2-Column Video Chat Page
Use this to create a video chat page with Twilio's API.

Overview

Responsive layout for a two-column video chat page. Includes UI for joining a video chat room and updating video settings (e.g., video on/off, mute on/off, screen share, and leave room). The sidebar includes UI to view/invite participants and a messenger to chat with other users in the room. This page template uses the Twilio Video Chat plugin created by Bubble. Please ensure you have added this plugin to your app before creating this page with Canvas Pages (Go to app Bubble editor > Plugins Tab > Add plugin).
For more information on how to set up the Twilio video chat plugin, please refer to Twilio's documentation and Bubble's plugin forum post.
Note: Due to the complexity of the page's responsiveness settings, we have disabled the ability to add additional blocks to this page with the extension.

Structure

  • When this page is added to your app, it will come with five main groups:
    • FloatingGroup Join This group includes the UI for joining a room and entering a participant name (both inputs are required for joining a room with the Twilio plugin).
    • FloatingGroup Video This group includes the VideoChat element and UI buttons for updating the video, audio, and room settings.
      • This group includes a placeholder group called Group VIDEO PLACEHOLDER. If you are adding more elements to FloatingGroup Join, please ensure you resize the placeholder group so it is not overlapping with any other elements.

      • This group includes a placeholder group called Group SIDEBAR PLACEHOLDER. If you are adding more elements to FloatingGroup Participant/Chat, please ensure you resize the placeholder group so it is not overlapping with any other elements.
