Chat is n̶o̶t̶ working!

Yes, it really refuses to show any text you type. Not sure why, not a slightest idea how to fix it.

fucking thing sucks!

It's fixed now. It was not our fault, and it was our fault later after chat itself was fixed.

First this stuff: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/ajax-chat/lZ4xyieZNRk -- basically PHP 5.4 is more strict and chat didn't follow initially in its strictnesses. That's fixed now, but not in any final version yet, you need to download development version for now. I mean download for server, you don't need to download anything for the client.

Second, we were using socket setup and some other settings which did not cooperate well with this new version. Will look into those for any optimization, but it's working fine now. Yes - chat is latest version now, even more, latest dev version.

Added YouTube player!

vg_chat_youtube.png


How to use?
0.) go to http://chat.vogonhq.com/
1.) press the YouTube button and enter full url, ie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3m_mpAIGFVM
-- OR --
2.) in chat enter /yt command followed by the url, ie: /yt http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3m_mpAIGFVM

Script is smart enough to extract video out of all sorts of URLs, and it will default to 480p.

Added /afk command if you are going away (afk = away from keyboard) and want others to know. When you are back and type something, it will rename you back.

- Chat should log you out to this forum, not to log-in page as before. You maybe need to refresh your browser cache or delete cache.
- volume defaults to 20%, it is also possible to adjust under Settings (wrench icon), i added 5% 2% and 1% for those of us with eXXXtremely loud speakers
- you can log in with username and password, more info: Chat login and usernames

Good work, sound problem was huge as I use headset and often have volume set quite high (youtube etc) so more adjustment in chat is great!

Yes, i also set all EQ to high. You know, if you are using headphones, front green jack is recommended. Rear one is for speakers mostly, may not have enough volume. If XP or Linux has more volume than W7 or W8, then set custom Equalizer and all sliders to the max -- it will effectively increase system volume without any distortion. This is needed only with W7/8 and if you are using rear jack. If you use some other than green bass may not be 100%. Yea, it can be fucking complicated -- in short, best for headphones is internally connected front panel green jack. In the rear any other than green may have less bass, and green may have less volume than the front one. Sometimes it helps to use latest audio drivers, especially if you have separate sound card.

This applies to desktops, and stereo headphones.

USB is great too with headphones it supports, usually it's small sound card integrated inside. Some models may have preset equalizer, depends if it's USB sound card or USB you get with some models of headphones which may not be ideal for other models.

MS LifeChat and tbh I recommend it, it was around £30 when I bought it years ago, you can get it for way less now. No complaints at all, I bought it when I was using skype/vent a lot. I think only better one might be something from Sennheiser or Behringer like I use on my mobile DJ rig, but they are not USB, they are DMX plug or large (5.5mm) phono jack depending on which one I use because I have a few different setups.
