Working with online video gets easier every day, and now social video site Paltalk has made it simple to add video chat rooms to your website. You can meet with a group of your customers all at once to explain a product or show how to use a new feature.
The company has just released the Video Chat Widget and the Embeddable Video Chat Room, both of which let members add video chat to their site in about two minutes, Paltalk says. The widget offers a view into a Paltalk room you’ve created, where up to six viewers can see what’s going on and input through text. The embeddable room offers a fully customized video chat room experience, where viewers can fully take part in the conversation. Setting up a room in Paltalk is free.
Because chat rooms can easily get out of hand, Paltalk is also offering a full suite of administrative controls for the embeddable chat room. Is someone being inappropriate in your room? Boot them out.
The Streaming News
Paltalk is also taking its video expertise and creating its own online news network, starting today. Unlike static news sites, Paltalk News Network lets viewers interact and share opinions with video. The network offers a collection of video feeds, which live on both the Paltalk site as well as on the sites of its various hosts. The company is currently looking for news and commentary contributors.
