VideoWhisper Video Consultation is a premium high definition video communication software designed for online video consultations, trainings, webinars, coaching and online collaboration.

It was designed for few to many 2 way moderated video communication. Moderators control what participant is displayed on main screen (speaker) and can also add an additional participant (inquirer) to ask questions or assist. Participants can change their public status (i.e. request to speak), upload and download room files, text and video chat.

Latest version includes P2P groups support, codec configuration (H264, Speex, Nellymoser), acoustic echo cancellation if supported by client.

The free version has some limitations (maximum consultation time, participants per room).

Video Consultation integration component for joomla allows easy setup of the VideoWhisper Video Consultation software. This provides live web based video conferencing, chat and file exchange features with advanced realtime moderation designed for video seminars, internet based live trainings and e-learning, online collaboration.

Supports JomSocial groups if component is available.

Joomla integration features:
Backend Features: Setup parameters, create and manage all rooms (including permissions) and room templates.
Front End Features: List latest public rooms & user's rooms, create room (from template), manage settings for own rooms.

The component is developed using MVC (model view controller) and works for Joomla 1.5, Joomla 1.6, Joomla 1.7, Joomla 2.5 . It includes a powerful administrator side that allows creating and managing video consultation rooms and room templates with multiple advanced options.

This joomla integration component is provided with full php source code under GPL. This basicly means you can use, tweak, distribute the component php files as you wish. Contact us if you have interesting tweaks for this or derived components and want to share these with the world.

Full details about the integration component and installation here:

This advanced software requires 2 types of hosting: a regular php&mysql web hosting plan for the regular website features (you probably have that if you have joomla installed) and a special plan (usually on a different special server) for video streaming and other instant communication required between chat clients. You need 1 of these to run the interactive and streaming part of the software: FMIS or Red5. See the software requirements page on our site for more details. Red5 is free and open source but you need a VPS or Dedicated Server with root access to install it. If you're not very technical you can also find this type of hosting with management services on our site or from other providers.

I looked for Video Consultation software for months, but most of course didn't work with my Joomla Sites... This one does and does it wonderfully. I debated on trying the trial version first, but opted to just jump in and buy it and pray.
Ends up their was no need to worry as VideoWhisper ticket support was excellent. Very helpful went above and beyond to make certain that everything was setup and installed for me and even came back and helped me tweak it and when my Red5 server had to be changed due to a faulty hard drive they went in and set it back up for me.
I can't Thank them enough for all their help and timely repys to my tickets.
While I would love a users guide, even I have muddled my way through to understand setting up the rooms and presentations. And you have to concider that I am over 60 years old and have no computer background.
