[Outcast] 07:03 taxilian_away: I think I might be able to set the proxy on mac using the SCNetworkConfiguration framework in the C++ code.
[Outcast] 07:03 Also on another subject. Is there any that can be done to move away from NPAPI since it looks like most browsers are going move away from it?
taxilian 08:03 [Outcast] there may be some system APIs that can change proxy settings, true, but it may not work on all browsers, particularly firefox
[Outcast] 08:03 OK I will keep that in mind.
taxilian 08:03 also there is a thread on the firebreath-dev list where we discuss possible options, but there aren't any "silver bullet" options that just give you everything you have with npapi
[Outcast] 08:03 understood.
I would just hate for this thing just to die. I will look back through the archive to catch up on the discussion.
taxilian 08:03 one of us needs to do some serious looking into WebRTC — I think it may offer a good alternative to some of the other options
[Outcast] 08:03 I have been doing a lot with webRTC just in the last few weeks. It is cool, but does not give me what I trying todo. For the POC this week I am using FB as a local proxy server and to do some auto proxy config. We are trying to implement our network optimization protocol directly in the browser. FB is giving us an easy vehicle to do so.
taxilian 08:03 maybe you can answer some questions for me, then
with WebRTC, can I connect to something running on localhost and exchange information besides just video?
dcherman 08:03 wouldn't websockets be a better candidate for that than webrtc?

[Outcast] 09:03 taxilian: You can use a webRTC data channel send pretty much anything you want.
taxilian 09:03 that could be helpful. And I can easily send video data to be displayed in the browser, correct?
[Outcast] 09:03 I have been using peerjs for the NAT/Firewall negotiation and data transfer control
last week I even wrote a peer2peer file transfer app using webRTC and peerjs at the launch hackathon.
still has a few bugs but it is working.
taxilian 09:03 any sample code you can point me at?
[Outcast] 09:03 taxilian: the best place to start would be http://peerjs.com/
taxilian: should give you everything you need to you going.
Just a FYI if transmitting a blob it comes out as a byte array on the end and will need to be converted back to a blob object.
taxilian 09:03 cool, thx
[Outcast] 11:03 taxilian: looks like firefox is going to be support NPAPI for now right?

is there anyway to build a plugin that is both PPAPI and NPAPI?
