Pref on Web
RTC by default
There will be a bunch of bugs blocking this (try to keep it to the highest bug in a chain of dependencies; if we're blocked by B, and A blocks B, don't generally bother having A block this as well. This is not a hard-and-fast rule. Doing this will require privacy and security reviews to be passed.
Is there currently a bug to make a pref?
media.peerconnection.enabled (defaults to true on alder)
Removing Bug 827985 because we don't believe there is a significant advantage to moving webrtc out of libxul beyond the patch for bug 833118, which has already landed.
No longer depends on: 827985
Comment on attachment 708963 [details] [diff] [review] enable PeerConnection by default Looking for trivial r+ in order to be ready to "flip the bit" once we've resolved the blockers.

Sounds like we should land this now, right? Quick question - are you prefing this on by default in FF 21 or FF 22? That might affect when we land this and if an uplift is needed.
I think we should land this now (today). I'd love to pref this on for at least the Aurora cycle of 21 to get some extra testing from the Aurora population. It's unclear if we'll be able to fix and uplift enough bugs (I realize we have around 50 blocker-webrtc+ bugs currently open) to keep the feature on when Fx21 goes to Beta. (We probably won't be able to.) But the extra test time and developer exposure in Aurora 21 would be very valuable to the feature IMO. If at any point, it becomes problematic to keep the feature pref'd on in Aurora 21, we can disable it. but it would be great if we could keep it on through the end of the Aurora 21 cycle. Randell and I are talking to Alex and Bhavana (release-drivers) about what makes the most sense. Thoughts about this are welcome here.

I noticed that it's not pref'd on by default anymore in Aurora (21.0a2) or in Firefox Beta (21.0). Is this intentional? Can we hope for it to be pref'd on by default when 21 goes to production?

We're riding the trains to Fx22 for turning this feature on now.
(In reply to Jason Smith [:jsmith] from comment #11) > Yes, it's intentional. We preffed off for Fx21 because the feature isn't > ready for production. Right, we had it preffed on in Aurora to enable wider testing, but the plan was to pref off before 21 went to Beta. See bug 853106.
Yes, our plan is to keep the feature pref'd on in Firefox 22 into production.
Sorry, just realised I can try/catch around new mozRTCPeerConnection. Should have tried that before posting.
