  • "Jellyfin remote" with zerotier?
    1 project | /r/jellyfin | 5 Apr 2022
    It would be great if that functionality could be integrated directly into the jellyfin server and apps. libzt has good support for all the languages that jellyfin and it's clients use.

  • I created a small game. Is it possible to make it multiplayer with ZeroTier?
    1 project | /r/zerotier | 28 Nov 2021
    Basically you have to make it work within the LAN yourself, then you can use Zerotier (or even libzt) to make it work over the internet.

    Take a look at zerotier it's open source, they offer a free tier and you can even bake it directly into your app(they have a library on GitHub lizbt. Unless you are willing to become a security analyst don't roll your own crypto it's never worth it, use a vpn or something https based.

    You can use https://github.com/paullouisageneau/libdatachannel for your C/C++ integration needs. It's 10k lines. So the answer is 0. Its required dependencies (I assume this as they are git submodules in deps) are more than 100k lines, though, srtp support making the bulk of it. On my machine it took 11 seconds to compile it.

    Irssi is 64k lines (plus its dependencies), so I guess that makes WebRTC complicated.

    Can't argue that DCC isn't simple, but perhaps the protocol deviced decades ago is a bit too simple.

  • Pure C WebRTC
    12 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Jan 2024
    I am really excited about https://github.com/sepfy/libpeer. It has examples ready for ESP32 etc....

    When working on KVS I wasn't familiar with the embedded space at all. I saw 'heavyweight' embedded where you were running on Linux. Then you had RTOS/No OS at all. I wasn't prepared for these devices at all. If we can make WebRTC work in the embedded space I think it will really accelerate what developers are able to build!

    Remotely driven cars, security cameras, robots in hospitals that bring iPads to infectious patients etc... Creative people are building amazing things. The WebRTC/video space needs to work harder and support them :)

    -----

    I love how diverse the WebRTC space is now. Outside of this implementation you have plenty of other options!

    This is not true, there are actually multiple WebRTC implementations in different languages besides the reference library: aiortc (python), libdatachannel (C++), sipsorcery (C#),webrtc-rs (rust), werift (Typescript), and Amazon Kinesis (C)

    Use any means necessary to transfer your data across devices. Could be IPFS, could be FTP, could be EventSource, WebSocket, WebTransport, Fetch, whatever. See https://github.com/guest271314/secure-file-transfer; offscreen-webrtc, https://github.com/paullouisageneau/libdatachannel.

    Alternatively you can use your server as a signaling server for WebRTC (Insertable Streams ("Breakout Box"), or data channels https://github.com/paullouisageneau/libdatachannel), then users (peers) can exchange data themselves and you don't need to store anything, see True End-to-End Encryption with WebRTC Insertable Streams, A complete example for a WebRTC datachannel with manual signaling.
  • Datachannel video streaming?

    there is also a c++ library that can be used to open a data channel connection, I think a number of SFU “servers?” use this library (I wish I had) https://libdatachannel.org/
