As announced to a happy few at webengine hackfest last month, Centricular just released a brand new implementation of WebRTC on top of GStreamer. For those who do not know Centricular, it s a small company specialising in Media and GStreamer. They were part of the OpenWebRTC Team, under contract by Ericsson, and also part of the webrtc in webkit project.

and for those who can’t wait to read the official blog post to test it, some demos are accessible here: https://github.com/centricular/gstwebrtc-demos/
You will need some expertise in GStreamer build process, particularly on how to compile against “bad gst plugins”, but nothing that someone who master the intricacies of depot_tools and libwebrtc couldn’t handle 😉
