    WHIP, NDI and Janus: genesis of a broadcasting demo

    WHIP is an exciting new way to use WebRTC for broadcasting ingest. It won't be of much help until it's integrated in widespread broadcasting tools, though. This talk will share some info on how to use OBS to produce media, and use NDI to feed a WHIP client to broadcast it online via Janus/WebRTC.

    Your state is my state and my state is your state: a tale of WebRTC chat history and shared P2P state

    When adding text chat history to Daily Prebuilt, an embeddable WebRTC video chat interface, we needed to avoid storing and maintaining potentially sensitive user data. In this talk, we’ll share patterns for solving shared non-persistent P2P state across thousands of clients via network packets.

    The dark arts of debugging WebRTC calls

    Everyone has experienced video call issues over the past 20months - robotic voice, video glitches, low quality video.. What is actually going on?
    In this talk, we'll intentionally deteriorate a call and observe how these issues appear to the user and explore how they manifest in WebRTC metrics.

    Tim Panton

    Writing a new open source webRTC stack in a week.

    As part of an IETF hackathon I decided to see if I could build a new open source WebRTC implementation.

    WebRTC is just a pile of pre-existing protocols, all of which have multiple existing open source implementations.

    I'd just glue them together, right?

    How hard could it be?

    Neil Brown

    WebRTC and the (mostly English) law: an update for developers and providers

    In 20 minutes (to give plenty of time for questions), Neil will cram in as many "legal update" themes as he can, focussing on things relevant to developers and providers of WebRTC services. The focus will be English law, but some of the themes may be relevant more broadly.

    Video backgrounds are becoming blurry, but the future is clear: more machine learning models in WebRTC applications

    Finally, machine learning models have made it to the browser. Virtual backgrounds and blurs are everywhere!

    In this talk, let's explore how a simple background blur works, how you can code your own blur for a WebRTC call, and most interestingly - what more can we build from here?

    Lorenzo Emilitri

    Using Elixir for complex, real-time telephony processing: some lessons learnt

    Elixir is a language based on Erlang/OTP, a platform designed to support real-time distribuited telephony applications with zero downtime. It sounds like a perfect match for a real-time event processing application based on telephony data received from MS Teams. Or is it? Let's find out.

    Joachim Vanheuverzwijn

    Speech recognition on a shoestring budget

    It all began with a second hand video card and a sleepless night. I started hoarding hardware and talking to the machines.
    It escalated and now they talk back…
    We’ve been quietly making our own speech recognition models ever since and will explain you what's feasible and how to do it.

    Mathis Engelbart

    Bandwidth Estimation from Scratch: Achieving optimal bandwidth utilization and what I learned along the way.

    Interactive real-time media transport requires specific congestion control algorithms that pose different requirements and challenges from the ones known from TCP. I present what I learned from implementing and testing bandwidth estimation for Pion in Go.

    Reaching new heights: how we added support for 500 participant meetings to Jitsi Meet

    Jitsi Meet has been powering meetings for millions of users already, but we had limited the meeting size to a maximum of 100 users.

    We heard our users loud and clear, they wanted larger meetings! So we rolled up our sleeves and got to work.

    In this presentation we'll see how we did it.

    Pulling text out of a (mediasoup) hat and other magic tricks for a captivating live transcription performance

    Daily focuses on WebRTC audio and video, but what about audio/video to text? This talk shares how we implemented transcription, including the magic tricks to pull RTP audio streams out of mediasoup, create an LPCM stream, send audio via web sockets, and get the transcription output back to clients.

    Răzvan Crainea

    Media high availability/re-anchoring using OpenSIPS 3.2

    Find out how a SIP proxy can provide RTP high availability for calls that use media relay servers (such as RTPProxy or RTPEngine) using standard SIP capabilities, using a simple technique that re-anchors the ongoing call’s media to a different node/engine.

    It's time to WHIP WebRTC into shape

    For many in broadcast and streaming, WebRTC is not “complete”, as it lacks a standard signaling protocol to make it work like RTMP or RTSP.

    WHIP, the WebRTC HTTP Ingest Protocol, was developed to solve the biggest pain point with adopting WebRTC as a serious contribution protocol: Media Ingest.

    Deal with legacy, the ugly way

    For some parts of our setup we stuck with asterisk 11. It is out so Security Fixes for far too long, it uses Libs far too old. How can we get this into modern Hardware, modern Kernel, modern Security?
    We found a way....

    Darren Cubitt
