The RTCRtpReceiver method getStats() asynchronously requests an RTCStatsReport object which provides statistics about incoming traffic on the owning RTCPeerConnection, returning a Promise whose fulfillment handler will be called once the results are available.


var promise = RTCRtpReceiver.getStats();

Return value

A JavaScript Promise which is fulfilled once the statistics are available. The promise's fulfillment handler receives as a parameter a RTCStatsReport object containing the collected statistics.

The returned statistics include those from all streams which are coming in through the RTCRtpReceiver, as well as any of their dependencies.

receiver.getStats().then(function(stats) {
  document.getElementById("lostpackets").innerText =
