2.11.0 (September 15, 2020)

2110-september-15-2020 page anchor

This release improves support for local network privacy(link takes you to an external page) on iOS 14.0 and iPadOS 14.0. As iOS 14 does not support 32-bit devices, support for the armv7 32 bit processors has been removed from this release.


By default, the SDK no longer uses your local network on iOS 14 and above. Twilio Video balances privacy and performance, blocking communication routes that use your local network inappropriately in Peer-to-Peer Rooms while still ensuring a high rate of direct connections on iOS 14 devices.

If you use Peer-to-Peer Rooms then we recommend that you update your applications to this release in order to prepare for iOS 14. If you need features like multi-party video, network quality or recordings, then use Group Rooms. These Rooms use media servers provided by Twilio that are available on the public internet.

TVILocalNetworkPrivacyPolicy

tvilocalnetworkprivacypolicy page anchor

By default, Twilio Video does not access the local network on iOS 14 and above. If you want to allow Twilio Video to use the local network in a Peer-to-Peer Room then you can override the TVILocalNetworkPrivacyPolicy.


_10
let connectOptions = TVIConnectOptions(token: accessToken) { (builder) in
_10
// A permissions request may be triggered on iOS 14.
_10
builder.networkPrivacyPolicy = .allowAll
_10
})

If you select TVILocalNetworkPolicyAllowAll then you must add a privacy usage description with the NSLocalNetworkUsageDescription key in your application's .plist file.

You can find more information about network privacy in our Getting Started Guide.

2.6.0-preview1 (December 3, 2018)

260-preview1-december-3-2018 page anchor

This release introduces new TVIVideoSource APIs as a replacement for TVIVideoCapturer. A Source is a producer of video content (such as frames from the Camera), and delivers that content to a Sink.

We have updated ReplayKitExample(link takes you to an external page) to use the TVIVideoSource APIs, and you can try this app today. We will be updating our other examples during the preview period.

As part of this transition we are deprecating the following classes, protocols, and methods:

  • TVICameraCapturer
  • TVICameraCapturerDelegate
  • TVILocalVideoTrack.capturer
  • TVILocalVideoTrack.constraints
  • TVILocalVideoTrack.trackWithCapturer:
  • TVILocalVideoTrack.trackWithCapturer:enabled:constraints:name:
  • TVIVideoCapturer
  • TVIVideoCaptureConsumer
  • TVIVideoConstraints
  • TVIVideoConstraintsBuilder

The existing TVIVideoCapturer APIs will continue to function until the next major release of our SDK. The following replacement APIs are now available in this preview:

  • TVICameraSource
  • TVICameraSourceDelegate
  • TVILocalVideoTrack.trackWithSource:
  • TVILocalVideoTrack.trackWithSource:enabled:name:
  • TVIVideoSource
  • TVIVideoSink

Enhancements

  • It is possible to produce video from the camera in any aspect ratio using TVICameraSource and [TVIVideoSource requestOutputFormat:] . For example, you can now stream square 480x480 video for multi-party conferencing scenarios.
  • The H.264 encoding pipeline can now use hardware acceleration for cropping (in addition to scaling) when a TVIVideoSource is used.

Bug Fixes

  • Cropping a TVIVideoFrame to produce an I420 buffer (suitable for VP8 and VP9 encoding) no longer stretches the source image.

Known Issues

  • Unpublishing and republishing a TVILocalAudioTrack or TVILocalVideoTrack might not be seen by Participants. #34(link takes you to an external page)
  • Crash when downscaling RGB32 images tagged with TVIVideoOrientationDown . [ISDK-2307]
  • TVIVideoSink.sourceRequirements is not populated after calling TVIVideoSink.onFormatRequest() . [ISDK-2309]
  • Output format requests only support cropping and scaling, and can't drop frames to hit a target frame rate. [ISDK-2264]
  • The signaling connection may not recover after a network handover. [CSDK-2623]
  • Typically, a maximum of three H.264 encoders can be used at once. When this limit is exceeded no errors are raised and new video Tracks are not encoded. #17(link takes you to an external page)
  • Publishing H.264 video at greater than 1280x720 @ 30fps is not supported. If a failure occurs then no error is raised to the developer. [ISDK-1590]
  • Participant disconnect event can take up to 120 seconds to occur. #99(link takes you to an external page)
  • When iPhone is locked, if user connects to a group Room by answering an incoming call request on CallKit UI, the phone gets disconnected from Room after 90 seconds. #29(link takes you to an external page)

2.5.4 (November 26, 2018)

254-november-26-2018 page anchor

Enhancements

  • Improved the detection of, and recovery from media connection failures. Worst case recovery times have been reduced by up to 10 seconds.
  • Removed forced ICE restarts after a signaling connection handover. Superfluous ICE restarts use up resources, create extra signaling traffic, and involve an extra round trip time to re-establish ice connection.
  • Chooses a lower cost network for media traffic when one becomes available. For eg., when a call is originally on LTE and Wifi becomes available, media traffic is moved to the Wifi network.

2.0.0 (April 26, 2018)

200-april-26-2018 page anchor

This is our first Generally Available (GA) 2.0 release.

Thank you for the feedback that you've provided on our preview and beta releases. This version includes some minor API changes around TVIVideoFrame and TVIVideoRenderer / TVIVideoView reuse, but otherwise is very similar to 2.0.0-beta4.

Features

  • TVIVideoFrame.timestamp now uses CMTime instead of int64_t (in microseconds). We've found that developers writing custom TVIVideoCapturer s are sometimes confused at having to convert time into microseconds. Furthermore, this conversion can be a destructive operation which causes the original timescale to be lost. For those working with CFTimeInterval we've also added an initializer which accepts this argument. The following code snippet demonstrates how to modify your capture logic when dealing with a source which produces CMSampleBuffer s.

_10
// Before
_10
- (void)captureOutput:(AVCaptureOutput *)captureOutput didOutputSampleBuffer:(CMSampleBufferRef)sampleBuffer fromConnection:(AVCaptureConnection *)connection {
_10
CMTime presentationTimestamp = CMSampleBufferGetPresentationTimeStamp(sampleBuffer);
_10
int64_t timestamp = (int64_t)(CMTimeGetSeconds( presentationTimestamp ) * INT64_C( 1000000 ));
_10
TVIVideoFrame *frame = [[TVIVideoFrame alloc] initWithTimestamp:timestamp
_10
buffer:CMSampleBufferGetImageBuffer( sampleBuffer )
_10
orientation:TVIVideoOrientationUp];
_10
_10
[_captureConsumer consumeCapturedFrame:frame];
_10
}


_10
// After
_10
- (void)captureOutput:(AVCaptureOutput *)captureOutput didOutputSampleBuffer:(CMSampleBufferRef)sampleBuffer fromConnection:(AVCaptureConnection *)connection {
_10
CMTime timestamp = CMSampleBufferGetPresentationTimeStamp(sampleBuffer);
_10
TVIVideoFrame *frame = [[TVIVideoFrame alloc] initWithTimestamp:timestamp
_10
buffer:CMSampleBufferGetImageBuffer( sampleBuffer )
_10
orientation:TVIVideoOrientationUp];
_10
_10
[_captureConsumer consumeCapturedFrame:frame];
_10
}

  • TVIVideoFrame initializers are now marked as nullable instead of null_unspecified .
  • Added the optional invalidateRenderer method to the TVIVideoRenderer protocol. This method, if implemented, will be invoked when a TVIVideoRenderer object is removed from a video track by calling the [TVIVideoTrack removeRenderer:] method. This method allows the TVIVideoRenderer to perform any necessary cleanup that is required, for instance when the TVIVideoRender is to be reused with a different video track.
  • TVIVideoView implements the invalidateRenderer protocol method and will now better support reusing the view between different video tracks. #240(link takes you to an external page) Now, when a TVIVideoView is removed as a renderer for a video track, the following will occur:
    • A black frame is rendered to the view to clear the last frame and then the view is resized back to its original internal dimensions.
    • The hasVideoData flag is reset. This will allow the [TVIVideoViewDelegate videoViewDidReceiveData:] method to be fired again when new video data arrives.
    • The videoDimensions , videoOrientation , viewShouldRotateContent and mirror properties are reset to their respective default values.

Bug Fixes

  • The H.264 encoder now supports inputs in TVIPixelFormatYUV420PlanarFullRange or TVIPixelFormatYUV420PlanarVideoRange .

Known Issues

  • The SDK is incompatible with Firefox 63+ in a Peer-to-Peer Room. #35(link takes you to an external page)
  • Data Tracks might not be subscribed with Chrome 76+ in a Peer-to-Peer Room. #52(link takes you to an external page)
  • Unpublishing and republishing a TVILocalAudioTrack or TVILocalVideoTrack might not be seen by Participants. #34(link takes you to an external page)
  • The Video SDK could invoke UIView APIs on a background thread while invalidating a TVIVideoView .
  • Typically, a maximum of three H.264 encoders can be used at once. When this limit is exceeded no errors are raised and new video Tracks are not encoded.
  • Publishing H.264 video at greater than 1280x720 @ 30fps is not supported. If a failure occurs then no error is raised to the developer. [ISDK-1590]
  • Participant disconnect event can take up to 120 seconds to occur. #99(link takes you to an external page)

  • Quieted unnecessary warning logs when preferring codecs.
  • Fixed an issue where application thread would block up to 30 seconds when connecting to and destroying a TVIRoom in bad network conditions.
  • Fixed a bug where [TVIRoomDelegate room\:didDisconnectWithError:] was not getting invoked due to a race condition between a network handover and a user initiated [TVIRoom disconnect] call. #235(link takes you to an external page)

2.0.0-beta1 (February 7, 2018)

200-beta1-february-7-2018 page anchor

This release is focused on enabling more advanced audio use cases in Twilio Video. In the past you've been able to use TVIAudioSink to access raw audio samples from a TVIAudioTrack. However, these APIs did not allow developers to control the mechanism by which audio is captured and rendered in a Room.

We're now pleased to introduce TVIAudioDevice. This protocol works in concert with TVIAudioSink, giving you the ability to replace TVIDefaultAudioDevice. By implementing the TVIAudioDevice protocol, you can write your own audio capturer to feed audio samples to the Video SDK and an audio renderer to receive the remote Participant's audio samples. For example, you could integrate with ReplayKit2 and capture application audio for broadcast or play music using AVAssetReader.

See AudioDeviceExample(link takes you to an external page) which uses a custom Audio Device with CoreAudio to play the remote Participant's stereo audio. In the future, we will add more AudioDevices to the repo.

Please note, if you are providing your own custom audio device, it is necessary to support audio capturing in order to create an instance of TVILocalAudioTrack. Also, if the supplied audio device does not support audio rendering then the you will not be able to receive any audio samples via TVIAudioSink.

Enhancements

  • Added the ability to provide your own audio capturing and rendering via the TVIAudioDevice protocol. As a part of this change we've also added TVIAudioFormat which describes audio that is being captured and rendered.
  • Introduced TwilioVideo.audioDevice class property, and removed TVIConnectOptions.audioDevice . You should set your audio device on TwilioVideo before performing any other actions with the SDK such as creating Tracks or connecting to a Room.
  • The class factory methods for TVILocalAudioTrack and TVILocalDataTrack now return nullable instances.

2.0.0-preview8 (January 9, 2018)

200-preview8-january-9-2018 page anchor

As of this release we are removing support for iOS 8 and raising our minimum target to iOS 9.0. Twilio Video 1.x releases will continue to support iOS 8.1 and later.

Enhancements

  • [TVICameraCapturerDelegate cameraCapturerWasInterrupted:reason:] now uses AVCaptureSessionInterruptionReason instead of TVICameraCapturerInterruptionReason .
  • Added subscription failure callbacks to TVIRemoteParticipantDelegate.
    • failedToSubscribeToAudioTrack:error:forParticipant:
    • failedToSubscribeToDataTrack:error:forParticipant:
    • failedToSubscribeToVideoTrack:error:forParticipant:
  • This release deprecates TVIAudioController and adds a new TVIDefaultAudioDevice class. The TVIDefaultAudioDevice class allows you to record and playback audio and allows to configure AVAudioSession when you are connected to a Room.
  • TVIAudioController.startAudio() and TVIAudioController.stopAudio() have been removed in favor of a new property called TVIDefaultAudioDevice.enabled . This property provides developers with a mechanism to enable or disable the activation of the audio device prior to connecting to a Room or to stop or start the audio device while you are already connected to a Room. A Room can now be connected without activating the audio device by setting TVIDefaultAudioDevice.enabled to NO and can be enabled during the lifecycle of the Room by setting TVIDefaultAudioDevice.enabled to YES . The default value is YES . This API change was made to ensure full compatibility with CallKit as well as supporting other use cases where developers may need to disable the audio device during a call.
  • TVIDefaultAudioDevice can be provided to TVIConnectOptions while connecting to a Room.
  • TVIRoom has a new property audioDevice which points to the audio device used by the Room.

Examples #1 - Changing the audio route from speaker to receiver in a live call:


_20
TVIDefaultAudioDevice *audioDevice = [TVIDefaultAudioDevice audioDevice];
_20
_20
//...connect to a Room with audioDevice. By default the audio route will be configured to speaker.
_20
_20
room.audioDevice.block = ^ {
_20
// We will execute `kDefaultAVAudioSessionConfigurationBlock` first.
_20
kDefaultAVAudioSessionConfigurationBlock();
_20
_20
// Overwrite the audio route
_20
AVAudioSession *session = [AVAudioSession sharedInstance];
_20
NSError *error = nil;
_20
if (![session setMode:AVAudioSessionModeVoiceChat error:&error]) {
_20
NSLog(@"AVAudiosession setMode %@",error);
_20
}
_20
_20
if (![session overrideOutputAudioPort:AVAudioSessionPortOverrideNone error:&error]) {
_20
NSLog(@"AVAudiosession overrideOutputAudioPort %@",error);
_20
}
_20
};
_20
room.audioDevice.block();

Example #2 - Connecting to a Room using the AVAudioSessionCategoryPlayback category:


_22
TVIDefaultAudioDevice *audioDevice = [TVIDefaultAudioDevice audioDeviceWithBlock:^ {
_22
_22
// Execute the `kDefaultAVAudioSessionConfigurationBlock` first.
_22
kDefaultAVAudioSessionConfigurationBlock();
_22
_22
// Overwrite the category to `playback`
_22
AVAudioSession *session = [AVAudioSession sharedInstance];
_22
NSError *error = nil;
_22
if (![session setCategory:AVAudioSessionCategoryPlayback
_22

  • Our C++ core library is now built with the Xcode 9.0 toolchain.
  • Added several properties to TVIIceCandidatePairStats
    • activeCandidatePair - indicates if the candidate pair is active.
    • localCandidateIp - the IP address of the local candidate associated with this candidate pair.
    • remoteCandidateIp - the IP address of the remote candidate associated with this candidate pair.
    • relayProtocol - the relay protocol

Bug Fixes

  • TVICameraCapturer.init() is now annotated as null_unspecified instead of inheriting from NSObject.init() to match other initializers. [ISDK-1728]
  • Fixed a potential crash when connecting to Group Rooms and publishing Audio, Video and Data Tracks.
  • Fixed a crash which could occur in the signaling layer when disconnecting from a Room while receiving messages.
  • Resolved a multi-threading issue where TVIRemoteParticipantDelegate callbacks could be missed leading to [TVIRemoteParticipant unsubscribedFrom*Track:publication:forParticipant:] events raised when the underlying C++ core track is nullptr .

2.0.0-preview1 (September 11, 2017)

200-preview1-september-11-2017 page anchor

Our first 2.0 preview release delivers several important features including:

  • Support for the H.264 video codec.
  • Audio and video codec selection including iSAC, VP9 and more.
  • Sender side bandwidth controls.
  • Tracks can be named, and are assigned Server identifiers (SIDs).
  • A new object model which separates Track media and signaling, paving the way for selective subscription controls.

The full list of changes is:

  • Added TVIRemoteAudioTrack and TVIRemoteVideoTrack. These new classes are derived from TVIAudioTrack and TVIVideoTrack respectively. They have following common properties:
    • sid - Returns a unique identifier for the Track within the scope of a Room
    • isSubscribed - Indicates if the TVILocalParticipant is receiving audio or video.
  • Added a playbackEnabled property to TVIRemoteAudioTrack which allows developers to mute the audio received from a remote Participant.
  • Migrated the functionality of TVIParticipant into a new class called TVIRemoteParticipant . TVILocalParticipant and TVIRemoteParticipant are now derived from TVIParticipant .
  • Renamed TVIParticipantDelegate to TVIRemoteParticipantDelegate and changed the delegate to return TVIRemoteParticipant , TVIRemoteAudioTrack , and TVIRemoteVideoTrack in callbacks.
  • Added the following methods to TVIRemoteParticipantDelegate:
    • subscribedToAudioTrack:forParticipant: - Audio will start flowing from a remote Participant's audio Track after receiving this event.
    • unsubscribedFromAudioTrack:forParticipant: - Audio will stop flowing from a remote Participant's audio Track after receiving this event.
    • subscribedToVideoTrack:forParticipant: - Video will start flowing from a remote Participant's video Track after receiving this event.
    • unsubscribedFromVideoTrack:forParticipant: - Video will stop flowing from a remote Participant's video Track after receiving this event.
  • Renamed TVITrackStats to TVIRemoteTrackStats , TVIAudioTrackStats to TVIRemoteAudioTrackStats and TVIVideoTrackStats to TVIRemoteVideoTrackStats
  • Added TVITrackPublication , TVIAudioTrackPublication and TVIVideoTrackPublication which represent the mapping between a Track and its server generated sid .
  • The audioTracks and videoTracks getters on TVIParticipant now return TVITrackPublication s instead of TVITrack s.
  • Added TVILocalAudioTrackPublication and TVILocalVideoTrackPublication to represent a published TVILocalAudioTrack and TVILocalVideoTrack . Track publication classes are derived from TVIAudioTrackPublication and TVIVideoTrackPublication respectively.
  • Renamed [TVILocalParticipant addAudioTrack:] and [TVILocalParticipant addVideoTrack:] to [TVILocalParticipant publishAudioTrack:] and [TVILocalParticipant publishVideoTrack:] .
  • Added TVILocalParticipantDelegate which provides the following callbacks:
    • localParticipant:publishedAudioTrack: - Invoked when a local audio Track has been published to a Room.
    • localParticipant:publishedVideoTrack: - Invoked when a local video Track has been published to a Room.
  • Added localAudioTracks and localVideoTracks collections to TVILocalParticipant . These collections return TVILocalAudioTrackPublication s and TVILocalVideoTrackPublication s respectively.
  • Added a name property to TVITrack . Names can be assigned to a TVILocalAudioTrack and TVILocalVideoTrack using their class factory methods.
  • Removed the trackId property from TVITrack and moved it into TVILocalAudioTrack and TVILocalVideoTrack .
  • Added TVIAudioCodec and TVIVideoCodec as part of the new codec preferences API. Audio and video codec preferences can be set in TVIConnectOptions .
  • Added TVIRemoteAudioTrackPublication and TVIRemoteVideoTrackPublication to represent a remote Participant's published audio and video Tracks. Track publication classes are derived from TVIAudioTrackPublication and TVIVideoTrackPublication respectively.
  • Added TVIEncodingParameters which constrains how much bandwidth is used to share audio and video. This object has been added to TVIConnectOptions and can also be set on TVILocalParticipant after joining a Room.
  • Added support for the H.264 video codec in Peer-to-Peer and Group Rooms.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a potential crash when calling [TVIRoom disconnect:] before [TVIRoomDelegate didConnectToRoom:] is called and then destroying the TVIRoom in the [TVIRoomDelegate room\:didDisconnectWithError:] callback.
