The RTCRtpReceiver interface of the WebRTC API manages the reception and decoding of data for a MediaStreamTrack on an RTCPeerConnection.

Instance properties

RTCRtpReceiver.track Read only

Returns the MediaStreamTrack associated with the current RTCRtpReceiver instance.

RTCRtpReceiver.transport Read only

Returns the RTCDtlsTransport instance over which the media for the receiver's track is received.


An RTCRtpScriptTransform is used to insert a transform stream (TransformStream) running in a worker thread into the receiver pipeline, allowing stream transforms to be applied to incoming encoded video and audio frames.

Obsolete properties

rtcpTransport Deprecated

This property has been removed; the RTP and RTCP transports have been combined into a single transport. Use the transport property instead.

Static methods


Returns the most optimistic view of the capabilities of the system for receiving media of the given kind.

Instance methods


Returns an array of RTCRtpContributingSource instances for each unique CSRC (contributing source) identifier received by the current RTCRtpReceiver in the last ten seconds.


Returns an object that contains information about how the RTC data is to be decoded.


Returns a Promise whose fulfillment handler receives a RTCStatsReport which contains statistics about the incoming streams and their dependencies.


Returns an array including one RTCRtpSynchronizationSource instance for each unique SSRC (synchronization source) identifier received by the current RTCRtpReceiver in the last ten seconds.
