Instant Secure and Anonymous One-to-One Video-Conferencing Across Devices with Gruveo

Instant Secure and Anonymous One-to-One Video-Conferencing Across Devices with Gruveo | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Gruveo is a secure and free web app which allows you to easily start a video-conference session with anyone without needing to register, download, install or login anything. 


To start a video session you simply input a numeric code (of three or more digits) of your choice on the Gruveo home page and then communicate that code to anyone you want to video call. That's it. Your computer and the other device will automatically create a direct connection allowing your video conversation to start instantly.



An excellent solution for instant video calls that require zero set-up time and which may benefit from secure encrypted communication and anonymity.



Free to use.

Robin Good's insight:



Awesometalk is a new free web service which makes it extremely easy to have a one-to-one or multi-party video-conference without the need to install, setup, register or login anything.

You simply head-on to Awesometalk.com and without needing to click anything you are instantly provided with a link that you can share with anyone to meet and videoconference with you.


You share the link and as soon as someone else joins the specified link the videoconference starts automatically. The UI is basically non-existent with the only two things in view being, the video feed of other callers and a button that appears just in-time to end the call.

Instant Clutter-Free Real-Time Video and Web Collaboration with Kollaborate.io | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:


Kollaborate.io is a full-featured real-time collaboration app which allows you to instantly meet with customers, students or teammates without needing to login, install or download anything.


Kollaborate.io integrates video conferencing, VoIP, whiteboarding, document and image sharing, text chat, as well as the ability to auto-archive content and to easily invite other people into a meeting.


Whatever you load, resize or move on the collaboration desktop is also resized and repositioned for everyone else. Everyone sees the same thing.


One unique feature of Kollaborate.io is its clutter-free interface, which completely disappears in the background when it is not needed. 


Definitely worth a try.

Browser-based real-time video group chat and screen-sharing.

Robin Good's insight:



Talky.io is a new free web app that allows you to videoconference and screen-share with your contacts easily.


There is no registration or login required. You simply name a collaboration room and you are instantly inside it. From there you can share the URL of your unique room with anyone you want to meet, and utilize both webcam and audio as well as screen-sharing facility to collaborate together.


Talky.io leverages WebRTC technology and it is only available if you use Chrome or Firefox.


Still in beta. May not work perfectly. In my brief test everything run smoothly and the quality of video and audio was particularly good. The only issue was a lack of sync between audio and video for my counterpart. On the other hand my video and audio were OK on his end.


Free to use.

Live Web Presentations with Six-Party VideoConferencing: Free with MightyMeeting

Live Web Presentations with Six-Party VideoConferencing: Free with MightyMeeting | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



MightyMeeting is a free HTML5 web app which allows you to present live on the web any PowerPoint or PDF file with the support of video-conferencing facility for up to six people and live annotation tools.


Check 1-min video here: http://youtu.be/6XvL-r63gLc


There is no limit to the number of participants you can invite as, MightyMeeting effectively downoads your presentation to each participant and then synchronizes your moves within it.


The host can decide whether video-conferencing is active or not, and whether other participants can contribute and upload their own files.


MIghtyMeeting presentations can be seen across all kind of devices, screen sizes and operating systems without issues.


A handy "portfolio" function allows the presenter to see all of the slides available next to the one being displayed.


*Videoconferencing, powered by WebRTC technology, works only with the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox.


My comment: Ready to use after 30 seconds of browsing. Super-easy, requires no downloads or plugins and works across all devices. A very handy collaboration tool.

Not recommended when presenting very large files and having other participants on a slow connection. On the desktop, if you use it in full screen, remember that you need to "swipe" with your mouse to move inside your presentation..

Free Videoconferencing, Collaborative Viewing and Screencasting with Rabbit



Robin Good's insight:



Rabbit is a (Mac-only) video-conferencing, collaboration and synch-viewing downloadable software which allows you to text chat, video-conference, view clips and images together with others and to screencast your own screen.


Rabbit is characterized by offering the opportunity to create private "meeting rooms" in which to invite and collaborate with others. Rooms are designed in beautiful, creative ways giving more space to the human aspect rather than to the technical one.


You can video chat with up to 10 guests simultaneously (plus you) and benefit from the innovative conferencing layout offered by Rabbit, where video feeds can be placed around a shared content or laid out in other alternative ways.


With Rabbit it is possible to real-time share any content from YouTube, Hulu, Spotify (audio sharing), Vimeo and more, as well as to screencast any open application you have on your computer.


Free to use.

Group Video Chat, IM and Screen-Sharing of Movies and Applications with Rabbit

Robin Good's insight:


Rabbit is a new downloadable software app (for Mac only now) that allows you to instant message, video conference with multiple parties and to screencast and share in real-time any music, video clip or app.



"Today, a startup company called Rabbit is launching a closed beta of their "video chat and content sharing application".


But the best way to describe it is a cool and very modern implementation of instant messaging.

The most compelling feature of the app can be distilled down to this: group video conferencing with the ability to screencast music, movies and applications from your Mac.

This means you can watch a movie from a service such as Netflix with your friends in real time. Or you can crop and share a specific part of your web browser or any other Mac app and broadcast it to your friends.

The app is a native Mac client (other platforms to come later), and offers the ability to video chat with an unlimited number of people. People are grouped into Rooms and presented to you in priority based on your own friends, and within each room, individual groups can participate in their own conversations."

Some, as good as Vidyo or Zoom.us may provide HD quality video and even full support for mobile platforms. Others, like MeBeam or Sinfor offer bare-bone ad-supported solutions that have zero frills but can do the job if you need an immediate, zero-cost solution.

Find and Share Contextual Info While You Videoconference with Mindmeld (iPad)

Robin Good: Mindmeld is an upcoming iPad app which allows you to conference in real-time with other people with video and audio, and to find relevant related information about the things that are being mentioned in your talk.

As you are video-conferencing you can tap a light bulb icon which powers a background search on the terms being mentioned in your conversation. By sliding the conferencing pane to the left, you can then reveal a information page that lists both the key terms being mentioned, as well as related information pins, on the very topics being identified.

You can also type in manually any term or topic you would like to see more info on, and immediately share any relevant info block with everyone else in the meeting.


"MindMeld is an iPad app (for now) that uses Facebook’s open graph and identity to help create quick audio or video conferences. Add a few people and start talking. But here is where things get interesting: As you speak (or other participants speak), the app listens and starts surfacing information pertaining to what you are talking about."

Robin Good: The guys at Vline are busy developing a new tool that will allow any developer to integrate a videoconferencing app on any web site without ever needing to use Flash or other plugins.


By leveraging the original Google Web RTC project, which provided an open framework for enabling RTC in the browser, the small team at Vline began building a tool that bundles together all the technology required to build video conferencing capacity into an inexpensive and easy-to-use package without using Flash or requiring you to be logged in into Google.


From the official site:


1) Add video chat and instant messaging to your app with a few lines of Javascript or Objective-C.


2) Built from the ground up for the new HTML5 video conferencing standard (no Flash or plugins required).



From VentureBeat: "VLine, a cloud video conferencing platform for developers, showcased its platform for the first time yesterday at the Google developer conference.


It also revealed raising $1.5 million in seed funding from Kleiner Perkins and Harrison Metal.


VLine enables web and mobile developers to integrate high quality, video conferencing into their applications without using Flash or plug-ins.


...


During the beta period over the next several months, the product will be free of charge."
