Tinychat V2 is live!

Man oh man did that take a while!
We promise it was worth it. The new tinychat has video/audio/screensharing and much more. You have moderator ability now plus HD video, recording, screencasting, broadcast passwords and live shows! 12 users in a conference doing video, 100+ doing chat!

All in all good stuff, go try it out!

    So first in is moderator? My login for pro isn’t working and the embed isn’t working on blogger.

    What does it mean if only 1 of my friends can get into my room when no one else can? I’ve even had her send me an e-mail invite but the link still brings me to the old version chat.

    I’ve deleted all my cookies/temp files. Changed my settings to check for new webpages everytime. What am I missing? Thanks

    Got my login to work, embed still isn’t blogger and flash issue perhaps? Logs saved goes to a website url says can’t find…looks good I’m sure a bit of polishing the bugs away will make it great!

    I’m still concerned over first in having the ability to kick folks – I know it’s not true irc but in a large room of pissy people if everyone has that ability or first in who shouldn’t have the ability it could get ugly.

    also…sadly this is important…the smileys don’t work.

    I’m working from my link not an embed.

    I feel very fustrated right now lol I’ve been waiting for version 2 for weeks and now that it’s here I can’t get to it…it keeps loading the old one. So far 3 out of 12 (of my friends) have gotten into it. I dunno how they managed it…we have all did the same tricks. I’m sure its just some stupid setting that’s causing it to not load the new webpage but for the life of me I can’t figure it out.

    Sorry for the rant but if you have any suggestions, I’m all ears! Thank you

    It might take a hour or so for your browser to show the new version of tinychat- Its a domain issue and we just changed to a new server.

    Hi there, great service. Only one thing tho – can you make the automtic tweet optional? I dont always want to tell the world that I’m chatting.
    Cheers

    Ehem.. what have you done that tinychat wents from great to dysfunctional?

    I get stuck connecting. And connecting. And connection.

  12. Posted May 28, 2009 at 6:26 am | Permalink

    Damn. Right now I need tinychat badly. And the function is totally gone. (lot of swearing involved, right now)

    The embed is to large for the average website. I have no clue how to activate the administrator commands. There is no hint on the website either. Room starter controls offers me nothing. Not sure if there is a series of / commands etc. But it would be nice to see this covered somewhere so users could learn how to easily interact with the product. Not everyone is an elitegeek with esp to help figure out how you want them to use it.

    the old chat was rather my idea of chat.

    Hi,
    thx for the improvement i really like your chat.
    I prefered the layout before and it becomes a little bit slow, but all in all it´s a really great tool🙂

    thx

    I know the last update stated there would be an IRC proxy in place, is there currenty anyway to connect to tinychat now via my existing IRC client? I would be much more likely to use it if that ability is there.

    I don’t like how there is no longer notification of unread messages in the title bar/tab that the chat is open in – it makes it basically impossible to use without leaving the chat open on your screen at all times if you have the sound off on your computer.

    Goodbye Tinychat.

    Tinychat v1 was a great tool for quick chat conferences. The Ajax-Interface worked neatly with most modern browsers. It worked also behind most firewalls.

    Tinychat v2 didn’t connect from behind a firewall. Possibly there are now more ports involved than just Port 80. (I guess, the flash-interface tries to establish a jabber-connection.. a port, that is surely often blocked for people working from libraries or other public internet access points.)

    Trying Tinychat again from my home pc, my freebsd box, just showed me a blank screen. The quick Ajax-Interface was shunned in favor of a flash interface. Great. GREAT!

    This means to me: half the day I cannot use Tinychat because the library-access won’t allow connects, the other half because of the bloated flash-interface.

    Tinychat isn’t tiny anymore. And a blank screen isn’t a chat either.

    So goodbye. Another great project dying the over-feature-death.

    can’t get the chat pages to load in firefox

    I’ll throw in my 2 pence here…

    I want to like this, but feel like I shouldn’t have paid today. There doesn’t seem to be a support forum, so I’ll post issues here (is that wrong?)

    1. I can’t seem to be able to share my desktop and record at the same time.

    2. It’s not really ‘sharing’ of a desktop if no one else can interact with it – it’s broadcasting a desktop (which is useful, but it’s not sharing)

    3. The ‘record’ a session – just says it was recorded, but doesn’t say how to play anything back (is it saved on my drive? how do I play it back?)

    4. If I share the desktop, then someone else logs in to the chat, they don’t see a link to view my desktop, because the ‘view my desktop’ link just shows up in the chat as a regular part of the transcript. If someone missed it, they missed it and are outta luck.

    These are just a few of the things that make this feel less than ready for prime time. I certainly understand growing pains, but felt like it should have been more polished before you were in a position to take money for the service. Or, at the very least, had a real support forum set up to take issues like this.

  21. Posted May 31, 2009 at 10:01 am | Permalink

    I echo the above (#20) comments. Where is the support forum, how to get the recorded video?

    You should have a user video that simply takes people through the steps of using tinychat.

    Also, make twitter optional. All the rest PERFECT! Why not use uservoice for getting feedback?

    Keep up the good work and also, file sharing should allow more than 1mb uploading…..

    Cheers,

    David

    If your going to charge people for the upgraded version of Prochat, you should at least have some type of online support or a help FAQ. Otherwise your just taking our money and running. Lots of comments on this thread over the last week and I dont see much of a response from the owners. Why should we continue to pay.

  23. Posted June 3, 2009 at 11:13 am | Permalink

    Well, I’m going to ask for a refund and write this up as an example of getting real way too fast.

    Pro rooms keep crashing Firefox browsers. No where to go for help. Can record but can’t “view” video. There is also no way to brand or personalize the room at all…..

    Tinychat, wish you the best and hope you address these issues to make yourself atleast a standard web based business….

    I used to love tinychat. I turned several friends onto it. We loved it cuz it was light and simple. NO COOKIES too.

    Now it has cookies and I cannot get rid of them. Tell me how to rid my PC of tinychat cookies. It cannot be done from mozilla browser tools or manually going to the usually places on the PC: Internet temp file, temp files, local settings, history. Nor can the tinychat cookies be deleted via the usual Microsoft tools: control panel?internet options, start up menu/clear web pages, document, everything accessed.

    There were and are plenty of other software and web tools that have all the cameras, voice, and crap. Tinychat is no longer “Tiny” and that’s not good.
