libdatachannel - C API Documentation

The following details the C API of libdatachannel. The C API is available by including the rtc/rtc.h header.

General considerations

Unless stated otherwise, functions return RTC_ERR_SUCCESS, defined as 0, on success.

All functions can return the following negative error codes:

  • RTC_ERR_INVALID: an invalid argument was provided
  • RTC_ERR_FAILURE: a runtime error happened
  • RTC_ERR_NOT_AVAIL: an element is not available at the moment
  • RTC_ERR_TOO_SMALL: a user-provided buffer is too small

All functions taking pointers as arguments (excepted the opaque user pointer) need the memory to be accessible until the call returns, but it can be safely discarded afterwards.

Common

rtcInitLogger

void rtcInitLogger(rtcLogLevel level, rtcLogCallbackFunc cb)

Arguments:

  • level: the log level. It must be one of the following: RTC_LOG_NONE, RTC_LOG_FATAL, RTC_LOG_ERROR, RTC_LOG_WARNING, RTC_LOG_INFO, RTC_LOG_DEBUG, RTC_LOG_VERBOSE.
  • cb (optional): the callback to pass the log lines to. If the callback is already set, it is replaced. If NULL after a callback is set, the callback is unset. If NULL on first call, the library will log to stdout instead.

cb must have the following signature: void myLogCallback(rtcLogLevel level, const char *message)

Arguments:

  • level: the log level for the current message. It will be one of the following: RTC_LOG_FATAL, RTC_LOG_ERROR, RTC_LOG_WARNING, RTC_LOG_INFO, RTC_LOG_DEBUG, RTC_LOG_VERBOSE.
  • message: a null-terminated string containing the log message

rtcPreload

void rtcPreload(void)

An optional call to rtcPreload preloads the global resources used by the library. If it is not called, resources are lazy-loaded when they are required for the first time by a PeerConnection, which for instance prevents from properly timing connection establishment (as the first one will take way more time). The call blocks until preloading is finished. If resources are already loaded, the call has no effect.

rtcCleanup

void rtcCleanup(void)

An optional call to rtcCleanup requests unloading of the global resources used by the library. If all created PeerConnections are deleted, unloading will happen immediately and the call will block until unloading is done, otherwise unloading will happen as soon as the last PeerConnection is deleted. If resources are already unloaded, the call has no effect.

rtcSetUserPointer

void rtcSetUserPointer(int id, void *user_ptr)

Sets a opaque user pointer for a Peer Connection, Data Channel, Track, or WebSocket. The user pointer will be passed as last argument in each corresponding callback. It will never be accessed in any way. The initial user pointer of a Peer Connection or WebSocket is NULL, and the initial one of a Data Channel or Track is the one of the Peer Connection at the time of creation.

Arguments:

  • id: the identifier of Peer Connection, Data Channel, Track, or WebSocket
  • user_ptr: an opaque pointer whose meaning is up to the user

PeerConnection

rtcCreatePeerConnection

int rtcCreatePeerConnection(const rtcConfiguration *config)

typedef struct {
    const char **iceServers;
    int iceServersCount;
    const char *bindAddress;
    rtcCertificateType certificateType;
    rtcTransportPolicy iceTransportPolicy;
    bool enableIceTcp;
    bool disableAutoNegotiation;
    uint16_t portRangeBegin;
    uint16_t portRangeEnd;
    int mtu;
    int maxMessageSize;
} rtcConfiguration;

Creates a Peer Connection.

Arguments:

  • config: the configuration structure, containing:
  • iceServers (optional): an array of pointers on null-terminated ice server URIs (NULL if unused)
  • iceServersCount (optional): number of URLs in the array pointed by iceServers (0 if unused)
  • bindAddress (optional): if non-NULL, bind only to the given local address (ignored with libnice as ICE backend)
  • certificateType (optional): certificate type, either RTC_CERTIFICATE_ECDSA or RTC_CERTIFICATE_RSA (0 or RTC_CERTIFICATE_DEFAULT if default)
  • iceTransportPolicy (optional): ICE transport policy, if set to RTC_TRANSPORT_POLICY_RELAY, the PeerConnection will emit only relayed candidates (0 or RTC_TRANSPORT_POLICY_ALL if default)
  • enableIceTcp: if true, generate TCP candidates for ICE (ignored with libjuice as ICE backend)
  • disableAutoNegotiation: if true, the user is responsible for calling rtcSetLocalDescription after creating a Data Channel and after setting the remote description
  • portRangeBegin (optional): first port (included) of the allowed local port range (0 if unused)
  • portRangeEnd (optional): last port (included) of the allowed local port (0 if unused)
  • mtu (optional): manually set the Maximum Transfer Unit (MTU) for the connection (0 if automatic)
  • maxMessageSize (optional): manually set the local maximum message size for Data Channels (0 if default)

Return value: the identifier of the new Peer Connection or a negative error code.

The Peer Connection must be deleted with rtcDeletePeerConnection.

The format of each entry in iceServers must match the format [("stun"|"turn"|"turns") ":"][login ":" password "@"]hostname[":" port]["?transport=" ("udp"|"tcp"|"tls")]. The default scheme is STUN, the default port is 3478 (5349 over TLS), and the default transport is UDP. For instance, a STUN server URI could be mystunserver.org, and a TURN server URI could be turn:myuser:12345678@turnserver.org. Note transports TCP and TLS are only available for a TURN server with libnice as ICE backend and govern only the TURN control connection, meaning relaying is always performed over UDP.

rtcDeletePeerConnection

int rtcDeletePeerConnection(int pc)

Deletes the specified Peer Connection.

Arguments:

  • pc: the Peer Connection identifier

Return value: RTC_ERR_SUCCESS or a negative error code

After this function has been called, pc must not be used in a function call anymore. This function will block until all scheduled callbacks of pc return (except the one this function might be called in) and no other callback will be called for pc after it returns.

It is called when the channel receives a message. While it is set, messages can't be received with rtcReceiveMessage.

int rtcSetBufferedAmountLowCallback(int id, rtcBufferedAmountLowCallbackFunc cb)

cb must have the following signature: void myBufferedAmountLowCallback(int id, void *user_ptr)

It is called when the buffered amount was strictly higher than the threshold (see rtcSetBufferedAmountLowThreshold) and is now lower or equal than the threshold.

Return value: true if the channel exists and is open, false otherwise

rtcIsClosed

bool rtcIsClosed(int id)

Arguments:

Return value: RTC_ERR_SUCCESS or a negative error code

The message is sent immediately if possible, otherwise it is buffered to be sent later.

Data Channel and WebSocket: If the message may not be sent immediately due to flow control or congestion control, it is buffered until it can actually be sent. You can retrieve the current buffered data size with rtcGetBufferedAmount. Tracks are an exception: There is no flow or congestion control, messages are never buffered and rtcGetBufferedAmount always returns 0.

rtcGetBufferedAmount

int rtcGetBufferedAmount(int id)

Retrieves the current buffered amount, i.e. the total size of currently buffered messages waiting to be actually sent in the channel. This does not account for the data buffered at the transport level.

Return value: the buffered amount or a negative error code

rtcGetBufferedAmountLowThreshold

int rtcSetBufferedAmountLowThreshold(int id, int amount)

Changes the buffered amount threshold under which BufferedAmountLowCallback is called. The callback is called when the buffered amount was strictly superior and gets equal to or lower than the threshold when a message is sent. The initial threshold is 0, meaning the the callback is called each time the buffered amount goes back to zero after being non-zero.

Arguments:

  • id: the channel identifier
  • amount: the new buffer level threshold

Return value: the identifier of the new WebSocket or a negative error code

rtcReceiveMessage

Return value: RTC_ERR_SUCCESS or a negative error code (In particular, RTC_ERR_NOT_AVAIL is returned when there are no pending messages)

If buffer is NULL, the message is not copied and kept pending but the size is still written to size.

rtcGetAvailableAmount

int rtcGetAvailableAmount(int id)

Retrieves the available amount, i.e. the total size of messages pending reception with rtcReceiveMessage. The function may only be called if MessageCallback is not set.

Arguments:
