A Live Chat App for My Mum
My mum recently got hooked up with her own lap top and due to the distance between us got a web cam to chat with my kids, nice move! Problem was her first trial with Instant Messenger started of with a few hurdles in the registration process and ultimately ended up with the blue screen of death on first flicker of live video???
So I thought I would develop a 1 to 1 video chat application using Flash Media Server and Flash to get the kids talkin’ to grandma :) I wanted a super simple, no entering text or jump any hurdles solution with client id to be handled server side. The server side script for handling clients is below:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17
Called mum gave the URL and hey presto, kids and grandma chatting away happily and no blue screen of death!!!
