Live Chat - Video Chat
A picture says more than 1,000 words, and video chat says more than 1,000 pictures!You can make a live chat offer to members who are currently online. Using the First Affair video chat feature, you can either chat using your keyboard (text chat), and via microphone and webcam you can even make free calls while you look at each other!
If you don't have a microphone or a webcam you can still do live chat. All you need is an up-to-date flash-player.
Make/receive a live chat offer
If you present a live chat offer to someone, it may take a few minutes before that person accepts the invitation.
If you receive a live chat offer (by telegram), you can either accept or reject it.
Access authorisation to live chat
When you make a live chat offer to another member or when you accept an offer, the video chat window opens. You will be asked whether you want to permit access to your webcam and microphone.
Then click on "Permit" and "Save" and then the "Close" button. These settings will be saved, so you won't be asked again.
You can change these settings any time by right-clicking on "Settings" in the chat window.
