video conference in web browser

Post by macangelo » Wed 21. Dec 2016, 07:46

Hi all

I'm looking for an application for providing video conferencing in a web browser. As in Skype, visitors can click a button to request a video conference, if anybody is home, the owner of the website will start the video conference. The conference should be private of course. Oh, and it should work without Flash.

Anything you can recommend?

Thanks a lot.

In general you need infrastructure for this, use a central service having Developer API like Google Hangouts https://developers.google.com/+/hangouts/ or Twilio https://www.twilio.com or Skype Business https://www.skype.com/de/business/skype-for-business/

Nearly every modern browser supports WebRTC https://webrtc.org. (excluding IE at the moment, but seems there are plugins available)

There are Open Source WebRTC (, http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/apis/webrtc) software too like https://www.openwebrtc.org/.
