ownCloud 9.0 to Feature Private and Secure Video Calls, Thanks to Spreedbox
Founder, maintainer, and CTO of ownCloud, Frank Karlitschek, was happy to inform the world that the upcoming ownCloud 9.0 self-hosting cloud server will implement a free and secure WebRTC teleconferencing system based on Spreed..
As usual, we were very curious to find out what's the fuss all about, and to our surprise, we found out that Spreed will, in fact, bring private and secure video calls to ownCloud 9.0, which should hit the streets in a few weeks from today, based on Spreedbox.
What's Spreedbox? Well, as you can see from one of the tweets attached at the end of the article, Spreedbox is an aluminum cube with 4.5-inch (11.1 cm) sides, slightly tilted on a plastic base and weighing around 2.5 pounds (1.1 kg), which contains an oDroid C1+ SBC and a custom PCB with an RNG and microSD-based storage.
"On the storage you will find the software which makes the Spreedbox a useful tool for both individuals and small companies-ownCloud with Spreed, an integrated web conferencing tool," ownCloud developers have explained. "I'm sure many ownCloud users will be experimenting with this soon."
