Serverless architecture allows you to build and run applications and services without having to manage infrastructure. Nikhil demonstrates setting up a serverless backend for a video conferencing app powered by the Amazon Chime SDK.
Capitalizing on the considerable flexibility that the Amazon Chime SDK offers for customizing the UI, Marcell takes yet another step in our growing demo application: active speaker detection to identify who is talking and manipulate the user interface to favor that stream over the rest.
In a previous post, we showed you how to build a simple two party video chat using the Amazon Chime SDK, which we love as a scalable and flexible live video solution built on top of a globally distributed backend. Today, we will move forward on that code to build a multi-party video conference.
The Amazon Chime SDK gives you the power and capabilities of many lower level solutions, while still offering the abstraction and built-in media server infrastructure of the simpler CPaaS solutions. In this post, we’ll use the Amazon Chime SDK to make a 1-1 call by building a video chat using WebRTC with React and Node Fastify.
