It all started with command line messaging, then text chat took over and now it has evolved into real time audio-video chat and its is being considered as one of the most preferred ways of online communication. We at Prologic Technologies have been advocating advantages of WebRTC application development services and have developed many bespoke webrtc applications for our clients.
Why choose WebRTC in video conferencing application development?
One of the main reasons why WebRTC is preferred for development of live video conferencing applications is because it is open source technology with a lot of improvisation scope. It doesn’t require any third party software installation as well. Not only web, you can create applications for smart phones and various handheld devices such as tabs and Phablets using webRTC. Another benefit offered by WebRTC applications is that being a peer-to-peer protocol based technology it helps you to cut down on bandwidth costs.
Here are some key advantages of WebRTC:
- Instant Audio/ Video call using web browsers and native SDK.
- No Software installation required.
- Pre- configured local camera and video element for streaming of video and audio.
- Live Audio- Video Broadcasting.
- Data encryption and secure transmission.
- Can be used for text messaging, SIP interconnect, Screensharing and more.
API’s used by WebRTC for development
Generally there are three API’s used in the development of WebRTC Applications.
Data Channel is responsible for transferring data between both parties. It was designed on the basis of the websocket API. Instead relying on TCP protocol, Data Channel uses UDP- based streams With SCTP protocol. Which makes it capable of both delivering like TCP and a low congestion network of UDP.
PeerConnection is an integral part and acts as a core of WebRTC development. It creates a path for participants to establish connections between them without using any intermediate server.There are three types of information that must be relayed before beginning the connection. The session control is responsible for the session initialization, closing, and modification. Network data is responsible for determining the IP address and port number allowing both sender and receiver to find each other. Media data is responsible for determining the common codecs and media types of both sender and receiver.
