Custom Screen Share Track

We have introduced the ability to pass a custom Screen Share track while sharing the screen of participants. This feature can be used to add custom video encoder config, optimization mode (whether you want to focus on motion, text or detail of the video) and background removal & video filter from external SDK(e.g., Banuba) and send it to other participants.

Creating a Custom Screen Share Track

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

Parameters

  • encoderConfig:

    • type: String
    • required: false
    • default: h720p_15fps
    • Allowed values : h360p_30fps | h720p_5fps | h720p_15fps | h1080p_15fps | h1080p_30fps
    • It will be the encoderConfigs you can want to use for the Video Track.
note

Above mentioned encoder configurations are valid for both, landscape as well as portrait mode.

  • optimizationMode
    • type: String
    • required: false
    • Allowed values: motion | text | detail
    • It will specifiy the optimization mode for the video track being generated.

Returns

  • MediaStreamTrack

Example

let customTrack = await VideoSDK.createScreenShareVideoTrack({
optimizationMode: "motion",
encoderConfig: "h720p_15fps",
});

Using Custom Screen Share Track

Custom Track with enableScreenShare()

In order to switch tracks during the meeting, you have to pass the MediaStreamTrack in the meeting.enableScreenShare() method.

note

Make sure to call disableScreenShare() befor you create a new track as it may lead to unexpected behaviour.

let customTrack = await VideoSDK.createScreenShareVideoTrack({
optimizationMode: "motion",
encoderConfig: "h720p_15fps",
});

meeting.enableScreenShare(customTrack);
