Recently a new script for video chat come out, Gyaro, it looks a bit like Gchats, but the big advantage is that the red5 app doesn’t connect to the script database, this renders it more stable. We tested also the new script Gyaro with wowza and it works great, this means better quality then Red5 can provide and theoretically there are no limits to the number of online simultaneous users, one single server and you can have 2000 online users!
Gyaro vs Visichat/Gchats vs Avchat vs Videowhisper
At Hosting Marketers we have lots of experience with video chat sites, we working on them since 2005, actually we were the first hosting company offering Red5 on shared hosting plans. Many times our customers have asked for advice on buying a video chat software, normally we would advice for the gchats, because although the look of avchat is more trendy and much easier on the red5 we never seen an avchat script with over 100 users simultaneously online, I don’t say they don’t exist, I’m sure they do, but I never seen it on our servers, red5 crashes before that, not sure why, perhaps it uses too much RAM? Not sure but for a busy site avchat is not the solution, the same can be said about videowhisper script, nice, very trendy, but simply not reliable for high traffic sites.
That is why we had to recommended gchats script, not easy to work with, every time we change the red5 server, we have to ask permission from gchats, I think nowadays they even charge $20 for a change of IP if done more then 5 times a year.
Then the Gchats needs special settings on the red5 and on the MYSQL because the visichat application connects to the MYSQL. All this said gchats in my opinion will not work well when more then 200-250 users online. It is better then videowhisper and avchat, but falls short comparing it to the new Gyaro script. Gyaro seems to me at this stage more secure against hackers, more stable, and if using a wowza RTMP can easily reach 600-700 users without any special server or degrade on the chat quality.
For these reasons Hosting Marketers is happy to recommend Gyaro to its customers!
