[Ubuntu] The shared image freezes on the second PC during tab/window sharing


(Core :: WebRTC: Audio/Video, defect, P3)




Blocking Flags:


(Reporter: vasilica.mihasca, Assigned: jesup)


Reproducible on: Firefox 42.0a1 and Firefox 40.0b1 under Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit

1.Launch Firefox and click on Hello icon.
2.Click on "Start a conversation" and access "Share your screen" button.
3.Select "Share your tabs" (or “Share other Windows”).
4.Send the link to another person.
5.Switch through Firefox tabs from the first PC (or “resize the shared window” ) for a few minutes.

The sharing tab/window call flows without any issues.

The shared image remains stuck on the second PC after some minutes of sharing.

Additional notes:
- This issue is reproducible on Firefox 42.0a1 (2015-07-03) and Firefox 40 Beta 1 (20150702173756) under Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit
- This issue does not reproduce on Windows and Mac
- No specific errors are thrown in Browser Console
- This issue is fixed when the sharing process is stopped and reloaded.
This is a platform issue, not a Client issue - so moving over and triaging.

Randell -- Can you look at this?  NOTE: It appears to be a Linux-only issue.

Randell, can you try to reproduce this on Fedora?  Thanks

I saw something which *may* be this (Hello has changed some). I'll need to do more investigation.

My guess is an issue in the TabVideo source, and swapping one out for another, perhaps in the JS code.

Mass change P2->P3 to align with new Mozilla triage process.
