How to create a video chat without Adobe flash?


I am in a project in which a video chat will be integrated. I was reading the Wowza Streaming Engine documentation but I can’t find what I’m looking for.

  1. Is it possible to create a video chat with Wowza without using Adobe Flash?
  2. What do I have to use to create a basic video chat between two people or more on a personalized web page?
  3. What knowledge do I have to have to create a video chat with Wowza?

Thank you.

Hi @JOEL REYES, with Adobe Flash being discontinued by 2020, this isn’t a workflow we recommend. What people do now to maintain a similar workflow is create video chats with WebRTC. That is still a browser to browser connection.

I can share some docs with you on how to do this through Wowza:

  1. WebRTC Workflows

  2. Blog on WebRTC use cases

I hope this helps get you started with your video chat workflow. WebRTC can be a bit advanced so don’t hesitate to reach out with a support ticket or you can join our WebRTC Slack channel too.
