As much as I would like to help I just don't have the time right now to go through each chat box. All I can tell you is that I was very frustrated with each one of them and I ended up coming back to this one..

The problems I had initially with this one were really css problems with the style being used.

In reality it only takes a few minutes to install and configure any one of these chat boxes.. I would say to just try each one and see which one you like best. As far as resources go though it really depends on the features and the settings you use. You can really bare-bone this if you want and it doesn't cause much of a problem..

In my opinion this one is the best and it is just my opinion..sorry I can't give you pros and cons..

Thanks,
Richie

Hey guys, I am fairly certain this can be used to post videos but what about youtube videos?? Is there any way to embed videos??

I have a client that wanted fc integrated into 4.1 and it is a no go.. I was hoping to use this instead. What do you guys think about using this as a FlashChat alternative??

The client also wants to be able to post videos and audio as well..

One other thing--Why doesn't the "BBCOde" button appear in the full page chat window??

Finally--Has anyone written and tweaks or addons for this? If so would you be willing to share with your work with me? I will be glad to do the same..

Thanks,
Richie

youtube videos do work...just have to allow bbcode and just force type in [youtube]youtubeID[/youtube]

I used FC for a bit, but I didn't like how I couldn't integrate it anywhere else. Like I want my chat on my front portal page. Other than that it was a pretty nice chat overall.

We've been having an issue where the chatbox will randomly stop refreshing... Searching the posts, it looks like others have had the same issue, but I haven't seen any real solutions to the problem.

Keeping an eye on it, Firebug tells me it aborted while trying to post to mgc_cb_evo_ajax.php, giving me "AJAX Error: Status = -1: transaction aborted".

For now, my solution is just to add a setInterval up at the top of the mgc_cb_evo_functions.js that checks every minute whether the autorefresh is still going, and if not, restarts it. That's just a patch, but I'll look around and see if I can figure out what the real problem is. If the real solution has been lost in the thread somewhere, please let me know, otherwise I'll post up what I find if I figure something out.

Here's something worth updating the first post: a video demo of mod usability from a live installation.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ti6DOa2sppM

If a screenshot is worth 1000 words, a video capture is worth a bazillion. This answers hanging questions on features such as support for colors, text size, and formatting.

Since I finally saw this instead of reading 400 pages about it or a nondescript bullet point list, I might go ahead and install it. Now I am convinced of the value.

Not sure why but the refresh hangs up a lot causing my users to have to hit F5. Also I've had to disable the commands as anyone using a command such as /slap, even from the drop down menu will cause chat to lock up entirely until I go into the archives and delete the offending command. then all is back to normal.
