I saw Meebo mentioned recently, but has anyone tried it yet? How hard is it to install?

Meebo is ok, very easy to install - much prefer mibbit though (www.mibbit.com

Does anyone know of a live chat that allows members to share images while they talk?

I see 123flashchat is leading the poll but no one has actually mentioned it within the thread, can anyone shed some light on it, I'm on there page however if it were my product I would obviously tell everyone its great, I would like to hear from fellow vBulletin admin how intensive it is on the server, as I currently use flashchat which knocks the load up quite a bit.

All the server side solutions including flash will greatly increase your server load once more than a few people join the room. How many you could handle depends on a lot of factors, but in general I wouldn't count on a shared server to support more than 5 or so during busy times.

I recently added AddonChat free. It works, and zero server load since they host the chat on their servers, but the free version is sorely lacking in features.

AddOnChat is what I'm looking to get because I'm going to need the ability to moderate chats.

Do not go with v3chat right now.
I found a serious exploit which can allow anyone to compromise your site.
Also searched Google for users and see alot of Index of/ links so someone
else apparently has found the same exploit who isnt as friendly as I.

For v3chat owners, I would advise disabling it until the exploit is resolved.
Please dont PM me for the exploit. I have already notified v3chat.

We've used the Addonchat free version for a couple years and it's worked good. Not much control in the free version though. Their customer support was quick to answer when we had an issue. We are about to integrate a paid chat into our new vb forum.

As for the question about a chat the allows sharing of images. 123Flashchat has that option module for $99 more.

How is the customer service with 123Flashchat? So 123Flashchat is run on our server? We have a dedicated server with 28,000 members and maybe 15 to 20 in chat at one time now. The load issue is important to us.

I just paid around 70 for blab! chat software and think it is amazing. Integrated perfectly and they have guides to help you along the way, and to integrate it with your forum properly.

Thanks to their guides, i now have a chatroom that opens inside my forums design, shows how many people is online inside it, has passworded rooms and non passworded rooms, a VERY clean and easy to use Admin CP, and members can upload photos/videos etc whilst chatting. Very happy customer!

Not cheap at $100, but I'd like to hear more. Their website just goes in circles but never actually tells us how to integrate blab! with vb. Where are the instructions?
