These are chat archives for andyet/SimpleWebRTC
The secret sauce is on server, and your STUN/TURN servers.
That's a serious problem for, well... any serious implementation of a WebRTC based business. ;)
I seen ten times guys writing cool internal Skypes for their forums, only to getting them off line for "bandwidth exceeded" on the next week. :shipit:
The TURN servers aren't used when both computers who talks are shown directly in the Internet. Aka you have public IP on the computer.
That was valid years ago, but today even at home we have shiny local networks behind routers, or some internet providers "hide" you in the back of their routers, from a wide range of reasons, usually claiming child protection, but I believe that usually some man in black from a three letters institution is a bit curious about what you do on-line.
Long story short, a modest VPS is more than enough to handle a community with usually 1000 users on-line.
Give them video-chat over WebRTC and put the TURN in the same VPS, the you have the guarantee that you VPS would be put down in no time.
And do not trust the hosting providers stories about unlimited traffic at x.y.z bandwidth. They say that supposing that you do not consume more than 1% from resources.
