In this tutorial we show how to make a call from a website, and also how to connect to TrueConf video conference using visicall protocol.

Video call

Website visitor who has TrueConf application (including mobile versions) installed can make a video call to any TrueConf user from any page by following the link:

<a href="visicall:trueconf_id@trueconf_server_name">Call</a>

Following this kind of a link TrueConf client application will open and the current user will be called.

Use cases:

  • Video call (TrueConf Online):

    <a href="visicall:petr@trueconf.com">Call</a>

  • Video call (TrueConf Server):

    <a href="visicall:petr@video.mycompany.ru">Call</a>

Entering the group video conference

TrueConf Server users can use links starting with visicall: to join group video conferences by calling specific CID (Conference ID), which is assigned to scheduled conferences in TrueConf Server admin panel:

<a href="visicall:ConferenceID@server.name#vcs&conftype=multi">Join multipoint conference</a>

, where ConferenceID is the conference identifier, which is assigned on a conference creation, server.name is the name of the server on which the conference is being held.

Use case:

<a href="visicall:4221d84f46@video.mycompany.ru#vcs&conftype=multi">Join multipoint conference</a>

ConferenсeID is displayed in TrueConf Web Manager on Сreate Group Conference page:
