Audio/Video Broadcast

To add Audio/Video Broadcast support in your application,

Include the MessageSDKBinding.iOS in the .cs file of your ViewController.

include-file
All the method calls will invoke their respective callback blocks as defined below.

1. Initialize the AVBroadcast object :

private AVBroadcast avbroadcast =  new AVBroadcast();

2. Send call request
Send Audio Video Broadcast call request to the userID specified. (Ensure that userID cannot be nil or empty)

void SendAVBroadcastRequestToUser(string userID,Action success, Action failure);

Return type: void
Callback Blocks:
(i). Action response
Invocation: After audio video broadcast call request is sent successfully.
Response: NSDictionary containing id of the user to whom audio video broadcast request has been sent.
Eg:

{
  callID = 2be701b036ff9b6e3085d35049e59483;
  userID = 5;
}

(ii). Action failure
Invocation: If an error occurs while sending audio video broadcast request
Response: NSError containing error code and message
Usage:


private void OnSuccess(NSDictionary dict) {
  Console.WriteLine("OnSuccess : " + dict);
}

private void OnFailure(NSError err) {
  Console.WriteLine("OnFailure : " + err);
}
avbroadcast.SendAVBroadcastRequestToUser("5",
          (dict) => { this.OnSuccess(dict); },
          (err) => { this.OnFailure(err);});

3. Start audio video broadcast
Start an audio-video broadcast within the container view. This function has to be called after sending/accepting audio-video broadcast request only. (Ensure that userID specified here should be the same while sending/accepting the request and also userID cannot be nil or empty)

void StartAVBroadcastWithInitiator(bool initiator, string callID, UIView view, Action failure);

Return type: void
Callback Blocks:
(i). Actionfailure
Invocation: If an error occurs while starting audio video broadcast request.
Response: NSError containing error code and message.
Usage:

Sender


private void OnSuccess(NSDictionary dict) {
  Console.WriteLine("OnSuccess : " + dict);
}

private void OnFailure(NSError err) {
  Console.WriteLine("OnFailure : " + err);
}
avbroadcast.StartAVBroadcastWithInitiator(true,
          (dict) => { this.OnSuccess(dict); },
          (err) => { this.OnFailure(err);});

Receiver


private void OnSuccess(NSDictionary dict) {
  Console.WriteLine("OnSuccess : " + dict);
}

private void OnFailure(NSError err) {
  Console.WriteLine("OnFailure : " + err);
}
avbroadcast.StartAVBroadcastWithInitiator(false,
          (dict) => { this.OnSuccess(dict); },
          (err) => { this.OnFailure(err);}););

4. End call
End audio-video broadcast with the user corresponding to userID specified. (Ensure that userID specified should be same as given when starting the audio-video broadcast and also userID cannot be nil or empty)

void EndAVBroadcastWithUser(string userID, Action success, Action failure);

Return type: void
Callback Blocks:
(i). Action successresponse
Invocation: After ending audio video broadcast successfully.
Response: NSDictionary containing id of the user with whom audio video broadcast has been ended.
Eg:

{  
 success = 1;
}

(ii). Actionfailure
Invocation: If an error occurs while ending audio video broadcast request
Response: NSError containing error code and message
Usage:


private void OnSuccess(NSDictionary dict) {
  Console.WriteLine("OnSuccess : " + dict);
}

private void OnFailure(NSError err) {
  Console.WriteLine("OnFailure : " + err);
}
avbroadcast.EndAVBroadcastWithUser("6,"
          (dict) => { this.OnSuccess(dict); },
          (err) => { this.OnFailure(err);});

5. Switch between front and rear camera in a Video call

void SwitchCamera();

Return type: void
Usage:

avbroadcast.SwitchCamera();
