Welcome to Briefing. Yet another secure video chat.
Privacy is the driving force behind this project. It uses secure technologies like WebRTC to directly connect between participants. The website that provides the web app and mediates the communication stores as few data as possible and does not know anything about the contents of established conversations. No accounts are required. No cookies are used.
The difference between Briefing and most similar projects is, that it does not use a central server that distributes the video streams (SFU). The advantage of an SFU is that it saves bandwidth due to the fact that the own video does not being uploaded to each participant but only once. The SFU can also do more optimizations the clients might not support. But then the video signal is not end-to-end encrypted any more i.e. you have to trust the SFU provider. Briefing instead sends data from peer to peer directly ("Mesh") and therefore the data does not travel over the server under normal operation. The WebRTC peers however still trust the signaling server for the authenticity of the peer-to-peer communications encryption in place.

Klicker UZH is a web application that supports the interaction between speakers and their audience in various ways. During a Klicker session (e.g., a lecture), a speaker may pose questions to be answered by participants over their devices. If so desired by the speaker, the audience may also rate the speed and difficulty of the session and provide open feedback. Next to the well-known speaker-to-audience interaction, this enables interactions initiated by the audience, which can serve as a useful orientation to the lecturer.
FFAStrans is an unattended Windows tool aimed at broadcasters and video professionals for automatic transcoding of media files through drop folders. It's based on FFMpeg and relies on AviSynth for filters. Also it's one of the few free tools which supports multiple watch folder with separate transcoding configurations. It's best compared with the likes of Telestreams Episode and Vantage, Harmonics ProCoder, Digital Rapids Transcode Manager, Adobe Media Encoder, Amberfin iCR etc. FFAStrans is targeted at those with lots of different media formats coming from lots of different places and wants the transcoding process done automatically.
