MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:


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.


var bool ​= track.remote;
