    You can't use Django for that, RTC is a separate protocol from HTTP. Check out https://github.com/aiortc/aiortc for a Python-based RTC stack. You write code in there which does the data processing and calls HTTP APIs or something on the Django side.

    I am sure there are even more implementations that I am not aware of.

    People don't make these decisions for technical reasons only. Career wise it is a bad choice to spend your time working on pre-existing technologies. You don't become a distinguished engineer by iterating on existing technologies. You become one by being the creator of something new.

    I think QUIC is great and does a good job solving the problems it was designed to solve. It is disingenuous to pretend these decisions were made only for technical reasons.

    Fortunately, we can use aiortc, a great open-source WebRTC library for Python. We will start by running the sample code and then learn about WebRTC based on it.
