Possible errors:

If you have installed plugin using this tutorial and the error appeared:

Registration at ImbaChat plugin is not allowed! You should enable it in your profile on imbachat.com

That means you forbade unauthorized users to use the chat. And then you try to add the widget to the page without the correct authorization parameters.

You have to enable "Registration in the chat" in the Chat Settings on your imbachat.com Dashboard. You can learn more about that feature here.
