Custom Audio Track

We have introduced the ability to pass a custom Audio track for the Audio of the participants. This feature can be used to add custom layers like background noise removal, echo cancellation, etc. on audio and send it to other participants.

Creating a Custom Audio Track

  • You can create a Audio Track using createMicrophoneAudioTrack() method of @videosdk.live/react-sdk.
  • This method can be used to create audio track using different encoding parameters and noise cancellation configration.

Parameters

  • microphoneId:

    • type: String
    • required: false
    • It will be the id of the mic from which the audio should be captured.
  • encoderConfig:

    • type: String
    • required: false
    • default: speech_standard
    • Allowed values : speech_low_quality | speech_standard | music_standard | standard_stereo | high_quality | high_quality_stereo
    • It will be the encoder configuration you want to use for Audio Track.
  • noiseConfig

    • echoCancellation

      • type: boolean
      • required: false
      • If true echo cancellation will turned on else it would be turned off.
    • autoGainControl

      • type: boolean
      • required: false
      • If true auto gain will turned on else it would be turned off.
    • noiseSuppression

      • type: boolean
      • required: false
      • If true noise suppression will turned on else it would be turned off.

Returns

  • MediaStreamTrack

Example

import { createMicrophoneAudioTrack } from "@videosdk.live/react-sdk";

let customTrack = await createMicrophoneAudioTrack({
encoderConfig: "high_quality",
noiseConfig: {
noiseSuppresion: true,
echoCancellation: true,
autoGainControl: true,
},
});

Using Custom Audio Track

Custom Track while initializing the meeting

If you are passing micEnabled: true in the config of MeetingProvider and want to use custom tracks from start of the meeting, you can pass custom track in the config as shown below.

import { createMicrophoneAudioTrack, MeetingProvider } from "@videosdk.live/react-sdk"

function App(){
const getTrack = async () => {
const track = await await createMicrophoneAudioTrack({
encoderConfig: "high_quality",
noiseConfig:{
noiseSuppresion: true,
echoCancellation: true,
autoGainControl: true,
}
});
setCustomTrack(track);
}

let [customTrack, setCustomTrack] = useState();

useEffect(() => {
getTrack();
}, []);

return customTrack && (
<MeetingProvider
config={{
meetingId,
micEnabled: true, //If true, it will use the passed custom track to turn mic on
webcamEnabled: true,

//Pass the custom audio track here
customMicrophoneAudioTrack: customTrack
}}
token={token}
reinitialiseMeetingOnConfigChange={true}
joinWithoutUserInteraction={true}
>
<MeetingView/>
</MeetingProvider>
);
}

Custom Track with unmuteMic()

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

You can also pass custom track in toggleMic() method of useMeeting.

note

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

import {
createMicrophoneAudioTrack,
useMeeting,
} from "@videosdk.live/react-sdk";

let customTrack = await createMicrophoneAudioTrack({
encoderConfig: "high_quality",
noiseConfig: {
noiseSuppresion: true,
echoCancellation: true,
autoGainControl: true,
},
});

const { unmuteMic, toggleMic } = useMeeting();

unmuteMic(customTrack);

//or

toggleMic(customTrack);
