This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The RTCPeerConnection.onremovestream event handler is a property containing the code to execute when the removestream event, of type MediaStreamEvent, is received by this RTCPeerConnection. Such an event is sent when a MediaStream is removed from this connection.


peerconnection.onremovestream = function;


  • function is the name of a user-defined function, without the () suffix or any parameters, or an anonymous function declaration, such as function(event) {...}. An event handler always has one single parameter, containing the event, here of type MediaStreamEvent.


pc.onremovestream = function(ev) { alert("onremovestream event detected!"); };
