Title: Livestream Live Chat Service to Embed on Webpage
Post by: Phil Lewandowski on March 10, 2021, 03:32:16 pm
Hi all,

I'm doing a livestream for a virtual fundraiser using the GiveSmart platform. We are doing a portion were it would be great for the virtual attendees who are watching the video to be involved in a live chat so that our hosts can interact with them.

We use Boxcast for streaming but they don't offer live chat with livestreams. They suggest using the free service of Chatango. The problem is that the GiveSmart platform requires iframe code to embed, and Chatango doesn't use that.

Anyone know if there is any live chat service that might use iframe? Or live chat services to look at in general? This is a one-time off sort of thing so free or affordable is preferred.

Thanks!

Phil, my "day job" company is giving away Sangoma Meet it's video conference and live chat.  I don't know how long this pandemic offer will continue so we should chat about that too.


I am grabbing your wireless to test.  Keith and I talked I am just grabbing a fully setup rack with 4 RX's, 4 handhelds, 4 belt packs, 4 lav's and 2 DPA's with a combiner that you can test/play with for a couple of weeks.

Oh man, thanks so much! Hoping you didn't get too far into building the wireless rack as our Pastor really wanted to push ahead and bite the bullet on the wireless mics.
Ended up with the Sennheiser 100 G4's.  Been very happy so far, and for the money was probably exactly what we needed.

Sorry, that I couldn't respond more quickly!
