WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) - an open source technology for implementing multimedia communication capabilities in real time directly in your web browser

WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) is an open source technology for implementing multimedia communication capabilities in real time directly in your web browser. It sets the Peer-to-Peer connection between two or more people, which is perfect for transferring of a multimedia file. This technology is natively supported by Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera. You do not need any additional plug-ins for these browsers. You just need to open a web page and start a conversation. There is no native support for those using Safari and IE.
The process is simple. First, the browser sends a signal to the WebRTC server that the user wants to initiate a call. After getting the link from the server, the user sends the link to his companion. In the pop-up window browser prompts the user for permission to access a web camera and a microphone.
