Anyone could sign in using Persona, and start sending messages to the one chat room.The avatar associated to your Persona account would be shown along with the message you sent, and messages would be deleted after a few minutes.Once the ten frames have been captured, the method from Animated_GIF.This part is probably the most involved of all in the whole process, since we are ultimately generating binary data in Java Script.- Edit your chat room by going to https:my.then click on the 'edit room' link in the 'my room' section.
It is then copied into an internal canvas to extract the image data and store it on a list of frames, taking advantage of the draw Image function that allows you to render HTML elements into Canvas Rendering Context2D objects.
By that time I had been working on rtcamera, a camera app that could generate animated GIFs using your webcam as input, and somehow our thought trails converged: wouldn't it be super cool to use the webcam's input instead of an static avatar?
It was easy to implement this using the two libraries that I had extracted out from : gum Helper and Animated_GIF, and the rest is history! People started coming to the site in flocks and being both puzzled by the unexpected cheerness and the general raw and honest spirit: no sign up forms, no name to fill in, no identity to build and maintain; just a text input and your face to show the world what you were up to in that very moment.
Some room owners prefer that everyone who enters must have their web cam turned on.
They want to see you, and not some animated graphic or text message.
