Video chat testing

1. Log in to the server web-interface



2. Select “Video Chat” from the menu on the left side of the page



3. Enter the nickname for the first user in the “Login” field and click the “Join” button



4. Copy the link from the “Invite” field



5. Open the copied link in a new window. Enter the nickname for the second user in the “Login” field and click the “Join” button



6. Done! Users share picture and sound. In our example, testing is carried out on one computer using a virtual camera that plays the video, so the picture is the same for both users
