I have a hosted Adobe Flash Media Interactive Server account through [[url removed, login to view]] .? They provide prebuilt applications for video and chat, including source code (although not some of the serverside).?
I want to modify one of those applications, CamChat2.5.? What I want to do is:
1.? Facilitate member creation and normal member login through an external database that relates to other content on my site.? I want to pass username and password variable from the preceeding page of my site, that users will have already logged into, so users don't to log in to the video/chat again.? This sort of feature would seem to be supported in the documentation.? The video and chat would thus be accessible to my site users without further login.
2.? I have multiple rooms, but I want the entry to be direct from to the room, without stopping in the lobby and without the ability to move from room to room based on selections made on a preceeding page.? So I either need variables to identify the room and (presumably) enter a password, or set up multiple instances of the flash app for the various rooms.
3.? I want one of the users (moderator)? to be able to control the cams that are viewed at any particular time.? ? The moderator might display one or two of the moderators cameras, and additionally one or more of the particpants cams, if said participants are showing video.? This functionality relates to my external database.? So, rather than having each user select what cams he or she wants to see, the moderator would enable or disable.? Some similar influxis apps seem to have some of this functionality.
4.? I want to make some modifications to the formatting.? I want to strip out many functions, displaying minimal controls.
I lack the technical knowledge to know what is or is not possible.? Please send me some suggetions as to what you could do.
