- What is IceComm.io, why do I need it?
IceComm is the cross-browser library that supports the in-browser video chatroom. WPRTC required IceComm as of v2 due to problems with TURN servers not being configured properly creating a cross between users. If you have your own TURN servers you can modify the IceComm global settings to include your TURN server. IceComm is 100% free up to 50 concurrent unique visitors, or 50 active video chatroom participants at the same time.
