Complete client/server application demonstrating how to setup a video conference with multiple peers using WebRTC.
What the app does
When a peer visits http://127.0.0.1:1337/, a new room url is generated, which can then be used to invite others to the video conference.
Below is a screenshot of a sample room (http://127.0.0.1:1337/jk4qhh) with four users participating in a video conference:
A full working demo is available at FooBubble.com.
At the moment WebRTC is supported only by a limited number of browsers: Chrome, Firefox and Opera.
How to run the code
- Clone the repo:
$ git clone https://github.com/lucaslouca/video-conference-webrtc.git
$ cd video-conference-webrtc

npm config set proxy http://"username:password"@proxy-server.com:8080 first.
