Lightweight, Live Video in a Webpage with GStreamer and WebRTC

Lightweight, Live Video in a Webpage with GStreamer and WebRTC | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

There are a few different layers and components that are required in order for a developer to take advantage of this, however. This includes an ICE server (which wraps one or more STUN or TURN servers), a data connection to your webserver, whether it’s Ajax, WebSockets, SSE, or something else, properly encoded video (exclusively using Google’s VP8 codec), and properly encoded audio (e.g. Opus)… All of which is encrypted as SRTP (secure RTP).

Les nouvelles frontières de la diffusion OTT : Multicast & P2P [Conférence OVFSquad]

Les nouvelles frontières de la diffusion OTT : Multicast & P2P [Conférence OVFSquad] | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Avec le passage au full HD et bientôt à la 4K de a diffusion OTT, le modèle de distribution unicast montre ses limites. La course à l’armement des CDNs dans le déploiement de baies de serveurs et la multiplication des points de peering n’est pas scalable à l’infini, et pourtant le traffic vidéo ne cesse d’augmenter de manière exponentielle, y compris – et surtout – sur les terminaux mobiles. La recherche de modèles de distribution OTT complémentaires avec le multicast est donc une priorité pour continuer d’assurer la qualité de l’expérience utilisateur et optimiser les coûts de diffusion. Les regards se tournent de plus en plus vers le transport multicast qui a fait le succès de l’IPTV, ainsi que le Peer-to-Peer qui, malgré sa réputation sulfureuse, a déjà fait ses preuves pour la diffusion de chaines live OTT à très grande échelle.

 

Pour tout savoir du multicast et du P2P, et apprendre des retours d’expérience et de recherche des membres de la Squad qui travaillent sur ces systèmes hybrides, OVFSquad organisait le 23 janvier 2014 une soirée spéciale de présentations (aka « Conférensquad ») dont voici le compte-rendu et les présentations.

Google admits its VP8/WebM codec infringes MPEG H.264 patents

Google admits its VP8/WebM codec infringes MPEG H.264 patents | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Almost three years after Google released its WebM video encoding technology as a "free" and open alternative to the existing H.264 backed by Apple and others, it has admitted its position was wrong and that it would pay to license the patents WebM infringes.

[...]

Mozilla and Opera initially also tried to prevent the use of H.264, but have since capitulated to support H.264 as a standard, leaving Google's WebM in virtually the same position it had as a new 1.0 product three years ago, but without any excitement surrounding it. This essentially makes WebM the equivalent of Flash in 2010: resolved of legal challenges but saddled with technical and performance issues, and incompatible with any devices running iOS.

FOMS Workshop and the State of Open Web Video

FOMS Workshop and the State of Open Web Video | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

The 2012 FOMS workshop took place in Paris, France. The working meeting consisted of focused sessions dedicated to bridging gaps among browser vendors and ensuing associative APIs meet the needs of developers that are making use of them. Browser vendors represented included Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera. Players platforms such as Youtube, BrightCove / VideoJS, Long tail / jwPlayer and of course Kaltura were also represented.

 

Organised by Siliva, the meeting has long severed as a great space to hack and ‘get things done‘ in the open media standards and software space. This year was no exception. In this post I highlight some of the sessions that took place and provide a rough summery of the state of associated web video APIs & components : WebRTC, Media Source Extensions / MediaStream Processing API, WebVTT, New Codecs...

Impressive: Video and voice calls in your browser without a plugin in sight

Impressive: Video and voice calls in your browser without a plugin in sight | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Until now, video calling from your computer has required dedicated apps such as Skype or browser plugins like Flash that power the likes of Vox.io. However, the similarly-named Voxeo Labs has been cooking up something impressive; plugin-free video and voice calls in a browser.


Using its own Phono SDK, Voxeo Labs has demoed a way of making calls using the WebRTC technology included in the Canary build of Google’s Chrome browser. Backed by Google, Mozilla and Opera, WebRTC is an open source project that allows developers to create real-time communications apps for the Web via Javascript APIs and HTML5.

MPEG LA and Google Settle: What Does it Mean?

MPEG LA and Google Settle: What Does it Mean? | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Google's licensing agreement with MPEG LA, and while the impact on streaming is likely to be small, the implications may be significant for other technologies like WebRTC.

[...]

As always, Google’s profit motive for WebRTC is opaque. The best contender for an actual motive was proposed by Tsahi Levent-Levi in the VisionMobile blog, who opined, “The real value for Google lies in allowing them to serve more ads and mine more insights out of people’s browser behavior – these are things that Google treasures.”

 

Whatever the motive, WebM certainly has a greater chance of succeeding in a nascent market like WebRTC than in existing markets that have already embraced other technologies.

OpenClove Video Exchange (OVX) Adds WebRTC Support to Embed Multi-Party Video Interaction in Web Applications [PR]

OpenClove Video Exchange (OVX) Adds WebRTC Support to Embed Multi-Party Video Interaction in Web Applications [PR] | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

OpenClove, an innovator in providing cloud mobile and video solutions, announces the support of WebRTC on its OpenClove Video Exchange (OVX). The development enables any application to embed multi-party video in web services and mobile apps, across any device or network. This capability brings together the power of OVX, a cloud based Media Resource Function (MRF) providing real-time audio and video mixing and processing, with the benefits of WebRTC, to deliver communications natively in web pages. Web services providers and application developers adopting WebRTC can now deliver a range of live video sharing and multi-party use cases for consumers and enterprise users.

 

OVX supports multiple audio and video codecs in a single video session, such as VP8 for WebRTC and H.264 for IMS, to assure seamless delivery of real-time communications across heterogeneous clients."

VeriSilicon Releases New Generation of Hantro Video IP Products to Promote WebM and WebRTC [PR]

VeriSilicon Releases New Generation of Hantro Video IP Products to Promote WebM and WebRTC [PR] | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

VeriSilicon had an excellent year 2011 on promoting WebM, a free, open media format, and WebRTC, a free, open real-time communications framework, through Hantro video semiconductor IP licensing. Most tier-1 semiconductor companies adopted VP8 video format for WebM by integrating Hantro G1 Multi-format Decoder and Hantro H1 Multi-format Encoder, the only commercially available encoding IP supporting both H.264 and VP8, into their chips and platforms.


This enables WebM video in a number of new, exciting devices such as media tablets, smart phones and smart TVs. Under an existing licensing agreement with Google, VeriSilicon has rights to commercially license Hantro G1 Multi-format Decoder and Hantro H1 Multi-format Encoder products to semiconductor companies worldwide and modify the Hantro video IPs to enhance core architecture and add new features.
