WebRTC is an emerging technology supported by the majority of web browser that helps solve the latency issue but introduces its own set of challenges. This session will discuss what makes a successful deployment of WebRTC. Learn what open source and proprietary technologies can be used to jump-start a deployment and what the impact of NAT traversal for peer-to-peer deployments of WebRTC (STUN, TURN, ICE) has. Hear what tools enable WebRTC in a plugin-based architecture that is composed of fully open source software and how you can put it to use.

D103: HOW TO: Building a More Robust Cloud Encoder With FFMPEG & More

Track D – Thursday 2 November 
13:45 – 14:30

With the speed of technology today, one of the most important parts of software is adaptability. By taking control of your own encoding and packaging, you can greatly reduce cost and maintain high adaptability and agility to meet your needs now and in the future. When working with cloud encoding, there are several transcoding and packaging options, and the APIs for these options will change over time. We talk about how to build a more dynamic cloud encoder that can use the best tool for a specific job by decoupling the tools from the core application, as well as how to mix and match multiple operations concurrently on a single encoding task. Operations include WebVTT and AAC sidecar manifests, DASH assets, metadata, video quality, and stream muxing/demuxing. This session covers some of the strategies we’ve used to handle dynamic cloud encoding and packaging for live and VOD delivery.
