TokBox & EtherPad (YC S07): Video Chat Gets Real-Time Document Editing

by Alexis Ohanian8/28/2009

TokBox is one of the most fully-featured video chat platforms available. Like TinyChat, ooVoo, and other services, it has a close connection with social networks and other forms of sharing content. But it didn’t have the kind of document-handling capabilities that could make it useful for more than just talking with friends and family or holding meetings. Now that’s changed, because by integrating with EtherPad, you can now collaborate on documents in real time right within a TokBox group chat. Soon you’ll also be able to add TokBox video chats to your private company EtherPads as well.
