Quick Start with Prebuilt in iOS

Prebuilt SDK enables the opportunity to integrate real-time video & audio communication SDK without writing explicit code. It just requires 10 minutes to integrate.

Prerequisites

important

One should have a VideoSDK account to generate a token. Visit VideoSDK dashboard to generate token

Permissions

In order to embed VideoSDK in iOS, add these permissions to the Info.plist:

<key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key>
<string>Allow camera access to start video.</string>

<key>NSMicrophoneUsageDescription</key>
<string>Allow microphone access to start audio.</string>

Embeding Prebuilt in iOS

You will need to use the SFSafariViewController class.

  1. We will setup the SFSafariViewController to load the VideoSDK Prebuilt when the view appears.
import SafariServices

class ViewController: UIViewController, SFSafariViewControllerDelegate {

override func viewDidAppear(_ animated: Bool) {
super.viewDidAppear(animated)
var meetingUrl = URLComponents() // We will update the URL in next step
let safariVC = SFSafariViewController(url: meetingUrl.url!)
safariVC.delegate = self
present(safariVC, animated: true)
}
}
  1. Next step is to update the URL for the prebuilt. Make sure you replace the token and meetingId with respective variables.
import SafariServices

class ViewController: UIViewController, SFSafariViewControllerDelegate {

public var prebuiltVersion = "0.3.23" // VideoSDK Prebuilt Version
public var token = "YOUR_TOKEN_HERE" //Replace your token here
public var meetingId = "YOUR_MEETINGID" //Replace your meeting id

public var name = "John Doe"
public var webcamEnabled = "true"
public var micEnabled = "true"

override func viewDidAppear(_ animated: Bool) {
super.viewDidAppear(animated)
var meetingUrl = URLComponents()

//Setup the Prebuilt URL
meetingUrl.scheme = "https"
meetingUrl.host = "embed.videosdk.live"
meetingUrl.path = "/rtc-js-prebuilt/"+prebuiltVersion
meetingUrl.queryItems = [
URLQueryItem(name: "name", value: name),
URLQueryItem(name: "micEnabled", value: micEnabled),
URLQueryItem(name: "webcamEnabled", value: webcamEnabled),
URLQueryItem(name: "meetingId", value: meetingId),
URLQueryItem(name: "token", value: token),
]
let safariVC = SFSafariViewController(url: meetingUrl.url!)
safariVC.delegate = self
present(safariVC, animated: true)
}
}
  1. Run the app.
