Exactly the same as the specification. See the Specification Documentation!

getUserMedia(constraints, cb)

Similar to the specification, but slightly adjusted to have an easier API.

  • constraints is optional (makes things easier)

    • Defaults to {video: true, audio: true}
  • cb is a node-style error first callback

// these are the same thing
rtc.getUserMedia(function(err, stream){});
rtc.getUserMedia({video: true, audio: true}, function(err, stream){});

attachStream(stream, element)

  • Attaches a stream to a given video element
  • Returns the element the video was attached to
  • In IE and Safari, the video element will be replaced by an object element
    • Elements will not be replaced or modified unless they exist on the DOM
    • Regardless of replacement, the new object element will be returned
