HTML5 chat goes now TURN for better compatibility

HTML5 now embeds a TURN server

We just added TURN server to out webrtc version.

The goal is to make the traversal of NAT easier for systems behind firewalls and routers (allow port 3478)

The other interesting feature is to make the chat more compatible on IOS and Safari: Safari rules for webrtc are:

“You cannot play webrtc if you don’t publish yourself”

which is very blocking for conferences sessions or just to watch videos without having to allow access to its own webcam.

Thanks to Turn server, we can now bypass that Safari and IOS rule.
