Working on a Loongson(www.loongson.cn) PC, goal is to make it a Meeting Terminal. Because its CPU is MIPS arch, there could be lots of unexpected problems, so the first thought hit us is WebRTC.
This post is the first step to research into this topic.
It’s expected to have 3 billion WebRTC users by 2016. Believe or not, WebRTC is coming into your sight.
EasyRTC is a full-stack open source WebRTC toolkit suitable for building highly secure, enterprise WebRTC applications.
EasyRTC is completely free and open source under a BSD 2 license. No usage costs or other hidden fees. So feel free to use it.
Here is a simple guide of installing EasyRTC on a Ubuntu:
1. Download source code
Suppose you are using source directory as /opt/workspace
git clone https://github.com/priologic/easyrtc /opt/workspace/easyrtc
2. Copy all the files in server_example/ to /opt/web/easyrtc.
Create folder hold the EasyRTC application
sudo mkdir /opt/web sudo mkdir /opt/web/easyrtc
sudo cp -r /opt/workspace/easyrtc/server_example/* /var/nodes/easyrtc
3. Security Considerations (not going into specifics)
Create user for node.js (or use existing web user), suppose you are using www:www, you can chown the nodes folder to be owned by this user
sudo chown -R www:www /opt/web/nodes
4. Install Node.js
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup | sudo bash - sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
5. Run npm install from the installation folder to install dependent packages (including EasyRTC)
cd /var/nodes/easyrtc sudo npm install
6. Start EasyRTC by running node server.js
7. Browse the examples using a WebRTC enabled browser. (defaults to port 8080)
