I run a weekly live podcast, and I currently use Meebo because of it's instant access for users. Users don't need to connect with Facebook or Twitter or confirm their email, they are just thrown into a chat and can change their username. The problem with Meebo is they have a 80 person limit in the chats, which we have lately exceeded.

Does anybody know any other embeddable chat room services with relative ease of use?

Thanks Robert

Mibbit is an online and embeddable IRC client. You will need to set up an IRC channel on a server of your choice, then specify the server and channel when you create a widget to embed on your site.

For a live example, visit http://rainwave.cc/ and click "Chat" in the top right.

From a Posterous post:

Olark a lightweight method to chat with visitors to your website using your existing instant messaging client. Visitors to your website appear as buddies on your Buddy list, their messages to you appear as IMs.

If ever you'd be discussing a web site, you could create a link that users could click on and then it'd put a chat box on that web site :D

Geekshed has a Flash-based IRC client that you can embed on your website for use with a Geekshed channel.

We've recently launched a new chatrooms website, where you can create a chatroom and embed it on your website.

Please visit http://www.e-chat.co for more information.

The tutorial on embeding the chatroom can be found at: http://e-chat.co/widget/widget.example.jsp

Its free, requires no plugins and its very simple to use. You might give it a go, why not :P

any feedback let us know on echat.chat.online@gmail.com

Cheers, E-Chat team.

You can always try to embed e-chat on your website, there is no limit for users. For instructions on how to do that go to www.e-chat.co/widget/widget.example.jsp

Its free, and we are constantly improving it. Give it a try :-)
