Orchid Core VMS version 2.2.0 marked the start of support for Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC). This technology allows for viewing full-bandwidth, live and recorded H264 video streams within a web browser (without the need to download a plugin). The benefits of WebRTC mode are only available if you are using Google Chrome, version 66 or higher, in a MacOS, Windows, or Linux desktop environment. This browser also gives you the option to run Orchid Core VMS in Low-bandwidth mode.
All other web browsers support Low-bandwidth mode only. These include the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Safari. (For a detailed comparison of the two operating modes, please refer to the Comparing Orchid Core VMS Operating Modes section.)
