  • Building a customer support solution focused on video calls
    Custom peer-to-peer video call implementation can also be done using vanilla webrtc or https://github.com/feross/simple-peer but using an SFU such as Janus can help

    Not an expert here but have some experience with it:

    Assuming that each peer is connected to every other peer via a mesh network [see this image for reference: https://github.com/feross/simple-peer/blob/master/img/full-m...], each outgoing stream (esp. audio / video) is likely going to be duplicated, per recipient.

    Scalability over a mesh network is fully dependent on CPU and network performance of all of the connected devices, and I'd doubt it could handle 12 participants if there is video involved, unless all participants are running relatively high-end and modern devices, with optimal network conditions.

    You'll need a SFU or an MFU running on the server to handle larger rooms, while enabling all connected devices to only have to send one output stream per media type, regardless of how many connected participants there are.

    For the tmp-webrtc extension, at first I wanted to create a backend service to implement peer discovery. That would also give me an opportunity to try out DigitalOcean’s paid services (like running backend apps and using a managed database). Unfortunately due to time constraints I didn’t get around to doing that and used the P2PT library for peer discovery instead. P2PT uses public WebTorrent trackers as a WebRTC signaling server, and so no backend services have to be deployed. So it ended up being another static app. This is my first time using P2PT and WebRTC for file transfers though, so I still think I learned a lot.

    Sending and receiving files via WebRTC. I used P2PT for peer discovery and simple-peer-files for file transfer. They are based on the simple-peer library. I’ve never used them, and a hackathon is a great time to try out things I’ve never tried before.
