Initialization

First, you need to select a room, authorize the app and give it access to your webcam.

Enter room ID

Select a room

If you haven't selected a room yet, the app will prompt you to enter a room name. Alternatively, if you access a link that contains a fragment identifier (e.g. safe://mediawebrtc.ben#example), the app will use it as the room name.

App.js
this.state = {
  'room': location.hash.length > 1 ? location.hash.slice(1) : null,
  'randomRoom': roomNameGenerator()
}

Authorize the app

Once the app knows what room you want to connect to, it sends an authorization request to SAFE Launcher.

Authorize app

POST /auth
store.js
safeAuth.authorise({
  'name': 'SAFE Signaling Demo',
  'id': APP_ID,
  'version': version,
  'vendor': 'MaidSafe Ltd.',
  'permissions': ['LOW_LEVEL_API']
},
  APP_ID)

For this example app, APP_ID has been set to example.signaling.v1.

store.js
export const APP_ID = 'example.signaling.v1'

SAFE Launcher displays a prompt with basic information about the app along with the requested permission (LOW_LEVEL_API). You can authorize this request by clicking on "ALLOW".

Authorization

After you authorize the request, the app receives an authorization token.

Check if an offer is present

If you are the first user to join a room (the person initiating the call), the app creates an offer and tries to store it inside a structured data with an ID based on the name of the room. This offer includes a session description in SDP format, and it needs to be delivered to the call recipient (the person receiving the call).

If you are joining a room where another user is waiting for you, the app needs to receive an offer from the caller (the person initiating the call). The app expects this offer to be stored inside a structured data with an ID based on the name of the room. The call recipient then responds with an answer message, which also contains an SDP description.

Room.js
readData(this.props.room)
  .then((payload) => {
    this.setState({'peerPayload': payload, 'authorised': true})
  }).catch((err) => {
    console.log(err)
    this.setState({'peerPayload': false, 'authorised': true})
  })

If an offer is found

The app creates an answer and stores it inside a structured data with an ID based on the random ID provided by the caller.

If an offer is not found

The app creates an offer and tries to store it inside a structured data with an ID based on the name of the room.

Request access to video devices

The app also prompts you for permission to use one video and one audio input device using the MediaDevices.getUserMedia() method.

VideoBlock.js
navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({
  audio: true,
  video: {
    facingMode: 'user'
    // frameRate: { ideal: 10, max: 15 }
  }
})

Requesting access to video devices

After you click on "Allow", the app starts showing a video stream of your webcam.
