Custom Video Track - iOS

  • You can create a Video Track using createCameraVideoTrack() method of VideoSDK class.
  • This method can be used to create video track using different encoding parameters, camera facing mode, and optimization mode.


  • encoderConfig:

    • type: CustomVideoTrackConfig
    • required: false
    • default: h360p_w640p
    • You can chose from the below mentioned list of values for the encoder config.
