There’s some good news for those who always wanted to enjoy a live video chat with more than one friend and at the same time share files with them. New service called Sifonr provides you with such possibility. Moreover, it can also boast a support by Adobe Flash’s latest peer-to-peer technology and the fact that it’s easy to be embedded in any site. The new service can potentially become online communication tool of the next generation.
In fact, the Sifonr service is so new that it can’t even be classified in any of the existing categories of online services. The best description it has got was a multi-user kind of live streaming services like Ustream, supported by peer-to-peer technology, plus providing fully-fledged file-sharing capabilities. The users will only need to make a single click to create a Flash-based live video feed, enabling others to join that feed, send their files and also share them if they want.
The service has got its name from the word “siphon” meaning a U-shaped tube (YouTube). Sifonr employs the most recent peer-to-peer capabilities of Adobe’s Flash. In fact, it can be considered the first site ever to really show off what it provides users with in terms of both file-sharing and real-time communication. Although it won’t be able to compete with any torrent sites, it’s still worth mentioning due to its innovative use of peer-to-peer technology.
Besides video and text chatting, the service also provides its users a possibility to share their files in real-time. Moreover, the Flash-based service embeds just as easily as a YouTube video, which means that you can freely post them to Facebook or your blog (it also boasts styleable features) in order to provide a discussion platform or direct communication channel.
The founder of the service believes that Sifonr represents the way of sharing your personal thoughts and ideas, like on YouTube, but in a more direct and involved way. Instead of becoming another spin-off of live-chat portal, it’s rather seen as a new method of communication.
Starting as a mere simple and logical step of nowadays online interaction, it can easily turn into an amazing social experiment, diminishing the borders between authors and readers, broadcasters and consumers, artists and beholders, and letting all of you be always at the same time. In short words, it may worth trying.
