Past WebRTCStandards Webinars, Here is the Full List





A questions that was asked by some of our webinar attendees – “Where can I find a list of past webinars you had”.

One place to find this list is on Crowdcast but we will now also publish this information on our website.

To start-off, in this post we included a list of all our past webinars so far, 17 in total.



Legacy API Support Changes

The past few months have seen several discussions regarding the so-called “Legacy APIs”, meaning anything not officially supported in the spec that might have been implemented in the past.  Some APIs have had support removed, others retained.  This session will briefly review the recent decisions in addition to the normal Q&A.


Google announced plans to finalize WebRTC 1.0 and close standards gaps in Chrome. Does that put a checkmark on interoperability?

Hosting Mozilla guest speaker Jan-Ivar Bruaroey

Google announced their plans to finalize WebRTC 1.0 and close standards compliance gaps in Chrome by end of year. Does this mean browser interoperability is given?
You could have guessed, the answer is NO.
On our next session we will have guest speaker Jan-Ivar Bruaroey from the Mozilla Firefox WebRTC team and adapter.js contributor.

We will talk about browser compatibility, adapter.js to which Jan-Ivar is a contributor and browser standards support.

This is a great opportunity to ask questions about Firefox and adapter.js.
We will talk about the interoperability gaps to mind.


W3C WebRTC Updates

In an effort to move the W3C WebRTC specification to Candidate Recommendation, the WebRTC Working Group has processed a large number of issues and applied many GitHub pull requests.

In this session Dan will review the some of the changes done by the W3C as well as the process and the importance of the Candidate Recommendation stage.


All About Microsoft & WebRTC  

Hosting  Guest Speaker James Cadd of Microsoft

On our next session we will have guest speaker James Cadd who leads the Open Source WebRTC for Windows effort at Microsoft.

James will talk about Microsoft’s support for WebRTC. Among other things his presentation will include:

  • Review of current state of Microsoft’s work on WebRTC
  • API compatibility and WebRTC code used for adding WebRTC to Microsoft’s products, source code availability & sample codes
  • Microsoft’s plans for Open Source WebRTC

This is a great opportunity to ask questions related specifically to Microsoft’s support for WebRTC on Windows.


All about WebRTC in Firefox and adapter.js

Hosting guest speaker Jan-Ivar Bruaroey

On our next session we will have guest speaker Jan-Ivar Bruaroey from the Mozilla Firefox WebRTC team.

We will talk about browser compatibility, adapter.js to which Jan-Ivar is a contributor and browser standards support.

This is a great opportunity to ask questions about Firefox and adapter.js.


Sending DTMF in WebRTC the standard way

There are different ways to send DTMF in VoIP. It can be sent in-band as audio tones our out of band as RTP information packets.
When WebRTC needs to interoperate with traditional VoIP or PSTN IVR type of applications there is a need to be able to generate DTMF events.

There have been some recent updates in the spec that relate to DTMF. We will review these in our next session.


RTC Media APIs gives better in-session control

While the peer connection API part of the specifications has been around for quite a while and is rather stable there are new capabilities added in the areas of stats and media control. Being able to change resolution, codec and media source on the fly during the session has been long requested and now being worked on in the standards.

In this session Alex will review these capabilities and Dan will take general WebRTC Standards questions.


W3C MediaStream Recording

There are different applications for getting the raw PCM audio on the client side. One can be client side recording, others can be for machine learning applications, call analysis, and automatic speech recognition.

In September, the W3C released the Media Stream Recording draft (

In this session we will review the capabilities the draft provides and status of implementation in the different browsers.


W3C WebRTC JS API Test Platform & Updates from W3C Lisbon Meeting

On September 19-23 there was the W3C TPAC meeting in Lisbon. Dan will cover some of the highlights of the recent Lisbon WebRTC meeting, including what items are the sticking points, where work is focusing, progress estimates, and thoughts on what might go into the next version of WebRTC after 1.0 is finished.

Alex will cover the W3C testing platform: “Test The Web Forward”. W3C, unlike IETF, is developing and maintaining a complete test suite for all its JS APIs. No specification is actually accepted by W3C and final without the corresponding test suite. Topics that will be addressed include what this testing platform implements, its status with respect to WebRTC and now it is used by different browser vendors as an indication of their compliance with the standards.


Debugging Networking Issues in WebRTC

Communication using WebRTC gives users one of the highest quality of experience one can ask for. The mechanisms in WebRTC and the codecs it uses overcomes bad network conditions and adapts to changes in network capacity.

While all this is true, once in a while users still run into issues. How to understand what’s going on and what are the network issues encountered in such a session is a challenge.

In this session Dan will review what the standard has to offer for collecting network conditions and Alex will discuss how these capabilities are used in WebRTC implementations.


Simulcast in WebRTC: Standards and Implementation

Simulcast is an important capability of WebRTC. In this session we will discuss what Simulcast is all about, where does it stand from standards work perspective and what are the browsers doing on the implementation side.


IP Privacy in WebRTC and Microsoft Edge Interoperability

IP address privacy in WebRTC is a hot topic occasionally brought up by the community as a concern. Dan will review this topic and bring some clarity to it.

Alex, who is co-founder of WebRTC in WebKit, will discuss the status of WebRTC browser interoperability with focus on Microsoft Edge.


WebRTC JavaScript Promises & WebRTC Interoperability

Dan will give a high level overview of JavaScript promises, why they matter, and the effect on the WebRTC APIs of the move to the Promise-based versions from the callback-based versions.

Alex, who is co-chair of the IMTC WebRTC Activity Group, will give his feedback on current WebRTC interoperability testing.


WebRTC in WebKit and the story around Apple and WebRTC

WebRTC in WebKit and support for WebRTC by Apple was a hot topic in the last few weeks.

Alex was working with Apple and leading the WebRTC in WebKit activity so he knows the story first hand.

In this session Alex will give new information about this topic and specifically information from his meeting with Apple last month.

Dan will be taking standard related Q&A and as usual we encourage you to submit your general WebRTC related questions beforehand in the Questions & Topics section below to make sure we answer them during the session.


WebRTC Screen Sharing and Screen Capture

This time we’ll be talking about screen sharing in WebRTC and screen capture. Those who use services that support screen sharing have noticed there is an additional action they need to take in order to allow WebRTC screen capture. This is due to security considerations. In our live session we will delve into this topic.

General WebRTC Standards & Implementation Q&A

A new partner joining the WebRTCStandards team, Alex Gouaillard.

The session will be a general WebRTC Q&A answering questions about WebRTCStandards and actual implementation.

We will start with a discussion about video codecs and an update about VP9.


WebRTC media control, sender and receiver objects and transceivers

The sessions will be informal and mainly be dedicated to Q&A but we will also review a specific topic we believe is of interest. Those that follow our updates have seen a lot of activity around WebRTC media control, sender and receiver objects and transceivers.
