  • Best option for self hosting a movie watch party?
    reddit.com/r/homelab | 2021-09-07
    Not sure how well it would work but there’s a thing called n.eko I’ve used in the past. It’s a docker container that hosts a web browser as a website that multiple people can go to and all watch the same screen. It has adjustable resolution too so you can pick whatever works for your bandwidth. While the original version does only support a web browser you can tweak the docker config to dump you to a Linux desktop instead where you could play it in your preferred watching software. One downside to this method is it needs 2 ports forwarded for every user in addition to the ports for the site itself. here’s the link
  • Question: Any idea how to do a remote screenshare using webrtc and controlling the machine remotely at the same-time ? (i.e I tried using barrier KVM to remotely control the machine but has mouse sensitivity issues when gaming)

    The best implementation I have seen of this is neko. The responsiveness is good enough for real-time IMO.

    Share browser with friends, watch movie, Shop or do whatever together
  • alternative to Discord for screen sharing /streaming
    I saw also docker image for setting up a browser that will do a sharescreen but I never tested it yet (https://www.watchparty.me/) or (https://github.com/nurdism/neko).
  • How can I broadcast my webrtc (many to many) call using rtmp
    reddit.com/r/WebRTC | 2021-04-19
    Another way I have been doing it is using neko it is a web browser that outputs to RTMP. You could run this on a server and then join the conference call. It would load the page and get the usual conference experience. You could then send that to a RTMP server.
  • Selfhosted rabb.it/tutturu.tv VM
    You could try n.eko.
