Videoconferencing server software?

Hi all,

I’m wondering if it is possible to setup a videoconferencing server, much like Google Hangout? I’ve heard lots of buzz around WebRTC, but little concrete seems to be coming from it in solutions I could setup on a droplet.

So, is something like this possible? I’m currently running Ubuntu 14.04 and Nginx.
