Introducing mediasoup

A WebRTC SFU for Node.js

mediasoup is a WebRTC SFU (Selective Forwarding Unit) for Node.js that allows applications to run multiparty video conferencing with browser and mobile devices in a multi-stream fashion.

Rather than being yet another standalone media server, mediasoup is a Node.js library/module which can be easily integrated within existing applications.

mediasoup exposes both, the ORTC API and the WebRTC API (same as in browsers), allowing the application to program multiparty video conferencing via JavaScript. mediasoup is minimalist, it just focuses on media handling. It does not provide, nor it mandates, a specific network signaling protocol.

The talk will expose the technology behind mediasoup, the API it exposes, and a demo application the assistants will be able to join.
