How does murderBear differ from other systems? Other systems require users to install software or limit users to text, audio, and/or video chat. There are more methods and mediums of communication out there, and murderBear brings some of those mediums to its users. murderBear provides traditional text, audio, and video chat, and murderBear also provides a real- time canvas and file sharing. Using the latest web technologies, murderBear requires only the users’ web browser with no additional software installation.
Imagine this: You need to study with friends, but a hurricane has struck preventing any member of your group from being able to make it to your planned physical meeting place. How are you supposed to hold your group meeting? murderBear will be an online application allowing all the members of your group who have access to a computer and the Internet to meet digitally.
murderBear was our senior design project for CSE 4101
Experimenting with Web Sockets and hoping the P2P aspects would be usable at the time were the main goal of this project. We used the Tornado and Socket.io libraries. RTMP was used for video communication in a flash applet. ↩
