A pure Go implementation of the WebRTC API
Pion WebRTC v3.0.0 has been released! See the release notes to learn about new features and breaking changes.
If you aren't able to upgrade yet check the tags for the latest
We would love your feedback! Please create GitHub issues or join the Slack channel to follow development and speak with the maintainers.
Go Modules are mandatory for using Pion WebRTC. So make sure you set
export GO111MODULE=on, and explicitly specify
/v3 when importing.
example applications contains code samples of common things people build with Pion WebRTC.
example-webrtc-applications contains more full featured examples that use 3rd party libraries.
awesome-pion contains projects that have used Pion, and serve as real world examples of usage.
GoDoc is an auto generated API reference. All our Public APIs are commented.
Now go build something awesome! Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
- Send a video file to multiple browser in real time for perfectly synchronized movie watching.
- Send a webcam on an embedded device to your browser with no additional server required!
- Securely send data between two servers, without using pub/sub.
- Record your webcam and do special effects server side.
- Build a conferencing application that processes audio/video and make decisions off of it.
- Remotely control a robots and stream its cameras in realtime.
Want to learn more about WebRTC?
Check out WebRTC for the Curious. A book about WebRTC in depth, not just about the APIs. Learn the full details of ICE, SCTP, DTLS, SRTP, and how they work together to make up the WebRTC stack.
This is also a great resource if you are trying to debug. Learn the tools of the trade and how to approach WebRTC issues.
This book is vendor agnostic and will not have any Pion specific information.

The library is in active development, please refer to the roadmap to track our major milestones. We also maintain a list of Big Ideas these are things we want to build but don't have a clear plan or the resources yet. If you are looking to get involved this is a great place to get started! We would also love to hear your ideas! Even if you can't implement it yourself, it could inspire others.
Pion has an active community on the Slack.
Follow the Pion Twitter for project updates and important WebRTC news.
We are always looking to support your projects. Please reach out if you have something to build! If you need commercial support or don't want to use public methods you can contact us at [email protected]
