Version Notes
3.0.1 Added ioOptions for Socket IO
3.0.0 Migrated from Vue 2 to Vue 3
2.0.0 Replaced signaling server and webrtc library with SimplePeer
1.2.2 Added stunServer and turnServer properties
1.2.1 Added Vue CLI sample, npm audit fixes
1.2.0 Added the Screen Share button

Upgrading from V2 to V3

V3 of this component is a migration from Vue 2 to Vue 3. There is no new functionality yet. The older V2 will only be patched as needed and maintained as Vue 2.

Upgrading from V1 to V2

V2 of this component is mostly compatible with V1 but it completely replaces the internals with a new signaling server and a new SimplePeer client. Due to this, you will need to set the [socketUrl] to a new instance of the included .\vue-webrtc-lobby socket server. There is a default instance that you are welcome to use but you should run your own. If you are using STUN and TURN settings, you will now need to set those in [peerOptions] .

Quick Start with Vue CLI

vue create sample
cd sample
yarn install
npm install vue-webrtc --save

Now open the App.vue file and replace the HelloVue component with the code in the Usage section above.

npm run serve

See the /sample folder for a working project

  • Chat component
  • Audio selection
  • WebRTC data events
