Btw, if you want to test webrtc in your browser, I came across
<URL: http://gingertech.net/2014/03/19/apprtc-googles-webrtc-test-app-and-its-parameters/ >
today, and it point to <URL: https://apprtc.appspot.com/ > which
automatically create a webrtc chat room with space for two people.  I
also found <URL: https://appear.in/ > which have a more slick web
interface and handle up to 8 people in the same conference.

This look just like the kind of conference solution I would like to
have on my FreedomBox.  Just need to make sure it is encrypted
properly. :)

Note, I only got it working with chromium in Debian Wheezy.  Opera
12.16 did not work at all, and iceweasel the appspot.com page kind of
worked, but not quite (seemed to occupy both spots in the conference),
while with appear.in iceweasel in Wheezy worked just fine. :)

Happy hacking
