How do a capture a screen through WebRTC?

Hello!

So i have a base Wowza WebRTC example up and running for a webcam streaming, works fine. I can stream my webcam and play it both through WebRTC, and other methods such as RTMP.

What do i need to change in them to capture my screen instead of a webcam? If it’s only compatible with Chrome i’m fine with that.

Thanks!

Hello @Natalia Rodkina, Wowza does not currently support screen capture with WebRTC, but you are welcome to check out this sample code on WebRTC GitHub on how to potentially do just that:

Hello Rose,

  1. Can we combine the Audio from the Webcam and the Screen Capture simultaneously ?
  2. Can we combine the Audio-Video from the Webcam and the Screen Capture simultaneously ?

Wowza does not currently support screen capture with WebRTC. I’ve added this as a feature request. We are currently focused on webcam capture only. Please keep in mind that some WebRTC features are limited by what browser you are using for push/publish as well.
