Hello and hope you had a great Easter. But we didn’t rest to much these days and updated the AVChat3 Integration Kit for Joomla! 1.6-2.5 (build 1486). We brought minor updates and bug fixes to the integration kit, and here there are: We’ve updated the AVChat Admin Interface page to tell you when the admin.swf file is missing or the installation of the integration kit was not performed properly. Changed the minimum Flash Player version necessary to run our software from 10.0 to 10.3 because of new AVChat requirement introduced in build 1461.

Hello and may I wish you a wonderful year! We have the pleasure to begin this year with an update to the AVChat Integration Kits for Joomla! This update adds 2 new features and fixes some reported bugs. Here is a quick list of what we’ve added: When available, the age is added to username in the user’s list (only for JomSocial).

As you probably know, Joomla! 1.7 was released last week. The second day we tested our Joomla! 1.6 Integration Kit and it worked like a charm with Joomla! 1.7 . The only problem we found was that JomSocial 2.2 and Community Builder 1.4 are not yet compatible with Joomla! 1.7. So if you want to use AVChat 3 with Joomla! 1.7 you can use the AVChat 3 Integration Kit for Joomla! 1.6, but without the support for JomSocial and Community Builder. We will announce here and on our forum (dedicated topic for Joomla! 1.7 Development) when news are coming on the way.

New, revamped Who’s Chatting Module for Joomla! 1.6: Quick info about rooms and users Detailed user info: indicators that users have their cam and mic turned on and indicator if a user’s stream is private Detailed room info: We added a  rooms list in the module and next to each room you will find how many users are logged into that room. But , the coolest[…]

There are two ways to open the AVChat Video Chat Component in a pop up in Joomla!: Using Joomla!’s default method: Log in the administrator area of Joomla!. In the Menus area edit the link to AVChat 3. Set the On Click, Open in option to  New Window without Browser Navigation (screenshot below) Click Save. That’s it!
