Videochat access not working on Google Chrome 47 after update 4 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 74  
As planned since several months Google and W3C have completed the transition regarding access to the webcam and microphone devices, from now on starting with Chrome 47 in order to access webcam and microphone an https website is required: https://sites.google.com/a/chromium.org/dev/Home/chromium-security/deprecating-powerful-features-on-insecure-origins

It will be a requirement from now on, for privacy and security reasons, to have an SSL certificate installed on the website in order to allow browser and users to access the webcam and mic devices(at least for Google Chrome).

Moreover ensure to have updated your JChatSocial Enterprise to the version 2.6.1 that includes compatibility changes for Google Chrome 47.

This means that it won't be possible anymore to gain access to hardware devices such as webcam ad microphone on insecure websites not having an https SSL certificate enabled. For the moment this is effective starting from Google Chrome 47, but in future it will be probably extended to all browsers because the intent is to reach a secure Web 3.0 made only by https websites. At the time of writing, accessing webcam and hardware on insecure websites is still possible using Google Chrome 46 or previous versions, Firefox and Opera.

Hi Jeff

You need also to update the component to version 2.6.1 to work on Google Chrome 47 after the recent update by Google. Ensure to clear the browser cache after the update. Having an SSL certificate it will continue to work. This technology is evolving continuosly, all the possible has already been done to ensure compatibility.

Hi John

Thanks for the response. I will try what you suggested. I did note, however, the page that was loading was mixed ssl, which may have been interfering with the video player. I've stripped the page of insecure items and will try again later.
