Joomla is an award-winning member and content management system (CMS), which enables you to build web sites and powerful online applications. Joomla is free and open source, easy to install and supports many ready made add ons to extend its functionality (e-commerce, e-learning, inventory, reporting, bridges to other applications).
Also 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.
Before installing, make sure your hosting environment meets all requirements.
Froom joomla administrator interface fill rtmp application address in component parameters from Components > VideoWhisper.com Video Conference .
Enable the module from Extensions > Modules (joomla administrator interface) if you want to list public video conference rooms on your site.

In Joomla 1.6-1.7+ you should configure these to show module on standard templates: Status: Published, Position: position-7 (usually left column), Module Assignment : On all Pages, then [Save&Close].
You can install and use multiple VideoWhisper communication components on same website.
Set Error Reporting = Simple from Global Configuration > Server as notices and warnings can break parameters.
Disable/configure any SEO/ad injection components to not alter these components and modules. Changing links or adding extra content to component output will usually cause flash application parameter errors.
Joomla menus for application are not available because room links are dynamic (based on room name). Room links must be used and displayed with the module or exact static links listed for each room in the component.
When in Maitenance Mode (Site Offline), applications will NOT be able to connect to web server.
