video conference in web browser

Post by macangelo »

Hi all

I'm looking for an application for providing video conferencing in a web browser. As in Skype, visitors can click a button to request a video conference, if anybody is home, the owner of the website will start the video conference. The conference should be private of course. Oh, and it should work without Flash.

Anything you can recommend?

Thanks a lot.
