We are developing a video chat tool for parties. In a party, multiple people talk at once and they not only join the circle of a talk in front of them but also some loud voices from other circles of talks.
Social VRs realizes such party. But they are not as easy as video chat and people will prefer to eat and drink during online party. So we made a prototype with lib-jitsi-meet and here is a demo. The codes are at github.
We will continue to work on this and we will need to modify serverside also. But currently, our demo uses the servers for meet.jit.si.
I have several questions:
- Is it OK to keep this demo public on github server ? It may give some load on the server for meet.jit.si.
- Does jitsi community and/or 8x8 welcome this kind of client development ?
- Does any one know similar products ? I know Spatial Chat but it does not have 3D sound localization.
- Do you interested in 3D sound localization and/or online party application ?
We will work on:
A. UI for sharing screens/images/videos. Currently, it has only video and sound.
B. Extend JVB function to reduce relay packets. Currently all packets are forwarded to all clients.
We hope that our project is accepted by and get some interest from jitsi community.
