RTCPeerConnection.remoteDescription

by 1 contributor:

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 read-only property RTCPeerConnection.remoteDescription returns a RTCSessionDescription describing the session for the local end of the connection. If it has not yet been set, it can be null.

Syntax

 var sessionDescription = peerConnection.remoteDescription;

Example

var pc = new RTCPeerConnection();
…
var sd = pc.remoteDescription;
if (sd) {
  alert("Remote session: type='" +         
        sd.type + "'; sdp description='" +
        sd.sdp + "'");
}
else {
  alert("No remote session yet.");
}
