Over the past year, we have shown a number of demonstrations using our WebRTC-enabled WebKit engine, all running on a Linux laptop. Now, we've taken it a step further, and what we'll show today is a web app using WebRTC to make a video call between our linux browser and an iPad.
From the iPad home screen, we launch the iLeif app, which will emulate a browser for us. It loads the simple voice chat web app by default. Here we can see the same web app running on the linux browser. We'll initiate the call from there.
When we answer the call on the iPad, the PeerConnection object will establish a connection between the iPad and linux browser. Once that is done, we have an ongoing voice call.
Finally, we'll add video. This will start recording video from the iPad, while the linux browser will ask for which camera to use. Once that is done, we'll have a full two-way voice and video conversation. You can see it here, running between the linux browser and the iPad, using the same getUserMedia and PeerConnection APIs that we've shown previously, on both devices.
