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.
Even a custom development shop like ours often uses a CPaaS solution when our clients need to get to market quickly or require a large range of communication options within their WebRTC application. Vonage’s comprehensive suite of Communication APIs is a definite go-to for us. We even built it into our own SimplyDoc Telehealth Starter Kit.
