A question:

sender.getParameters() returns the RTCRtpParameters that were last set in sender.setParameters(), correct?

So setParameters() operates as a transaction that either succeeds or fails.

Here's the PR:

https://github.com/w3c/webrtc-pc/pull/234


It adds RtpParameters, RtpEncodingParameters, RtpEncodingParameters.prioity, RtpSender.getParameters, and RtpSender.setParameters.  I hope that's not too much all at once.

That would be very welcome!

I tend to forget where things are supposed to sit if they're not in the
spec.
