[Cerowrt-devel] mo bettah open source multi-party videoconferncing in an age of bloated uplinks?

sort of an outgrowth of this convo:


I imagine worldwide videoconferencing quality could be much better if
we could convince more folk to
finally install sqm or upgrade to a working docsis 3.1 solution, etc.
Maybe some rag somewhere will finally pick up on bufferbloat solutions
and run with it? Or we can write some articles? Or reach out to school
systems? Or?

I've been fiddling with jitsi, and am about to give freeswitch a try.
Last I looked freeswitch's otherwise pretty nifty conference bridge
didn't dynamically adjust at all due to e2e signalling, but that was
years ago. (?)

I have to admit that p2p multiparty videoconferencing seems more
plausible in a de-bufferbloated age, but
haven't explored what tools are available. (?)

There's also been this somewhat entertaining convo on the ietf mbone
list: https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/msg/mboned/2thFQk_IYn38XCZBQavhUmOd6tk/

Around me there has been this huge interest in "streaming". The user
agreement for these (see restream.io's) is scary - and the copyright
police have control... but I am very happy to report that even a
couple really lousy long distance fq_codel'd ath9k links work *really*
well (with facebook's implementation), where a non fq_codeled link
(ath10k) failed miserably... and setting up a reflector in nginx also
failed miserably.

Anyone working on the ath10k AQL backport for openwrt as yet?
