WebRTC Audio/Video Codecs

Codecs signifies the media stream’s compession and decompression. For peers to have suceesfull excchange of media, they need a common set of codecs to agree upon for the session . The list codecs are sent  between each other as part of offeer and answer or SDP in SIP. As WebRTC provides containerless bare mediastreamgtrackobjects. Codecs … Continue reading WebRTC Audio/Video Codecs
