OpenVidu Call demo, built with React, allows users to make videoconference calls with many of the capabilities integrated by OpenVidu platform. It is a frontend-only application.
OpenVidu-Call-React is composed by the five React components displayed in the image below.
This is the main component of OpenVidu-Call-React. It allows you to establish a connection with your video roommates. This component allows the user to mute the microphone, unpublish the webcam, share the screen, open the chat and leave the session.
This component provides to Video-room Component a chatting system, integrated with the layout, that allows users to type to each other.
With OpenVidu Layout, this component is the responsible of displaying the video stream of each user in a nice way. On the right, we can see four streams displayed in the same videoconference.
