RTCPeerConnection.getStreamById()

Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

Non-standard: This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The RTCPeerConnection.getStreamById() method returns the MediaStream with the given id that is associated with local or remote end of the connection. If no stream matches, it returns null.

Warning: This property has been replaced with the RTCPeerConnection.getLocalStreams and RTCPeerConnection.getRemoteStreams properties. If you have code that uses stream, you will need to update, since browsers have begun to remove support for stream.
