Looking for WebRTC HOW-TO

Post by tgwilt »


I have some bacterial or viral infection that, in addition to making my voice sound like a foghorn, is really messing with my ability to think.

I am trying to figure out how to get WebRTC working on Linux Mint 19.1. with Google Chrome Version 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit).

I have searched for instructions, but can't seem to find what I need. I need a quick and dirty HOW-TO designed for an idiot.

Anybody know of anything like this?

Thanks in advance

check out this web site
part way down the page
Your IP addresses - WebRTC detection
If you are now connected to a VPN and you see your ISP IP, then your system is leaking WebRTC requests

near the bottom of the page
What is a "WebRTC leaks"?
WebRTC implement STUN (Session Traversal Utilities for Nat), a protocol that allows to discover the public IP address. To disable it:

Mozilla Firefox: Type "about:config” in the address bar. Scroll down to “media.peerconnection.enabled”, double click to set it to false.
Google Chrome: Install Google official extension WebRTC Network Limiter.
Opera: Type "about:config" in the address bar or go to "Settings". Select "Show advanced settings" and click on "Privacy & security". At "WebRTC" mark select "Disable non-proxied UDP".

hope that helps
