    Phoronix: Better WebRTC Support Is Coming To Chrome/Chromium For Benefiting Wayland Screen Sharing

    In recent years Red Hat engineers have been contributing to WebRTC in Chromium and related projects as part of Wayland screen sharing support that also works with the likes of PipeWire and XDG-Desktop-Portal. Looking forward to 2021, more WebRTC improvements in Chromium/Chrome are on the way...

    On a unrelated news, currently on Chrome-beta 88 video hardware acceleration is working just fine. Just flip those switches on About:Flags and you are good to go, easier than in Firefox.

        Ok, but why Red hat contributes to Google's spyware browser instead of Firefox ?
        And before anyone asks, what spyware, please have a look at Chromium forks that try to remove it since it's quite a lot.

          You got me. I'm looking for a fork that will disable auto-play natively, rather than requiring 3rd-party spyware to stop unwanted video.

            Because is the biggest browser market share ... it should be obvious at this point ... but that does not discard Firefox could come next

              Because Chromium is the upstream for libwebrtc, which is then reused in Firefox.

              Very simple and pragmatic reason.

                Exactly: Red Hat has not interest in Chromium since they ship Firefox by default.

                  We have people working on Firefox as well (in the same team). So it’s as well as, not instead of.

                    Not working for me. Do I need something else instead of Intel hardware (or more recent than two year old Intel hardware)?
