HIRING: Voice Chat/Call Feature


(James) #1

What would you like done?
I would like a voice chat/call feature. E.g. there’s a button on a user’s profile that says “Call” and you could start a voice call with the user, including group calls.

When do you need it done?
No time frame.

What is your budget, in $ USD that you can offer for this task?
We’ll discuss this.

Is there a specific API you’re wanting to use for this? Seems like overkill to rebuild a video structure.

@joebuhlig I’ve heard Mumble is good for this. Here’s the general idea:

For example:

  1. I press the Call button on John’s profile
  2. The Discourse frontend/plugin notifies John that I’m calling them
  3. On accept, the Discourse plugin hits the Mumble server to make a private room
  4. The Discourse plugin sets the ACLs on the new room so only John and I can connect
  5. The plugin sends a message to the frontend to connect Me and John to the private room

Didn’t skype have a call me button widget you could put on your website? It would show green when logged in and grey when not logged in. Maybe that could be dispayed using a plugin on user cards and user profiles?
