Currently WebRTC Networking inside the new socket process is controlled via two prefs:

  • media.peerconnection.mtransport_process
  • network.process.enabled
    which both are not set yet (so false).

We need to establish a plan on how and when we are going to flip these prefs to true.

The simplest option is to just flip the prefs in Nightly and let them ride the trains.
Another option is to flip them only in Nightly, but hold them back in Nightly until we have ironed out the fall out bugs from that.
And for Release the question is if we want to do a flip pref shield study instead of just launching it in a given version in the future.
