    Design Goals

    mediasoup and its client side libraries are designed to accomplish with the following goals:

    • Be a SFU (Selective Forwarding Unit).
    • Support both WebRTC and plain RTP input and output.
    • Be a Node.js module in server side.
    • Be a tiny JavaScript and C++ libraries in client side.
    • Be minimalist: just handle the media layer.
    • Be signaling agnostic: do not mandate any signaling protocol.
    • Be super low level API.
    • Support all existing WebRTC endpoints.
    • Enable integration with well known multimedia libraries/tools.

    Architecture

    Use Cases

    mediasoup and its client side libraries provide a super low level API. They are intended to enable different use cases and scenarios, without any constraint or assumption. Some of these use cases are:

    • Group video chat applications.
    • One-to-many (or few-to-many) broadcasting applications in real-time.
    • RTP streaming.

    Features

    • ECMAScript 6 low level API.
    • Multi-stream: multiple audio/video streams over a single ICE + DTLS transport.
    • IPv6 ready.
    • ICE / DTLS / RTP / RTCP over UDP and TCP.
    • Simulcast and SVC support.
    • Congestion control.
    • Sender and receiver bandwidth estimation with spatial/temporal layers distribution algorithm.
    • Data message exchange (via WebRTC DataChannels, SCTP over plain UDP, and direct termination in Node.js).
    • Extremely powerful (media worker subprocess coded in C++ on top of libuv).
