Raspberry Pi + WebRTC

Hi Everyone,

I've been eager to get WebRTC running on a Raspberry Pi and was wondering whether anyone has had much luck?
I had a good play with the camera module when it was released last March but have since fallen a bit out of touch with progress.

Thanks in advance!

Adi

Hey Adi!

I am also looking into WebRTC. As far as I can tell the hardware should be able to make a video call in theory but I am a little lost on interacting with the GPU.

I did have a thought on linking two Pis so you could encode the video on one and decode on another to free up some more power but I am not sure how feasible would be. Has anyone else got any experience in trying this?

Before I start to reinvent the wheel, anyone got some progress on this?

Looking to get camera live streaming from RPi to a PC using WebRTC for my project

Guys,
I am also looking for the exact same thing. I have started playing with raspberry pi some time back and I have a fair idea about it now.
I am professionally a web guy with fair amount of knowledge of linux. I also have working experience of webrtc. I was thinking of taking an initiative to create something (either port an advanced browser like mozilla or create a native webrtc client on pi itself). My goal is to integrate webrtc with either raspbian or xbmc so that I can have a direct video chat from my TV itself.

Any takers for a project of such kind? If something is already available to start with , Please share.

Many thanks.

Hi, I can only say I had some success with janus-gateway. It did stream well but some more tweaking was needed for which I did not have time. Look for the project issue list titled 'h264'.

Thanks for the reply.
OpenwebRTC is not yet ready for real world webrtc implementation . WebRTC in itself is no big deal who knows basic java script.The toughest part is signalling. I am currently working on it. The problem I am facing is that I am not able to install latest version of mozilla firefox on Raspberry Pi. The day I can do that all my problems will be solved.I tried the demo openwebrtc website and it didn't worked with safari on my mac but it worked on firefox. Therefore, I am trying to create a super lightweight cross compiled linux distro like Arch Linux on top of which I will be installing an WebRTC capable browser.

"mozilla firefox on Raspberry Pi." not feasible whatsoever, yes I am being pedantic :roll:

Actually Firefox version 35.0.1 is in Arch Linux Arm repository which is the latest release, have you actually tried this ?

IceWeasel 31.4.0 ESR (Firefox 31 ESR) is in Raspbian Wheezy (Firefox 38 ESR is released around June), yes Ice is based on Extended Support Releases.

Unfortunately in general many add-ons and extensions will not imlement when the Browser is compiled for ARMHF

Got a simple demo working. Posted description in other thread.

Now to strip down the demo to remove extraneous HTML from Janus default page.

See UV4L for various solutions based on WebRTC, two-way realtime p2p audio + video (video is rendered on the pi display, audio rendered on the speakers), streaming to cloud (Jitsi Meet), HD *hardware* encoding/decoding H264, VP8, VP9, upcoming Janus support and many other things. Web and/or command line driven, no configuration required, no browser necessary on the pi.
