Find on this page: live demo, installation instructions, joomla integration details, customizations info.


Live Demo

    Register an account, login, click Video Messenger > Create New Department... from the Video Messenger module to setup your own department and test.
Installation Instructions

Before installing, make sure your hosting environment meets all requirements.

  1. If you're not hosting RTMP with us go to RTMP Application Setup for installation details
  2. Download and install component and module zips from Extensions > Install/Uninstall in joomla administrator interface.
  3. From joomla administrator interface fill rtmp path in component parameters from Components > VideoWhisper.com Video Messenger. This usually has this form: rtmp://your-rtmp-host.com/videowhisper . We send you this if you host with us.
  4. Get a RTMFP path (i.e. by registering for a free developer key from Adobe Cirrus) and also fill that into parameters for enabling P2P connections (optional).
  5. Enable the module from Extensions > Modules (joomla administrator interface).
    In Joomla 1.6+ or later you should configure these to show modules on standard templates:
    Details: Status: Published, Position: position-7 (usually left column), Menu Assignment: 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.

Joomla Integration

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).

There different extension downloads for Joomla 3.x and 2.5.x or older. VideoWhisper also provides older extensions for older Joomla 1.5.x but does NOT recommend, support or plan to provide updates for that version. VideoWhisper recommends using latest Joomla 3.x : Latest application versions, most features and future updates are planned only for Joomla 3.x .

Joomla integration for this video streaming software is based on a joomla component and a joomla module that can be used as needed.

Module lists deparments (as configured) and links to create / manage departments for users.
