DSCP support cannot be enabled on iOS

Reported by, Aug 27 2015

Issue description

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a PeerConnection with the "googDscp" constraint.
2. Observe the debug output and use wireshark to look at the packets

What is the expected result?
DSCP flags should be set, e.g. to DSCP_EF

What do you see instead?
DSCP flags are not set.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
latest git, on iOS (probably windows, too)

Please provide any additional information below.

The method "TranslateOptions" in webrtc/base/ and webrtc/base/ will return -1 for OPT_DSCP, this will prevent DSCP flags to be set.

This is easy to fix (at least for iOS), in

@pthatcher, do you know why we don't support DSCP in socketserver? As I remember we once added DSCP support in Chrome.

I believe it's because of

On older versions of Windows, DSCP was broken.

Should we mark this one a dupe?

This issue is about iOS. I only mentioned windows because it caught my eye while i scanned through the sources.

Ah, sorry, I misunderstood.

I don't see a good reason.  If iOS supports DSCP well, I think we should enable it.

Guowei?  Zeke?  Would either of you like to look into this?

Experiencing this same behavior in Windows as well. Same steps to reproduce

Windows 10 Chrome Version 45.0.2454.99 m
Windows 10 Chrome Version 47.0.2517.0 canary

We are also experiencing the same behavior. Tested on

Windows 10 Chrome Version 46.0.2490.80 m

Any update on this item? We'd really like to see DSCP working consistently in Windows 10. According to, it looks like it should be working reliably (except possibly in Win7?), but we're not seeing DSCP flags set in our pcaps taken on Win10 tests, even with "googDscp" set. What's the official word on DSCP support in Windows?
