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


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.

Obsolete properties

rtcpTransport This deprecated API should no longer be used, but will probably still work.
This property has been removed; the RTP and RTCP transports have been combined into a single transport. Use the transport property instead.


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 RTCRtpParameters object which 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.

Static methods

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