MediaStreamTrack.remote

Obsolete
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

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;
