  • WebRTC 102: Understanding libWebrtc
    4 projects | dev.to | 27 Nov 2022
    The "Mediasoup" project provides a high level JavaScript/TypeScript interface to the WebRTC APIs. The core logic of this project is implemented in C++/Rust. Consider taking a look at the project if you want an easy-to-use library instead of the low-level libWebRTC APIs. A notable project to mention is the Pion/webrtc project which has a Golang implementation of the WebRTC API. Of course, we should mention the rust port WebRTC.rs. Let’s keep all the rustaceans happy too!

    Have you considered using webrtc? It's a well-established protocol supported by all major browsers, and there's already a pure-Rust implementation you might be able to use.

    If you ever did decide to add the complexity of RTC, my personal favorite SFU is MediaSoup with Janus a second. But if you want to be adventurous the Rust WebRTC project would be your go to. In any case cool project!!
  • Best way to implement one directional listener for UDP or TCP?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 6 Oct 2022
    Yup, WebRTC can do this. In Rust there's webrtc.rs which I've been contributing a fair amount to. Check out this example the SDP that's provided via $BROWSER_SDP and the subsequent answer that is pasted back into jsfiddle is the two way connection that /u/anlumo mentioned. With a server this is typically done with a POST request.

    They are fully implemented and work. There's a known performance issue related to peak throughput, which trails Pion significantly. There might be bugs of course, but we haven't found any data channel bugs for our use case(SFU).

    While there's still more work to do, there are many examples available to showcase what the project can do already.
  • No really, why can't we have raw UDP in JavaScript?

    There are implementations for that, here is one for example.

    I think https://webrtc.rs/ is our best bet for this future. I am very optimistic about it. The security/memory safety aspect of it is just so important.

    So many important things are happening over WebRTC (telemedicine, remote control of dangerous machines...) I just would hate to see one of these C++ memory bugs have a negative impact.

  • Rust Time Communication.
    3 projects | dev.to | 4 May 2022
    With the strike in session, I had a lot of time on my hands to learn what I needed to learn, and things went on smoothly till I hit a brick wall. I couldn’t find a Web RTC implementation in Rust. Web RTC is a framework that allows browsers and web-based applications to communicate in real-time. It is important to know that while Rust has made a lot of waves in recent times, it is still relatively new compared to other languages and development technology. There were still things that had not fully been abstracted to the level where regular developers could easily access the functionalities without having a deep understanding of how they worked. Web RTC was one of them. Now that I think of it, I found one, but it was basically just C embedded in Rust. While that sort of worked, It wasn’t what I wanted. I searched around a bit more, then I found someone, Rainliu working on a Web RTC implementation in Rust. It was in its early stages though, in fact, all that had been done was a collated list of frameworks that would allow Web RTC to work in Rust. I decided to help out, or at least try to help. There I was, a few weeks into learning Rust, and I wanted to help build a library.
