DTX is an advanced configuration of the Opus audio codec that allows for large reductions in on audio traffic when a participant is silent. When DTX is enabled, part of the silent audio packets won’t be transmitted. Senior WebRTC engineer, Germán Goldenstein, shares the pros and cons of this very powerful technique for audio optimization and the kind of use cases where it makes the most sense.
