What is this?

A tiny browser module for detecting support for WebRTC and also for extracting the necessary constructors such as PeerConnection, SessionDescription, and IceCandidate.

Suitable for use with browserify/CommonJS on the client.

If you're not using browserify or you want AMD support use webrtcsupport.bundle.js.

This tiny module is used by SimpleWebRTC, but obviously can be used by itself.


npm install webrtcsupport

How to use it

Simply require it and it returns a simple object with support flags and useful support info and normalized constructors for various WebRTC related items.

var webrtcSupport = require('webrtcsupport');

// it returns an object with the following:
    support: // boolean whether basic WebRTC support exists
    dataChannel: // boolean whether WebRTC data channels are supported
    prefix: // returns browser prefix (either moz or webkit for now)
    screenSharing: // boolean guess of whether screensharing is supported,
    webAudio: // A support for web audio API
    AudioContext: // the audio context constructor from the web audio API
    PeerConnection: // constructor for creating a peer connection
    SessionDescription: // constructor for RTCSessionDescriptions
    IceCandidate: // constructor for ice candidate
