I guess adobe cirrus needs flash player plug-in for peer to peer communication, webrtc does not need plug-in for browser.
Webrtc use html5 video element for mediastream display.

Cirrus is based on RTMFP protocol, which may not be open sourced, but webrtc has open sourced code in code.google.com.
What's more, webrtc does not mandated the underlying communication protocol, just require it comply with the webrtc API definition and other requirement.

You are right, webrtc still need a webrtc service server and  STUN/TURN server to assist locate peer user and NAT traversal.

What's the differences between WebRTC and Adobe's Cirrus? How does the peer ID get assigned in WebRTC? Does WebRTC require some server to help user nodes bootstrap?
