14 Sep RealTimeWeekly #97
We have a lot of interesting content this week below as usual, but first I hope you will indulge me in mentioning a couple of fun events I attended last week.
Last week I had a chance to speak at two different events in California, and talk with lots of people about WebRTC, both experts and newbies. On Friday I spoke on UX for WebRTC at the Kranky Geek event in San Francisco. There were many interesting insights and announcements at that event you will hear more about in upcoming blog posts, but two that I want to mention to you now … Beginning in December 2015, Chrome will not allow access to the user’s camera or audio through GetUserMedia without an SSL connection, and Firefox will soon support an early version streaming from the HTML5 canvas tag which means you can combine streams and other effects into a canvas and then send it to a peer as a single stream.
You can see all the WebRTC talks from Kranky Geek. It was a great event! In addition, I spoke at the Santa Clara Real Time meetup last week, and gave an introduction to WebRTC which you might be interested in.
As always, if you have tips, event announcements, or suggestions, please contact me directly at Arin@AgilityFeat.com.
