Installation

Step 1 : Install Sariska Media Transport Library

With NPM

npm i sariska-media-transport

With CDN

Add a script tag to your HTML head

<script src="https://sdk.sariska.io/umd/sariska-media-transport.min.js"></script>

Compatibility for React Native: Polyfill Required

At the very beginning of your index.js file, insert the following import statement:

import 'sariska-media-transport/dist/esm/modules/mobile/polyfills';

This is only required for React Native applications.

Step 2 : Initialize the SDK

Kickstart the SDK with this simple command:

import SariskaMediaTransport from "sariska-media-transport";
SariskaMediaTransport.initialize();

Step 3 : Establish a WebSocket Connection

Create a persistent connection for real-time communication.

const token = {your-token};

const connection = new SariskaMediaTransport.JitsiConnection(token, "roomName", isNightly);

connection.addEventListener(SariskaMediaTransport.events.connection.CONNECTION_ESTABLISHED, () => {
  console.log('connection successful!!!');
});

// Handle connection events
connection.addEventListener(SariskaMediaTransport.events.connection.CONNECTION_FAILED, (error) => {
    // Token expired, set again
    if (error  === SariskaMediaTransport.events.connection.PASSWORD_REQUIRED) {
    // Set a new token
    connection.setToken(token)
    console.log('connection disconnect!!!', error);
  }
});

connection.addEventListener(SariskaMediaTransport.events.connection.CONNECTION_DISCONNECTED, (error) => {
  console.log('connection disconnect!!!', error);
});

connection.connect();
Use isNightly: true to access the latest features, or omit it for the stable version.

const appData = {
    // Keys for platforms to stream
    streamKeys: [
        {streamKey: "youtube", streamValue: "youtube-stream-key"}, 
        {streamKey: "facebook", streamValue: "facebook-stream-key"}, 
        {streamKey: "twitch", streamValue: "twitch-stream-key"}, 
        {streamKey: "vimeo", streamValue: "vimeo-stream-key"}, 
        {streamKey: "periscope", streamValue: "periscope-stream-key"}, 
        {streamKey: "instagram",streamValue: "instagram-stream-key"}
        // Add keys for other platforms as needed
        ],
    // Optional list of additional RTMP URLs for streaming
    streamUrls: ["rtmp://test-rtmp-url-1", "rtmp://test-rtmp-url-2", "rtmp://test-rtmp-url-n"],
    isRecording: false,
    // Specify "live" for embedding the stream
    app: "live",
    stream: "livestream"
}

conference.startRecording({
    mode: SariskaMediaTransport.constants.recording.mode.STREAM, // Set mode to "stream"
    appData: JSON.stringify(appData) // Pass app data as JSON string
});


// Listen for RECORDER_STATE_CHANGED event to track streaming status
conference.addEventListener("RECORDER_STATE_CHANGED", (payload)=>{ 
    // Verify mode is "stream" again
    const mode = payload._mode;
    // Get the live streaming session ID
    const sessionId =  payload._sessionID;
    // Check the streaming status: on, off, or pending

conference.startRecording({
  mode: SariskaMediaTransport.constants.recording.mode.FILE,
  appData: JSON.stringify(appData)
});


// Monitor recording state
conference.addEventListener("RECORDER_STATE_CHANGED", (payload)=>{ 
   const mode = payload._mode; // Recording mode (e.g., "file")
   const sessionId =  payload._sessionID; // Unique identifier for the cloud recording session
   const status =  payload._status; // Current recording status ("on", "off", or "pending")
// Handle recording state changes based on mode, sessionId, and status
});


// Stop recording
conference.stopRecording(sessionId); // Provide the session ID

PSTN

  • Dial-in(PSTN)

// Retrieve the phone pin and number for users to join via PSTN:
const phonePin = conference.getPhonePin(); // Get the phone pin for PSTN access
const phoneNumber = conference.getPhoneNumber() // Get the phone number for PSTN access

Share this phone number and pin with users to enable PSTN conference call participation.

  • Dial-out(PSTN)

// Dial a phone number to invite a participant to the conference
conference.dial(phoneNumber)

This initiates a call to the provided phone number, inviting them to join the conference.

Lobby/Waiting Room

// Join the lobby
conference.joinLobby(displayName, email); // Request to join the conference lobby


// Event listeners for lobby-related actions:
conference.addEventListener(SariskaMediaTransport.events.conference.LOBBY_USER_JOINED, (id, name) => {
// Handle events when a user joins the lobby
})

conference.addEventListener(SariskaMediaTransport.events.conference.LOBBY_USER_UPDATED,  (id, participant)=> {
// Handle events when a user's information in the lobby is updated
})

// Additional event listeners for lobby actions:
conference.addEventListener(SariskaMediaTransport.events.conference.LOBBY_USER_LEFT, id=> {
})

conference.addEventListener(SariskaMediaTransport.events.conference.MEMBERS_ONLY_CHANGED,  enabled=> {
})


// Moderator actions for lobby access:
conference.lobbyDenyAccess(participantId); // Deny access to a participant in the lobby
conference.lobbyApproveAccess(participantId); // Approve access to a participant in the lobby


// Lobby management methods:
conference.enableLobby() // Enable lobby mode for the conference (moderator only)
conference.disableLobby(); // Disable lobby mode for the conference (moderator only)
conference.isMembersOnly(); // Check if the conference is in members-only mode (lobby disabled)

SIP Video Gateway

// Initiate a SIP video call
conference.startSIPVideoCall("address@sip.domain.com", "display name"); // Start a SIP video call with the specified address and display name

// Terminate a SIP video call
conference.stopSIPVideoCall('address@sip.domain.com'); // End the SIP video call with the specified address

// Event listeners for SIP gateway state changes
conference.addEventListener("VIDEO_SIP_GW_SESSION_STATE_CHANGED", (state)=>{
   // Handle events when the SIP gateway session state changes (on, off, pending, retrying, failed)
   console.log("state", state);
})

// Event listener for SIP gateway availability changes
conference.addEventListener("VIDEO_SIP_GW_AVAILABILITY_CHANGED", (status)=>{
   // Handle events when the SIP gateway availability changes (busy or available)
   console.log("status", status); 
})

Peer-to-Peer Mode

Designed for efficient communication between two participants.

  • Start Peer-to-Peer Mode

    Sariska automatically activates Peer-to-Peer mode when your conference has exactly two participants. This mode bypasses the central server and directly connects participants, maximizing bandwidth efficiency and reducing latency. However, even with more than two participants, you can forcefully start Peer-to-Peer mode.

conference.startP2PSession();
