Nowadays, it has become very popular to embed video calls on websites and hold meetings, e-learning, virtual events, and webinars on your own domain without the use of third-party software.

You can embed Proficonf video calls on your own website via iframe API

It’s free to get started, we automatically provide $25 when you sign up for Workspace with a business email to test all the features and embedding. Just a few lines of code need to be embedded to get the first result and check it out. It doesn’t take much time.

Copy the sample code in the developer docs: https://proficonf.dev/docs/getting-started/installation

Then paste the meeting URL in the code above with one that you’ve created in your Meetings section. Just copy it from the Workspace Meetings section in Proficonf.

Now try loading your website page. You should see that the Proficonf video call is running. Here is a screenshot of the video call on the Proficonf iframe Demo page with another website domain.

The embedded virtual room will be displayed with a UI, default controls and all the features for Proficonf video calls are available. You can customize the UI and change the color, logo, locale, username, iframe size, and remove elements.

For default display settings, check out the docs: https://proficonf.dev/docs/reference/iframe-api/initialization

You also can check out our REST API if you’re a developer interested in programmatic controls.

Don’t forget to generate and copy the API key

Proficonf API uses API Key to authenticate requests. You can view and manage your API key in your Workspace settings (Workspace settings > Integration).

Use our REST API as an easy way to create and manage meetings, files, time zones, records, and other resources. You can also subscribe to events, such as starting or ending meetings, using webhooks, etc.
