I'm meeting with Chris and Michael, and they suggested we look into Big Blue Button which is an open-source videoconferencing tool. We started to wonder whether it might be integrated into BuddyPress groups so that groups could easily create video conferences among group members.

It looks like there is already a WordPress plugin to provide integration, but I don't think that one has been created for BuddyPress. What do you think about looking into writing that plugin? Might be very cool!

Michael and Chris, by the way, say that Joe Ugoretz uses this and can comment upon it.

Since there might be some server demands involved, I've added André as a watcher (along with Chris and Michael)

  • Target version changed from 1.2 to Future release

The WordPress plugin is pretty complex, which makes me think that it won't be trivial to adapt for BuddyPress. But it looks like the WP plugin might be a good starting point, as it contains endpoints and wrappers for the BBB API.

I'll do some research.

Great. Thanks, Boone.

Yes, thanks Boone. And I agree with the change to future release. This would be cool but I think less important right now than some other things.
