StreamLink data types

StreamLink can exchange a wide variety of types of data with Liberator. It supports the same data types as DataSource applications, and additionally a Chat data type.

The Chat data type

Chat items allow users logged into a Liberator to chat in real-time. Each chat item represents a virtual chat room for 2 or more users. A client sends a message on a chat "channel" by updating (publishing to) the associated Chat item.

Note: Chat items are only sent between StreamLink clients and Liberator. They can't be used as a data type for transmission between DataSource applications.
