Getting Started - Flutter SDK

Flutter SDK is natively written SDK using Dart. It is compatible with both IOS and Android.

Install a Flutter SDK#

Flutter SDK is client for real-time communication for android and ios devices. It inherits the same terminology as all other SDKs does.

Minimum OS/SDK versions#

Android: minSdkVersion >= 21#

Use this package as a library#

Step 1: Add this package in your flutter project#

Run this command:#

flutter pub add videosdk

This will add a line like this to your package's pubspec.yaml (and run an implicit flutter pub get):

dependencies:  videosdk: ^0.0.4

Step 2: Update AndroidManifest.xml file for the permissions#

Ensure the following permission is present in your Android Manifest file, located in <project root>/android/app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml:

<uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.camera" /><uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.camera.autofocus" /><uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA" /><uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO" /><uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" /><uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE" /><uses-permission android:name="android.permission.MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS" />

If you need to use a Bluetooth device, please add:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH" /><uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH_ADMIN" />

The Flutter project template adds it, so it may already be there.

Also you will need to set your build settings to Java 8, because official WebRTC jar now uses static methods in EglBase interface. Just add this to your app level build.gradle:

android {    //...    compileOptions {        sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8        targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8    }}

If necessary, in the same build.gradle you will need to increase minSdkVersion of defaultConfig up to 21 (currently default Flutter generator set it to 16).

Step 3: Import it#

Now in your Dart code, you can use:

import 'package:videosdk/meeting.dart';import 'package:videosdk/meeting_builder.dart';import 'package:videosdk/participant.dart';import 'package:videosdk/rtc.dart';import 'package:videosdk/stream.dart';
