Audio Visual Insights for Web-Conferencing and Live Streaming

How I built a WebRTC Enabled Website in 20 minutes!

Posted by Paul Richards on Dec 11, 2014 4:21:00 PM

Hello Web Conferencing Professional!

I wanted to share my experiences with WebRTC and how quickly you can get a free Face to Face video conferencing software up and running on your own website or server. As many of you may know Google has released a Open Source code library giving anyone the capabilities to install and use WebRTC! Using the free resources from Google and some basic HTML and CSS knowledge you can create a "Skype" like application in only a couple hours. 

Here is what you need:

  • A place to host your files (A Server)
  • Basic HTML Experience
  • Basic JavaScript Knowledge

android_manDo I need to be a programmer to use WebRTC?

  • Yes, to built WebRTC into a software application programming skills are required
  • However, JavaScript API’s that Call WebRTC in the browser will only require typical web development skills!

Step 1: Get the Source Code from the Google Chrome GitHub

Step 2: Check out what you just got.. For an example of what you get to play with:

  • Basic User Demo
  • WebRTC snapshots
  • Choose Camera Resolution
  • Choose Camera and Microphone
  • Face Tracking
  • A Google Hangout Video Chat Client!

Step 3: Customize your setup. Your only limited to your own HTML, CSS and JavaScript skills here guys.

Step 4: Upload/Host. Check out our finished version here: http://MeetFree.us

Step 5: Launch a Video Call! The only thing you have to remember here is to allow the browser access to your camera.
