Getting started with WebRTC Ingest

Using WebRTC for ingesting is an excellent way of providing users (and broadcasters alike) with an easy way of broadcasting without the need to install any software.

There are multiple ways to integrate the WebRTC Ingest, depending on use-case:

Embeddable sender

The WebRTC Ingest Embed can be standalone or embedded using iframe on your website without any coding effort.

You can find the latest version of the WebRTC Embed Sender at

Iframe example

Below is a simple example of how to embed a responsive WebRTC Ingest.

.vindral-container {
position: relative;
height: 0;
overflow: hidden;
max-width: 100%;
.vindral-container iframe {
position: absolute;
top: 0;
left: 0;
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
<div class="vindral-container" style="padding-bottom: 75%">
allow="camera; microphone"
