Asterisk as MCU


I’m completely new in Astrisk, I’m implementing video conferencing for an application that runs on web browsers (supporting webRTC) which also has mobile apps for android and iphone. For these purpose I was using Kurento as MCU, but now they want to join a SIP call to a running conference.

My question is that can I use Asterisk as an MCU for creating a video conference with mentioned features and recording? is there any written API in any language that has implemented this feature?

I would be grateful if any body give me a hint.

No, asterisk doesn’t transcode video and webrtc video is “kinda buggy” in asterisk. So maybe you can put a Media Gateway in front of your sip device and then if Kurento allow the connection go and add in the conference the new SIP device.
