Support for Bowser Browser (by Ericsson Labs)

Hi,

First of all, excellent job on this! It’s really nice to see such a project
out in the open, fully open-source. Hat’s off to the Lynckia/Licode team!

Now on to the nitty-gritty.

I’m trying to do WebRTC broadcasting on iOS, and, as you guys already
know, Bowser Browser from Ericsson Labs is the only browser (at this
time) that enables this.
I do know that you don’t support Bowser at this moment, but I have seen
Bowser mentions on the client-side library erizo.js.

I tried to separate a viewer from a broadcaster, and from what I could find
through debugging for a viewer, Bowser does receive “room-connected” and
"stream-removed" events, but then it just hangs instead of displaying the
cam. This might have something to do with either the way Bowser interprets
the “streamEvent.stream” or with multimedia (Bowser does H.264, while
Chrome, the broadcaster in my case, does VP8
).

Does anybody happen to have any sort of temporary hack in order to support
Bowser or is the problem much more complicated than this?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Adrian,

we started working on make Licode compatible with Bowser but as you know
WebRTC is now compatible with Android Chrome browser and we hope it will be
with iOS version soon. For this reason we focused our efforts in other
lines of work.

However, if you want an immediate solution really this is the only way. I
don’t know exactly how Bowser implementation has advanced but when we were
working with it, the problem was to make the ICE connectivity between
Bowser and Erizo. You can start with our branch “bowser” in GitHub. However
as I said you this is a frozen branch by the moment and I can’t ensure you
support by the community.

Best regards,
