Tinychat have made creating chat rooms fast and easy so you can video chat via webcam with your friends and family.
TinyChat started out as a simple IRC-style chatroom app to complement conversations on platforms like Twitter, has been steadily building out its innovative platform to include video chat and screensharing options, live video streaming, and Facebook Connect.
Tinychat.com is owned and operated by Numerl.com LLC, and provides browser-based video chat rooms where you can broadcast from your camera and microphone to anyone who joins your chat room. You can share up to twelve broadcasts simultaneously. With text, video, and audio chat, you and your friends can connect and talk from anywhere to anywhere around the world.
Similar to Chatroulette, you can enter a room with strangers and conduct video chats with random people. When you tire of a person, you can simple move onto the next available user in TinyChat’s chat "Lobby" area.
Some of the great features of this site is that they allow instant messaging and also offers voice and video chat free of charge.
tinychat.com - Provides users the choice of creating disposable or permament video conference rooms. They all have a simple url and capacity for up to 400 live participants and 12 simultaneous live video streams.
p2p.tinychat.com - Enables anyone to easily create a private video call with no signup. When two people go to the same URL (ie. p2p.tinychat.com/myname) together, they are automatically connected and their private call begins.
Tinychat and FaceBook:
Tinychat‘s Facebook video chat application is seeing some solid growth. The app is now the single most used video chat application on the Facebook Platform, with roughly 2.4 million monthly active users according to the application page. That’s about 1.5 million more monthly users than its closest competitor, vChatter.
