TokBox releases Open-Tok API

November 15th, 2010

Embed multiple video streams

TokBox has released the Open-Tok API. Open-Tok allows you to embed multiple live video streams directly into your website.

With the OpenTok platform, developers can build multi-way video chat into their Web experience in any way they choose, using an extensive set of JavaScript APIs. The platform is entirely flexible and customizable – from the size, layout, motion and interaction of individual video streams, to who can see, hear and talk to whom. Any one conversation can have up to 20 participants and can take place on different Web pages simultaneously, whether that is within one site or across multiple Web sites. That same conversation can also be watched by thousands of people. In addition, OpenTok incorporates two Tokbox proprietary technologies for enhancing the chat experience – echo suppression (to reduce echo within the multi-way chats) and auto-production (to switch video streams to highlight the person who is talking).

EVO 4G will help Sprint redefine their definition of Everything

May 28th, 2010

This comes from Andronica.com (one of the better Android news sources)

It looks like the meaning of “Everything” is changing in the minds of Sprint. First we learned that the HTC EVO 4G would come with a $10 per month charge for premium data, and now it looks like users will also have to pay $4.99 a month if they want to use the Video Chat portion of the Qik app. Though, in fairness to Sprint, given that its noted as being paid via PayPal this appears to be a fee that will be paid directly to Qik. Still, whether the user is paying Sprint or Qik — these extra fees seem to be adding up for those that plan to take FULL advantage of the EVO and all it can do.

I am almost 100% positive that a rooted EVO 4g will have access to multiple Video Chat options that will cost far less than $4.00 per month.

FREE comes to mind!
