Lynckia: Open Source WebRTC multimedia communication provider

WebRTC provides high quality communication in a peer-to-peer environment. However, in some cases this p2p nature can be a setback instead of an advantage. A MCU (Multipoint Control Unit) is a component used to forward multimedia connections between more than two participants.

Lynckia is an Open Source project that provides conference rooms where participants are able to share their video, audio and data streams. In order to do that, it provides all the necessary components including JavaScripts APIs for client and server side.

We will explain MCUs and Lynckia, it's components and the API you need to start coding in the Hackathon! We will show you several examples of videoconferencing with advanced Web interfaces, such as 3D CSS, WebGL, etc.

We will show you how you can install your own Lynckia, for the purpose of the Hackathon we will also provide previously installed servers as well.

Here you can see the contents of this talk:

  • How MCUs can be used in WebRTC?

  • Lynckia Architecture and Components

  • Install your own Lynckia.

  • Lynckia Backend API

  • Lynckia Frontend API
