WebRTC vs XMPP: What are the differences?

WebRTC: A free, open project that provides browsers and mobile applications with Real-Time Communications *. It is a free, open project that enables web browsers with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple JavaScript APIs. The WebRTC components have been optimized to best serve this purpose; *XMPP:** An open XML technology for real-time communication. It is a set of open technologies for instant messaging, presence, multi-party chat, voice and video calls, collaboration, lightweight middleware, content syndication, and generalized routing of XML data.

WebRTC belongs to "Web and Video Conferencing" category of the tech stack, while XMPP can be primarily classified under "Container Tools".

LooWID, Streamroot, and Intouch Health are some of the popular companies that use WebRTC, whereas XMPP is used by Mendix, Vidyo.io, and Relayo. WebRTC has a broader approval, being mentioned in 16 company stacks & 17 developers stacks; compared to XMPP, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

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

I would recommend Amazon Chime. If I were you, I would eventually look into working with WebRTC as it is very interesting and teaches you a lot. I dove deep into webRTC recently building a webinar broadcasting application (one-to-many) and I can say it is difficult to understand how things actually work and to get it stable. I mean you can vaguely read up on it and get some things to work by copying code on StackOverflow or using a library but that wouldn't teach you much.

In short, go with Chime because it is easy to get started especially if you have a time constraint. But look into webRTC in the future as it enables you to build your own "Chime". Hope this helped!
