Integrating the Eyeson IFrame API

To get started, you need to integrate the Eyeson IFrame API script into your webpage. You can do this by adding the following script tag to your HTML document:


Next, you need to provide an HTML element that will serve as the container for the meeting. For example, you can create a div element with the id "meeting" to act as the container:


After setting up the script and meeting container, you're ready to initialize a new EyesonIframe instance for creating the iframe element. This function requires two parameters: the selector for the meeting container and the options object with either the accessKey or the guest token. You can use the selector as an id, a query selector, or the node itself. Among accessKey or guest token, the options object can include various settings.

Utilize the Eyeson API to start a meeting and then you have 2 options for IFrame API usage. The first option is to register each participant and instantiate EyesonIframe with each accessKey individually. The second way is to make use of the guest token and let each guest register via Eyeson’s default UI.

Advanced Mode:

In advanced mode, you can have more control over the Eyeson default UI inside the iframe. You can interact with the UI and observe meeting events such as join and leave. To enable advanced mode, you need to add your website's origin to the API's "start meeting" request, and then you can use the advanced event handlers in IFrame API.


See the Eyeson documentation for all available config options.



By following the simple steps outlined in this article, you can easily embed Eyeson video conferencing into your web app using the IFrame API.
