Testing the video chat in a browser

Let’s test the video chat between Chrome and Firefox browsers using virtual cameras (you can use conventional web cameras too).



We open a video chat window in Chrome, then in Firefox and finally make a call from Chrome to FF

For testing purposes we use the demo at and the Demo / Video Chat section.

We open a page in the Google Chrome browser, enter data and click the ‘Connect’ button. As a result, the browser establishes connection with the server


In the ‘Login’ field we specify an arbitrary user name User1 that we use for the video call.

Then, we open the same window in Firefox and specify User2 as the username. Further, we make a call from one browser to the other (from User1 to User2). In the callee browser we click ‘Answer’ and end up with the established video chat.

User interface of the User1 video chat:


User interface of the User2 video chat:


You can finish the video chat clicking the Stop or Hangup buttons. The interfaces then return to their initial state.

Therefore, we have tested the video chat in Chrome and Firefox browsers using the WebRTC technology.

Browser video chat can be integrated to your website or web service. This process is explained in all details in the Embedding section.
