Hi all,

A couple more:

  * End to end media encryption for conferences
  * (from the webrtc survey) Per frame (meta) information to allow
    correlating data with a single frame. This allows data loaded on a
    side channel to match on a single frame. [uses cases are subtitles,
    video overlays, iot metadata...]

Best regards
