WebTorrent – Bringing P2P to the masses with WebRTC
WebRTC changes everything! For the first time, we can do peer-to-peer communication in the browser without plugins, extensions, or installations. This enables an entirely new class of applications to be built for the web. This talk will look at WebTorrent, a BitTorrent client for the browser that uses the WebRTC Data Channel. By making P2P technology easier to use, we're making it accessible to new swathes of users who were previously intimidated, confused, and unable to participate before now.
