This application should give you a ready-made starting point for writing your own video apps with Twilio Video. Before we begin, we need to collect all the config values we need to run the application:
- Account SID: Your primary Twilio account identifier - find this in the console here.
- API Key: Used to authenticate - generate one here.
- API Secret: Used to authenticate - just like the above, you'll get one here.

Setting Up The Application
Create a configuration file for your application:
cp .env.template .env
.env with the configuration parameters we gathered from above.

Now we should be all set! Run the application:
Your application should now be running at http://localhost:3000. Just enter the name of the room you want to join and click on 'Join Room'. Then, open another tab and join the same room. Now, you should see your own video in both the tabs!
The project contains some use-case examples for the Twilio Video JS SDK. After running the application by following the instructions above, go to http://localhost:3000/examples to try them out.
