Abstract

As indicated in [OVERVIEW], it has been anticipated that WebRTC will not remain an isolated island and that some WebRTC endpoints will need to communicate with devices used in other existing networks with the help of a gateway. Therefore, in order to maximize the possibility of establishing the session without the need for audio transcoding, it is recommended in [RFC7874] to include in the offer other suitable audio codecs beyond those that are mandatory to implement. This document provides some guidelines on the suitable codecs to be considered for WebRTC endpoints to address the use cases most relevant to interoperability.

           Additional WebRTC Audio Codecs for Interoperability

Abstract

   To ensure a baseline of interoperability between WebRTC endpoints, a    minimum set of required codecs is specified.  However, to maximize    the possibility of establishing the session without the need for    audio transcoding, it is also recommended to include in the offer    other suitable audio codecs that are available to the browser.

   This document provides some guidelines on the suitable codecs to be    considered for WebRTC endpoints to address the use cases most    relevant to interoperability.
