|WebRTC functionality in Internet Explorer, via Chrome Frame||Serge Lachapelle||6/18/12 10:55 AM|
Thought I'd share the fact that Chrome Frame enables WebRTC to be used from within Internet Explorer(IE).
Here is how:
When web developers add <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="chrome=1">
at the top of their web page, IE will use Chrome Frame to render it. More information on Chrome Frame here.
To test this today, it requires you to use Chrome’s Dev Channel. In the future, the WebRTC APIs will be available in both Chrome and Chrome Frame’s stable channels, without requiring any flags or other special user interventions.
To test WebRTC from within Internet Explorer today, please follow these instructions:
1. Download Chrome’s Dev Channel browser. (This does not work with Canary).
2. Quit all of your browsers.
3. Install Chrome’s Dev Channel.
4. Start Internet Explorer and point it here http://www.google.com/chromeframe?quickenable=true to install and enable Chrome Frame.
5. To enable PeerConnection, set a flag by using regedit (usual disclaimers apply) and create the following entry in your registry:
6. Re-start IE. As an example, point IE to http://apprtc.appspot.com
Special Note: The getUserMedia flag is no longer required in the Dev Channel, thus no registry changes are required for Chrome Frame. Only PeerConnection still requires a flag / registry change.
Let us know how your testing of this feature works out for your webrtc app!

I've been using this for a while though I didn't realise you could use registry to add the extra parameters, would never work for me.
Once you've installed chrome frame you can start the chrome browser with a user dir parameter and set the flags using chrome flags page also.
Thanks for extra info!

I tried installing on windows vista and 7for IE9, in that both i could not find the reg keys as you mentioned below.

Perhaps worth noting here in case you were note aware that support for Chrome Frame is ending:

As webRTC is gaining popularity, the chromium frame will still be the best option for IE.
All we need is a central website for installing chromium frame easily.

Yes, until it is not available anymore.
|Re: [discuss-webrtc] Re: WebRTC functionality in Internet Explorer, via Chrome Frame||Michel Memeteau||9/1/13 2:21 AM|
You're misunderstanding. the chromium project is opensource and include 99% of the chromeframe code. SO you will always be able to build a fully functionnal chromium frame.
What we miss right now is a central website for hosting stable builds.

Right, but once Chrome Frame is discontinued, the responsibility of keeping the Chrome Frame source up to date with the Chromium code base would be yours - which is not an easy task, considering the high number of changes that are made in Chrome every day. As time goes by, it would become increasingly harder, as complexities, workarounds, hacks and bridges that made Chrome Frame possible would be eliminated.

Phil , you are absolutly right. What I meant is that it's up to the community to carry on the "frame" project that enabled almost 100% HTML5 browsers and thus enable people to work on anything than supporting old browsers.
the more I think about it , the more I think that the "frame" project should now live without google.
I've tested the chromium Frame included in the Mini chromium installer on XP/IE8 and it works great.

(I am not Phil)
Frankly, I find it hard to believe that the community will undertake such a project.
|Re: WebRTC functionality in Internet Explorer, via Chrome Frame||Stephen Korow||11/22/13 9:21 AM|
Do you know what version of Chrome Frame started the support of WebRTC?
|Re: [discuss-webrtc] Re: WebRTC functionality in Internet Explorer, via Chrome Frame||PhistucK||11/23/13 12:19 AM|
I guess the same Chrome version.
Chrome 21 (released as beta in July, 2012) has getUserMedia.
Chrome 23 (released as beta in October, 2012) has getUserMedia and PeerConnection.
|Re: WebRTC functionality in Internet Explorer, via Chrome Frame||Brendan Daunt||2/4/14 10:34 AM|
I followed the steps provided and get the error attached ("getUserMedia() failed"). Pretty plain vanilla 32-bit system with both Chrome and IE11 installed. Is there anything else I should try?

Refer to http://blog.chromium.org/2013/06/retiring-chrome-frame.html

Are you sure your chrome Frame is enabled on IE11 ?
Because your Popup seems to come from IE.
By default IE11 has some kind of protective mode that prevent chromeFrame and other plugins to work.
Just go here to check
and see by right clicking if the engine used is really chromeFrame
