    Video conferencing is still a lively research field, and for both personal and business applications it is reasonable to expect that the interest in conferencing services will grow in the future. However, available tools lack of scalability and flexibility features and the more widespread ones have proven to be a possible threat for our privacy. This technical report focuses on the design and development of PartyHub, an open source peer-to-peer conferencing platform, entirely customizable, distributed and privacy aware. This goal can be achieved porting a peer-to-peer live streaming platform, PeerStreamer [1] to the video conferencing context. In this report we document the test performed in order to verify the suitability of this idea and the future steps and challenges needed to develop PartyHub.
