janus-webrtc-gateway-docker - Perfect Docker Image for Media Streaming Expert User ( https://github

  •    Dockerfile

This is a docker image for Janus Webrtc Gateway. Janus Gateway is still under active development phase. So, as the official docs says, some minor modification of the middleware library versions happens frequently. I try to deal with such a chage as much as I can. If you need any request about this repo, free to contact me. About the details of setup for this docker image, you should read the official docs https://janus.conf.meetecho.com/index.html carefully. I think that janus is better for webinar(web seminar), and jitsi is better for web conference system. The scalability of the current Jitsi Video Bridge(20181007) is poor because of having no local recording file(I'm not sure of this..). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHHoqKCjJ0E Jitsi last-n + VP8 simulcasting has the very good performance for web conference https://jitsi.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/nossdav2015lastn.pdf For the video format, janus recording is per video streaming, jitsi is for mixed video conference by using chrome headlesss + ffmpeg(alsa, libxcb). From these points, janus is suitable for webinar, jitsi is for web conference. Of course, both WebRTC SFU are amazing work!! I'm using both.

  •    Java

Jitsi Videobridge is an XMPP server component that allows for multiuser video communication. Unlike the expensive dedicated hardware videobridges, Jitsi Videobridge does not mix the video channels into a composite video stream, but only relays the received video channels to all call participants.
