The Importance of DevOps in Live Video Applications

DevOps is a set of skills that our WebRTC development clients are needing more and more, even if they don’t ask for it by name. Implementing quality DevOps is particularly crucial to live video applications for its ability to enable scalable architectures, reliable applications, easier application maintenance, easier application transition, and continuous improvement.

Watch WebRTC Live #57 – How To Successfully Scale Your WebRTC in 2021

For our 57th episode of WebRTC Live, Arin Sime was joined by Anton Venema, CTO at LiveSwitch Inc for a deep dive into successfully scaling your WebRTC application in today’s technological landscape. They discussed the basics of scalability and media servers, optimizing for client vs. server efficiency, RTP packets and streams, bitrate management, the benefits of using a CPaaS to scale, and more.

The Software Testing Life Cycle

Just like software development, software testing has its own life cycle with specific objectives and deliverables. Our expert testing team combines your application’s success criteria with our best practices in building live video apps to come up with an efficient test plan that delivers efficient, high value testing.

Four Ways to Fix Your WebRTC Application

Fixing an existing WebRTC application is not as much fun as building a new one, but it’s often necessary. Our team typically employs a combination of four fixes: re-architecting the media server or choosing a new CPaaS, solving compounding bugs, re-architecting the application, and improving the UX and error handling.

7 Principles of Software Testing

The knowledge and consideration of the ISTQB testing principles allows our testing experts to be more effective in creating individualized strategies depending on the client and the application’s particular requirements. Our Testing Manager Rafael Amberths discusses these seven principles of software testing in the second of a three-part series.

Watch WebRTC Live #56 – How To Create Social Group Magic with WebRTC and Wonder

For our 56th episode of WebRTC Live, Arin Sime was joined by Wonder Co-Founder Leonard Witteler. Leonard and his team have used WebRTC to build a virtual space for groups to meet, talk, exchange ideas, and work together that is so much more than a networking tool for virtual business conferences. He discussed the evolution of the technology and architectures that made Wonder possible and their use of multiple CPaaS providers, as well as MediaSoup, to handle their varied use cases.

Types of Software Tests

It may not sound comforting to know that there are people who spend 100% of their time finding mistakes in the work of others, but their work is absolutely indispensable. That is precisely the job of our QA team at the WebRTC.ventures testing laboratory in Panama City, Panama. Our Testing Manager, Rafael Amberths, discusses the role of the testing team and types of testing in the first of a three-part series.

Background Removal with the Vonage Video API

Taking WebRTC Video calling to the next step involves providing more functionality and custom behavior to our video conferencing applications. We’ve experimented with using the HTML canvas to add more customization to our video calls, and we’ve found that gives us a lot of power. In this post, we look at leveraging the Vonage Video API with the power of HTML canvas to apply virtual backgrounds to our video calls.

One for All, All for One: WebRTC Mesh Architecture

There are a number of strategies available for enabling WebRTC multi-party connections. The most simple choice is Mesh. But only if you don’t need to support more than 3-5 users on the same call and you don’t want a server in the middle. Our DevOps Engineer, Hector Zelaya, explains.

Watch WebRTC Live #55 – Around – Building the Future of Collaborative Audio & Video Experiences

For our 55th episode of WebRTC Live, Arin Sime was joined by Manik Sachdeva from Around. Manik provided insight into the features, talent, technologies, and tech stacks that Around is employing to keep us connected in the new normal of collaborative meetings and hybrid work environments. They discussed noise and echo suppression, audio-only meetings, latency, scaling, UI, load balancing, the decision to use Electron, Chromium, and Mediasoup, and much more. Watch it here!
