WebRTC makes Social API even more social WebRTC is a powerful new tool that enables web app developers to include real-time video calling and data sharing capabilities in their products. While many of us are excited about WebRTC because it will enable several cool gaming applications and improve the performance and availability of video conferencing apps, WebRTC is proving to be a great tool for social apps. Sometimes when you’re chatting with a friend, you just want to click on their name and see and talk with them in real-time. Imagine being able to do that without any glitches or hassles, and then while talking with them, easily share almost anything on your computer or device: vacation photos, memorable videos – or even just a link to a news story you thought they might be interested in – simply by dragging the item into your video chat window. This has become a reality. We’ve created a demo that combines our Social API and WebRTC.
Media Capture and Streams 4. MediaStream API 4.1 Introduction The MediaStream interface is used to represent streams of media data, typically (but not necessarily) of audio and/or video content, e.g. from a local camera. DNS 101 DNS (Domain Name System) You likely have many applications running on your laptop right now, and chances are some of them require an external resource or piece of data that will be retrieved from across a network. In order for your applications to access these resources they need to know their location. The location is typically identified by an ip address and are written in either decimal or hexadecimal. When dealing with ips, they can be very hard to memorise; especially as there are two different forms of ip:

This is why programmers work with programming languages, as they provide a nice high-level abstraction layer that protects us from a lot of these concerns. Agony of Choice Deprecated Commands?
