[jitsi-dev] Direct connection to Jitsi Videobridge via websocket/REST on localhost


#1

XMPP support is wonderful, however I was wondering if it is possible to add
support for a direct connection to Jitsi Videobridge via websocket/REST on
localhost via which I can pass the client's SDP for connection via WebRTC
in the browser.

The reason is that the project I'm working on is geared for classroom sized
broadcast situations in which all users authenticate and open an encrypted
websocket connection with a trusted websocket server which sends/receives
custom events to connect students and instructors together in different
typologies on-the-fly e.g. last-N, 1-1-N, (2-5)-N.

These typologies are easier to manage and signal via custom events over the
same websocket connection which is being used for multiple other app events
and then relay over a separate websocket/REST calls to a localhost bound
Jitsi Videobridge for signaling.
