Hi all,

thans for the prompt feedback and a happy new year 2024.

Good explanation of the functionality of WebRTC. In fact the combination of the streams serverside will be a problem. So I'll try the client side OBS solution.

On the oher hand I found serveral articles about headless chrome and puppeteer ... I'll read more about it.

Thanks a lot for your information and best greetings,

Galene does not do any multiplexing: when a meeting consists of multiple
streams, then all of the streams are sent to all participants.

Youtube requires a single stream, so at some point somebody needs to
decode the videos, build a mosaic view, and then recode the videos. It
cannot be the Galene server, since the server does not do any recoding
(that's what makes it cheap and fast). The best place is the browser,
which already knows how to decode WebRTC streams.

So rendering in the browser and recoding using OBS seems like a perfectly
fine solution. Another solution would be to perform the recoding in the
browser itself, but I'm not sure how easy it would be.

Happy new year!
