I am working on a web-app. One of the core features is the ability for two users to initiate a screen share. I am looking for a freelancer to help me implement this.
I am looking to ship an MVP quickly and am open to a variety of options. From my research, I think the most viable is using the TokBok OpenTok SDK.
I played around with the code they provide on their website and was able to get a very basic video chat working. I am missing something with screen share.
I see two simple ways this could be included in my app.
1.) Using Bubble Functionality: build a plug in, or use toolbox to run JS.
2.) Have the screen share code run in it’s own website. For an MVP,if I can get the code running, I’m happy to just have users click a button that takes them to the screen share.
If this is something you could help me out with, I would love to talk.
This should be possible to implement and I would be happy to help you out on this .

If anyone comes across this thread in the future. I ended up using open source code to build a solution. Then when my users need to start a meeting, they press a button and it opens in a separate window. Meeting has chat, screen share, etc. Also costs me next to nothing. Would be open to talking you though it.
Actually super-keen to know why exactly you preferred to build it yourself?
I bet it ended up costing you more than 5$, taking your time into the account.
Is there anything we can add\extend\improve in our plugin for it to be an obvious choice?
Thanks so much for your feedback!
@matt_a I would love to know how you solved this. Was it with Jitsi Meet? I need the same functionality you described.
I would have loved to use a plug in, certainly took more than $5 of my time!
From what I could see, your plug in does not offer true screen sharing. If I am wrong, you may want to address that in your plugin description/comments. I needed my users to be able to share anything on their computer screen - not just co-browse. I wanted to have control over how meetings were started and want to add the ability to time sessions in the future. I figured it would be easier to do this myself.
My solution is powered with open source code from TokBox, Open Tok. I have a very simple front end that allows an admin to create new meetings, share a link, and then have users join. From that point on it looks pretty much like a zoom meeting. Feel free to shoot me a pm if you want to talk more about this.
I would love to implement this please describe the service up process.
Feel free to shoot me a PM and I can help walk you through some of the details.
I’ve been working on implementing a Tokbox solution, however, I am stuck with implementing the screen-sharing and chat functionality. Were you able to include this in your solution? Grateful for any pointers.
I’m really keen to use an implementation like this on my site. Is there anyway for you to share for example sharing the editor page so we can have a look at it.
Hey @matt_a it would be great if you could point me in the direction of how you solved this. Sorry I dont see how to DM but ping me if you do. Otherwise my email is my username @ gmail
Saw your post about implementing screen share. How did you do it?
