I have a talking-heads application … faces in small windows embedded in websites for personal finance, etc. I’m trying to figure out if MediaSoup is the way to go for the future.
To save client power and bandwidth, avoid spinning fans and all that, we’ve set this up to run at CIF resolution: 352x288 x 15fps (with an older way of delivering media). It simply doesn’t make sense to use higher resolutions just to scale them down to the small windows.
But, when I hack up the mediasoup_sandbox to set those constraints for .getUserMedia(), the mediasoup / SVC system chooses a very low bandwidth and the video comes out nasty-looking.
(I’m new to SVC. It’s possible I’m thinking about this wrong in the SVC world.)
Can somebody point me in the right direction to figure out how to resolve this?
And, thanks for MediaSoup, great stuff!
