Android Question WebRtc and WebView

Hello all,

this thread was suggested by @Erel , after fixed a https problem in a webview in this https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/problem-with-https-and-webview.98535/#post-620911 ...

Ok, let's go: I'm trying to open a site similar to this: https://rtcmulticonnection.herokuapp.com/demos/Video-Conferencing.html ... in a webview.

But when clicking the "open room" button in the webview there is no result, besides this woks fine in smartphone browser. I thought that WebView behavior was something similar to a embedded browser in an app, but it looks that there are some limitations.
If I could run this site would get at least a great advantage of reusing the same code for web and app... could anybody help me?

Thanks!

Test it with other WebRTC servers. Hopefully they will provide more information.

Make sure to monitor the unfiltered logs.
Thanks @Erel . I noticed that the problem was in javascript: something that runs on mobile browser doesn't in webview, I didn't find exactly what but I wrote a new JS and worked! A good tool in this situations could be a way to debug js in webview: is there some?

The attached example successfully starts a WebRTC session with: https://janus.conf.meetecho.com/echotest.html
Hi Erel,
i try your example on B4XPages but i have problem with the permission, the code is the same...what's the problem?
B4X:
#Region Shared Files
#CustomBuildAction: folders ready, %WINDIR%\System32\Robocopy.exe,"..\..\Shared Files" "..\Files"
'Ctrl + click to sync files: ide://run?file=%WINDIR%\System32\Robocopy.exe&args=..\..\Shared+Files&args=..\Files&FilesSync=True
#End Region

'Ctrl + click to export as zip: ide://run?File=%B4X%\Zipper.jar&Args=Project.zip

Sub Class_Globals
    Private Root As B4XView
    Private xui As XUI
    
    Private rp As RuntimePermissions

    Private WebView1 As WebView
End Sub

Public Sub Initialize
End Sub

'This event will be called once, before the page becomes visible.
Private Sub B4XPage_Created (Root1 As B4XView)
    Root = Root1
    Root.LoadLayout("MainPage")
    
    rp.CheckAndRequest(rp.PERMISSION_CAMERA)
    Wait For Activity_PermissionResult (Permission As String, Result As Boolean)
    If Result Then
        rp.CheckAndRequest(rp.PERMISSION_RECORD_AUDIO)
        Wait For Activity_PermissionResult (Permission As String, Result As Boolean)
        If Result Then
            Dim client As JavaObject
            client.InitializeNewInstance(Application.PackageName & ".main$MyChromeClient", Null)
            Dim jo As JavaObject = WebView1
            jo.RunMethod("setWebChromeClient", Array(client))
            
            WebView1.LoadUrl("https://janus.conf.meetecho.com/echotest.html")

        End If
    End If
End Sub

'You can see the list of page related events in the B4XPagesManager object. The event name is B4XPage.

Sub Button1_Click
    WebView1.LoadUrl("https://janus.conf.meetecho.com/echotest.html")
End Sub

#if Java
import android.webkit.*;
public static class MyChromeClient extends WebChromeClient {
@Override
     public void onPermissionRequest(PermissionRequest request) {
        request.grant(request.getResources());
    }
}
#End If
