WebRTC for Video Streaming

Enable real-time communications directly from your browser.


What Is WebRTC?


WebRTC is a free, open framework that enables real-time communications through web browsers, without requiring any additional encoders or plug-ins.


With WebRTC, you can embed real-time video directly into your browser-based solution to create an engaging and interactive streaming experience. From telehealth solutions to gaming apps, users can actively participate in immersive video-based environments without being concerned about latency.

Going Beyond Standard WebRTC


Traditionally used for one-to-one video chat, Wowza’s WebRTC video streaming platform allows you to stream WebRTC end-to-end or convert the streaming format for large-scale broadcasts. We also provide the resources to build with confidence.


What benefit does WebRTC’s open framework provide if you can’t figure out how to build from it? Wowza’s testing and publishing tools, documentation, APIs, and GitHub repositories provide everything you need to ease the process. From recording to authentication, we designed our robust and customizable features and modules to help you build an interactive streaming solution in a snap.
