What is WebRTC?

The WebRTC (Web Real-time communication) is an open source protocol that connects different browsers and devices, enabling the system to perform real-time communication with data sharing. It collaborates with multiple mediums of voice, video, and chat data over the internet connectivity. It works with a two-way communication strategy that takes place between two browsers in real-time.

It's infrastructure has been designed with an amazing specification of low latency that stimulates exchange of data and permits communication regardless of any external installation or plug-ins.

How does WebRTC work? - An Overview!

The WebRTC video chat is mainly recognized for it’s collaboration of remote peer-to-peer connections meant for corporates and cultural functioning using voice and video chat without making distances to be an issue. To initiate any peer-to-peer interaction efficiently, WebRTC keeps a track of three primary components. Each of them have their own crucial role to play with WebRTC video chat specification. This includes,

Media Stream is an API that is meant to get along to work with accessing the camera and microphone of the device. It keeps a track over the multimedia activities and data consumption of the devices. In other words, it looks after the information of the device with respect to capturing and rendering media.

It mainly targets on creating direct communication with no involvement of any intermediary connection. These Peer connections can also obtain or consume the media files, specifically the audio and the video files.

RTC Data Channel

RTC Data channels are there to support the creation of bi-directional transfer of arbitrary data among the peers. The design of these data channels are meant to work on SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol), which aims to reduce the congestion over the network including UDP. This ensures a reliable and consistent delivery of streams over the web.
