What Web Conferencing Has That WebRTC Does Not

Posted by Sabrina George on Fri, Jul 10, 2015 @ 11:15 AM
Right now, WebRTC is receiving a lot of mainstream media attention due in large part to the fact that it’s free and comes with the promise of easy browser-based videoconferencing. But is WebRTC worthy of all of the hype it is receiving? Dig deeper and you’ll notice a very big flaw: It’s unsupported by Microsoft and Apple browsers. This means if you move forward with a WebRTC-based solution, you will not be able to use it to communicate with business partners or customers on Safari or Internet Explorer. A traditional Web conferencing product like Onstream Meetings, however, can be used with any browser regardless of its developer. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about issues stemming from incompatible browsers, like confused end users and missed messages. Further, you won’t have to ask your contacts to switch to a browser with which they are not comfortable. Another great aspect of a solution like Onstream Meetings is that it doesn’t require a software installation on your corporate computers. Since Onstream Meetings operates through the cloud, you simply log in when you want to access the software. This also means you will not have to perform system updates. WebRTC, for that matter, is open source—so it will require your developers to keep a close watch for updates and security patches. Further, through Onstream Meetings, you will gain access to over 100 conferencing features that you can use to enhance your online meetings and ensure great conversations. Click here to learn more about why you should steer clear of WebRTC and invest in a robust conferencing solution like Onstream Meetings.
