[jitsi-dev] transparent rendering and selfwritten plugins


#1

Hi guys,
I am currently trying to find a voip software which allows me to use
video telephony. I wrote a small application in c++ using opengl to
display content, this content should now be transported to an other
place. Thus i would like to,
1) write a plugin in this sip client which can transport my videostream
2) the recipients should be able to render parts of the image
transparent.

Could you please tell me if jitsi could be used for that purpose?

Greetings philipp

Well, I believe it is too broad of a question without the details such
as whether you want to use Jitsi as an application or as a library...
Anyway, I guess it would be relatively easy to have your OpenGL
content plugged into Jitsi in the form of a video device and then
making a call from inside Jitsi with that video device would send your
OpenGL content to the remote peer in the form of a video stream
encoded in the negotiated video format (e.g. H.264).

2) the recipients should be able to render parts of the image transparent.

Hm... You'll definitely have to provide/modify/implement a renderer
and plug it into Jitsi in order to implement transparency.
