How do I add screen sharing to my app?

Objective

Adding screen sharing to an app.

Applies To

  • Video API
  • Screen Sharing

Procedure

You can publish a stream that uses a video view of your screen (instead of a camera) as the source. Screen sharing is an effective way to collaborate. Here are just a few ways customers use screen sharing:

  • Enable users to share content or present slides and documents.
  • Enable co-viewing of media and events.
  • Power virtual classrooms or seminars.
  • Build knowledge sharing applications.
  • Power interactive e-consultations.
  • Enhance customer support

A client connected to the session can subscribe to the stream (and view it), just as they would subscribe to a stream that uses a camera as the source.

Detailed instructions for adding screen sharing to your Web or mobile app can be found in the documentation below:
