#16221: Enable WebRTC with TCP-ICE (and hidden services?)
 Reporter:  mikeperry    |          Owner:  tbb-team
     Type:  enhancement  |         Status:  new
 Priority:  normal       |      Milestone:
Component:  Tor Browser  |        Version:
 Keywords:  ff38-esr     |  Actual Points:
Parent ID:               |         Points:
 Mozilla added support for WebRTC over TCP, and WebRTC proxy support in
 Firefox 34 and 38:

 This might mean we can actually enable WebRTC now, if we turn off all of
 the IP address discovery and non-TCP ICE mechanisms:

 We could also potentially list a hidden service address as a WebRTC ICE
 endpoint, though we would need to be careful about this since it means
 that potentially every Tor Browser user who visits a WebRTC-enabled page
 would suddenly spin up a hidden service. I wonder if we can have Tor
 create the keys for a hidden service without actually starting it up
 unless it is actually negotiated by WebRTC.
