    4544Also depending on the client software you choose, starting a '''chatroom''' will vary, in most cases it is "'''Start a Chat Room'''" where you can then invite other buddies into the room. Keep in mind we have tested and verified that these chatrooms are available for buddies to join from other xmpp servers. So you can create a room and invite buddies that use gtalk, @jabber.org, @riseup.net and any other xmpp server that is not closed (i.e facebook chat is closed).

    49 Yes, our instance of ejabberd has the IRC module built in. Use requires additional settings when joining a chatroom.

    51 When you Join a Chat for the please follow the following guide
    52 
    53 {{{
    54 Room: <irc channel>%irc.server.org
    55 Server: irc.im.mayfirst.org (change from conference to irc)
    56 Handle: username or chat name
    57 Password: leave blank
    58 }}}
    59 
    60 if for example one were to enter  in Rooom mayfirst%irc.indymedia.org  and server irc.im.mayfirst.org with a handle mv this would place me into the mayfirst chat room. These instructions are based on the use of Pidgin alterations maybe required for other clients.
    61 
    62 == Can we send files to other chat buddies? ==
    63 
    64 Yes you can but to better facilitate this we recommend using our stun server. Depending on your client the stun server settings will be in different locations.
    65 
    66 For instance in Pidgin the settings are found under
    67 Tools --> Preferences --> Networking
    68 Under stun server add the following

    70 {{{

    72 }}}
    73 
    74 Now when you try to send the files it should work.
    75 
    76 == Does the IM Chat support Audio/Video Support? ==
    77 
    78 For better Audio and Video support we also recommend using our stun server to improve the quality of the sound and video.

    80 Each client for IM has different settings to support, please visit the client page for more details.
