Video: Get on the #WebRTC bus or get run over!

#Hookflash video call with Cullen Jennings (aka Fluffy – Chair for the  IETF Working Group – RTCWEB) today. We discussed many items on the hit list for WebRTC / RTCWEB and the recent IETF 83 meeting in Paris, held last month.

It was interesting to hear Cullen call out to everyone, “..pay attention or risk getting run over by the WebRTC bus!”

A few of the questions asked..

  • What is WebRTC and why is it important?
  • What is the difference between WebRTC and RTCWEB?
  • Who are the driving forces behind this new technology?
  • What does WebRTC mean to the average person?
  • What problems are left to resolve eg. Video & Audio Codecs, Signalling, Security, Identity?
  • Will there be verified identity providers in this model like SSL cert providers?
  • When will we see WebRTC used by most app and web developers?
  • When will we see WebRTC hit mainstream adoption?
  • Who are the big players?
  • What does this mean to SIP or P2PSIP?
  • Where does Microsoft / Skype or other P2P offers fit in?
  • Where does Apple on mobile devices and WebKit fit in?
  • What about Google & Hangouts?
  • How would non-SIP players use this technology?

Thanks for the time Cullen!
