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.

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"
    }
  ]
});
