webcam streaming [message #618912] Wed, 15 August 2007 23:36 Go to next message

Hi

I'm looking into writing a video conference application. To begin with I
would like to be able to stream both webcams (yours and whoever is on the
other end). I just started looking into the subject and how to do it and I
found the ECF project.

Is there any work done on this? Any sample application? Should I consider
ECF for this kind of thing or it would be more efficient to just write
streaming some other way?

Regards
Joaquin Grech

Hi Joaquin,

ECF's APIs expose pt-to-pt and/or group messaging (e.g. datashare API
etc http://wiki.eclipse.org/ECF_API_Docs) for rt collab/conferencing, etc.

We have a provider architecture, so that the actual wire protocol
underneath the API can/is implemented with a combination of open and/or
proprietary protocols (e.g. XMPP, IRC, IAX, SIP, JMS, etc., etc).

So far, we have been more focused on working with streaming audio for
VOIP conferencing rather than streaming video, so we haven't done much
with creating providers that implement existing and/or new
video-specific codecs or streaming protocols. But we certainly would
welcome such work.

We would be happy to work with you to create an ECF provider that was
specifically created for video streaming OR you could use some of the
existing providers (assuming they are performant enough...which I
suspect would be an issue).

Apologies for the long answer, but unfortunately it's not a yes or no
scenario.

Scott
