How do I integrate WebRTC in VR

What happens with CU-RTC-Web ???

Fight for real-time communication on the web

Original article from: Golem:

Microsoft has submitted its own draft to the W3C's WebRTC working group called “Customizable, Ubiquitous Real Time Communication over the Web” (CU-RTC-Web) for real-time communication in the browser and is thus on a confrontation course with Google.

The W3C is working on a standard for real-time communication on the web, which should enable video conferences, chats and other peer-to-peer communication directly in the browser. So far, Google has shaped the development, with the company having published WebRTC, an HTML5 framework for real-time communication under a BSD-like license. This enables web applications for VoIP, chat and video telephony to be implemented. Mozilla has taken up Google's suggestion that both want to integrate WebRTC into their browsers

In order to create a free standard for real-time communication with Google WebRTC, Google is striving for standardization by the W3C and the IETF. But this is exactly where Microsoft is now offering a competing draft, because Microsoft's present draft does not go far enough. Behind Microsoft's design are, among others, the Skype architects Matthew Kaufman and Martin Thomson, SIP inventor Jonathan Rosenberg and Lync architect Bernard Aboba.

  • Scheme for Microsoft's CU-RTC-Web

In the opinion of Microsoft, the draft submitted by Google is not interoperable with existing VoIP telephones and cell phones or across firewalls and routers. Instead, it is only designed for video communication between browsers under ideal conditions and does not allow an application to control how content is transmitted. Things like safety consoles, audio streaming services or baby monitoring are difficult to implement.

In addition, Google's WebRTC draft is not stateless and heavily dependent on SIP, a technology that Microsoft believes is out of date. The approach also makes the implementation of applications unnecessarily difficult.
