LIVE555TM WebRTC Demonstration
The WebRTC video demonstration is currently offline. For alternative technology for viewing a RTSP stream from within a web browser, please note instead the "LIVE555 HLS Proxy" application.
The "LIVE555 WebRTC Server" acts as a proxy for a 'back-end' RTSP stream (a network camera, delivering a H.264, MPEG-4, or JPEG video stream). The server transcodes the video stream into a 100kbps VP8 video stream, and delivers this VP8 video stream to one or more 'front-end' clients.
Unlike the "LIVE555 Proxy Server" however, the "LIVE555 WebRTC Server's" front-end clients are not RTSP clients, but web browsers - using the "WebRTC" standard (part of HTML5). WebRTC allows compliant browsers (including Chrome and Opera) to receive real-time audio/video streams, without requiring a 'plugin'.
The VP8 video stream is delivered to each 'front-end' client web browser using SRTP (i.e., encrypted RTP/RTCP, which is mandated for WebRTC). The "LIVE555 WebRTC Server" - along with each web browser - uses the IETF-standard STUN and ICE protocols to traverse any NATs that may be present between the server and browser.
