<application>
<meta-data
android:name="live.videosdk.rnfgservice.notification_channel_name"
android:value="Meeting Notification"
/>
<meta-data
android:name="live.videosdk.rnfgservice.notification_channel_description"
android:value="Whenever meeting started notification will appear."
/>
<meta-data

<service android:name="live.videosdk.rnfgservice.ForegroundService" android:foregroundServiceType="mediaProjection"></service>
<service android:name="live.videosdk.rnfgservice.ForegroundServiceTask"></service>
</application>
</manifest>

1. Add below lines in android/app/build.gradle

android/app/build.gradle
  dependencies {
compile project(':rnfgservice') compile project(':rnwebrtc') compile project(':rnincallmanager')
}

2. Add below lines in android/settings.gradle

android/settings.gradle
include ':rnwebrtc'
project(':rnwebrtc').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/@videosdk.live/react-native-webrtc/android')

include ':rnincallmanager'
project(':rnincallmanager').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/@videosdk.live/react-native-incallmanager/android')

include ':rnfgservice'
project(':rnfgservice').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/@videosdk.live/react-native-foreground-service/android')

3. Add below lines in MainApplication.java

MainApplication.java
import live.videosdk.rnfgservice.ForegroundServicePackage;
import live.videosdk.rnincallmanager.InCallManagerPackage;
import live.videosdk.rnwebrtc.WebRTCModulePackage;

public class MainApplication extends Application implements ReactApplication {
private static List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
/* Initialise foreground service, incall manager and webrtc module */
new ForegroundServicePackage(),
new InCallManagerPackage(),
new WebRTCModulePackage(),
);
}
}

4. Add this line to android/gradle.properties:

android/gradle.properties
/* This one fixes a weird WebRTC runtime problem on some devices. */
android.enableDexingArtifactTransform.desugaring=false

5. Add below line in the android/app/proguard-rules.pro (optional: if you are using Proguard):

android/app/proguard-rules.pro
-keep class org.webrtc.** { *; }

Final Steps

Import Example

The easiest way to start is import @videosdk.live/react-native-sdk.

meeting.js
import {
register,
useMeeting,
MeetingConsumer,
MeetingProvider,
useParticipant,
RTCView,
MediaStream,
} from "@videosdk.live/react-native-sdk";

Register services at start of meeting

Call register event from the index.js file to initialize services such as incall manager and foreground services.

index.js
// Import the library
import { register } from '@videosdk.live/react-native-sdk';
import { AppRegistry } from 'react-native';
import { name as appName } from './app.json';
import App from './src/App.js';

// Register the service
register();
AppRegistry.registerComponent(appName, () => App);
