Abstract [en]

Nowadays there are plenty of different options for connecting users all around the world: video-conferencing, audio-conferencing, chat applications... Nevertheless, most of these need specific software, plug-ins or separate applications installed in the personal devices.This could be avoided by using web-based technologies, so the user would not have to agree any term or condition in order to communicate with the other end. In this area, the main aim of this thesis is to investigate, study and analyse the different approaches and options available nowadays to share the screen or part of it, natively in the browser, without the need of plug-ins or added software.It is also implemented an application with this characteristics, so two users will be able to share their screen, or part of it, directly from the browser. The application implemented takes the images from the screen (encoded in jpeg format) using GStreamer. It uses the WebSocket protocol to communicate both ends, using a server which will push the data from one user to another, both connected with a password to allow the identification.In this thesis it is also compared this implemented application, with another approach which uses different technology but the same idea of not using any added software. For further work or in case it is intended to create a commercial product, at the end of the report it is proposed some ideas to improve it.
