Save Our Stray Dog’s (SOSD) WWwoof site is a virtual dog care that allows anyone to care for stray dogs virtually. Chip in to sponsor the maintenance of a dog, buy them treats or you can also simply watch them at SOSD’s kennels through the site’s online video streaming!
WWwoof streams live feeds from multiple WiFi connected IP cameras throughout the facility onto the web. To accomplish this we needed to overcome several challenges related to live streaming as well as the limited functionality of these types of cameras.
With the potential problem of overloading from high online traffic, we proxy the feed through our servers where we can control the performance. Additionally browser compatibility with streaming is lacking, in our case with webm Firefox has old unresolved issues causing blinking which was resolved by converted it into a series of images that gets rotated in instead.
This new revamp also features Paypal ecommerce integration with Django Content Management System (CMS). Administrators are able to manage the product listings and transactions directly via a single one platform.
