WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications)

Web Real-Time Communications (WebRTC) is an open source project that is expected to make video communication more user-friendly by embedding voice, text and video communications capabilities in Web browsers.

Web Real-Time Communications (WebRTC) is an open source project that seeks to embed real-time voice, text and video communications capabilities in Web browsers.

 

With WebRTC, end-users do not have to download a special software application or use the same client or browser plug-in to communicate directly with each other. WebRTC uses JavaScript, application programming interfaces (APIs) and HTML5 to embed communications technologies within the Web browser and is expected to make video communication more user-friendly.

 

The Web Real-Time Communications Working Group and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) are currently working on standards for WebRTC. At this time, WebRTC is fully enabled in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox Web browsers.
