Please add SCTP support
-----------------------

                 Key: JITSI-1168
                 URL: https://java.net/jira/browse/JITSI-1168
             Project: jitsi
          Issue Type: New Feature
         Environment: Linux
            Reporter: james.haigh


Jitsi relies on UDP for audio and video communication. UDP has no congestion 
control, so it can cause congestion problems for a network's downlink. Like 
TCP, SCTP has congestion control, but was designed for real-time 
communication. I'm planning to block UDP on the downlink of my network, so I 
want Jitsi to work without needing UDP.

Besides, surely there are many other benefits to using a transport protocol 
that was _designed_ for RTC!

Jitsi should be able to use native SCTP on _at least_ Linux (which I know has 
long since supported SCTP). For platforms that don't support SCTP, Jitsi 
should be able to use [SCTP over 
UDP|https://ietf.org/proceedings/48/I-D/sigtran-sctptunnel-00.txt] as a ;
fallback.
