H.264/AVC support for RTC added to Microsoft Edge in latest Windows 10 preview

The latest Windows 10 PC preview build 14352 has added H.264/AVC support to the real-time communications (RTC) stack in the Microsoft Edge web browser.

Microsoft previously announced it would add support for H.264/AVC for Edge's RTC features. In a blog post today, it stated:

These features lay the foundation for video interoperability within the Edge RTP stack, and we plan to extend this in future release by supporting additional feedback messages (e.g. Generic NACK) as well as congestion control and robustness mechanisms (e.g. RTX).

The blog added that Edge's RTC features will be expanded in the coming months, including support for the WebRTC 1.0 API.
