RTCPeerConnection: removeStream() method

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.

Non-standard: This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The removeStream() method of the RTCPeerConnection interface 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.





A MediaStream specifying the stream to remove from the connection.
