Here is the latest on WebRTC  from your friends at webrtcweekly.com.


When an Online Teaching Job Becomes a Window into Child Abuse (EdSurge)
An interesting and important read. Left me speachless.

How callstats.io Monitors WebRTC Sessions Without Compromising Data Privacy (callstats.io)
That Zoom incident is getting everyone into an explanation frenzy – a good thing. Here’s also Doxy.me.

Agora shows off its packet loss resiliency capabilities.

This one is interesting. Especially as I think there were other CPaaS vendors up for grabs.

Interesting how WebRTC tech can be used for privacy leaks as well as beefing up privacy.
