This text is the second in a series of publications on the topic of the WebRTC data channel. At the end of the previous post, we left WebRTC back in year 2013, problem-ridden, though full of potential. Time for redemption.
An overview of the WebRTC Data Channel and common problems that arise in its use. This post and its sequels are based on a talk our Chief Architect, Svetlin Mladenov, delivered during the WebRTC conference expo Paris 2014. The accompanying slides are available here.
WebRTC Conference 2014 is taking place in Paris next week (16-18 Dec), and two of our own will give a talk on the WebRTC data channel. Join Viblast’s Svetlin Mladenov, chief architect, and Nikolay Dimitrov, lead developer, on Day I: WebRTC Training (Dec 16, Tuesday) at 11:45 a.m.
Their presentation will cover WebRTC’s data channel from the different implementations it has for audio, video and data transfer to words of (moderate) wisdom based on our practical experience. Viblast relies on the data channel to enable the peer-to-peer (P2P) connections between viewers that form our peer-assisted delivery network (PDN).
The latest update to Viblast’s live video streaming platform added support for the much requested adaptive bitrate streaming. It became available immediately to the innovative (and brave) bunch that has already integrated Viblast, helping them serve their viewers the optimal viewer experience.
Our matey Petar Bojkov, COO, walked the plank and returned victorious today: Viblast has just won this year’s European Pirate Summit pitch competition.

The big World Cup game is starting and stuck at work, you are reduced to gnawing at your desk in frustration every time you see that dreaded buffering sign just seconds away from a free kick. Gnaw no more. Bulgarian-based Viblast offers an innovative solution for HD streaming and, less than two months after its official launch, has bagged several contracts, including one to facilitate the streaming parts of the World Cup event to Bulgarian audiences, to the collective relief of office furniture everywhere.
At the inaugural WebRTC Global Summit, Viblast won the Best Innovation award in recognition of the company’s viable implementation of WebRTC’s data channel for video delivery.
