Description Madara Freimane 2022-11-14 02:17:11 PST
Starting with MacOS 13 and using Safari browser, we are not able share the screen, the shared content not available for other participants in a call.

Tested devices and browsers:
Bug is reproducible on:
- MacBook Pro (M1, 2020, MacOS Ventura 13.0) and Safari (V16.1 (18614.
- MacBook Pro (M1, MacOS Ventura 13.0.1) and Safari (V16.1 (18614.

Bug is not reproducible on:
- MacBook Pro (M1, MacOS Ventura 13.0) and Google Chrome (V107.0.5304.87)
- MacBook Pro (Intel, 2020, MacOS Monterey 12.6) and Safari (V 16.0 (17614., 17614))
- MacBook Pro (Intel, 2020, MacOS Monterey 12.6.1) and Safari (V16.1 (17614., 17614))

Use case:
User is in an active WebRTC call on Safari

MacOS User who uses Safari starts share the entire screen

Actual result:
When sharing just the window, indications of screenshare are on but other users don't see what is being shared. Full screen sharing doesn't work at all

Expected result:
User is able to share their screen /window and others are able to see the screen/window

Hi, Youenn!

Bug is still reproducible with MacOS Ventura 13.1 + Safari (Version 16.2 (18614.

I added new sysdiagnostics file:

If the bug fixed with https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=247310 , Do you know which version a correction could be expected with?
