Meet us at WebRTC Global Summit

Next week, I will be presenting at WebRTC Global Summit in London. WebRTC Global Summit is one of the main European events that are focused around WebRTC. This time around, the event is split into three separate tracks: Developer track, taking place on April 11, where I will be speaking about video codecs in WebRTC and chairing the […]

See you at Kranky Geek India

This week, I am heading to Kranky Geek India. The event takes place on the 19th of March in Bengaluru with a great cadre of speakers – both local to India and those who are traveling especially for this (like me). As an organizer of this event, it is important for me that it turns […]

Why we are Using Real Browsers to Test WebRTC Services?

The most important decision we made was one that took place before testRTC became a company. It was the decision to use a web browser as the agent/probe for our service instead of building something on top of WebRTC directly or god forbid GStreamer. Here are a few things we can do because we use […]

How Different WebRTC Multiparty Video Conferencing Technologies Look Like on the Wire

MCU, SFU, Mesh – what do they really mean? We decided to take all these techniques to a spin to see what goes on on the network. To that end, we used some simple test scripts in testRTC and handpicked a service that uses each of these techniques: For mesh we used appear.in For SFU we used […]

How to make sure you have WebRTC incoming audio using testRTC

I hear this one far too many times: How can I make sure there’s incoming audio? We had this issue a few weeks/months ago, where sessions got connected in our WebRTC service, but there was no incoming audio. Can testRTC alert me of such a situation? Looking for your WebRTC inocming audio? testRTC can do just that […]

The day Talky and Jitsi failed – and why end-to-end monitoring is critical

It was a bad day for me. 14 January 2016. I had a demo to show to a customer of testRTC. Up until that point, the demos we’ve shown potential customers were focused on Jitsi or Talky (depending on who did the demo). There were a couple of reasons for picking these services for our […]

Will your WebRTC service cope with VP9?

Chrome 48 has been out for a week now with some much needed features – some of them we plan on using in testRTC ourselves. One thing that got added is official VP9 support. Sam Dutton, developer advocate @Google for everything WebRTC (and then some), wrote a useful piece on how to use VP9 with […]

How to create a .Y4M video file that Chrome can use?

If you’ve ever tried to replace the camera feed for Chrome with a media file for the purpose of testing WebRTC, you might have noticed that it isn’t the most easy process of all. Even if you got to the point of having a .Y4M file (the format used by Chrome) and finding which command […]

Welcome to our new website!

Not exactly new, but still. We’ve taken the time in the last month to revamp our website – not the web app that you use daily to test and monitor your services, but the one where people can find out more about us. The main change that you’ll notice is this section – the blog. […]
