WebRTC M50 branch (cut at r11765)
Chrome M50, currently available in Chrome's beta channel, contains over 60 bug fixes, enhancements and stability improvements. As with previous releases, we encourage all developers to run versions of Chrome on the Canary, Dev, and Beta channels frequently and quickly report any issues found. Please take a look at this page, for some pointers on how to file a good bug report. The help we have received has been invaluable!
The Chrome release schedule can be found here.
For the PeerConnection createOffer and createAnswer methods, we’ve made the error handler argument mandatory. This is part of clearing the way for introducing promise-based versions of these functions.
Along with the fix for issue 4024 to support RTX for multiple codecs, we had to add a few temporary workarounds to simultaneously support talking to old, incorrect Chrome versions (<M50) while still being able to have the correct behavior when talking to newer versions. Old Chrome versions had bugs where it assumed that the underlying codec was RED when it had negotiated RED and RTX associated with VP8. It also could not handle negotiating two or more RTX codecs associated with different codecs. See the CL description for details of the behavior in M50.
With M50 we have significantly improved the bandwidth estimation and congestion control of WebRTC (issue 4711). WebRTC endpoints will now better share the bottleneck link capacity between each other which is important especially for the mesh conference scenario. In addition, WebRTC will now better compete for bandwidth with TCP flows, meaning that someone watching YouTube at the same time as you are having a meeting won't deteriorate your video quality the same way it may have before.
Chrome is now able to encode and decode WebRTC video chats using the popular H.264 format. So far, this is an experimental feature behind a flag; instructions on how to enable it are in this PSA.
