Dynamic Meeting Link

If you don't want to have the same meeting id every time, you can generate a random id each time and use it. Let's see how it's done.

Step 1. Create createMeeting.html and add createMeeting() function

Add a <script> which will contain createMeeting() which will create and redirect to a new meeting. And add this method to onClick of <button>

Your <body> should look something like this.

createMeeting.html
<body>
<script>
// Function to create meeting ID
function createMeeting() {
let meetingId = 'xxxxyxxx'.replace(/[xy]/g, function(c) {
var r = Math.random() * 16 | 0, v = c == 'x' ? r : (r & 0x3 | 0x8);
return v.toString(16);
});
console.log("http://"+ window.location.host + "?meetingId="+ meetingId)
document.getElementById("copyInput").value = "https://"+ window.location.host + "/meeting.html?meetingId="+ meetingId;
}

// Function to copy the link
function copyFunction() {
/* Get the text field */
var copyText = document.getElementById("copyInput");

/* Select the text field */
copyText.select();
copyText.setSelectionRange(0, 99999); /* For mobile devices */

/* Copy the text inside the text field */
navigator.clipboard.writeText(copyText.value);
}
</script>
<div>
<button onclick="createMeeting()">Create Meeting</button>
<br/>
<input type="text" id="copyInput">
<button onclick="myFunction()">Copy Link</button>
</div>
</body>

Step 2. Update your meeting.html to take the meetingId from the URL.

In this way, you will be able to access meetingId from the URL and each unique URL will work as different room

meeting.html
//...
<script>

script.addEventListener("load", function (event) {
//Get URL query parameters
const url = new URLSearchParams(window.location.search);

//...

const config = {
// ...
meetingId: url.get("meetingId"), // Get meeting id from params.
// ...
};

const meeting = new VideoSDKMeeting();
meeting.init(config);
});

</script>

//...

Step 3. Run and test

$ npm install -g live-server
$ live-server --port=8000

and open http://localhost:8000/createMeeting.html to create meeting URL
