I'm looking for a video chat system that supports 1 on 1 chats and does not require any logins.

Currently we use Google Hangouts or Skype for interviews, but we can't always assume the candidate will have a Google account or have Skype installed. Yes we can always make people download and/or create accounts prior to the interview, but we'd like something that doesn't take any work on the interviewees end.

Are there any web services that support this? Any APIs available that we can build a simple web portal around? Paid is ok, but free is preferred.

Also, no fancy features needed. We just need two people to be able to see and talk to each other. I.E., no need for text chat, file sharing, etc.


AwesomeTalk does this. From my experience with it, it works very well, the video and audio quality is clear and I've noticed little to no stuttering or lag. It's just as you ask, nothing fancy, just straight 1 to 1 video chat. Works on all major browsers and even has a chrome extension.

  • Free
  • No login/signup
  • Disposable private urls
  • www.awesometalk.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate expired on 2/28/2015 1:50 PM, <- This is probably not inviting to people about to have a video conference – Tom Jul 24 '15 at 22:43

You may try Cisco Webex Meeting. You can invite anybody and you can send the meeting invite to their email id. No logins, no signup for the candidates.

You can do screen-sharing, control-desktop, video chat, join the audio conference via computer, dial in via phone or get a call from Webex.

PS :

  1. There is free version where up to to 3 people can join, you need to explore the possibility of the video chat in the free version.
  2. Citrix GotoMeeting is also an similar alternative

You can look at SignalRTC, it's a video chat web application (no need to install anyting, no browser plugins), which uses WebRTC and SignalR, works only on Chrome and Firefox, not IE. I didn't check other browser.

No registration, user can enter any name.

Disclaimer: I'm developer of this web app and now it's in development process, probably alpha version.


I would use appear.in
