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
Do I need to be a programmer to use WebRTC?
- Yes, to built WebRTC into a software application programming skills are required
- Basic User Demo
- WebRTC snapshots
- Choose Camera Resolution
- Choose Camera and Microphone
- Face Tracking
- A Google Hangout Video Chat Client!
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.
