This project involves upgrading an existing Joomla integration for VideoWhisper.com Live Streaming (Joomla components and modules).
+ Users can create/manage channels depending on permissions and existing details (see Backend and http://www.videowhisper.com/?p=Joomla+Video+Live+Support rooms as sample)
- Permissions to define who can broadcast: If already a broadcaster online, user is logged in as watcher
- Delete Files: delete all room files (from uploads/room folder)
- Browse Logs: lists all logs files and allows opening, deleting each one
+ Each snapshot is saved with different name (timestamp) and included in log as for 2 way video chat. Snapshots will be saved in new folders based on log name (snapshots/Log12-Feb-25/) so when deleting a certain log, its snapshots are also deleted.
+ New module that shows a live channel with parameters (select just video/watch interface, fill channel name or pick from popup list): VideoWhisper Live Channel
- Admins can create, manage and configure channels and channel templates (rooms that can be replicated by fronted users depending on permissions)
- When defining template webmaster can also specify how many rooms of that type can users create and total credits that can be used in all these rooms per month (0 = unlimited)
- new component and module parameters (will be provided - like codec settings)
- groups support: if Jomsocial is detected (installed and enabled) groups can be used when defining room permissions in fronted or backend
* Bandwidth credits mode
- room setting: Credits Mode: Time / Bandwidth (Minutes/Mb)
+ calculate, save and display (in admin room list) bandwidth Mb/min per stream for each room based on streaming settings (maxCamBandwidth in bytes/s) + sound settings http://askmeflash.com/article/2/speex-vs-nellymoser (from kbps, divide by 8 to get kb/s)
- room setting: Maximum Bandwidth Capacity: 10 (Mb/s)
+ Calculate and display maximum room capacity based on bandwidth. Each user will require a multiplier of stream bandwidth depending on application type (for Live Streaming 1 stream per user).
+ At runtime min(room capacity,bandwidth room capacity) is used as room_limit.
