Best language/framework/library for voice chat over the web?
April 15, 2015 5:38 PM   Subscribe

I'm thinking about starting a coding project that involves live-streaming and recording voice chats populated by different users of a web app. Does anyone have any recommendations on what technology to use? WebRTC? Something else? And, depending on the technology, do you have a recommendation on the language I should use? If someone has made a module/gem or an open source project that would make it easier to get up and running, that'd be rad. I have experience with Ruby and JavaScript and would be comfortable using either or both.

Probably jsSIP is what you want.

I've not used it yet, but it requires a SIP-capable server as well.

It seems to me that the thing that would dominate this choice is library support, rather than other language features, so if jsSIP is adequate there, then Javascript should be OK.
