  2. Thanks for write-up. Did zoom write their h264 codec? In order to use emscripten they would probably need the source for a codec, right? I know the broadway decoder has been out for a few years, but I think that only works with baseline streams.

  3. I think the reason they use RTCDataChannel because they want to decode the media on their own. Hence, they can use their (propetiary) compiled decoder using wasm.
