So I had the opportunity to field test for the first time the #ZipCall #P2P video calling platform, and called overseas from directly within my browser.

The result? Faster, better quality than WhatsApp, and the - true - freedom to use any platform you want.

Needless to say, I'm switching away forever from nonfree software when calling my significant contacts from now on. Victory!

@kzimmermann Looks promising! It doesn't say if it's opensource but I guess it is? How is it serverless if it runs off a website though?

There's a github button below the website leading to the source code.
About p2p, i believe it only needs server to load the website and then goes p2p locally. Ideally it should never connect to the website's server after its fully loaded or maybe after your call connection has been made. But this has to be tested to know for sure.


@futureisfoss @kzimmermann I see. I just tried calling myself from PC to mobile and sadly it didn't work yet, but hope it is ready soon :)
