Explore the future of Real-Time Communications with WebrtcHacks as we delve into the use of WebCodecs and WebTransport as alternatives to WebRTC’s RTCPeerConnection. This comprehensive blog post features interviews with industry experts, a review of potential WebCodecs+WebTransport architecture, and a discussion on real-time media processing challenges. We also examine performance measurements, hardware encoder issues, and the practicality of these new technologies.
WebRTC used to be about capturing some media and sending it from Point A to Point B. Machine Learning has changed this. Now it is common to use ML to analyze and manipulate media in real time for things like virtual backgrounds, augmented reality, noise suppression, intelligent cropping, and much more. To better accommodate this […]
WebRTC had its peaks during the pandemic, but how is it doing now? Did all those new projects die, putting the community back at pre-pandemic “normal” levels or is WebRTC still going strong? I built and analyzed a dataset from over a million GitHub’s events since 2019 to help answer are there many new WebRTC-related repos, how many new users is WebRTC attracting, is the community coding as much as it used to, how are new API’s like Insertable Streams and WebCodecs doing?
There is a cool new feature everyone has been trying to implement – background transparency. Virtual backgrounds have been around for a while. Rather than inserting a new background behind user(s), transparency removes the background altogether, allowing the app to place users over a screen share or together in a shared environment. There doesn’t seem […]
