Using the new IFrame API is the easiest way to embed Eyeson video conferencing into your site or app using a few lines of HTML and Javascript.

  1. Integrate the Eyeson IFrame API script
    <script src=""></script>
  2. Provide an HTML element as meeting container
    <div id="meeting"></div>
  3. Call the EyesonIframe function and let the magic happen
    new EyesonIframe('#meeting', { accessKey: '...' });

IFrame API creates an iframe HTML element with all correct settings and loads Eyeson's default UI.

In advanced mode, methods to interact with Eyeson UI inside the iframe are available, like present, chat, snapshot, and also meeting events for the user like join and leave can be observed.

We've made changes to the playbacks API that you need to be aware of!

  • play_id is generated if omitted
  • playback_update sequence has changed
  • replacement_id takes userId, not clientId
  • EyesonJS (< 1.9.0) react to playback_update if _src: 'actioncable'
  • Update EyesonJS to v1.9.0 (npm or yarn)

Thanks to the implementation of Custom layout map API in Eyeson, you can now change the layout without having the need for pre-defined layouts provided by us. This has some major upsides regarding the control over the stream content.

In this tutorial we want to use the adaptive layout to arrange users around an image for a seamless presentation.

Example web app

You can instantly update the stream content during a live session using some HTML and Javascript.

This example includes

  • a local image uploading script which draws it on a canvas
  • layout calculation depending on the image size
  • sending canvas and calculated layout to show in Eyeson via AJAX requests
