Is it safe to disable WebRTC? Is there any errors after disable it?
Yes, it's perfectly safe to disable WebRTC. Many people including myself have done it, too. However, in some scenarios disabling it can actually keep you better protected - an example would be disabling it to prevent a WebRTC leak which would result in your real IP address being given away whilst browsing with a proxy/proxy extension (known as extensions for VPN).

WebRTC is widely used for things such as voice/video web applications (RTC stands for Real-Time Communication). You can re-enable it at any time should you need to use a web application which requires it to be enabled and used to function correctly. ;)
