RTCPeerConnection.removeStream()

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.

The RTCPeerConnection.removeStream() method removes 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. Because this method has been deprecated, you should instead use removeTrack() if your target browser versions have implemented 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

Parameters

mediaStream
A MediaStream specifying the stream to remove from the connection.

document.getElementById("closeButton").addEventListener("click", function(event) {
  pc.removeStream(videoStream);
  pc.close();
}, false);
