This week in Live Web we are using https and webRTC to play with the webcam over a websocket.
The app that I built takes a photo of the user 3 seconds after connection, then broadcasts it out to other users that are connected. The user never sees their photo. As more photos come in the photos become smaller and smaller to stay within the height of the page.
In theory, eventually all of the photos would become so small that the individual photos would make up a photo on their own.
Test it out here: https://lmj332.itp.io:5000/index.html
