This is to announce that work has been going on for a while to implement
the WebRTC specification (http://www.w3.org/TR/webrtc/) into WebKit. I
apologize for not sending this email earlier.
Summary from the spec:
There are a number of facets to video-conferencing in HTML:
- Getting a multimedia stream (video, audio, or both) from local devices
(video cameras, microphones, Web cams) or from prerecorded files provided
by the user.
- Recording such streams locally.
- Connecting to remote peers using NAT-traversal technologies such as
ICE, STUN, and TURN.
- Sending the locally-produced streams to remote peers and receiving
streams from remote peers.
- Displaying such streams (both the locally-produced ones and the
remotely-obtained ones) locally using the video or audio elements.
- Sending arbitrary data to remote peers.
This document defines the APIs used for these features. This specification
is being developed in conjunction with a protocol specification developed
by the IETF RTCWEB group.
The work is mostly handled by me (tommyw at google.com) and Adam Bergkvist (
adam.bergkvist at ericsson.com) with
Tommy Widenflycht, Senior Software Engineer

And yes, I have to include the above in every outgoing email according to
