BrainCert Launches World’s First WebRTC based HTML5 Virtual Classroom In 50 Languages

We are super excited to announce the launch of world’s first WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications) based HTML5 Virtual Classroom in 50 Languages. HTML5 is an open source markup language that does not require a plug-in to run its applications. Removing the need for proprietary plug-ins like Adobe Flash certainly closes a common attack vector, and because HTML5 updates are delivered through browser updates, they're far more likely to be applied than patches for plug-ins.

We have replaced our Flash based online virtual classroom with a new HTML5 version for better functionality. We are aware of the serious security risks and vulnerabilities posed by Flash plug-in. Google, Mozilla, Amazon all have banned Flash, Apple doesn’t support it and Facebook is worried too. Thus, it was a necessary decision for us to switch to a safer HTML5 version which is supported by all top desktop browsers and we are soon to add support for iOS/Android devices.

Introducing HTML5 Screen Sharing!

The latest release of the Chrome web browser, version 42, will block Oracle's Java plugin by default as well as other extensions that use the deprecated NPAPI. BrainCert has moved away from Java towards HTML5 technology to enable screen sharing in a Live Virtual Classroom session. Traditional screen sharing solution providers require their users to download and install propriety software to host and attend meetings. Sure, there may be a hiccup every now and then when the network gets congested, but for the most part every time you type a letter from your keyboard, wham, it appears on the remote computer instantly.  BrainCert now supports quick & easy screen sharing right in your web browser using the latest HTML5 technology with no clunky software downloads, or plugins like Java.

Securely stream audio and video files inside Virtual Classroom

Now you can securely stream your audio and video files in a live Virtual Classroom session. BrainCert uses RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol)  for dynamic streaming, where the video quality automatically adjusts to changes in bandwidth. The biggest advantage of RTMP streaming is that it will show you the video from the beginning, and lets you seek to any point in time, before it has actually arrived. The RTMP server automatically streams bytes from the location requested. Hence you need not wait. You can skip what you don't want to see by simple seeking ahead.
