Real-Time Video,
built differently

Mux’s Real-Time Video is the most developer-friendly way to build real-time communication into your application, however you want it. It’s WebRTC, the Mux way.

Integrate seamlessly across all video types

Create your content in real time, stream it using a live stream, then save the on-demand asset. Mux prioritizes all these video types equally, so you can rely on best-in-class video infrastructure for every kind of video.

Explore live and on-demand video

// Instantiate the space
let space = new Space('your-jwt');

// Setup event listeners
// for other people sharing media, and leaving
space.on(SpaceEvent.ParticipantTrackSubscribed, addTrack);
space.on(SpaceEvent.ParticipantLeft, removeParticipant);

// Join the Space
let localParticipant = await space.join();

Ship faster, with simplicity and control

Our developer-centric philosophy is core to Real-Time Video. That means it’s easy to build the experiences you want and get to market faster — without sacrificing flexibility or control.
