Support for TURN over TCP This feature enables audio-video communication for clients in network environments where UDP traffic is restricted. A TURN server relays audio-video streams to punch through firewalls (when necessary). With TURN over TCP, audio-video streams can be sent and received in environments where UDP traffic is restricted. Note that a video stream can be higher quality when sent over UDP than when sent over TCP, so TCP is used only when UDP is not available. Currently, TURN over TCP is not available for clients using Firefox. (We anticipate that it will be available in Firefox 28.)
OpenTok Media Router OpenTok Media Router acts as a central switching station for non-peer-to-peer WebRTC streams. OpenTok Media Router enables:
To use OpenTok Media Router, set the peer-to-peer preference to false when creating a session.
In Chrome, hiding an element that contains a Publisher or Subscriber (by setting the
display CSS property to "none" causes the browser to crash. As a work-around, you can set the
visibility property to "hidden", and set the
width properties to "1px".
WebRTC is a peer-to-peer protocol, and it is possible that connections will fail to connect. The most common cause
for failure is a firewall that the protocol cannot traverse. When OpenTok detects this failure, the TB object dispatches
exception event object, with the
code property set to 1013.
You cannot publish using WebRTC on a page loaded from a file:// URL. You need to load the page from an http:// URL. For example, you can test a file from http://localhost if you have a web server set up on your local machine.
TURN over TCP support was not working. We have fixed this issue.
Subscribers calling the
Subscriber.restrictFrameRate() method displayed
lower than expected video quality in networks where there was packet loss. We have
fixed this issue.
