We'd recommend checking out Janus webrtc. It worked well for us, and will work on mobile/firefox. We've used it for years, and it's well developed. Video rooms up to 6 people too, so you could have more options for games
The chess board and the camera space are about 100 px of height.
There are a bunch of error messages in the developer console, it seems to start with permission denial to read localStorage.
Version 80.0.3987.149 (Developer Build) built on Debian 10.3, running on Debian 10.3 (64-bit)
I voiced this to a friend and he suggested to just create a simple webpage that has a controller and viewer, nothing fancy. Tied together with Shortcuts I was hoping to make a one-click button that initiated a FaceTime call and opened the webpage in fullscreen. The latter part seems harder, due to limitations in Shortcuts, but so far I've successfully been able to have her press the Home-button and then click the bookmark for this service to open the viewer. Perhaps a Jitsi Meet integration is just what I need.
Being able to view pictures this way has been truly amazing. My dad has digitized a lot of old pictures, and it's so engaging for her to explain what farm a given picture was taking on, and who is in the picture. Things like that. She really enjoys it. I don't understand how this isn't built into FaceTime or something similar. Seems like such an obvious thing.
Shameless plug, and be warned it's quite bandwidth intense, in true disruptive start-up fashion it lacks everything, like optimization and security: https://github.com/vegardx/abuela
The whole point here wasn't to make a slick single click install, but a prototype that works. And then iterate from there.
I might later make a telnet service for playing a card game (including also tarot cards, mahjong, Fanucci, etc), so that you can play a card game too, rather than only a chess game.
You may whant to set this override on the iframe API: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/interface_co...
So they're playing two different games while watching each other.
The room name is sufficiently long and unique. What might we be doing wrong?
Edit: Looks like either a change at chessbase or a misunderstanding on my part that didn't manifest until the world hit it :/ I've put a message on the site and plan to roll my own based on socket.io and chessboard.js soon. Thanks for letting me know!
Does anyone know a good app or website for private poker games?
Must support up to 12 players.
I know of pokerrr2 and apparently pokerstars had something (but requires facebook ugh).
Yes there’s any number of chess apps. This felt more personal and real.
Made one similar a few days ago.
It requires login, and is based on webrtc.
Free for up to 6 people.
Maybe if your video technology is good you can work at an agreement with the sites that already have them. A video chat could be something they could pay for.
A partnership would be great, since we could cross promote, and I'm sure a lot of people are looking to try new games.
Also .. does "billed yearly" mean you have to pay at least 12 months worth?
There's a monthly and yearly, but likely we'll end up charging less for this when it actually launches. How much would be appropriate like $2/m? We want to make the video rooms free up to 6 people, and only charge for developing extra premium games.
Ours works in firefox/mobile for video chat no problem, but still may have some bugs.
I suggest the author try to experiment with adding some extra features allowing chess teachers to draw moves on canvas (arrows showing piece movements, highlighting cells via keyboard combos, drawing by hand, etc.)
