Will we see some progress on MTI Video Codecs for RTCWEB at this next IETF meeting? We can always hope. The chances of this actually happening are not in our favor, many have tried before and failed. Does it matter? It might be good if we as developers, knew which codecs we could rely on in WebRTC endpoints. There is also plenty of work around SDP, dataChannel and trickle ICE underway that needs discussion as well. We plan on participating remotely.

The next post from Robin Raymond will be a doozy! At Hookflash, we are no fans of SDP. From where we are sitting, SDP really has little place being in WebRTC at all. Robin’s post later in the week will explain our reasoning. Subscribe to the feed to be notified when that and other posts are published.
