To work with WebRTC, you need to request camera and microphone permissions, for example using the permission_handler plugin:

import 'package:permission_handler/permission_handler.dart';

Future main() async {

await Permission.microphone.request();


Also, you need to set the cross-platform option mediaPlaybackRequiresUserGesture to false in order to autoplay HTML5 audio and video.

After that, follow the instructions below for each platform where you want to use it.

To test WebRTC, you can try to visit the PubNub WebRTC Demo.

WebRTC on Android

On Android, you need to implement the androidOnPermissionRequest event, that is an event fired when the WebView is requesting permission to access a specific resource. This event is used to grant permissions for the WebRTC API, for example:

androidOnPermissionRequest: (controller, origin, resources) async {
return PermissionRequestResponse(resources: resources, action: PermissionRequestResponseAction.GRANT);

Also, you need to add these permissions in your AndroidManifest.xml file:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIDEO_CAPTURE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.AUDIO_CAPTURE" />

WebRTC on iOS


WebRTC is available starting from iOS 14.3+.

You need to set the iOS-specific option allowsInlineMediaPlayback to true, for example:

initialOptions: InAppWebViewGroupOptions(
crossPlatform: InAppWebViewOptions(
mediaPlaybackRequiresUserGesture: false,
android: AndroidInAppWebViewOptions(
useHybridComposition: true
ios: IOSInAppWebViewOptions(
allowsInlineMediaPlayback: true,

Note that on iOS, to be able to play video inline, the video HTML element must have the playsinline attribute, for example:

<video autoplay playsinline src="..."></video>

In your Info.plist file, you need to add also the following properties:

<string>Flutter requires access to microphone.</string>

<string>Flutter requires access to camera.</string>

If you open this file In Xcode, the NSMicrophoneUsageDescription property is represented by Privacy - Microphone Usage Description and NSCameraUsageDescription is represented by Privacy - Camera Usage Description.
