Example Usage (Capture)

A simple capture example is shown below:

var capture = require('rtc-capture');
var attach = require('rtc-attach');
var opts = {
  plugins: [ require('rtc-plugin-temasys') ]
capture({ video: true, audio: true }, opts, function(err, stream) {
  if (err) {
    return console.error('could not capture stream: ', err);
  attach(stream, opts, function(err, el) {
    if (err) {
      return console.error('could not attach stream: ', err);

For a more detailed example (which includes video conferencing, please have a look at our helloworld demo which can be easily modified to use our Temasys plugin layer.


Documented below is an number of plugin functions that are used to both determine plugin suitability for a browser / platform and also ensure that the plugin is correctly loaded into the HTML document.

supported(platform) => Boolean

The supported function returns true if the platform (as detected using rtc-core/detect) is compatible with the plugin. By doing this prelimenary detection you can specify a number of plugins to be loaded but only the first the is supported on the current platform will be used.

init(opts, callback)

The init function is reponsible for ensuring that the current HTML document is prepared correctly.

attachStream(stream, bindings)

prepareElement(opts, element) => HTMLElement

The prepareElement function is used to prepare the video container for receiving a video stream. If the plugin is able to work with standard <video> and <audio> elements then a plugin should simply not implement this function.
