoomID, UID and LanguageID are optional and will be described further.

Also, you should add the following string to the header section of the html page:

<script language="JavaScript" src="http://www.yoursite.com/flashcoms/common/js/flashcoms.js">
</script>

Embedded mode

To incorporate the chat in an html page you should paste the following html code at the relevant place of your page:

<div id="flashcoms_videochat_swf" style="width:100%; height:100%;">
<p><strong>Videochat</strong></p>
<p>You need to upgrade your Flash Player.</p><p>Version 8 or higher is required.</p>download from <a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer">http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer</a>
</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
//<![CDATA[
var so = new SWFObject("http://www.yoursite.com/flashcoms/flashcoms.swf", "videochat", "100%", "100%", "8", "#FFFFFF");
so.addVariable("rootPath", "http://www.yoursite.com/flashcoms/");

so.addVariable("uid", "UID");
so.addVariable("roomId", "RoomID");
so.addVariable("langId", "LanguageID");
so.write("flashcoms_videochat_swf");

// ]]>
</script>
