RTCIceServer.username

Draft
This page is not complete.

I'm experimenting with structure for pages documenting members of dictionaries. Please contact sheppy with any feedback.

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The RTCIceServer dictionary's username property is a string which specifies the username to use when authenticating with the ICE server being described.

This value is used when the RTCIceServer describes a TURN server.

Syntax

var iceServer = {
                  ...
                  username = username,
                  ...
                };

var username = iceServer.username;

iceServer.username = newUsername;

Example

This example creates a new RTCPeerConnection which will use a TURN server at turnserver.example.org to negotiate connections. Logging into the TURN server will use the username "webrtc" and the creative password "turnpassword".

myPeerConnection = new RTCPeerConnection({
  iceServers: [
    {
      urls: "turn:turnserver.example.org",  // A TURN server
      username: "webrtc",
      credential: "turnpassword"
    }
  ]
});
