RTCPeerConnection.addStream()

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the spec changes.

The RTCPeerConnection.addStream() method adds a MediaStream as a local source of audio or video. If the negotiation already happened, a new one will be needed for the remote peer to be able to use it.

If the signalingState is set to "closed", an InvalidStateError is raised. If the signalingState is set to "stable", the event negotiationneeded is sent on the RTCPeerConnection.

Syntax

pc.addStream(mediaStream);

There is no return value for this method.

Parameters

mediaStream
Is a MediaStream is the stream to add.

Example

navigator.getUserMedia({video:true, audio:true}, function(stream) {
  var pc = new RTCPeerConnection();
  pc.addStream(stream);
