Having simulcast enabled, publishing video from Chrome to Firefox degrades the bitrate until it stops completely on the FF side. This might be some thing related to this issue: https://github.com/lynckia/licode/issues/565
As a result Firefox would be useless formally. Why just not block REMBs from Firefox?
I haven’t tested simulcast yet, i’m sorry
@mkh @Francesco_Durighetto can you test it again with Firefox 54 please? AFAIK they added abs-send-time in that version and it should help the congestion control algorithm to have higher values.
My production environment is pre-simulcast so I can’t really help right now.
I need few weeks to merge.
btw, @Javier these might interest you:
do you have any response for the last question I asked in the bugzilla forum?
Sadly no change, tested on Firefox 54.0b7 (64-bit). I got completely disappointed from Firefox.
@Javier Would you please let me know if is it possible to ignore Firefox REMBs in the server side by some lines of code? Otherwise I have to drop the support for Firefox in my services if I enable the simulcast which is a great feature and can not be ignored.
