[jitsi-dev] peer-to-peer webRTC audio ?


#1

Hi,
we were trying out jitsi meet yesterday and were stunned by the easy user interface. It seems much easier for us to start a conference by invoking a website, and then posting the room-ID (this 16-digit random number link) to any other participant. Today I saw Emil Ivov on floss weekly, very interesting!

However, our organization won't be able to run our own server with videobridge and “meet" in the near future. And using another server might be difficult, as you have to trust and the streams are not end-to-end encrypted, if I got it correctly.

Would it be possible to develop an audio-only "meet" server, that
- provides the HTML site with embedded JavaScript for the thin client
- generates a room-ID in the browser's address bar, that the initiator of the conference can forward to other participants
- does the required signaling to establish a peer-to-peer, end-to-end encrypted audio conference between the clients
?

Such a Server would not require the huge bandwidth of a video-bridge, and the service would be easier for the user than the traditional jitsi rich java client. Key issue might be, if you can do audio-mixing with a thin-client.

Regards,
Till

Yes, it is very interesting.

Rent one from digital ocean for $5. :slight_smile:

And using another server might be difficult, as you have to trust and the
streams are not end-to-end encrypted, if I got it correctly.

Then setup your own server with an SSL cert.

Would it be possible to develop an audio-only "meet" server, that
- provides the HTML site with embedded JavaScript for the thin client
- generates a room-ID in the browser's address bar, that the initiator of the conference can forward to other participants
- does the required signaling to establish a peer-to-peer, end-to-end encrypted audio conference between the clients
