    Question Multiple Coding Question(s)

    I'm here to ask a question, and I need to know how possible this would be to do. To implement into a custom, original web-page.

    I'm wanting to know if it's possible, using PHP, Javascript and HTML, to be able to make a code that directly accesses your speakers and Microphone, and plays back without RECORDING anything, what you say on your mic, onto everyone's speakers, (the same for everyone else, where they can talk, and you hear it. Like a voice chat) who is on the site at that time.

    It would require you to have an .exe program that everyone would
    need to download. It would be a "hard sell" to get people to download it.
    The risks are too great. Of course, you know that you can subscribe to
    services that do this (and they have software to download), but you are
    looking for something on your own website.

    Can you imagine the privacy issues if you found out someone was listening to
    your microphone while you were on this website (for example)? That's the
    biggest problem of doing what you're proposing.

    I forgot to mention it'd be coded in to be off, and it only works when each person turns it on.
    Do you have any links to sites that will do this? Other than Shoutcast. I can't understand that one.

    Anyone got any links to the 'mentioned' programs people would need to download to do this? The people who are wanting my chat, would download it. Anything that is easy to configure, to install, to use, and preferably one that just connects into a web site already made (the one's hosting and allowing access to the program(s)), that connects every one downloaded based on an account made.

    You may have to use something like TeamSpeak and host your own TeamSpeak server. It isn't web based. It does everything else you want though.

    Can I some how, at-least have it where it can play the voices on Teamspeak, over on the chat? If so, then that might work.

    it's not as "simple" as all of that- "whatever" language the program is developed in would need to have an API to interact with a machines speaker AND mic (I guess in short sound card drivers)- there is a lot more to it than a simple code-it-for-you-and-your-friends... that is why those companies are able to charge because they developed the software, support it, and know all the ins-outs... I imagine the language they develop in is more geared toward C because it is closer to assembly/machine and the translations would be smoother- BUT* I could be wrong- they might package C# developed code for Windows OS; C for Mac, etc... what you have to understand is that it is more than just talking into a microphone and hearing it on the other end... sound recording and playback on a base level is a sine wave- all electrical... you would need to know how and be able to bridge all the gaps- in the end it would be extremely hard for one person to tackle... what is it you are trying to do? the technology for what you may be trying may already be there and you are unaware of it... for example (and I do not know/use it often and am very unfamiliar with it) skype chat is free- I assume it allows for a voice connection free as well if it is comp-to-comp and I also assume it handles conference... I know windows MSN allows for multi-chat rooms and I know it at least handles one-to-one video chat... again I have not used it so idk if it is there but it *might* handle a voice chat feature for a multichat session... all things to consider

    I code C hash-tag .Net
    Reference: W3C W3CWiki .Net Lib
    Validate: html CSS
    Debug: Chrome FireFox IE

    What I'm trying to do, and I found something that does it, but I don't have the cash for it, is places an add-on into your web page, that others also need to download. That allows you to voice chat on the webpage directly, without any other 'pages' or 'programs' running. I'm wanting it, even if we need to download it each, to not open anything up, and works when you're on the webpage.
