            Bug ID: 200417
           Summary: iOS RTCPeerConnection releases hardware H.264 encoder
                    only after pc.close()
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 12
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: iOS 12
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebRTC
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

The case is:
1) Create WebRtc call with audio and video.
2) Stop the video and renegotiate the connection to be audio only.

The expected result is:
All video resouses to be released. There is no video to be encoded.

The actual result is:
The hardware H.264 encoder is not released. The only way to release it is to call pc.close().

There is a limit of the hardware H.264 encoders on the iOS. I tested in iPad Mini 2, iOS 12.4 and the limit is 4 encoders.
When the limit is exhausted the log on the device says:

A test app that could be used to reproduce the problem:

A single RTCPeerConnection if renegotiated 5 times will reach the limit of HW H.264 encoders and will fail.
