The VidyoClient.js javascript library seamlessly switches between the plugin and WebRTC; the plugin is preferred. While the plugin offers generally better performance, the following table explains possible options:

Mode/Browser Chrome Chrome on Android * Firefox Safari Safari on iOS * IE Edge
Plugin no no no no no yes no
WebRTC yes beta yes beta no no beta

* For best performance and video quality on mobile devices, we recommend using the native mobile SDKs for iOS and Android.

    Apple has removed all NPAPI support for Safari 12. Does it impact the plugin if trying to use the VidyoClient.js on Safari 12?

    Is the safari still a beta version for webRTc?  can we accomplish a video call on safari by sending a link to the user, without the need for plugin download? This is crucial for our workflow and wanted to know if anybody has accomplished this.
