EasyRTC

A bundle of Open Source WebRTC joy!

Priologic's EasyRTC, a bundle of Open Source WebRTC joy, incorporates an EasyRTC server install and client API, and working, HTML5 and JavaScript, application source code under a BSD 2 license.

Features

  • Install EasyRTC's WebRTC Server on your own Linux, Windows, or Mac server in minutes not days.
  • Use our EasyRTC API and sample application code to build and deploy your WebRTC app in hours not weeks.
  • EasyRTC is completely free and open source under a BSD 2 license. No usage costs or other hidden fees.

Installation In A Nutshell

  1. Install Node.js
  2. Download the EasyRTC distribution from github (https://github.com/priologic/easyrtc.git)
  3. Run npm install in the easyrtc directory.
  4. Enter the easyrtc/server_example directory by executing cd server_example
  5. Run npm install in the server_example directory.
  6. Start EasyRTC by running node server.js while in the server_example directory.
  7. Browse the examples using a WebRTC enabled browser. (defaults to port 8080)

Important note: Chrome will not grant access to local microphones or cameras for a page served using http except for the localhost case. See the docs/easyrtc_server_ssl.md file for instructions on serving files using https.

Step by step instructions including additional setup options can be found in /docs/easyrtc_server_install.md

Note: there is no corresponding need to install the client files specifically; they were installed as part of EasyRTC in step 3.
