Sub-based micro community websites LIVE CHATROOM FEATURE?

Hi all,

What is the feasibility of having a group-chat component like in Twitch or vBulletin forums with a live chat at the top of the page where all online users can interact with each other? Can ghost facilitate this with pre-included features or would it require some custom development? My background is in product design, not development though I am eagerly teaching myself to code while under quarantine.

The project I am working on values interaction over information. Users MUST be able to interact with the content published, as well as each other.

Please advise, in the meantime I will continue reading through documentation… Thanks all, stay healthy and safe!

Have you checked out our ‘Community’ themed integrations?

I have looked there but was hoping for a more robust, less branded chatroom with multiple channels that displays online users (like discord)

Another semi-unrelated question - how can you protect video content from non-subscribers? Can video content be hosted on Ghost servers with a plugin like Wistia or is YT/Vimeo the only option at the moment?

You can use Wistia or Cloudflare Stream https://www.cloudflare.com/products/cloudflare-stream/
However you should host them in their own instance so they’re easier to manage, rather than within a Ghost installation
