Add end-to-end encrypted videocalls to Movim XMPP

Movim is a web-based social and chat platform that acts as a frontend for the XMPP network. The goal of this project is to modernize and extend the long-existing audio and video conferencing features in three major steps. First, the existing UI will be completely refactored and redesigned to better integrate the conferencing features into the existing pages and flows. Secondly, Movim will support one-to-many call features and offer full compatibility with other XMPP clients building upon the step-one features but without relying on a central server to handle the media streams. And finally, to handle conference calls with a large number of participants, Movim will standardize and integrate SFU (Selective Forwarding Unit) support that will then lift the streams network bottlenecks offering a complete and scalable experience to its users. With those three steps fulfilled Movim will then be able to greatly simplify fully standard XMPP audio and video conferencing calls on the web.
