Revealing mediasoup’s core ingredients: Q&A with Iñaki Baz Castillo

Wed, 11/16/2022 - 14:32

I interviewed mediasoup’s co-founder, Iñaki Baz Castillo, about how the project got started, what makes it different, their recent Rust support, and how he maintains a developer community there despite the project’s relative unapproachability. mediasoup was one of the second-generation Selective Forwarding Units (SFUs). This second generation emerged to incorporate different approaches or address different use cases a few years after the first generation of SFUs came to market. mediasoup was and is different. It is node.js-based, built as a library to be part of a serve app, and incorporated the Object-oriented approaches used by ORTC – the alternative spec to WebRTC at the time. Today, mediasoup is a popular SFU choice among skilled WebRTC developers. mediasoup’s low-level native means this skill is required.

Post-Peak WebRTC Developer Trends: An Open Source Analysis

Tue, 10/11/2022 - 14:10

WebRTC had its peaks during the pandemic, but how is it doing now? Did all those new projects die, putting the community back at pre-pandemic “normal” levels or is WebRTC still going strong? I built and analyzed a dataset from over a million GitHub’s events since 2019 to help answer are there many new WebRTC-related repos, how many new users is WebRTC attracting, is the community coding as much as it used to, how are new API's like Insertable Streams and WebCodecs doing?

Calculating True End-to-End RTT (Balázs Kreith)

Mon, 07/11/2022 - 05:14

Balázs Kreith of the open-source WebRTC monitoring project, ObserveRTC shows how to calculate WebRTC latency - aka Round Trip Time (RTT) - in p2p scenarios and end-to-end across one or more with SFUs. WebRTC's getStats provides relatively easy access to RTT values, bu using those values in a real-world environment for accurate results is more difficult. He provides a step-by-step guide using some simple Docke examples that compute end-to-end RTT with a single SFU and in cascaded SFU environments.

How is WebRTC doing and who is driving usage? (Hint: Google Meet)

Tue, 12/14/2021 - 14:08

I have been looking at these Chrome usage statistics available on chromestatus.com for a while together with Tsahi Levent-Levi for WebRTC Insights but they are too fascinating to keep them behind our paywall. Let’s do some coffee ground reading on the usage of a number of important APIs and what it tells us about what […]

How to add virtual background transparency in WebRTC

Tue, 11/02/2021 - 13:39

There is a cool new feature everyone has been trying to implement – background transparency. Virtual backgrounds have been around for a while. Rather than inserting a new background behind user(s), transparency removes the background altogether, allowing the app to place users over a screen share or together in a shared environment. There doesn’t seem […]

How does WebRTC End-to-End Encryption work? Matrix.org example (Dave Baker)

Tue, 10/05/2021 - 14:00

One of WebRTC’s great features is its mandated strong encryption.  Encryption mechanisms are built-in, meaning developers don’t (often) need to deal with the details. However, these easy, built-in encryption mechanisms assume you have: 1) media is communicated peer-to-peer and 2) a secure signaling channel setup. Most group-calling services make use of a media server device, […]
