I did a really quick test since I think this technology is awesome and will move video conferencing one step closer to ubiquity.
What I Did
Since my first review of Vidtel, they have left a room on their system for me to test with (thank you Vidtel!!). So using that room (2819) and entering the correct pin, I did the following.
1. Dialed my Vidtel virtual room using Chrome.
2. Entered the correct pin to connect to my room.
3. Dialed my Vidtel “MeetMe” room using Google Chat on my Smartphone.
Once connected, I changed the layout (figure 4) and then added the keyboard (figure 5).
There is so much more you can do…give it a try!
Using WebRTC to connect to a video conference is one more, albeit it major, step to bringing video conferencing to the masses.
Using your browser makes connecting to a video conference super easy. Once connected, the audio and video quality are excellent.
I love to see companies move the technology forward. Bravo Vidtel! 🙂
