View Full Version : Timed video chat session with "credit" payment system

hey guys,

I'm setting up a site that is structured much like an online dating service. The user purchases credits and is able to use them to engage in a video chat with another user.

Now, the site is html based but, when a user chooses to enter into a video chat session, he submits his credits and is directed to another html page that contains the video and chat areas as flash movie (connected to a flash communication server).

Once time runs out, an html message window would pop up asking if the user wants to continue the session (for additional credits) or if they would like to end it. If they continue, they submit more credits and continue chatting. If they choose to end the session, they are directed back to another html page.

In other words, most of the programming is done within the html/asp code. I'd like to keep the flashcomm programming to a miniumum.

I'm not the most advanced-level programmer so I need to know the simplest way to do this. Am I on the right track?

Thanks very much for your help. I really appreciate it!
