I am also interested in using webrtc in ionic

here is my favorite resource :slight_smile:

It has been a year, is there an update of using WebRTC for Ionic 2 or any guide/tutorial to achieve this?

I only manages to use PhoneRTC in my app but It was not the suitable one for me.

I only manages to use PhoneRTC in my app but It was not the suitable one for me. No one even has the idea to use webrtc in ionic or don’t know any tutorials.

Thanks for letting me know about PhoneRTC! I checked the github issues and apparently the project is not being maintained. Hope to see if there is an update from perhaps Ionic team with regards to WebRTC.

Hi folks, based on my experience there are only two options. Use a 3rd party provider like Twilio Video or Tokbox or use the inbuilt WebRTC APIs. WebRTC works beautiful in Chrome for Desktop, also on Android and even iOS with the ios-rtc-plugin. It all works perfect for face-to-face video chats but I’d suggest you use Twilio Video if it should be possible to have more than 2 participants. PhoneRTC is not maintained anymore and there is nothing good out there when it comes to open source SDK’s. Here some examples and tutorials on how to implement a normal video chat in JS:

Hope this helps
