Include noVNC rather than Java applet viewer

Post by VA1DER »

Without going to heroics, there has been no way for the average user to use the built-in Java viewer for a number of years. By 2017 no real browser supported the NPAPI java plugin, and by 2020 the plugin was removed from Java.

Instead of including a web-viewer in the format of a Java applet that hardly anyone can use, perhaps some consideration can be given to including noVNC? It's available now, it works, it uses HMTL5 & javascript, is compatible with every major browser, and it should be basically a drop-in replacement for the current java applet inside UVNC. It should be pretty simple to deploy with UVNC.

It also has the benefit of being a separately maintained project with its own community, which offloads responsibility for maintenance from the UVNC project.

Can provide some patch, or extra info as it seems you already experimented with it.
Maintenance is taking almost all my time, can make some time free, but not enough to study and implement it.
