This project is no longer maintained. Please use OpenVidu Project instead, as it is a programable platform aimed to create room-like applications. It has several demos and tutorials updated with last technologies (Angular, React, Ionic, WebComponents, etc).


Kurento Room is composed by several modules to offer group communications by means of WebRTC. These modules are:

  • kurento-room-sdk - module that provides a management interface for developers of multimedia conferences (rooms) applications in Java.
  • kurento-room-server - Kurento’s own implementation of server-side room management. It provides a WebSockets API for the communications between room clients and the server.
  • kurento-room-client - Java library that uses WebSockets and JSON-RPC to interact with the Room Server. Can be used to implement the client-side of a room application based on our server.
  • kurento-room-client-js - Javascript library that acts as wrapper for several JS APIs (WebRTC, WebSockets, Kurento Utils). Can be used to implement the client-side of a room application based on our server.
  • kurento-room-test - integration and functionality tests for the room server applications (demo & basic).
  • kurento-room-demo - demonstration project, contains the client-side implementation (HTML, Javascript, graphic resources) and embeds the Room Server to provide the functionality required for group communications.
  • kurento-room-basicapp - lighter demonstration project.

There is extensive documentation on each of these components together with a tutorial based on the Room demo. These docs are generated from a separate Kurento project.
