This is a docker image for Janus Webrtc Gateway. Janus Gateway is still under active development phase. So, as the official docs says, some minor modification of the middleware library versions happens frequently. I try to deal with such a chage as much as I can. If you need any request about this repo, free to contact me. About the details of setup for this docker image, you should read the official docs carefully.


  • libwebsocket 2.2.0, build with LWS_MAX_SMP=1 for single thread processing
  • libsrtp 2.0.0
  • coturn
  • openresty
  • golang 1.7.5 for building boringssl
  • compile with the latest ref count branch for memory racing condition crash
  • compile with only videoroom, audiobridge, streaming plugin
  • enable janus-pp-rec
  • GDB, Address Sanitizer(optional, see Dockerfile) for getting more info when crashing
  • not compile datachannel
  • boringssl for performance and handshake error
  • nginx-rtmp-module and ffmpeg compile for MCU functionalilty experiment. For example, WEBRTC-HLS, DASH, RTMP...etc
  • use --net=host for network performance. If you use docker network, some overhead might appear (ref.

You should read the official doc carefully.

you should use janus streaming plugin

In order to get the keyframe much easier, it is useful to set fir_freq=1 in janus conf
you should use janus video room or audiobridge plugin
After publishing your feed in your room, you should use rtp-forward. The sample javascript command is

# Input this in Google Chrome debug console. you must change publisher_id, room, video_port, host, secret for your conf.
var register = { "request" : "rtp_forward", "publisher_id": 3881836128186438, "room" : 1234, "video_port": 8050, "host" : "your ip address", "secret" : "unko" }
