Everyone knows skype – but skype allows only one-to-one video conferncing – also it is closed source bought up by Microsoft.

Adobe Connect is a cool collaborative closed source Product – which allows a community chat – screen sharing and video conferencing based on Flash and Java-Server.

Google Hangout is another closed source browser plugin – needs separate from browser software – to run.

the question is: can in the era of html5 everybody run his/her own web-video-conferecing site-server without paying high licence fees or using closed source software?

It seems possible 🙂


but it is just a tech-demo can’t say anything about everyday usability.

don’t ask me if this connection is encrypted or not…
