Search - "webrtc"
when I finally get my code to work, no matter how small, I get up and walk around feeling like a boss4
Does anyone know a way of to do a video chat through node js (socket.io) or have a link to any resource? NOT through webrtc.
I used to have a link on this but lost it 😥
Meaning to give an end to end encrypted web video chat a chance.28
I seriously do not understand the rants against Windows.
I love Windows 10 (got as free upgrade from MS), and have no issues with MacOS or Linux OS. I use them as well but do all serious work on Windows.
All my life, I have worked on business / commercial side and picked up Web development in last couple of years. I started using computers on DOS in 1992, and shifted to Windows 3.0 in 1995. There was no Mac or MacOS back then.
For serious work, I purchased a old Dell Precision M4700 workstation grade laptop with quad-core i7, at throwaway price, got 32GB RAM, 2.4TB (1x2 TB + 400gb) of SSD on super sale online, and installed it myself. It easily supports dual 4k monitors.
Git-bash on windows allows all the necessary linux command line on windows. Though not tried, Windows 10 allows embedded Ubunutu with linux terminal. Web development tools like - VSCode, git, github / bitbucket clients, NVM/Node, React / Redux / Webpack / Gatsby / Jest, REST clients, GraphQL client and server, Graph Server, Chrome PWA / Chrome Dev Tools, http/Websocket/WebRTC interception, Google Firebase SDKs, AWS sdks, cloud utilities, CI/CD tools work flawlessly. Windows even has its own package manager for applications.31
So... i have almost finished training my script on linuxxx. It likes saying some very linuxxxy things (and occasionally just copyu-paseting from one of his rants) Here are some things it has said to me:
How motherfucking difficult can it be to port forward something internally?!
"linuxxx seems to know a lot more about privacy than the terminal"
As for github selling itself to Microsoft, this most likely nearly working

Hello fellas! 👋
I recently told you that I’m planning to pull out Chaaat – a fully open source messenger that doesn’t track you and doesn’t share your data: https://devrant.com/rants/1549251/....
The project is also mentioned here: https://devrant.com/rants/1570178/...
So, I’m here to tell you good news – a great developer, @not-a-muggle, decided to join me, and now we made a team!
I also made some conversations and acquired “chaaat” name from another team on Heroku, so now we have consistent domain name on both Heroku and GitHub Pages.
We have Trello board with very well described tasks almost anyone can do. We also have Slack to have both business and free conversations.
If you’re seeking a place to contribute and gain some NodeJS / React / PWA / WebRTC experience with detailed code review from experienced developer, just mention me here or shoot me an email on email@example.com. Provide your email so I’ll be able to contact you.
Our main goals are:
1. Have fun and some experience
2. Make it to Chrome Experiments mention
Marketing/advertising help is much appreciated.
Feel free to email me anytime!9
Worst code I ever had to touch: a React application, createClass era, before redux was a thing, that had everything in one fucking component.
Every fucking thing.
This was a simple video chat application, but still. The component's code included:
- Views (contact list and video call screen) and logic to switch between them;
- All application state;
- API calls;
- Websocket message handling;
- WebRTC logic (getUserMedia and p2p streaming).
This app was built by one person in one month for a demo. That person left the company after the demo and I had to maintain that mess without zero React knowledge (I was doing angular at that time). On his last day he gave me a crash course and an overview of how the app worked.
Around that time I attended a few meetups and a conference with talks about React. That, my curiosity and ability to learn by refactoring helped me a lot when I had to add new features and fix bugs in that app.5
How much do you earn for your skill set in your country vs your cost of living?
See how much I & others earn.
Recently I became aware of just how massive the gap in developers earnings are between countries. I'd love to calculate a fixed score for income vs cost of living.
I know this stuff is sensitive to some so if you prefer just post your score (avg income p/m after tax / cost of living).
I'm not shy so I'll go first:
Normal Rate (Long term): $23
Consulting / Short term: $30-$74
Pen Test: $1500 once off.
Pen Test Fixes: consulting rate.
Simple work/websites: min $400+
Family & Friends: Dev friends are usually free (when mutually beneficial). Family and others can fuck off, even if they can pay (I pass their info to dev friends with fair warning).
Experience: 9 years
Country: South Africa
Developer rareness in country: Very Rare (+-90 job openings per job seeker).
Middle class wage in country: $1550 p/m (can afford a new car, decent apartment & some luxuries like beer/eating out).
Employment type: Permanent though I can and do freelance occasionally.
Client Locality: Mostly local.
Developer Type: Web Developer (True web dev - I do anything web related from custom HTTP servers to sockets, services, advanced browser api's, apps & more).
STACKS / SKILLSETS
I'M PROFICIENT IN:
I DABBLE WITH:
ASP.net, C++, ruby, GO, nginx, tesseract
application architecture, automation, integrations, db's, real time data, advanced browser apps/extensions (webRTC, canvas etc).
Avg income p/m after tax: $2250
Cost of living (car+rent+food): $1200
*Note: For integrity when calculating my cost of living I excluded debt repayments and only kept my necessities which are transport, food & shelter.
I really hope you guy's post your results, it would be great to get an idea of which is really the worst / best country to be a developer in.20
Desk inventory(not counting computer hardware):
-Three interlocking polished high density particle board squares, cut by an industrial-grade 3d printer at the office of an architect friend. I use them as coasters.
-A roll of toilet paper, as I have a deviated septum and blow my nose so often that proper facial tissue would be wasteful.
-A landline phone, for work. I'm thinking about getting rid of it though, as I can do the majority of my work phone calls through Google Hangouts and our company's webrtc client, and because it costs me about $7 a month for the service, through ooma.
What's on your desk? No computer hardware, please. Also, please try to use your words, because it's a lot of fun to imagine the layout rather than see it.7
Debugging WebRTC is pure hell.
Solution: ask the marketing department or even the execs to video chat with you to test it on a staging server. So I push my changes to the server, wait for them to build, call my lab rat, check all the bugs, clean the code, push the changes back up. No fancy breakpoints. I'm doing the old style like my great uncle did. Oh wait no, he was pretty intelligent, but my lab rat isn't. They probably don't know what a console is. So no baby I'm not only talking about console logging the problems, I'm talking `alert` the heck out of the bugs - okay no, I'll just display the objects in the middle of the screen. The screen is my console.1
Everyone is hyped on Flutter so I got a new idea.
I'm so distasted of Discord's official mobile clients, and this popped off my head:
Why not we implement it on Flutter?
After all, Flutter has these all nice things, and its certainly better than React Native.
I've laid out some of the things that needs to be done and one thing I've noted and remembered was:
- AFAIR According to b1nzy, former Discord employee, you're gonna need to know the WebRTC packets for Screenshare.
- VC is gonna be easy, and its probably the thing I can support without being too hacky.
hmu if you're up, I'm gonna call it Fluttercord, it won't be big or anything - just a experiment I want to show to Discord since they seem to struggle with the mobile clients4
Another video calling app??!
Oh yus.. Why not!
There's no login, works on mobile browser and its dead simple!
Check it out and pliz give feedback!
And it's very beta!
Also, anyone have any gyaan about growth hacking for something like this?28
I think I've learnt something worthwhile from nearly every project I've been involved with. If I had to pick one however:
Started an open source project designed for projecting multimedia content during church services as procrastination from final year undergrad revision.
Fast forward nearly a decade, and I've learnt tremendous amounts as a result of starting it - dealing with everything from GStreamer on a native C layer, right through to WebRTC stuff (STUN, TURN, ICE, etc.) at the other end. What started as some odd attempts to show text and images on a screen in a user friendly fashion has grown tremendously, and is now used all over the world.
Trying to implement WebRTC for Voice chat in the company app in Unity.
- it's super fucking fast
- it kinda is peer to peer
- WebRTC comes in very different ways and therefore you either need to properly config the server or change the way the app works
- Each signaling server might have different config so you can't even connect to different servers like you do for http, ftp and so on
- You need to use a server to know each peer
- You need to use another server to make the actual messages go through
- None of it seems to actually be p2p except the fact that you will need to make a different connection to each and every other client in the conference
So basically it was engineered to be as compatible as possible and therefore no server-side default was defined in the protocol, which means it won't ever be actually very compatible with anything at all since everyone will make its configuration.
Fuck me, fuck WebRTC and fuck this whole shit1
Okay, I am working on WebRTC. Which is cool. A really cool topic.
If I just were not under time pressure. I need to understand it, implement it, librarise, and school my coworkers on it.
And I just run out of time. This is how stress is born.3
When the only thing that standing between you and finishing your app is WebRTC!
BAHHHHHHH, I don't know why, but this thing is kicking my butt. Spent like 2 weeks now trying to get it... Anyone on the community got any good links for how to use this? Because I am losing my mind here D:4
One of the coolest projects I've worked on was with the BBC, basically a competition attempting to find a new way to deliver news. Over 3 days we essentially brain stormed and scrum'd together a shoddy Web app using webRTC and 3 secret API's based on JSON and xml.
Fun project, performed badly but won. Moral of the story, if it looks nice, works as intended, no devs are reviewing it and you've crossed your fingers enough, you'll win ;)
Has anyone built a p2p data/video-stream application between a native java peer and a web application? I walked through some really promising webrtc tutorials, but it seems that webrtc is for browsers only.2
Anyone familiar with webrtc native android? I am having some problem with audio quality. Asked on stack no one replied :(
Here is the question -
I need some help here. I'm working on a my app, and one of the components is a chat. Now, for video and audio calls I am using WebRTC, but what about texts? Is there a way to use WebRTC there, preferably with E2E encryption?1
How It’s Changing the Future of Augmented Reality
What do you think about WebAR? Is It really important?
What do you think about these technologies WebGL, WebRTC, WebVR, and APIs?
I Encountered this exception in Flutter "Unhandled Exception: Unable to RTCPeerConnection::createAnswer: Error (null)"
Anyone who face this before ? I am so new to this.
