No more HTTP for WebRTC on Chrome, only HTTPS

Posted by Igor Khomenko on September 15, 2015

“‘getUserMedia‘ in Chrome will require HTTPS soon” – this is what we have got from the Kranky Geek mini conference in San Francisco. That was announced during Google’s WebRTC update – Chrome will no longer support getUserMedia calls from a site that’s served up over http.

The Chrome team will roll this out in Chrome 47 before the end of 2015. That means any of your sites that leverage getUserMedia will be required to be served up via the https protocol to work across all browsers.














So if you want getUserMedia to work on your site, you’ll need to start serving up content via HTTPS.

Don’t forget to roll out this update before 2016.

Microsoft and WebRTC

Posted by Igor Khomenko on August 21, 2015

As you may know the Microsoft announced it is backing the Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC) technology and will be supporting the ORTC API in Internet Explorer and Edge.

Today we tested our WebRTC video calling code sample on Microsoft Edge browser and it’s still far from the working solution.

Here you can see the testing results:


Some good news:  Microsoft Edge now supports media capture functionality, so you can have an access to microphone and camera. Here is a blog post from Microsoft about it.

However, RTCPeerConnection is not supported and looks like Microsoft is going to follow its own way here – ORTC. And it’s not compatible with WebRTC 1.0.

So, where we are going? As we can see this is just the beginning of implementation effort in Microsoft/IE so we should sit and wait for first real results.

Keep you posted, cheers!
