The WebRTC Cookbook is the second book by Andrii Sergiienko. His first book was WebRTC Blueprints, was a hard core book – the first one with guts to take WebRTC books to the extreme topics at that time.
WebRTC Cookbook takes a more orderly approach, where Andrii picks several topics and explains them briefly, in a step by step manual. He also provides good follow up material for those who wish to learn more.
Things you will find in this book:
- Peer connection related topic, with the interesting bits in the STUN and TURN configuration
- Security issues – HTTPS, TURN server security, firewalls, etc.
- VoIP – integrating with Asterisk and FreeSWITCH
- Debugging – stats, webrtc-internals, Wireshark, …
- Video filters (unfortunately no audio ones)
- Native apps – iOS, Android and OpenWebRTC.io
- Integrating with some of the WebRTC frameworks and services out there
- “advanced” stuff – things you’d want to do to add polish to your service
This is a good book for your WebRTC library. It acts as a nice reference to go to when you need to quickly skim a topic.
