You’re a gorgeous person, I’ll try right away.
I hope I can.

I’m trying, but I guess it’s not what I want.
My goal is to ensure that the person connecting to the call can switch between my cameras.
You can see my cameras with a “camera switch” button.
How can I do this by changing where in the code line below?

// Generate random room name if needed
if (!location.hash) {
location.hash = Math.floor(Math.random() * 0xFFFFFF).toString(16);
}
const roomHash = location.hash.substring(1);

// TODO: Replace with your own channel ID
const drone = new ScaleDrone(‘2xmbUiTsqTzukyf7’);
// Room name needs to be prefixed with ‘observable-’
const roomName = ‘observable-’ + roomHash;
const configuration = {
iceServers: [{
urls: ‘stun:stun.l.google.com:19302’
}]
};
let room;
let pc;

function onSuccess() {};
function onError(error) {
console.error(error);
};

drone.on(‘open’, error => {
if (error) {
return console.error(error);
}
room = drone.subscribe(roomName);
room.on(‘open’, error => {
if (error) {
onError(error);
}
});
// We’re connected to the room and received an array of ‘members’
// connected to the room (including us). Signaling server is ready.
room.on(‘members’, members => {
console.log(‘MEMBERS’, members);
// If we are the second user to connect to the room we will be creating the offer
const isOfferer = members.length === 2;
startWebRTC(isOfferer);
});
});

// Send signaling data via Scaledrone
function sendMessage(message) {
drone.publish({
room: roomName,
message
});
}

function startWebRTC(isOfferer) {
pc = new RTCPeerConnection(configuration);

// ‘onicecandidate’ notifies us whenever an ICE agent needs to deliver a
// message to the other peer through the signaling server
pc.onicecandidate = event => {
if (event.candidate) {
sendMessage({‘candidate’: event.candidate});
}
};

// If user is offerer let the ‘negotiationneeded’ event create the offer
if (isOfferer) {
pc.onnegotiationneeded = () => {
pc.createOffer().then(localDescCreated).catch(onError);
}
}

// When a remote stream arrives display it in the #remoteVideo element
pc.onaddstream = event => {
remoteVideo.srcObject = event.stream;
};

navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({
audio: true,
video: true,
}).then(stream => {
// Display your local video in #localVideo element
localVideo.srcObject = stream;
// Add your stream to be sent to the conneting peer
pc.addStream(stream);
}, onError);

// Listen to signaling data from Scaledrone
room.on(‘data’, (message, client) => {
// Message was sent by us
if (client.id === drone.clientId) {
return;
}

if (message.sdp) {
  // This is called after receiving an offer or answer from another peer
  pc.setRemoteDescription(new RTCSessionDescription(message.sdp), () => {
    // When receiving an offer lets answer it
    if (pc.remoteDescription.type === 'offer') {
      pc.createAnswer().then(localDescCreated).catch(onError);
    }
  }, onError);
} else if (message.candidate) {
  // Add the new ICE candidate to our connections remote description
  pc.addIceCandidate(
    new RTCIceCandidate(message.candidate), onSuccess, onError
  );
}

});
}

function localDescCreated(desc) {
pc.setLocalDescription(
desc,
() => sendMessage({‘sdp’: pc.localDescription}),
onError
);
}

A remote person changing your local camera is difficult (or impossible) to implement, for there are security implications that block this behavior. This is something that you have to initiate through an action on your local machine itself.

Have you seen examples of apps or services that are able to do what you are trying to do?

I do not know such a system. However, it was possible to switch between online traffic cameras and security cameras.

I’m running your source code on https://artunduzay.com/digitalinspection/index.
Is it possible to show two cameras at the same time as User and Enviroment and add “ull screen” feature?
In this case, the participant can view the camera he wants to watch in full screen.
The microphone will remain the default device.

If you can help me with this, I would be very happy.
I don’t want to take any more of your time.
Thanks in advance,

Unfortunately no, that isn’t possible either. The media capabilities in the browser aren’t quite as feature-rich as what you describe. You can only have one video source and one audio source active at any one time - even if your system has multiple sources available :pensive:

sample1- I can get two camera streams in the link below.
multiple camera stream sample

sample2- In the link below, I can stop this camera and make it full screen.
webcam/camera streaming via video player template
What I want is to add the simultaneous broadcasting feature of (sample1) two cameras to the code you wrote, and (sample2) to make it full screen and pause as in the video player interface.

The microphone can remain the default device.

Can you please check it?

Did you have a chance to check? @kirupa

Hi really simple and helpful post to start with WebRTC. Is this possible to Record this 1:1 Video chat along with Audio ? if yes then can someone guide in right direction please.

Hello Sir Thank you for this tutorial I found this helpful.
But I am facing an issue in connecting using different network.
I am using one device on my wifi and other device on my cellular network but I can’t create stream in this way. kindly guide me.

can anyone help me change it to use MQTT instead of scalardrone !!
