Working with WebRTC

Anybody who worked with WebRTC will agree that there is a huge lack of learning resources and on top of that on every few years, WebRTC standards changes and changes are big sometimes that makes previous resources outdated, creating more gap.

WebRTC is a free, open project that provides browsers and mobile applications with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple APIs. The WebRTC components have been optimized to best serve this purpose.

I have found most of the resources either not clear, not compatible with the current WebRTC library or very incomplete. During my searching for resources, I have found a few as good resources.

Web

Android

iOS

Flutter

These are very high-level examples, I have a plan to write a full-fledged tutorial on this topic soon.

Hi Sadman, any progress on this? Looking to implement video calls in Flutter. Took a look at agora.io, which is easy to implement, but can get quite expensive once the user base grows.

Hi Jaime,

Agora has a sample app for flutter video chat: github.com/AgoraIO-Community/Agora.... Although it is more affordable, WebRTC has its own shortcoming if you want to scale up in terms of the number users in the call and multiple platform supports. I am happy to answer any questions. :)
