Events are the primary way LiveKit notifies your application of changes.

The following are events emitted by Room, listen to room events like

room.on(RoomEvent.TrackPublished, (track, publication, participant) => {})


Enumeration members

ActiveSpeakersChanged = "activeSpeakersChanged"

Active speakers changed. List of speakers are ordered by their audio level. loudest speakers first. This will include the LocalParticipant too.

Speaker updates are sent only to the publishing participant and their subscribers.

args: (Array<Participant>)

AudioPlaybackStatusChanged = "audioPlaybackChanged"

LiveKit will attempt to autoplay all audio tracks when you attach them to audio elements. However, if that fails, we'll notify you via AudioPlaybackStatusChanged. Room.canPlayAudio will indicate if audio playback is permitted.

ConnectionQualityChanged = "connectionQualityChanged"

Connection quality was changed for a Participant. It'll receive updates from the local participant, as well as any RemoteParticipants that we are subscribed to.

args: (connectionQuality: ConnectionQuality, participant: Participant)

ConnectionStateChanged = "connectionStateChanged"

Whenever the connection state of the room changes

DataReceived = "dataReceived"

Data received from another participant. Data packets provides the ability to use LiveKit to send/receive arbitrary payloads. All participants in the room will receive the messages sent to the room.

args: (payload: Uint8Array, participant: Participant, kind: DataPacket_Kind)

Disconnected = "disconnected"

When disconnected from room. This fires when room.disconnect() is called or when an unrecoverable connection issue had occured

LocalTrackPublished = "localTrackPublished"

A local track was published successfully. This event is helpful to know when to update your local UI with the newly published track.

LocalTrackUnpublished = "localTrackUnpublished"

A local track was unpublished. This event is helpful to know when to remove the local track from your UI.

When a user stops sharing their screen by pressing "End" on the browser UI, this event will also fire.

args: (LocalTrackPublication, LocalParticipant)

MediaDevicesChanged = "mediaDevicesChanged"

When input or output devices on the machine have changed.

MediaDevicesError = "mediaDevicesError"

When we have encountered an error while attempting to create a track. The errors take place in getUserMedia(). Use MediaDeviceFailure.getFailure(error) to get the reason of failure. [[getAudioCreateError]] and [[getVideoCreateError]] will indicate if it had an error while creating the audio or video track respectively.

args: (error: Error)

ParticipantConnected = "participantConnected"

When a RemoteParticipant joins after the local participant. It will not emit events for participants that are already in the room

ParticipantDisconnected = "participantDisconnected"

When a RemoteParticipant leaves after the local participant has joined.

ParticipantMetadataChanged = "participantMetadataChanged"

Participant metadata is a simple way for app-specific state to be pushed to all users. When RoomService.UpdateParticipantMetadata is called to change a participant's state, all participants in the room will fire this event.

args: (prevMetadata: string, Participant)

ParticipantPermissionsChanged = "participantPermissionsChanged"

A participant's permission has changed. Currently only fired on LocalParticipant. args: (prevPermissions: [[ParticipantPermission]], participant: Participant)

args: (RemoteTrackPublication, RemoteParticipant)

TrackStreamStateChanged = "trackStreamStateChanged"

StreamState indicates if a subscribed (remote) track has been paused by the SFU (typically this happens because of subscriber's bandwidth constraints)
