Pros of WebRTC
Public Decisions about WebRTC

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose WebRTC 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

I am trying to implement video calling in a React Native app through Amazon Kinesis. But I was unlucky to find anything related to this on the web. Do you have any example code I can use? or any tutorial? If not, how easy is it to bridge the native library to RN? And what should I use WebRTC or Amazon Chime?? Thanks
