RTCMultiConnection API Reference / "renegotiate" method

"renegotiate" method is useful to retry/renegotiate with or without adding additional streams!

This method renegotiates among all users in the same session. To renegotiate between two unique users; try "peers" object:


For Renegotiation,

// when renegotiating streams,
// it is preferred to always set OfferToReceive Audio/Video
// to make sure renegotiation NEVER fails!
connection.sdpConstraints.mandatory = {
    OfferToReceiveAudio: true,
    OfferToReceiveVideo: true

    screen: true,
    oneway: true

What is Renegotiation?

Renegotiation is a process allows you modify pre-created peer connections when you want to:
  1. append additional streams
  2. remove existing streams
  3. modify SDP for peers direction or something else

Renegotiation means re-exchanging offer/answer SDP among peers.

Renegotiation means you want to use same peer-connections to append dynamic streams at runtime.

// runtime sharing of audio/video among all users
    audio: true,
    video: true

// runtime sharing of screen among two unique users
// one is you; and other is person whose id is given below
    screen: true,
    oneway: true

Remember, renegotiation means: use existing peer connections to negotiate session descriptions.
