Single RTCPeerConnection To Reduce Client CPU

Hi guys,

Are there any ideas about using a single RTCPeerConnection instead of using one RTCPeerConnection per user/client? It might be the solution for reducing CPU usage on client side as well as allowing for massive users in a conference room (300++). Has this been on the table before?

Seems like it was discussed here https://bloggeek.me/webrtc-rtcpeerconnection-one-per-stream/ but it was in 2017 and may not be relevant to current Jitsi Meet.

well it’s easy to check no ? open 3 connections to meet.jit.si and look at chrome://webrtc-internals. Still a single entry. Nothing has changed from this point of view since 2017.

Hmm okay thank you. Seems like I have misunderstood the concept. Thanks again!
