MediaStreamTrack.remote

Deprecated
This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

The MediaStreamTrack.remote read-only property allows Javascript to know whether a WebRTC MediaStreamTrack is from a remote source or a local one. It returns a Boolean with a value of true if the track is sourced remotely (that is, sourced by an RTCPeerConnection), or false if it is sourced locally.

Syntax

var bool ​= track.remote;
