Vidyo's native WebRTC is a redesign and enhancement of Vidyo's WebRTC solution, which improves the scalability, quality, stability, and performance in your browser experience. The WebRTC client now directly interacts with the infrastructure without needing to go through transcoding gateways.

In version 4.1.24, Vidyo has significantly enhanced the way we support WebRTC calls by offering full native WebRTC support for Google Chrome™. Therefore, in order for your users to continue to make video calls using Chrome, you will need to update your application to the latest SDK and possibly make changes to your code by November 4, 2018.

Upgrade Your SDK

  • Vidyo Client library versions prior to 4.1.24 will be deprecated for Chrome by November 4, 2018.
  • Starting with version 4.1.24, the Vidyo Client library will automatically route Chrome users to native WebRTC. Therefore, you must upgrade your SDK to version 4.1.24 or later to maintain Chrome support in your application.

Verify and Possibly Update Your Code

The previous WebRTC APIs allowed you to pass arguments either by dictionary or directly. The new WebRTC APIs now only support dictionary notation. Therefore, you must ensure that all API calls you make pass in their arguments as dictionary objects.

You can quickly and easily make these modifications as outlined in the following example:


Previous API Call (ShowViewAt):

vidyoConnector.ShowViewAt(divId, offsetLeft, offsetTop, w, h);


Modified API Call (ShowViewAt):

vidyoConnector.ShowViewAt({viewId: divId, x: offsetLeft, y: offsetTop, width: w, height: h});

    Is this change required for Xamarin SDK?

    Xamarin uses the iOS and/or Android SDKs so this update is not relevant to Xamarin. It is only needed to update your web based application.
