The handling of this bug is really bad, nobody seems to care about it and it's
broken now a long time.
I see two possible solutions for this issue. Either WebRTC in chromium should
be fixed or it should be disabled in the Debian version of chromium. It simply
doesn't make any sens to ship a chromium version with WebRTC enabled when it
clearly doesn't work. This will just annoy users.
Of course the preferred way is to to fix the issue. I have proposed a patch in
 by using the libsrtp shipped with chromium sources. I did verify this
still works in chromium-41.
The other solution would be to find out what's broken with using the system
(Debian) version of libsrtp and get a fix for this. My guess it that it has to
do with the chromium sandbox and it's separation. I don't have the time and
knowledge to debug this any further, so more debugging on this has to be done
by someone else.
Luckily multistream support for WebRTC is arriving in Firefox, so hopefully
soon I won't need chromium anymore.
