Subject [jira] [Commented] (GUACAMOLE-375) Audio Redirection does not work in Internet Explorer
Date Tue, 05 Sep 2017 16:22:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GUACAMOLE-375?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16153912#comment-16153912

Michael Jumper commented on GUACAMOLE-375:
------------------------------------------

Guacamole's audio support relies on the [Web Audio API|https://www.w3.org/TR/webaudio/], which
is not supported by Internet Explorer, but is supported by all other browsers: http://caniuse.com/#feat=audio-api

Adding audio support for IE without the Web Audio API would require leveraging <audio>
tags (the technique that Guacamole used to use) and non-free codecs (IE only supports playback
of MP3 and AAC), and works very poorly in practice. Since the buffering of <audio> tags
cannot be controlled by JavaScript, audio streams would need to be split into small (but individually
playable) audio packets, with noticeable gaps / clicking between each packet due to the lack
of sufficient resolution in JavaScript timers.

Given the above, I'm not sure implementing all this would be worth the effort, but that's
definitely open for debate.
