Hi,

I have a website and quite a few members have suggested that adding a chat room would be a great idea.

I'm searching for something I might be able to integrate well into my site.

Has anyone tried RumbleTalk or C-box?

Well I started researching on my own then. I made a lot of research in
finding a chatroom for my website. I used envolve for a
while till they closed up, pitty. I tried IRC but I truly did not like
the look and feel and the “mess” of text in there.
I had several points which are important to me.
1
– First I needed a chat that can be seen in mobile (all versions) so I
narrowed down the search for html5 chat room that look good on both
mobile and pc.
2 – I needed a custom design, I needed my background to be black or transparent. This was very hard to find (my site is dark).
3 – I do not like to install the chat in my server as this is high cpu and resource consumer. So I need a chat service.
4 – Lastly, I needed the ability to add youtube videos and upload files (technical analysis).
I have checked several chats and only 2 met my needs, RumbleTalk and Cbox.
I choose RumbleTalk finally as it can be integrated into my page and not only as toolbar.

Why not try AJAX chat by blueimp?
It works on mobile also you can make the SQL server not use much ram and cpu

If you want optimization tips on your server feel freee to ask me on skype (Check the side of this post)

PS Use Nginx + php-fpm + Mariadb
APACHE SUCKS


Someone runs a website with 10k+ daily visitors and a big forum while having a chat script on a 256 mb ram vps also they ran an image hosting service before :P
