Bear in mind guys that the chat room isn't integrated with the site yet, so I don't have a way to assign moderators. This means that you could encounter people abusing it and there is no way currently to ban them. When I do the site rebuild we will be able to control it fully.
This isn't a big problem, just got to be aware of it.
So if you encounter any nude harmonica players HarmonicaClub.com can't be held responsible
I've become a bit wary of installing the other chat room permanently. The level of support was very poor when I went asking them questions, and they are pretty new on the market.

Big Blue Button seems to have a track record, and a large community of supporters/users/developers which means they will definately be updating and maintaining their product. I ran into problems before when the software we were using went obsolete, so I'm a bit cautious now
Just got talking to Keith, seemed to work pretty well. Nice to get chatting with him after all this time
The old chat room is still available to us but I'd like to give this one a go first. The other room required participants to set up a conference call even when they were logged in. That's why you were unable to get my attention Pete. This new room is more like the room we had way back in the day.
There are a couple of tutorial videos available when you enter the room. I'll post them here for convenience.
I leave the chat room open in another tab when I'm online. The problem is that you cant actually sit in the chatroom and wait for someone to come in. It works like conference calling where you have to call someone who is online and then they have to accept. It's not as user friendly as the old chat room we had.
I'm going to try something new that I think might work a bit better. I'll change the links here to point the the new chat room. There is no login required, you just need to pick a username. Its at this address.
Just out of curiosity try this link guys
Its a kind of chat room geared toward online classes and distance learning.
It seems to work very well. I'm mainly curious as to how long the link stays active.
I nominate Dezzy as chat room support personnel
Was able to connect with Dezzy today. This doesn't seem to work consistently but here are some pictures of what you can expect to see. Sound quality was bad for me but Dezzy seemed to think it wasnt so bad on his end. There are some adjustments I can make at the back end but I need to do some more reading

I can't get any farther than being in the cr then I get messages that I am unable to have peer-to-peer connections or some such shit. I tried the Firefox, but like I said could only get in, couldn't communicate. Ho-Hum
FireFox should work but check have you got the latest version. You can also try Chrome or Opera. I think I was on Opera when I met Sarge in there.
Seen Pete in there but didn't manage to connect. I have to go tot work now guys but keep playing around with it and let me know how you get on.
I currently have the Chat Room set up at HarmonicaClub.org this is a different domain to HarmonicaClub.com so you will have to register again for that site.

I had the same problem Dezzy, iPad wont show allow or deny options, I spoke with the support guy and said he doesn't think it works with iPads. He said it should work with android tablets however.
I just spoke with Sarge in the room, so it is working. Sarge seemed to be hearing me fine but I had some issues with the sound being garbled from his end. There are bandwidth settings that I can adjust that may help.
But it was good to see it working and chat with Sarge. I should have taken a screen shot.
