Social networks are no longer a phenomenon; nowadays it is not that they are a reality but have become something indispensable. During its growth and consolidations period internet has suffered a great transformation due to the new kind of most demanded content. Sharing images, videos or even making calls with another user are tasks that an average user would make several times a day. This transition could only happen thanks to new technologies that not only simplify those tasks but, due to handheld devices' irruption, would work successfully under reasonable data and battery consumption rates. Videoconferences over the network and multimedia data streams in general have always gone hand in hand of closed software products like Macromedia Flash, for instance, that required of a plugin installation on the browser by the end user. Under those premises, this project will focus on the investigation of WebRTC as a technology capable of successfully achieving videoconferences between users without the need of any browser plugin. In order to verify the knowledge gathered through the study of the technology, the design, architecture and implementation of an application capable of doing so will be proposed.
