Decisions about Agora

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Agora in their tech stack.

Hello. So, I wanted to make a decision on whether to use WebRTC or Amazon Chime for a conference call (meeting). My plan is to build an app with features like video broadcasting, and the ability for all the participants to talk and chat. I have used Agora's web SDK for video broadcasting, and Socket.IO for chat features. As I read the comparison between Amazon Chime and WebRTC, it further intrigues me on what I should use given my scenario? Is there any way that so many related technologies could be a hindrance to the other? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks. Ritwik Neema

Hi, Stackshare community, I plan to build an app where people can go live, and users can watch him, 1 to many, follow each other, and text.

I am expecting a huge number of users to use the app in the first month (100k+)

I made the UX/UI design, and my designer asked me to find a developer.

I want your advice. What server is the best for video quality and fast text messages (like uplive, bigo)?

Ex. Agora, Twilio, Amazon Chime, Aws, or fiberbass

I need for both operating systems, (ios, android). Do you recommend Flutter?

  • I have AWS server in my country (Bahrain), and 80% of the audience are from the same area. Does it help in the video quality between the audience?

Thank you for this helpful website.
